So I've now joined the masses and go one of the new iPhone 3Gs's. I had a sony ericsson before that was looking kinda battered, so I was indeed of a new phone and be a gadget lover I though I'd go the the new iPhone. I want a phone that allows be to surf the web (the real web, not wap!) and check my mail, plus be good for games.

I the iPhone has lived upto my expectations, it's a great phone. I don't think i could go back to not having one now. I don't ever plan to stuf the wap web again, thats for sure. The app store is fantastic. Their is a decent about of free apps to and the ones that need to be paid for, are a lot cheaper than the games I used to buy on my old phone.

The web works really well, it's pretty much like I'm using a small computer to surf the web, the email works really well to, though it might be a curse been able to check work email anywhere. Having said that, email account can be turned on and off.

I've only had it a couple of days so far, but it's be pretty much all good so far. I think if I had to pick one negative thing about the phone, it would be imap email folders. Most of my mail is filtered by server side email filters, which mean they don't end up in my inbox, but go strait to the folders. The iPhone seems unable to check for new mail in any folder other than the inbox, which is quite annoying. You have to check each folder one by one. Love to know if their is a work around for this?

I found this great little utility the other day that I though I'd blog about. It's called IMAPFilter and can be found here. Here is the blurb from the site:
IMAPFilter is a mail filtering utility. It connects to remote mail servers using the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP), sends searching queries to the server and processes mailboxes based on the results. It can be used to delete, copy, move, flag, etc. messages residing in mailboxes at the same or different mail servers. The 4rev1 and 4 versions of the IMAP protocol are supported.
I'm now using this to get me email back under control. I've created a configuration file for IMAPFilter that will remove all mail from my mailing list mail folders which is older than 30 days. It also marks all mail in the Junk folder as seen. I suppect I'm going to be able to add other stuff too.

The utility is great because it can perform operations on the whole mail box. Mail filters only really work on the incomming message.
