Editors' review

If you're looking for a client that will handle all your email needs, Pegasus Mail should move to the top of your download list. It won't do back flips or sing the national anthem at ball games, but you won't mind after using this program a few days of acclimination.

The interface design is similar to that of other email clients, with three primary panes: one for your mailbox directory tree, another listing the subject lines of messages, and a third "preview" pane displaying the content of the selected message. Pegasus Mail's toolbar includes a few more buttons than typical email clients, which may cause slight initial confusion for novice users. The help feature is thorough, so any level user should be able to quickly solve any difficulties. Pegasus Mail has robust mail merge and mail management features that power users will immediately appreciate; novices will find an extensive explanation in the help guide. It also is designed to work with a Novell Network LAN, making it a good choice for work as well as home use.

The program performed reliably and impressively in all our tests, including sorting, configuring and using filters. We have no reservations in recommending this remarkable free email client to any and all users.

    "This program does not work on windows7 32 bit (64 too?)"

    June 02, 2014   |   By chatologic

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    free, pretty much that is it

    Cons

    I installed and launched the program. The setup screen prompted to select network, multi-user or single user installation. After clicking the button it disappeared and never came back. Pegasus mail installed to programs the Pegasus Mail program and the HTML Renderer. I could not uninstalled the renderer. I looked for hours via google search to remove all parts of Pegasus to no avail. I basically had to install again, uninstall, delete the Pegasus folders from the C drive manually and then remove registry entries manually. Of course this will leave you with the feeling that parts of it are still installed some where else like system32 etc

    Summary

    I highly recommend you look for another email client if you have any other operating system with Vista or higher.

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    Lot's of features, but not very ergonomic.

    "Very interesting application."

    May 12, 2013   |   By SAGauthier0000

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    Was easily installed and worked right away.
    Easy to used as a basic email system at first.

    Cons

    The most complicated is the more fancy set-up like coloring, identification of folders, etc.
    Windows (7)doesn't see it. Is it because it need to be installed in drive C:? and I didn't found how to make it worked with other application (Picassa, IE, Skipe). It's like the program is not there even if I made associated ext.mapimail with Pegasus mail for Windows.

    Summary

    Anyway, it seems to be a very promising application; I have a lot of time so I will work on it.

    "I find it very difficult to set-up."

    April 23, 2013   |   By alc69

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    I like the lay out

    Cons

    I don't seem to get the answers I need from the help file.
    I could never figure out how to change to HTML and change how to view incoming mail.
    It is to time consuming in my opinion..

    Summary

    I think there are better choices, although I can't find an e-mail client I like since I can't get Outlook Express..

    "Not what it is made out to be."

    April 03, 2013   |   By wood58b

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    Works fine if you can conquer the learning curves of setting it up. For the average user that is not going to happen.

    Cons

    Much too complicated to set up and the only way to remove it is formatting the PC. (The Only Way)

    Summary

    Find something else.....

    "Looked promising"

    May 09, 2012   |   By Tasiturn

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    Appeared to contain many features

    Cons

    A cow to configure to email accounts.
    Only one of 2 parts would uninstall. The "Pegasus HTML Renderer" didn't show up on the Task Master or any file searches but wouldn't uninstall on the grounds that it was running.

    Summary

    If it installed and uninstalled OK it just "might" be good but I'm still looking for a second program as good as Mozilla Thunderbird.

    "worseless and a complete waste of time"

    April 17, 2012   |   By SiNbonfire

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    obviously none

    Cons

    asks for the wrong information.
    it is a chaos of buttons and functions.
    the client doesn't do what it is supposed to do, like getting mail from your server or webclient.

    Summary

    waste of the effort put in it and a waste of time to dl, install and setting it up.

    "The thing that wouldn't leave"

    February 28, 2012   |   By portapal

    Version: Pegasus Mail 4.63

    Pros

    It does lots of things that I may, or may not have needed.

    Cons

    I found it hard to figure out - it refused to send mail. Didn't understand the error message. Wouldn't let me change the stmp address. Uninstalled Pegasus email. Won't let me uninstall the html generator.

    Summary

    It probably doesn't make any difference if the html generator remains in the computer, but I don't like it. Pegagus is running I'm told - but Pegasus had been uninstalled. This is probably a good email client, but too high-blown for me. It didn't want to send my mail, so I kissed it goodbye.
