Editors' review

With its straightforward interface and whimsical attitude, IncrediMail appeals to the casual e-mailer, but actually offers enough features--like Exchange server support--to be functional for more serious endeavors. You can personalize your messages with background stationery from a variety of categories, including animals, art, technology, and moods. The program installs with about 50 backgrounds, most with a cartoony feel, and you can download more online or create your own with Letter Creator (a 10-use trial comes with this download). It supports recorded voice attachments, and the premium version supports skins.

There are a few drawbacks. The overall interface lacks pizazz and looks like it was last overhauled back when emoticons were new. There's a questionnaire that must be filled out when installing the program, annoying even at three questions long. More significantly, IncrediMail turns into quite the resource pig when playing around with graphics-heavy backgrounds.

The features are solid, though. The program offers basic e-mail client functions, including sending, receiving, and organizing messages; managing your address book; and creating rules for how to handle certain messages. Among its other included features are an integrated JunkFilter that lets you assign permission for senders or domains, IMAP support via a POP3 emulator, and Message Rules functions that work in concert with JunkFilter. IncrediMail makes standard e-mail a bit more fun for home users, especially for kids and kids at heart.

    Pros

    Love this program.When my computer didn't come with Outlook Express I wanted a desktop e-mail program. Didn't to purchase the license for premium but I did and I am very happy.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Summary

    I could have continued the free version but decided to purchase the license. So far I have had 2 recent issues that support helped me with quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend this program.

    "Great Program for Me"

    February 23, 2011   |   By rvrnc

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Easy to use, able to customize emails, the paid version has no advertisements.

    Cons

    Some say it is for children, others say it is annoying, others say it is a memory hog. My only disappointment is the new customer service.

    Summary

    I have been using Incredimail since it first came out in 1998, or so it has worked fine for me through several computers. I have never had an issue with it. I'm not sure what they mean by a memory hog, I'm not a techie. Some say it is childish. I guess it depends on how many emoticons and art work you choose to use. Once in a while I will get creative and use some of the stuff they promote. I use it as my Email client for home and business, and I have not had any problems. I have heard people say that one is not taken seriously when using the program for business. I guess if you are in a business mode one will not use emoticons and other stuff that Incredimail provides. l would like to know what they mean by being a memory hog?

    Cons

    Incredimail 2 not worth the download

    "CANNOT SEND EMAILS OUT"

    January 25, 2011   |   By RAJAN_VAIRAWANATHAN

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    USED OVER 15 YEARS AGO

    Cons

    CANNOT USE NOW AS IT IS NOT SENDING EMAILS OUT. I GET INCOMING. SO I REMOVED THE PROGRAMME AND WILL TRY ANOTHER

    Summary

    I READ MANY NEGATIVE REPORTS ABOUT ITS PERFORMANCE. LIKE SKYPE, MANY FACE PROBLEMS.

    Updated on Jan 25, 2011

    ALSO IT DOES NOT CONNECT TO MY YAHOO MAIL ADDRESS WHEN I WANT TO SEND/RECEIVE. I ONLY RECEIVED THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT FROM INCREDIMAIL INTO THE INBOX AND THATS IT AND NOT THE OTHER YAHOO MAILS. EVEN THOUGH I TYPE IN THE CORRECT USER NAME AND PASSWORD OF YAHOO, IT KEEPS SAYING THAT IT IS NOT CORRECT.

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Lots of bell and whistles

    Cons

    crashes often, slow to connect, sometimes won't send messages. I've tried to get these things resolved with incredimail but no luck.
