Editors' Review

This vanishingly small program inserts random quotes into your Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, or Eudora e-mail messages. Installing Quotes creates a system tray icon from which you access all the program's features. Hovering your cursor over the icon displays the current quote; you can cycle to the next one by clicking. Right-clicking opens the menu that lets you delete the current quote from the library, add the contents of the clipboard to the library, select a refresh interval, choose a quote category, and edit the appearance of your SIG file. The quotes generally are well chosen, and you can open the libraries as text files and edit them manually. The help file cleared up all our questions. You have to manually remove the SIG file from your e-mail program after you uninstall the freeware or it will continue to show the last quote. Also, we couldn't get it to work with Web-based e-mail accounts. Regardless, with its ease of use and wide selection of sayings, Quotes suits home or business use.

Great Idea, small memory footprint

Cons

Not quite ready for primetime - would like to see instructions for integrating Quotes with Outlook 2007 - all my signatures said:

"Lovely App--Kind of Useless, Though."

February 22, 2008  |  By The Download Idiot

 |  Version: Quotes 2007

Pros

I really enjoy reading the quirky little quotes just by hovering over the taskbar icon or double-clicking the icon to refresh the quote and show a new one. I particularly enjoy the technology-related quotes, as they make me laugh (while I'm a novice whose knowledge doesn't extend beyond...whatever it is that everyone has to know about security nowadays).

Cons

Some of the quotes are a bit too long for viewing via hovering over the taskbar icon, and some are so long that they cannot be viewed in their full glory in the little quote box that pops up when you refresh Quotes. Quotes is a funny little application, but unless you like to put wise words in your email signature or just enjoy reading random little quotes, you should probably think twice before downloading this, as it's not exactly useful in any particular way (with the possible exception of stress relief...?).

"I love this application!"

December 04, 2007  |  By jeannebreault

 |  Version: Quotes 2007

Pros

I love ending my emails with quotes automatically...I used to do it manually! I like that I can add to and delete from quote files. This is a wonderful application.

Cons

It's a little buggy..kind of confusing to set up with Outlook and does little weird, unexplainable things every once in a while. I'm a little tech challenged, so thata could be the main problem!
