It's mostly mobile phones and tablets. My crackberry also, i'm told, has a hateful habit of breaking References: headers and splitting threads unnecessarily, which is about on par with not splitting the thread when it should be split.

I know there are decent mail clients for android (because Jesse wrote two of them), but you'll never get one on iOS thanks to apple's pathetic policies about replacing in built phone behaviour and I don't think there's access on crackberry to build one that uses BIS (in which case you lose one of the main reasons to have a crackberry...)

/j (who really thinks it's about time apple and RIM learned to write decent mail software for mobile devices)
