    "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.

    "Worst Email Client EVER"

    July 12, 2011   |   By katsan32

    I usually received emails, and you can customize the templates.

    Cons

    I didn't always receive emails, nor did the other people in my company.

    Summary

    "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)

    "My choice"

    August 20, 2008   |   By tirami

    Version: The Bat (Professional Edition) 3.99

    Pros

    Excellent usability, nice features, there're almost no problems. What else do you need? And it's really fast one if you compare it with outlook

    Cons

    Don't know why, sometimes it fails so i've to restart it.

    "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.

    "The best e-mail program ever"

    April 17, 2008   |   By Delmar77

    Version: The Bat (Professional Edition) 3.99

    Pros

    This is the best e-mail program I have ever tested. It is very flexible and allows me to do what I want. It should be nominated for a software Oscar, if one exists. Way, way better than other e-mail programs.
