Is your popmail i-appli only able to read mail accounts on the server from
which it was downloaded? Or does it communicate with a web app which gets the
mail on behalf of the user, in which case it's not, technically, _really_ a
I have an i-appli which provides NASDAQ level II streaming quotes (which is
amazingly cool to see on a keitai, if you're into that sort of thing), but
since i-applis can only communicate with the server they came from, I have to
write a servlet which relays the data to the i-appli (which uses up my valuable
bandwidth), and optimizes the packet size to 128 bytes. I see this
'commwithdownloadedserveronly' as a *major* limitation to i-applis. Does
anybody know if this feature can be overridden by the user, or even if it will
be eliminated in future releases? I have a vision were my personal i-appli
user agent goes out to various sources on the Internet and checks my mail,
stock quotes, news headlines, weather, etc. (preferably using SOAP or the
like), which would be incredibly useful. As it stands now, your i-appli app is
just one part of a large app which must include server side support. I think
this is an unnecessary drain on bandwidth and more importantly, developer
