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.

"Installed OK, didn't get through set up"

January 31, 2011  |  By DaveKimble3

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

It installed OK

Cons

The first run requires you to create a user with Admin privileges, which I did. It then asks you to enter your username, which I did, and it said "that user doesn't exist" and closed with no other options. So I was locked out. Re-running did the same

Summary

This may have been a problem with using non-default folder placings, as others have commented on that. Totally unforgiveable that this doesn't work properly. Uninstall.

"OK for someone that doesn't get mails with graphics"

December 16, 2010  |  By ray6645

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

Easy to install, looks like good help menus

Cons

Will not load graphics in e-mails. Tried changing the program to load graphics, but it didn't help.

Summary

Good for those who need a very rudimentary program

"Easy to set up, but horrible interface"

December 08, 2010  |  By JonnyEFL7

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

It is indeed a working email client...

Cons

The interface is straight out of 1995...does the company who built this product still exist? If so, there's no excuse for not updating the look and feel of the program.

Summary

I uninstalled it and am running Windows Live Mail instead.

"Could not configure it to work"

November 03, 2010  |  By packham33

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

Nice look, appears to have many useful features

Cons

Could not configure to either to send or receive.

Summary

After 4 e-mail exchanges (using a different e-mail program) with a volunteer Pegasus tech, and trying every suggestion he made, it still did not work: error msg said "problem connecting to network" I never got to use the program. I guess I am stuck with my present program, which I don't like, and which made me download Pegasus.

"Real nice program to work with"

October 08, 2010  |  By sharwy

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

easy to use, I love the queued mail because if you change your mail you can delete the email before it is sent. Simple to set up. Works with mail.com servers which is really nice.

Cons

This is hard because I like the program. I would say no email stationary yet.

Summary

Bottom line if you want simple easy to use, no hassles the by all means get this program.

"Good multi-email software"

September 15, 2010  |  By paolobkk

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

can use many email accounts and manage distribution lists

Cons

Totally NOT easy to use for people who come from classic software (outlook, thunderbird...)

Summary

Is a great email software for people who really need to work with email 24/7 and many different accounts and distribution lists.

The interface is not polished at all and confusing if you don't know what to click.
Sometime is not easy to find where are functions and options

"NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART"

September 03, 2010  |  By onceafireman

 |  Version: Pegasus Mail 4.52

Pros

Extremely comprehensive, stable, fast and secure.

Cons

Wore me out with the setup process. I have multiple email addresses and Pegasus will not setup individual mailboxes for each address (you have to setup new identities). No clean way to import address book from Thunderbird. No spell check as you type.

Summary

After Pegasus Mail is all setup - life is good. Like many, I was having difficulty with Thunderbird starting up in a timely manor, if at all. I was fed up to the point of switching email clients. Pegasus Mail starts quickly, which tells me it's a lot easier on system resources. I'll give it a whirl until Thunderbird gets their act together. By that time I'm sure I will be used to Pegasus Mail.
