Review – INCREDIMAIL 2.5
Email is most fun when it works—and includes flashy trinkets, too.
Of the latter, IncrediMail has a lot to offer: you can send and receive messages using rich formatting, of course, or apply rich stationery (called IncrediMail letters), add handwritten signatures, send e-cards, insert sounds, and what not; you can also change IncrediMail’s interface with themes, have animated characters announce new mail and have typewriter sounds accompany your, well, typing.
IncrediMail also works. It downloads mail from multiple (POP and IMAP, including, e.g., Windows Live Hotmail, Gmail, and AOL Mail, of course) accounts into ever-growing folders. With the handy search functions, you can focus on certain messages easily in a folder or, of course, search all your archive for keywords and characteristics swiftly.
What is true for emails also applies to people: they are easy to add and to find, can have distinguishing icons or pictures assigned. IncrediMail will also suggest likely people to remember based on your correspondence patterns, and managing groups is a breeze.
However, IncrediMail is not so helpful and courteous with composing messages. You can set up signatures, of course, and have IncrediMail send out-of-office replies; IncrediMail does not, however, include message templates or text snippets for faster answers. Free-form message labels or self-learning folders to organize mail in a very personal or totally automatic manner are missing as well.
You can subscribe to a capable spam filter, though, and IncrediMail comes with message filters that muster the essential tasks. Speaking of subscriptions, IncrediMail does include suitably capable IMAP support.
