    Search google for empower and bbsmart. That should be what you're looking for.

    I used Empower standard, and switched to BBsmart when I switched BB's. Not really a fair comparison, since Empower Pro would have more features than the Standard version I had.

    Having said that - I'm extremely happy with BBsmart. works great, shows all pics in emails, and allows for a lot of customization.

    I haven't used BBSmart. But for me EmPower is an absolute must have. Clean, fast and formats email very nicely.

    I think both products have a free trial. See which works for you. Either way you go, you'll be happy.

    Ok guys another Newb question lol... im noticing empower has both a standard and pro edition whats the difference aside from additonal features... im assuming they both display images and all that good stuff.. so is the pro worth the extra 20.00?

    Personally I prefer empower. It loads a lot faster. I've used empower pro, I haven't tried empower regular so I'm not sure what the difference is.. Both bbsmart and empower come with a free trial.

    I use BB Smart and like it a lot, mostly because of the email templates (smartsay). I don't know if Empower has templates or not. I would agree however that Empower loads faster.

    I use Empower Pro. I don't know the difference between regular and pro, but I like it a lot. It's the only software that I've actually paid for so far for BB ($30, and I think it was money VERY well spent.) Although, emails that you SEND from your BB will be in text format, not HTML...unless there's a setting somewhere that I couldn't find to change that, but I was really more concerned with seeing emails in HTML on my phone than sending them in HTML from it.

    Thanks for all the great input everyone i downloaded the free 10 day trial of empower and def think i will be purchasing the license when it expires as i think it is SOOO worth it... i too am not so concerned about sending emails in HTML format JMT9779 but BC of my profession i get alot of HTML format emails so its a must to be able to easily read them and EMPOWER does that quickly and efficiently for me!
