Future Versions of Palm OS to Include Full Email Client
There will soon be an email app bundled with the Palm OS that will be able to access Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino, as well as POP3 and IMAP mail servers.

Visto already makes an email client for the Palm OS, Pocket PC, and other platforms. I would say it's a safe bet that the one bundled with future versions of the Palm OS will be very similar to it.
ZDnet has a video of a demonstration of this app on a Sony TG50 at:

There are some pictures of the Treo 600 floating around which show it using Visto, so I think it's a pretty safe bet that that will be the email client for it. One thing I noticed in all of the screenshots I've seen is that Visto seems to use a single-line list view where the subject line and "from" field are all on the same line. I, personally, can't stand this type of view and part of my reason for choosing SnapperMail was because it offered a two-line mode. Interestingly, both Palm's current email solution (VersaMail) and Handspring's (TreoMail) offer a two-line mode as well. Hopefully, Visto will add this functionality as well.

"this doesn't mean that Palm OS licensees will be required to include this application with all their handhelds. Instead, it will be provided to the licensees as an option"
What exactly does this sentence mean?
I mean, right now (unless I misunderstood and the Zire does include the default mail app) there are Palm OS devices that don't include all the "standard" applications. Is that what this means, or is this going to be some kind of "extra cost option"?Rev. Peter da Silva, ULC

I am certainly looking forward to the release of palm os6. Though I am an avid pocketpc fan, it seems as if microsofts hands are tied in its development. They dont want it to compete too much with their other desktop and tablet pc products. Palm is not under these same constraints and they can, if they choose, make a product that vastly surpases pocketpc's in the long run.
