"Powerful and portable MailVoyager!"

October 26, 2011  |  By brain5677

 |  Version: The Bat Professional Edition 5.0.24

Pros

One of the most powerful email clients out there. Supports POP, IMAP, has HTML and PGP encryption built right in. Not as bloated nor as expensive as other clients with such a long list of features and options. My MailVoyager has been invaluable during my business trips.

Cons

Takes a little time to learn all of the options.

Summary

For professional users who need corporate security, flexibility, and portability without the corporate cost.

"No Nonsense Thoroughbred Performer"

July 25, 2011  |  By HeadHancho

 |  Version: The Bat Professional Edition 5.0.18

Pros

Great for retrieving multiple accounts simultaneously, terrific sorting and filtering capabilities. It seems impervious to cyber-attack. Very reliable.

Cons

It has a steep learning curve and isn't the most capable HTML producer but these short coming are a minor drawback to an otherwise stellar piece of software.

Summary

I'd give it a 5, however, there's always room for improvement and the Bat! team is constantly improving their gear. I recommend it highly. Been using it for over a decade, tried others, they just cannot compete.

"Software I use for 5 years"

October 25, 2010  |  By skyscraper84

 |  Version: The Bat (Professional Edition) 4.2.36.4

Pros

Easy, clear

Cons

Cannot find an option to send messages with built-in html. Maybe someone knows?
Backups - they act some wrong way. Difficult to customize their schedule.

Summary

I like The Bat and I'm used to it. I'd like to try something new, but I can see no alternative at the moment.

"Does the job, well & unobtrusively. Worth the money."

February 20, 2010  |  By AndrĂ© Fabiani

 |  Version: The Bat (Professional Edition) 4.2.23

Pros

Imports address books & messages easily. Defines & schedules backups. Drag & drop folders, common or individual. Multiple accounts (POP3, IMAP4 & MAPI). Select mail on server BEFORE getting it on board. Flexible filtering. Many functions. Reliable..

Cons

Austere GUI (for users of Poco or Thunderbird) or a bit MS-like (for users of Pegasus). Building a complex filtering system while keeping it efficient takes some planning, time, pencil & paper - and logic.

Summary

I've used Eudora until Qualcomm killed it in 2007. Experimented then with Poco Mail, Pegasus, Thunderbird and Opera. I'm using Outlook on a laptop. TheBat! was then (and still is, IMHO) as reliable as Outlook (but safer), as stable as Eudora (but richer), much lighter on resources than Thunderbird or even Poco (and faster) and much easier for dummies (like a servant) than Pegasus.

"Too "nerdy""

February 20, 2010  |  By Flashfox

 |  Version: The Bat (Professional Edition) 3.5

Pros

Powerful, flexible, gets the job done... if you want to spend the time to learn it.

Cons

No built-in HTML viewer (to bad); aimed at more technical ("geekish") users; expensive for what it offers; GUI not as polished as others; slow support.

Summary

I paid for TheBat and gave it a shot for longer than the trial. I went back to Barca from PocoSystems (I unfortunately question that company's future)

"Very good e-mail software"

May 17, 2008  |  By cox1967

 |  Version: The Bat (Professional Edition) 3.99

Pros

Small handy e-mail software.

The best feature is the e-mail folder setting. You can configure every folder for you needs. I use it, to answer with different e-mail addresses and different templates out of different folder.

Cons

EMAP functions should be improved.
