Thank you for the explanation.  I wish Nokia or whoever needs to would just 
make the older email client available to diablo users.  Let users pick.

This reminds me of Microsoft's problem.  They want people to switch to Vista 
(windows 7) whatever but for alot of people XP will work for quite a while,  
Microsoft isn't given them a chance to stay with the old.  It is all about 
forcing a revenue stream, although in Nokia's case this isn't true since 
diablo was a free upgrade, so it is something else with them, but the  end 
result is people are forced to stay behind or go  forward with a solution 
that isn't a nice.  I do realize that you can't keep everything working 
forever on every new platform but Modest is missing some fairly important 
pieces and doesn't seem geared towards a tablet users.

On a side note I've switched to using Panucci for my media player, why because 
it has nice big buttons, and allows me to move the timeline around with one 
touch of my finger instead of trying to grab, hold and slide the timeline 
with the builtin media player.  I wish nokia gave us a way to remove the apps 
we didn't want from diablo and replace them, memory is at a premium and 
currently Modest and Media Player are just  wasting precious space.
