That recent Apple promo line fits, dammit.

Overview:
The Foleo team is looking for a talented engineer to join the applications group and work on the email application.

Must possess strong skills in the areas of application design, solid API design principles and have a strong understanding of customer and workflow issues.

• Familiarity with Linux
• Self motivated and proactive

Well, well. I’ve highlighted two important bits: this job posting was reposted today, and the mention of pop3 and imap.

So, Palm is still working on it. And does the pop3 and imap requirements mean this email app for the Foleo will work via WiFi rather than requiring syncing email via a Treo or other phone?
