Please note, while it works on blackberry and Android, Apple is currently not allowing any developers access to the SMS text messaging on your phone so this app only works with Email and Google Voice SMS at this time.
vBox works with Exchange only if the IMAP protocol is enable for your email account. If you’re not sure, please ask your IT support to enable it for you and ask them the incoming and outgoing server to use with the corresponding ports.
vBox hands free messenger supports all Yahoo accounts but you need to activate the POP option in your Yahoo account settings. Note that some older Yahoo email accounts do not have the option to enable a POP account.

What's New in Version 1.3.5
- Sign up wizard
- Automatic email account detection
- Enhanced voice recognition
- Bug fixes and no more crashing!
You know you're in trouble when there are misspells in titles for entering info - goto Settings > Email Accounts and the section for the outgoing server states "Outgoing Mai Serverl". This points to a lack of QA and explains other functionality issues such as; getting an error that either your user account or password is incorrect when in reality the account is in use by another connection which in this case is the iPhone email system using it. Fact is if you turn on Only Read New Emails, then it never reads any emails. Turn it off then it reads everything all the time. Turning on Prevent Auto Lock doesn't allow for the program to work ( and the phone still sleeps) thus when the phone sleeps the program does nothing. And yes I've killed the program and restarted the app after making changes. Upon restart of the app it always goes to checking email every 30 seconds (this is not one of the settings options) regardless of what you established under settings.
I agree. NASTY!!!!
It spams people that you read mail from without telling you! What a crock. How e is this possible Apple? Who let this through? This really CAN'T be allowed can it? What about minors using the app? And who knows what they put in their emails. It can be whatever cash crop they want (read: porn). I only found out because someone wrote and told me. Awful despicable deceitful unscrupulous douce bags!
HUGE waste of money
Bought the in-app upgrad to Pro. What a waste. Five bucks for an application that works occasionally, ignores the settings, and sends spam to the sender of every email you send until you figure out how to turn that off. I sure wish I could get my money back.
