Review – Foxmail 5.0 – Free Email Program
Foxes are known for their smartness and Foxmails lives up to that image. This excellent email client has a lot more to offer than the first impression might suggest, and Foxmails combines the funny and the useful in a great manner.
Take Foxmail’s stationery, for example, which can come with colorful HTML formatting but also serves as flexible message templates for repeat messages.
Other great Foxmail features include a remote mailbox tool, powerful filters and simple, but effective message labels, Hotmail access, and support for multiple users.
Both rule-based and Bayesian spam filters are there to take the junk out of email. Unfortunately, training the adaptive filter, essential for high efficiency, is a bit cumbersome.
It’s also a drawback that Foxmail doesn’t support IMAP accounts, and Foxmail’s message editor could use a bit more power. All in all, Foxmails is powerful, but easy to use and fun, though.
