I have a Hotmail Plus account so I have been able to access my hotmail account on my iPhone but I couldn’t access my folders and I had to go back to the web interface to permanently delete my mail. It was an okay solution so that I could at least read it on the go, but nFluent just came out with a new app mBoxMail [iTunes Link].
I installed it yesterday and I love this app. It is a bit pricey at $9.99 but I have to say that I didn’t even hesitate to buy it. It is very easy to setup and very intuitive and straightforward to use.
nFluent created a short demo on their web page so you can see how it works.
Here are the features of the software according to nFluent’s website:
In today’s world, your information is only as secure as your email account. There is no middle man with m•Box Mail. This application speaks directly to the Windows Live Hotmail servers so you do not have to worry about your confidential information getting stored elsewhere. Your email, user name and password are not stored outside your mobile device. Passwords are securely kept in iPhone’s key store so they do not get into the wrong hands.
