    This says it all

    http://www.mfluent.com/mboxmail.php

    This was just released. There is no way apple would have allowed this complete hotmail email app a month ago. They must be having a change of heart. I've also noticed in the last few days, there are a ton of new apps being released.

    I also posted this in the app store forum but I figured this was good news for all to see.

    Hmmm....I wonder what this means for the application (Mailsmith, was it?) that was denied a month or so ago. I'd love to have an application that better fit in with Gmail.

    9.99

    For 9.99 they can keep that app. MS need to release one for free.I just dont see why anyone would buy this app.

    A$12.99 is simply way too high for this application.. i will stick with "forward to gmail solution".

    Why post the same thread in both the app store forum and the iphone forum?

    Why do you care? Glad you wasted your time responding.

    Not everyone visits both forums and I thought it was important enought to post in both places.

    Not sure why DigMe cares. I can tell you why I care: It's hard enough to sift through all the "noise" on forums to get real "information" (defined as something you didn't already know). Posting the same thing twice makes it a little harder.

    It's also against the rules in every single messageboard I've ever taken part in. Like spamdumpster said, it's hard enough to keep the signal-to-noise ratio at an acceptable level.

    Doesn't this app violate licensing rules?

    I saw this app recently too. It appears they reverse engineering the Livemail protocol without permission. Wonder how it got through?

    MS should release a free one and be done with it IMO.

    +1, so will I. Although most people don't have that option, due to Hotmail policy inconsistencies.
