BlackBerrys now have a built in media or SD card that is typically used for holding music, pictures or videos. tiggit mail can store email messages on the SD card rather than in the main store of the handheld. This frees space within the handheld for other things, and allows tiggit mail to handle vastly more messages.

When tiggit uses the SD card the body of each message is stored - in encoded form - on the SD card, and the mail headers are stored in the device. In this way, even if the SD card is removed, reference to the email messages is not lost. If there is no SD card present, tiggit will automatically store the entire message in the device memory.

Using WiFi

Many BlackBerrys now have built in WiFi, and this provides a very cost effective way of connecting your BlackBerry to download email etc. tiggit can use WiFi to connect to your mail servers. tiggit can be configured in one of three modes

  • cellular only
  • cellular and wifi
  • wifi only

The cellular only and wifi only settings speak for themselves. In cellular and wifi mode, tiggit will use wifi if there is a wifi network available, and if not it will switch to using the cellular network.

tiggit tunnel

One of the important features of tiggit mail is it's ability to use http to tunnel out of locked-down corporate environments, this allows users to access their internet email on corporate devices.

If the tunnel is used, connections are made over http(s) to a server operated by tiggit. This server acts as a proxy and connects to your internet email server. Messages are passed via this tunnel server to your handheld. tiggit is able to use both WAP and regular http to connect to the tunnel server.

When sending messages tiggit can engage in a full SMTP exchange with the smtp server. When routing messages via the tunnel this can be lengthy and potentially unreliable. tiggit also includes a technology to send a message via the proxy server. The message is packaged and sent via http post to the proxy, the proxy then undertakes the smtp exchange with your smtp server on your behalf.

If you make use of the tunnel services, your data will pass through servers operated by tiggit software. Your data is not retained on these servers. The servers are located in a high performance secure data centre in Dallas Texas, USA.

Use of the tunnel is optional. Please review the support pages and FAQ, or contact tiggit@tiggit.com should you require further information about the tunnel.
