"GyazMail will not Replace Eudora Yet"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Well I gave GyazMail 1.5 a brief try. Not bad, but it has problems that will prevent me from using it now. These are all apparent, since I only used it for a day. I use Eudora, so everything is compared to Eudora.
1. Most important since I am on slow dialup - it has no way to limit the amount of a message downloaded. EG, in Eudora and most other email programs, I can download the 1st 10 kb only to see if I want something. They are removed from the server when trashed. This limits spam download time and large attached files can by saved for when I go to work where I have DSL. I see no way to download headers only.
This alone nixes GyazMail for me.
2. I could only open 1 mail window at a time. I could not, eg, open 5 emails in their own windows, so I can easily quote from multiple sources in one reply.
3. Mailboxes are Account specific. With 12 different accounts I check, this becomes redundant and a hassle. Each account has its own Inbox and Trash etc... And, creating a new Folder goes into the In box by default. I could not get an OS X folder outside of any Account Folder.
4. The way mail is stored is OK, but not as nice as Eudora, which stores mailboxes as the mailbox name, each mailbox one long text file. GyazMail stores as POPaccount0->Folder 0, Folder 1 etc and the mail each email as a cryptic file without a kind named 1168219630.1322_0, .... They are plain text though, so Spotlight could help locate info. It appears tht one could Synch mails on different computers by synching the GyazMail Folder in Applic Support.
5. One has to use a 3rd party
I did not try filters (rules) which look like they work like most 'modern' email programs, since I will be deleting this program.
