Chapter 8. Staying In Touch with Email > The Scoop on Treo Email

The Scoop on Treo Email

Unlike some other mobile devices such as the BlackBerry 7100 series, the Treo 600/650 separates text messaging from email messaging. Apparently, Palm's logic is that email communication is different enough from Short Message Service/Multimedia Messaging System (SMS/MMS) communication that they shouldn't be combined. I don't necessarily disagree—if nothing else, the Treo's separation of text and email messaging makes it a little easier to understand how each form of communication works as well as how they differ from one another. The end result is that you use two different applications for email and text messaging: VersaMail (email) and Messaging (text messaging).

To use the VersaMail account on your Treo to manage email effectively, knowing how many email accounts you want to use and how they are set up is important. Maybe you already have an account or two on a desktop or notebook computer, or maybe you're starting fresh with an entirely new account. Either way, it's worth covering some email basics before jumping into the specifics of the VersaMail application.
