"once purchased they never return emails"

December 31, 2010  |  By trkd

 |  Version: PocoMail 4.5 build 3910

Pros

it emulates outlook pro without the annoying Microsoft BS

Cons

Product support is non-existent-I had to re-install and lost unlock code-they never responded to many emails over a month period.

Summary

I would avoid this product at all costs. They will never help you out. They publish no phone numbers. If you ever need help you are out of luck. Avoid this product!

"Excellent Email Client"

August 29, 2006  |  By RoryPat

 |  Version: PocoMail 4.1.0.3650

Pros

I use Outlook at work and Pocomail at home... and I prefer Pocomail. It's a great full-featured email client. Main things I like:

1. Very fast search

2. Built in Spam filter

3. Less worries about viruses

4. Cool feature that lets me just download message headers (at times when I travel, I check email via my cell phone - at these times, this is an AMAZING plus for Pocomail.

5. I like the fact that mailboxes and all config files are text - it's really easy to move Poco from one machine to another.

Pocomail is a very well designed product - there are lots of little features that make using the product very convenient. Hard to explain or list... they would sound trivial... but when you send/receive a lot of email... the little things make a big difference.

Cons

I find Outlook better at formatting emails - the editor is slightly better.

"Was good (for international users)"

July 23, 2006  |  By gcasanova

 |  Version: PocoMail 4.1.0.3650

Pros

I used to like this email client before it stopped updating and stopped updating the international versions.

It is still good for english speaking users.

It seems to me the company is not working on it anymore but I may be wrong

Cons

International versions have not been updated since last year.

"Probably the best email client there is."

December 01, 2005  |  By erictlee1955

 |  Version: PocoMail 4.0. 3350

Pros

Probably PocoMail's best feature is the ability to filter spam emails on your server, before they ever reach your computer. Another great feature is the automatic backup of mail files. (As someone who has managed to lose several years worth of emails, this is invaluable.) And technical support via their forums is also quick and efficient.

Cons

It costs money. But then again, good software does.

"Doesn't support Unicode"

November 07, 2005  |  By Sin Jeong-hun

 |  Version: PocoMail 4.0. 3350

Pros

I don't know. Nice icons?

Cons

It doesn't support Unicode and even slow than Outlook 2003. An e-mail agent should support unicode these globalized days.
