Mobile Mail

When I hear those on podcasts talk about removing mail from their phones I think why would you do that? Despite the presence of spam, email remains the central means for written communications between organisations large and small, regardless of location, or role in the organisation. Email’s ubiquity is it’s power. For many years after the mass acceptance of email there was no tangible mechanism for using it away from a desktop computer, using a slow cabled dial-up connection. A wireless connection from a handheld device was a pipe-dream, the stuff of science fiction. That we can have a reliable, usable and indeed often powerful email client in our hands should be embraced.
