Free LogicMail v2.0 Beta POP3 SMTP and IMAP Client for BlackBerry

My buddy Derek has been working on the opensource LogicMail POP3 and IMAP client for BlackBerry for awhile now. There has not been many updates to the app/project in awhile until the latest v2.0 release he just told me about. This new release adds a whole boat load of features and consolidates the many device and OS specific versions of the app. In short if you need a full fledged IMAP, SMTP, and/or POP3 client for your BlackBerry then look no further than LogicMail and the latest 2.0 beta.

The new version 2.0 beta of the LogicMail app brings:

  • a Step-by-step setup wizard
  • All network communications now happens in the background, and mail data is now locally cached
  • Improved look and feel
  • Support for both local and remote Sent/Drafts folders
  • Ability to copy messages between folders, even across accounts
  • Improved message composition, with an Outbox that holds messages until successfully sent
  • Keyboard shortcuts mimicking the native messaging application, and touchscreen device support
  • Able to read E-Mails written in many different languages and character encodings.
  • Supports OS 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 5.0, and 6.0
  • Any plenty more!

To pick up this new beta head on over to from your BlackBerry or visit the SourceForge Download Page. You can also head on over to the new LogicMail Setup Guide for instructions on how to setup the app. You still need to know the basics of setting up an email account but this will give you another email access option beyond the limits of RIMs BIS and BES service.

  1. Sounds like a useful beta. Unfortunately I received an error 907 invalid cod when trying to download.

    • It would be helpful to know what carrier you’re on, and what BlackBerry OS version you’re running. I’d also make sure that you’re not using the WAP browser. Its been a very long time since someone has complained about a 907 error, and the cause is usually something odd about their network/phone being unusually picky about the JAD. Best to contact me directly (contact info on project website) to work this issue one-on-one, where I can check server logs, etc.

  2. If anyone else has download trouble, the app is also available via MobiHand:

  3. hey ronen

    how will this work with BES. my work works gmail and hotmail. Thus having to put up with the inefficient gmail app. Might this be a work around?

    • Definitely. I should work like a charm for any account that has IMAP or POP3 access like Gmail. Not sure about Hotmail… Didn’t know anybody uses that anymore. They used to charge for access.

      • lol… i was joking about the hotmail. But use gmail and this whole bes thing has been a pain… i will download and report soon. as soon as i can get permission to load some apps.. cheers

  4. Incoming on POP works like a charm, but sending on SMTP keeps rebooting my phone 🙁

    T-mo 9700 running OS

    • appears to be a DOCOMO release, not a T-Mobile release, so there could be bugs in the OS. I’ve seen OS bugs that cause strange reboots before, but not in a long time.

      If you’re using TLS for SMTP, see if your mail service supports plain SSL instead.

      I’d test this myself, but RIM hasn’t released a simulator for

  5. It’s well done. But it seems that it doesn’t support BIS yet.

  6. The IMAP seemed to work fine for getting e-mail from the server. However, I use my gmail for outbound SMTP. I never could get the smtp client to authenticate against any of the gmail smtp server configurations.

    • These outgoing server settings work for Gmail:
      Use secure connection: SSL
      Port: 465
      Authentication: PLAIN
      Username: [email protected]
      Password: ********

      You also need to quit and restart LogicMail after changing the settings for it to work. (This is a known bug, hopefully will be fixed this weekend.)

      • Didn’t seem to work. Unable to Open Connection. I did exit after configuring to the settings above. Even rebooted just to be sure. Still no send.

      • Probably should have stated I’m on a Torch on AT&T with ver

        • AT&T could be blocking ports. You can try TLS (port 25) to see if that works, but they’re actually more likely to block that. Also, if you can get on WiFi, that’s more likely to work.

          Those settings work fine for me on T-Mobile, on my 9700 /w OS (yes, yesterday’s leak)

  7. Can anyone offer a way to configure on a Exchange Server?

    • Hi,

      Most of Exchange-Servers allows also an other protocol like POP3 or Imap to pull the mails.
      I also use ‘Astrasync’ to synchronize my emails and contacts and calendar on a Blackberry.


  8. If anyone is experiencing strange crashes when trying to send E-Mail, I just posted build, which should fix the issue:

  9. I was seeing the reboot issue as well. So far, 251 looks like it did send and no reboot. Crossing fingers to see if it holds.

  10. One thing I am noticing on the Torch. While the Pinch to Zoom works, when you have zoomed in, you then can’t scroll left and right. Up and down still works. But it seems everything is left justified and you can’t get to the right side of the message unless you zoom back out. Shows up on thinks like .jpg tables from airlines.

    • Is this with HTML-only E-Mail? If so, I’ve seen some strange issues myself. On OS 5.0 and older, the API I’m using defaults to an old rendering engine that at least sizes itself correctly. On OS 6.0, it winds up using the new WebKit engine, and sizes itself all wrong. (its worse on the 9700/9780 in 6.0 where you can’t pinch)

      I’ve tried figuring this out before, but didn’t have too much luck. I’ll have to keep trying until I figure something out.

      • Yes. It is in HTML viewing. Tried any number of the email messages in my inbox. All of them seemed to be left justified. Like I say, it seems to zoom fine. But once zoomed, you are stuck on the left side of the e-mail. The only way to see the right side is to zoom back out till you can see the full page of the email message.

        Just wanted to give you the feed back for further development.

        It does appear the crashing after send is fixed.

  11. Just installed 2.0 beta for access to my work OWA email account. Wonderful & simple app sufficient for my general email checking without having to pay extra per month for the dedicated BB data facility with my airtime carrier! Please do let me know when ver 2.1 will be ready … eagerly awaiting to install on my Bold 9000. Thanks!

  12. good alternative for those not on BIS.. there’s hope that developers will release some email apps for playbook

  13. Be great to see this on PlayBook but with the way RIM wants to control the email experience I can’t imagine them approving this.

    I guess my question would be what capability does this give me that the native POP/IMAP can’t do?
