Because BIS is not available on BB10, I was forced to get rid of my @rogers.blackberry.net address. The new BB way is to use only web based or exchange type mail service. However, I need the ability to forward emails to the phone only. I can live with the manual copy/removal of emails from a web based server to a "local" folder on the phone, however, this is not available to me today. Ther is no way to create a local folder for email archival. The BB10 os lacks an email client, on OS7 my @blackberry.net address would benefit from a full line of email client preferences for signature and the setup of a "reply to" address. This is totally inexistent on BB10. It needs to come back!! Cloud services and web based applications are the trend right now, however, local email clients where the emails are not accessible to any hacker with too much time on his hands, where I can have all my stuff in my own secure pocket, is still a required feature for many.
The company that gave us "your email client in your pocket" is taking it back and telling us "use web based apps that everybody else is using"?? I find it hard to believe.
Are there plans for a email client app for local management of emails on BB10?? I understand it cannot send emails because of BIS's death, however it could be use for local email storage, and reply function could open the main email imap or pop account for sending it out.
