We are pleased to announce that our IMAP Notes service is being released into public beta test today.
IMAP Notes joins our recently released CalDAV offering, which along with traditional IMAP and our mobile apps help to bring FastMail to your mobile device.
Notes has been a FastMail feature for a while now, and we have also supported adding Notes via Apple iOS and Mac OS devices backed by standard IMAP. We are happy to bring these two services together with the beta release of IMAP Notes.
Notes saved in the FastMail web interface will be available via Apple devices and vice-versa. Android users will require a suitable third-party app.
Of course, being a beta there are a few things you should know before clicking the opt-in button.
Rich media notes created in Apple clients are not fully supported; any note with an attached image will not be editable.
Folders are not supported, only notes in the root Notes folder will be displayed.
The backend is yet to be fully tested under heavy load or with unusual data formats
During the beta period we're monitoring the system closely and will be fixing things quickly as they come up. You can also help by emailing us with any comments, questions or problems.
So now all the disclaimers are out of the way, you can sign up for the IMAP Notes beta here:
