"Overnight Failure"

February 20, 2012  |  By Kuznetsa

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

Upload to FB button
Fun emoticons anad backgrounds

Cons

Slows compuer
Frequent crashes
Hijacks settings even when asked not to
Incomplete uninstall
NO customer service, even for paid customers

Summary

Once upon a time this was a cute and easy email program. Even worth paying for. Then it grew. Now it's bulky, slow, and apparently malware ridden. It died on me and took all my saved receipts and contacts with it, despite frequent attempts to backup, extract, or export data. Customer serivce told me to redownload, change settings in msconfig, reset my browser and other weird stuff. Their slogan is, or used to be Goodbye Boring Email. I am now saying Hello Boring email and never ever going back. It makes me really sad.

"Incredimail has become incredibly TERRIBLE"

January 26, 2012  |  By Jonnieb57

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

There are still some pros, but these have gradually faded into the background - losing in intensity and effectiveness over time. It is indeed true that there are many features that allow one to quickly pep up emails, adding animations and backgrounds in a fairly effortless manner. BUT.....

Cons

ONCE UPON A TIME THE PROGRAM WAS GOOD. That is why I had tested it and then payed for my membership.

In the meantime it has become something else entirely.

The SPAM FILTER function (which you have to pay for) is USELESS. It lets so many things through, does not learn and is a great waste of money. My free Yahoo account is far, far superior.

As a lifetime payed member there should be no advertisement on the outgoing emails. SURPRISE - suddenly they have appeared again! I also receive adverts for their new products - - constantly jumping up at me when I open the program.... "please buy me too!!!" WHAT? This is inexcuseable.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT - what is this??? This has deteriorated to nothing more than an automatic message transmitting service. No one answers my questions any more - no one cares!!! After all, I have already paid, right? Inexcuseable.

Summary

Do NOT buy any Incredimail services. The free stuff is for sure still good (and enticing), but they are currently trying to get you hooked.... and doing a good job..... but when you are an addict, they will destroy your services and disappoint you , leaving you frustrated, alone, and wondering just what happened.

"Long-time user disappointed with new and beta versions"

January 14, 2012  |  By salyatticum

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

Great stationery, emoticons, animation, sound, etc. features
Can create your own stationery or add someone else's creations
Easy to install and use
Decent spam filter
Easy sorting and storing

Cons

Really REALLY slows the computer down
Spammy downloads included with installation
New version repeatedly wants to change default browser even though
custom installed and declined the browser and toolbar options
Crashes frequently
Beta version is very slow to synchronize
My browser seemed to fail a lot due to incredimail. I don't know what it was doing, but it unfroze once I uninstalled incredimail.
Beta version weirdly downloaded mail from 2007 out of the blue

Summary

I have recommended this product in the past, but have uninstalled the latest version and will wait to see if a less-glitchy, less spammy version becomes available. But I have my doubts as they seem to get worse with each new version, rather than better.

Updated on Jan 14, 2012

* I think a lot of the reviewers simply didn't do a custom install, so they ended up with the (terrible) tool bar and search tool and simply don't know how to change their browser settings or uninstall programs. I had no trouble uninstalling it. I then cleaned up the registry, which I always do after uninstalling something. I've had no problems since.

Something about the download process made me think I'd better deep six it before fully installed

Cons

It started mucking up my computer even before it was fully downloaded and configured.

"Do Not download Viruses"

December 25, 2011  |  By lemersoncorp

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

None, virus infected piece of @#$%$%^^&

Cons

I thought I would give this email client a try. Halfway through setup I changed my mind because I had to agree to installing 3 web browser add ons. Well I installed anyway. Hijacked internet exploret and after deleting and removing files off my computer I had to go to microsoft and have my browser reset......... I just hope after an hour of HELL that all their viruses are gone. New Christmas computer and not happy

Summary

Do Not download

"dont download, removes your email, piece of s*^&"

December 22, 2011  |  By hollantk

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

good if you like crap and want to be stuck, this one surely tops the UGLY list.

Cons

it automatically downloads all email from server but does also REMOVE all email from server. Only way to read your email is with this peice of crap software since they dont allow for export from their own format, so you are stuck with them. And ofcourse, you can byt 3rd party software to convert there email format to standard EML (that you can import in outlook).
crap software, worse I ever came across. they should be taken out of business.
also installs other impossible to remove commercial software, changes your settings etc.

Summary

dont download, use thunderbird.

"Malware at best."

November 17, 2011  |  By ExquisitelySadistic

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

There are no pros,

Cons

when you install it forces you to install mystart as the default home pare and a your search engine. It says it is freem but it has condition that you accept the above.
Once having made the mistake of thinking it wiil be easy to remove yoo will fine that your conputer has been hijacked and the removal is not straight forward. It can be removed but with frustration and a lot if head scratching.

Summary

This a piece of malware. I wonder how Cnet can still carry it. Don't install Incredimail, it is not worth it. Use a reliable email client from some one reputable. There are many good free programs. Save yourself the aggravation of trying to remove mystart. It stays with your computer long after you have deleted incredimail. Bad stuff, shame on you Cnet. You are trusted to filter out the garbage, malware, spyware, etc.

Too bad I cannot give it zero stars.

"HUGE RIP-OFF Continue to upgrade to make you pay!"

November 13, 2011  |  By lwahlfeld

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5055

Pros

nice choice of letters

Cons

They continue to "upgrade" to make you pay for things you've already paid for. Now it also installs all kinds of unwanted programs on your computer AND changes your search to "my start" automatically. BEWARE

Summary

I purchased the "Premium" package many, many years ago, and back then it was good, I had many letters, skins and notifiers to choose from, I also had free "spam folder". Then shortly after I paid, they created a so called "gold" package and they literally took most of the letters and moved them to this new paid package. Then next was the spam folder, now they upgraded again and wanted you to PAY again for their new "Junk Filter Plus". I found a way around it by, creating message rules and creating approved senders lists. Now the latest update 2.0 takes away the "approved lists" and wants you to PAY AGAIN for their so called "protection center" where you can access the approved senders list. So pretty much all I got when I paid a long time ago, is the loss of the ads on my end. That's it. NOT WORTH ANY MONEY IMHO.
