    "Great way to archive my mail"

    January 1, 2012  |   By dudemanla

    Version: MailSteward 9.1.1

    Pros

    I like this app. Watch the screencast video tutorials on the site and you will be a pro in no time.

    Cons

    None that I can see

    "Good in concept, tough for me to use"

    November 10, 2010  |   By jnaeve

    Version: MailSteward 9.0.3

    Pros

    One single location to store archives of my mail and provides a single yet highly configurable interface to search my archives based on many different variables.

    Cons

    The database that gets created is 1.4 times the total space your original email files consume, be prepared to chew up some disk space. Make sure you have plenty of RAM and processing power, you'll need it when you maintain the database.

    Summary

    The anomaly may be that I have a lot of email with large attachments that might be making my experience worse than others but this is what I have to deal with. I can't exclude the attachments due to their relevance and context to the email. John Seward is responsive and does provide support to his product.

    Basically, I'm very dissatisfied with the hard drive consumption and the horsepower it consumes. I recently refreshed my MacBook Pro and thinking with all the added power and RAM (8Gb) I figured I wouldn't have an issue. Much to my dismay, it didn't really make any difference. Here are the statistics I saw:

    Previous MBOX Archive Folder statistics
    - 7.86 GB on disk
    - 7,783,683,520 bytes
    - 40,635 items

    Target Directory for MailSteward statistics
    - 13.15 GB on disk
    - 13,151,709,184 bytes
    - 1 item

    "Honest Developer. Exellent Turbo Support. Best App."

    September 20, 2008  |   By Yoruno

    Version: MailSteward 8.0.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The best App. of it`s kind. Best and quickest support i ever see. Absolutely earns every cent you pay for it. Sure some people like all for free & write crap like revenge for 20 $ developer support, after long line of free upgrades. Don`t take care.

    "Still Best-in-Class"

    April 29, 2008  |   By MAC_1984

    Version: MailSteward 8.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have no issue paying for upgrade for such a great application. The reality is that when you have reliable applications that do what they are designed to do very well, then you need to support the developer to keep said application in the fray of things and to continue its betterment. Yes, there are some developers who needlessly charge for updates that are simply not worth it (see some of my posts here at VersionTracker) but MailSteward is not one of them.

    This is a conscientious, and an honest developer who responds to customer concerns, hence, no problem for the upgrade fee for me. I have spent much time corresponding with this developer (regarding minor issues), who has always taken my issues to task and painstakingly worked them out. MailSteward is still best-in-class for a reasonâ??it's that good.

    "Archiving slow"

    March 10, 2008  |   By pieter13

    Version: MailSteward 7.9.8

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It took me at least four days to get all mails from Apple Mail archived; I have around 48.000 valid mails and some 40000 spam/ad mails; Mailsteward archived my 48.000 'real' mails and left the spam mailboxes. Now I have a databse of arounf 8 Gb (with all attachments included) and this does make me feel more safe ... now only how to archive this big database again ... :-)

    Searching is going ok but when you tell it to search from the beginning of your mails (in my case from the year 2000 until now); it takes as much time as Apple Mail and that is a lot of time. I did index and compact the database but not a real difference it seems.

    "AMAZING"

    February 18, 2008  |   By jenjess

    Version: MailSteward 7.9.8

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have tried everything to search through over 62,000 e mails i must keep for my business anf recently found this software. Having it make its own file of all these e mails is great to have, but the search feature simply is the best ever, it finds anything your looking for fast and right on.

    I would recommend this to anyone wanting a good backup of their emails and as a search tool for past e mails too.

    apple should figure out what this developer did to make their search features as good as this.

    the developer must be tied into his search feature because he replies immediately and very, very helpful and nice as well.

    "Excellent..."

    October 22, 2007  |   By PQXYZ33

    Version: MailSteward 7.8.9

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I don't use Apple's Mail.app because it is just too restricting to suit me. Instead, I use GyazMail.app which suits me much better. The downside is that, to use MailSteward, I must export my mail files to UNIX mbox format and then import them into the MailSteward database. It's well worth the effort.

    MailSteward, through all of its many revisions, has worked flawlessly for me. Now, with ~15,000 e-mails in the MailSteward databse, the new indexing feature has made it even faster to report search results (and it was plenty fast before).

    Bottom line: MailSteward is a great program, in my opinion, and well worth the money.

    "Works so subtlely, yet completely reliable..."

    September 2, 2007  |   By levinedr

    Version: MailSteward 7.8.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This app is so useful. I had to get used to the fact that it runs so quietyly in the background that you don't really know that it is working; yet, every time I check to see if yesterday's emails were, in fact, achived... there they are! So rock solid that I've taken to routinely deletely all emails from Mail that are more than 3 months old... in fact, I believe that I could reliably change that to all emails that are more than 3 hours old. All your emails are in a great searchable database including attachments that are searchable is so many ways. And, as per another reviewer, the whole Mail app, if not the whole Mac itself, runs faster and smoother since installing MailSteward. So of the best money I've ever spend on software.
