"Used to be awesome, but with 2.5 there is a problem"

December 18, 2012  |  By eelydnic

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

Very easy to use. Like the ability to add backgrounds, pictures, etc.

Cons

Major con: With the latest 2.5 version, Incredimail installs Incredibar without user consent. This is NOT the "MyStart" junk that you are given the option to not install. Incredibar (aka: IB updater) hi-jacks your new tab/search in Chrome. It's also tricky to get rid of :( Even after uninstalling it in Programs, it is still there. I have stumbled on the fix after a good amount of searching though (See below in summary)

Summary

I have been using Incredimail for many years. I will continue to use it, but the latest version is a true disappointment. Really don't like them sneaking in something that hijacks my new tab page! To remove it...you need to go into Chrome tools, then extensions. Delete IB updater and DELETE "NEW TAB IN CHROME" (that's the one that stumped me for awhile! Without that step, it won't go away.
I truly hope that Incredimail actually reads these reviews and will take steps to remove this "secret" junk from their software. Their reputation (which used to be 5 stars) has nosedived for me.

btw...I only use the free version ;)

"STINKS,i need four more characters,stinks only has six"

August 23, 2013  |  By vista user

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

i have a very nice uninstall button

Cons

the only let you type 1000 characters... i would need 100,000 characters for a complete list... why is there no zero star rating?... a one star in a little much

Summary

NEVER buy a program without reading the reviews, BIG mistake. cannot go into all the bad stuff but one thing that is common for all the users is that their support is #$^^^&*((... FUN.
Do not install this thing... outloook or win8's Windows Mail are logical choices.

"If you do not store email you are ok"

August 05, 2013  |  By debiannj

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

You can put graphics on the email easily
you can make a letter with your graphics with an additional program
it will bring in multiple email addresses

Cons

Doesn't have the capability to make profiles so you have to use rudimentary filters
you can't filter within a filter or have the filters check for OR commands
if you want to back up your email, good luck.
poor/non existent tech support

Summary

I have been using this program for many years, mostly because I can't get the emails I need (license emails, attachments) to export. The backup will only go to another Incredimail program, not outlook or outlook express IF you can get it to back up. I can't get the backup inside the program to work, and had to buy a backup program from them. (I had a premium paid program, and they have a new PLUS program that includes the backup program.) I have tried to use the backup program with little luck. I have had several technical issues like folders disappearing, emails not letting me paste into them randomly, backup issues, and tech support has never been able to help me. They do respond, but most of the responses had nothing to do with the issue I was having. If you are the sort of person who reads email and then deletes it, plays around with graphics and likes to add graphics to your emails, and don't store many of your received emails and don't need technical support, then you will be fine. If you use your email for work purposes and need to archive your email, you may want to reconsider.

"New Incredimail?"

May 15, 2013  |  By 1castle

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

Couldn't find a one.

Cons

They failed to make some explainations on what, where, who & when you can download.

Summary

I love Incredimail. But my CPU is 8 yrs old and I have Win XP Pro. Apparently, when you reach this age you can't download the new version. I got an email, after weeks of frustration, from Incredimail stating my OS & Win XP can only accepted version 2.5. So if you are trying to install the NEW Version 6 and it won't install, give it up. You are stuck with the edition you got. No Upgrade!

"WARNING!!! Incredimail not to be trusted!!"

May 13, 2013  |  By Neutralizing

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

O.k. for free users and the inexperienced for the free version

Cons

Perion / Incredimail is not to be trusted! Let me explain why (I hate to do this, but feel the public has to know their standards)

I purchased Incredimail on Thursday, April 18, 2013 6:18 PM. to trial the pro version, as that's what they suggested, it did not perform as I wanted, I disliked some of the functions and the customer support is extremely slow. I bought it and found I did not like it, so requested a refund 1 or 2 days after the purchase. A week after the purchase I received a reply to my pre-sales question, 4 days after that I got a reply to my question regarding an issue I was having the day after I bought it.

I followed their, "The Risk-Free Trial Period for all IncrediMail products is 30 days." and requested a refund and got no refund and no reply to my email. so sent another on Thursday, May 02, 2013 6:20 PM and again got no reply or refund, and again on Wednesday, May 08, 2013 9:26 AM and once again no refund or reply to my email!

Summary

Be careful!! I have no idea even if they are going to charge me for the next year as its a yearly subscription they have. DO NOT BUY A SUBSCRIPTION IT! THEIR VIP SUPPORT IS NONE EXISTENT!

"Installed self when my mom rec'd email, took over gmail"

May 02, 2013  |  By John Moody

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

It has good graphics.

Cons

My parents clicked animated emoticon in an email they received, and did not realize that they were committing to install Incredimail.

It found their gmail password and user name from somewhere in their computer, and it went onto the pop server and popped out all their mail without their permission.

I believe that I will be able to recover their mail, it should be in gmail in the "all mail" section, from what I gather.

The version they were tricked into installs IB Updater in Google Chrome which one can only delete if they are clever enough to delete the "new tab" extension.

It installs Incredibar, and Web Assistant. Perhaps the CNET version does not do that.

People who RECEIVE your emails -- even if you have a clean version of incredimail, will be tricked into downloading adware, and into losing their email unless they continue to use incredimail.

Summary

Even if this version does not have adware your recipients will be tricked into losing their email and installing adware.

"Down the rabbit hole."

March 14, 2013  |  By Skinni39

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

None anymore

Cons

List too long to count.

Summary

I have owned incredimail since it's inception probably 18 years I absolutely loved this program. I make Incredimail stationary and I made skins for the XE Version. It was so very different. I eventually had to change to IM2 but the 1st few versions were okay.
NOW???? OMG Incredimail2 when it 1st came out was complicated enough now with every new release comes more changes. I don't even recognize the program now. Recently my desktop went to the shop for repair. I was using an older version of IM2, I used my son's laptop as a replacement in the meantime and installed the most recent version of IM2. What was I using. There were duplicate folders and then they add syncing which then prevented you from doing anything else. They will not bounce emails. There is no outbox with a send button. I got my machine back from the shop and put an original XE version back on. It's just as I remember it and I will not change again. If I ever have to I will be uninstalling.

"Piece of crap!"

March 11, 2013  |  By tiborio

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

Ptos? Are you kidding me?!

Cons

You can not customize the installer, so it installs things that you don't want... When I tried to uninstall, the uninstaller failed so I had to use Revo Uninstaller and perform a force uninstall...

Summary

This program sucks, it's a peace of crap! Forget IncrediMail, not worthy of attention. Bye!

"Avoid 2.5 But 2.0 is still great"

February 21, 2013  |  By doxielvr

 |  Version: IncrediMail 6.29 Build 5188

Pros

I purchased the lifetime membership years ago along with the Gold package and all though I am not sure why I cannot download anything new I am still able to get tech support very fast.

Cons

I had to redo my computer and when I downloaded incredimail I didn't realize the headache 2.5 would be. Wouldn't work, wouldn't check my e-mail nothing. But......

Summary

I contacted tech support and they gave me a link (also found on their user forum) to remove all traces of incredimail and I was able to download 2.0. Yet it wouldn't reinstall until I again went to the forum and saw that I had to delete the temp files. 2.0 installed wonderfully and now I am back in business! So happy. I love incredimail and it is so user friendly. I tried Outlook 2007 and think I need ot go to college to use it.
