Version 1.1 Released December 22, 2005
SFVersaMail is a SatForms plug-in extension that enables you to send
email messages using the Palm VersaMail email client.
The V1.1 release addresses compatibility issues with VersaMail 3.x that
is included on several newer Palm devices, including the Treo 650,
LifeDrive, and TX.
When you use the SendVersaMail method, a new outgoing email message is
created, with the To, CC, BCC, Subject, and message Body fields filled
in with the information you passed in to the extension. This message is
silently deposited into the VersaMail Outbox, where it will be sent the
next time you send and receive mail in VersaMail. This function is
supported up to VersaMail version 2.7.1.
When you use the SendVersaMailWithFile method, a new outgoing email
message is created, with the To, CC, BCC, Subject, and message Body
fields filled in with the information you passed in to the extension,
and the specified file is attached to the email. This message with file
attachment is silently deposited into the VersaMail Outbox, where it
will be sent the next time you send and receive mail in VersaMail. This
function is supported up to VersaMail version 2.7.1.
A SendFileByMail function is also included. It allows you to specify a
file to send as an attachment, then brings up an email compose form
where you manually fill in the recipient address and subject. This
function can be used on PalmOS 4.0 and higher devices, and can also be
used with SnapperMail instead of VersaMail.
The SendVersaMailHelper function creates an outgoing email in VersaMail
and switches to the mail compose screen in VersaMail where the user can
edit the message and then must tap on the Send, Outbox, Drafts, or
Cancel button to complete the process. The user must then manually
restart your application. This function is supported in VersaMail 3.0
NOTE: SFVersaMail supports the sending of attached files in their native
document formats, so the recipient does not need to do any file
conversions to use the files. For example, text files created with
SFTextFile arrive as regular text files in the recipient's email. JPG
photos attached to an email arrive as standard JPG images, SFInkView BMP
files arrive as regular BMPs, etc. Palm PRC and PDB databases can also
be sent as attachments, of course. Again, this
function is only supported up to VersaMail version 2.7.1.
SFVersaMail supports Palm VersaMail 2.0 and higher. Due to a limitation
of VersaMail, file attachments cannot exceed 60KB in size with the
