Active Mail is an e-mail download manager, greatly increasing the ease of using the Nokia 7650 as an e-mail client, increasing convenience and reducing costs by automatically downloading only those e-mails you are specifically interested in. With Active Mail the Nokia 7650 you are virtually always connected to your mailbox. Active Mail integrates a wide range of features which together deliver a functionally rich download manager – greatly enhancing the messaging capabilities of the Nokia 7650 phone.
Mail Retrieval Scheduler:
Active Mail allows you to schedule the download of e-mail using custom-defined schedules. For example, you can configure Active Mail to download e-mail every morning at 7:30am, and have your e-mail ready on your phone at the start of the day. Or configure Active Mail to check for new e-mail every 15mins, and always be up-to-date with the latest e-mail. With the scheduler you have the option to define which components of the email will be downloaded (i.e. headers, message body, and attachments) depending on size. You can also define more advanced rules to determine which emails are downloaded and which are automatically deleted (see Mail retrieval rules below).
Mail Retrieval Rules:
Active Mail’s retrieval rules are designed to emulate the decision making processing you use when manually deciding which e-mails to download. Rules can be defined to determine which e-mails are downloaded based on sender, subject, size, and priority. You can also define rules to automatically delete e-mails based on the same criteria, thus helping to manage spam.
The mail retrieval rules are applied no matter which of the Active Mail download options is employed (i.e. the scheduler, notification processing, or manual download).
SMS Notifications Processing:
If your e-mail services provide a feature where you are notified by SMS when new e-mails are available in their inbox, Active Mail can process these notifications. Upon receipt of such a notification Active Mail will automatically connect to your e-mail service and download the new mail.
Marking Mail Headers for Full Download:
Often when you receive a large e-mail you may wish to have that email available locally on your phone, but do not wish to take the time to manually download the email. The Active Mail message browser displays all e-mails which have not yet been fully downloaded. Through the browser you can mark those e-mails that you wish to download the next time you check your email (e.g. via the scheduler). The Active Mail message browser displays the message size, so you can judge the potential time required to download an email.
Manual Mail Retrieval:
In addition to the automated e-mail retrieval options previously described, Active Mail supports manual (interactive) download of e-mail. By using Active Mail to download e-mail in this way you take advantage of the retrieval rules defined within Active Mail. Active mail also provides a command to download mail from all configured e-mail accounts, thus greatly decreasing the effort required to manage multiple e-mail accounts.
