"The best!"

August 15, 2010  |  By PQXYZ33

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.10

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have tried every email app there is for OS X (I'm still using 10.3.11). GyazMail is, by far, the best of the bunch, in my opinion.

There is one feature request that I have asked for--several times--that the developer has so far ignored: auto delete of mail in a folder after X number of days. Other than the absence of that feature I am completely satisfied with GyazMail.

"Excellent client"

November 26, 2009  |  By rstoddard

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.9

Pros

Gyazmail is a very solid email application. It's fast, stable, and very easy to set up and use. I have a MobileMe account and use a number of aliases; Gyazmail handles this quite elegantly, allowing me to send from any one of my alias addresses.

Cons

It doesn't yet support encryption/signing, but these features are promised. This is something I would like, but it isn't a deal-breaker for me, so I still give it 5 stars.

Summary

I've used Gyazmail as my default email client for a couple of years now. It is rock solid (unlike Mail.app) and is much quicker and has a cleaner interface. I have several accounts - a combination of IMAP and POP - and it handles them effortlessly. It doesn't have a unified inbox, although it would be simple to filter mail into one inbox using rules, but I frankly prefer keeping accounts separate, so I like it the way it is.

When I switched to Mac, I spent some time looking for alternatives to Mail.app, and tried pretty much every client out there. In the end, none of them had the combination of features, speed, and stability of Gyazmail.

"great email app"

April 18, 2009  |  By rhstoddard2

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.8

Pros

This is a great alternative to Mail.app. It's clean, stab;e, and fast. It also has great support from the developer. It handles multiple accounts (a mix of IMAP and POP) well. It's a great app for the price (or any price).

Cons

No support yet for encryption.

Summary

I like it because it does what it's supposed to do - handle multiple accounts with tens of thousands of messages - without getting in the way,

"Nothing but praise for this app"

March 25, 2008  |  By johnsig

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I was a long-time user of Eudora but had to give it up when it started refusing to print messages. I then decided to give Mailsmith a go, and stuck with it for about a month until its sluggishness began to drive me completely crazy. Then I switched to GyazMail and I have found it to be just what I need to process the sometimes thousands of e-mails which I receive daily from a number of organizational accounts. Used with SpamSieve, the junk-mail filtering is top-notch. Another feature which I really like, is the ability to select a large number of messages and redirect them all to another address; this can be done in Eudora, but can not be done in Mailsmith without extra scripting.

"Desirable replacement for other programs"

February 22, 2008  |  By Dr. T

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've used PM for many, many years. It is a very good program, on average, which is why I chose it over all the others (Mail, Thunderbird, Eudora (now gone), Mailsmith, gnuMail, et al.). However, the program has an almost total lack of support, either in the form a web page on the ctm development site or in the form of responses from the developers. I finally gave up and sought a replacement.

My solution: GyazMail.

I have downloaded a tried essentially all the reputable email programs produced over the last decade. After updating my knowledge of these programs I finally chose to download GyazMail (GM) yesterday. I spent a number of hours exporting UNIX mboxes from PM to GM (which worked flawlessly), and now I have a clone of my PM system, but in GM.

GM worked the first time, with no problems, and has a very shallow learning curve. The most tedious and time-consuming procedure was the copying and importation of all my mboxes, because they could not be copied in a nested manner and therefore had to be copied/imported singly and then reconstructed. This was simple (I wrote a macro in QuicKeys to do so).

I have been happy (so far) with GM and happily paid the $18 to buy the program. The GUI is quite nice, is adjustable to a user's likes (and dislikes), and the set up was painless.

Email choices are idiotypic, but as a long-time experimenter in these types of programs and others, I recommend the PM to GM switch. It is unlikely you will be disappointed.

"Very nice email client!"

December 17, 2007  |  By Obee Juan

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've long been a user of Mailsmith despite its high registration fee because it had a number of features that, at the time several year ago, no one else had that I considered deal-breakers. Since Mailsmith has long gone without an update and is starting to feel a little long in the tooth, I've decided to start looking elsewhere.

Overall GyazMail is a very capable, easy to use email client. You can view attached images inside the messages pane; you can easily setup multiple email accounts (and, as a huge plus, simply set up your outgoing email server once, then simply re-select it for other accounts as you set them up!); you can select custom colors for up to 3 levels of quoted text to help sort out "who said what"; you can optionally suppress "remote" images (a nice security/privacy feature). GyazMail also has a "Remote" feature that lets you download only the message headers. From there, you decide which email messages to finish downloading, or to delete.

Other desirable features of GyazMail include the ability to suppress HTML formatting (a must due to the poor tastes some have in using it, as well as the misuse of it by scam artists). I also like the ability to specify which account I'm sending an email from, or replying from, which I sometimes I find this more desirable than using the "reply-to" field. In most cases, when you reply to an email, you don't have the option to change the "From" field from the email account/address that received the original.

Among a couple things that are missing from this email client that would be very welcome here would be the ability to re-wrap quoted text. All too often, when forwarding emails that have multiple levels of quotes, the text becomes nearly unreadable. One reason I stick with Mailsmith is for its ability to accurately rewrap quoted text so it becomes readable.

One other thing I don't like about GyazMail is that, when composing an email, the outgoing address fields (CC, BC, To) have all the recipients on one line. When sending to multiple recipients, it can be very difficult to be sure you have everyone, or don't have duplicates. There really needs to be a way to toggle the display so that you can see a full list if you wish.

While GyazMail is missing a few features that some "power users" will want, for those who can live without those but still want something more capable than Apple's Mail, this is certainly one of the better alternatives out there.

"Very Flexible Email Program"

May 03, 2007  |  By awaMan

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Building frustrated with Mail.app occasionally crashing and sending garbled Japanese (especially to Windows users) turned me to GyazMail. Those two Mail.app problems have vanished. Now I also have much greater customizability and support is very responsive.

Since the license is one per person, you can install GyazMail on all your Macs, which makes its price very reasonable, although I did get my employer to pay for a copy for my work Mac anyway. :-)

"The best..."

January 20, 2007  |  By PQXYZ33

 |  Version: GyazMail 1.5.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
..e-mail client for the Mac, in my opinion.

After switching from PC to Mac in January of 2004, I tried every e-mail client that I could find for the Mac, and then settled on Gyazmail. I'm still with Gyazmail although I have periodically retried updates of various other e-mail clients (Eudora, Powermail, Mulberry, Entourage, Quickmail, StevePerfect, Thunderbird, Mailsmith, SeaMonkey).

Three things that I missed in Gyazmail as compared to TheBat! (an excellent e-mail client for the PC) were:
1) IMAP
2) the ability to associate a given folder
3) the ability to set retain/delete periods for individual folders
Now that Gyazmail supports IMAP, two requested features to go.

One more thing that would make Gyazmail even better: faster search.

-Don-

P.S. Never a crash or a glitch with Gyazmail. Not true of some of the other Mac e-mail clients.
