Antion: SmarterMail 8.4 is very old, going back to 2008, and SmarterMail 14.X is in BETA right now. Technically, SmarterMail / SmarterTools only supports the current, and last two, generations of a product, so I would seriously consider upgrading your version of SmarterMail to the most current version: SmarterMail 13.3.5535, and, when it is released, 14.X.
SmarterMail 13.3 is must faster, and much more secure, than SmarterMail 8.4, and SmarterMail 14.X will bring additional features. Note that SmarterMail 14.X requires .NET 4.5.
Both SmarterMail 13.3 and SmarterMail 14.X bring new connectivity for smart phones because they have resolved many issues with POP3, IMAP, and SMTP protocols.
If you want a personal, test account, to see the benefits of SmarterMail 14.X, please contact me off-list
, and provide me with your e-mail address so I can setup a test account on one of our test domains for you and e-mail you credentials.
You can play with the web interface and also attempt to connect the user's iPhone, via IMAP or POP, and see the difference in both the capabilities, and response, in the more recent version(s) of SmarterMail.
