tiggit mail version 1.1 available for preview

tiggit mail version 1.1 is now available for early adopter preview. The current build still has a number of defects, and some features are not yet complete, nevertheless given the demand for some of the features, and the benefit from expanding the number of users trying the new code, I am making tiggit mail available on a preview basis for currently licensed users. If you are interested in trying the preview, please read all of the information in this post.

Preview means that the software is provided for test and evaluation purposes only, and that users agree to provide information about the software, its functionality and performance. Preview also means that there is no documentation. Version 1.1.0 may change the way in which features work without explicit notification. Preview is only available for BlackBerry 8000 and 9000 series devices able to support BlackBerry API version 4.2 and later.
Registered users can download version 1.1.0, by clicking here and entering the email address that was originally used to register for tiggit mail. Exisiting license tokens will continue to work with this version.

Users should take care that any data that is stored within tiggit mail is kept elsewhere as this upgrade will cause all of the mailboxes to be erased. Prior to installing version 1.1, users should remove any earlier versions of tiggit mail.
Tunnel users must change their tunnel setting from http://www.tiggit.com to tiggittunnel.dynalias.org failing to make this change will result in not being able to send messages using the singlePost mechanism. Challenge authentication mechanisms cannot currently be used with singlePost.
