Last month, Google acquired the reMail, and also decided to remove reMail from the App Store. The company decided to open source the code, which’s now available on Google Code as remail-iphone under the Apache 2.0 License. “As someone who is passionate about mobile email, my hope is that developers interested in making email-related apps can use reMail code as a starting point. Part of the reason email apps are hard is because you have to pay the tax of figuring out how to download email via IMAP, parse MIME messages, handle attachments, and store data. reMail has already solved these problems. If you have a great mobile email idea, I hope you will find reMail's source code helpful in your quest. I've also created the group remail-iphone on Google Groups, which is a great place to ask questions. Best of luck with your projects!”
