MailSteward for Mac makes archiving and managing large amounts of e-mail quick and painless. The free version of this application is full featured, but archives a maximum of 15,000 e-mails. To archive more, you need to purchase either MailSteward or MailSteward Pro.

MailSteward for Mac opens to a somewhat overwhelming interface, but this is to be expected as the program provides you with numerous options to easily create databases and manage thousands of e-mails. You are able to print, export, browse, archive, and search your e-mail database, to name a few options. This application also offers many features for saving, importing, exporting, and tagging your vital e-mail data. Selecting "archive e-mails" and inputting the appropriate date range starts the archiving process. Archiving worked out well for us as our e-mails could be grouped according to their i.d., attachments, date, time, recipient, sender, subject, and mailbox information. We were also able to easily select individual e-mails or groups of e-mails to save or export. The application offers several exporting options for database files including MailSteward, SQL, and mbox files.

Overall, MailSteward for Mac performed well, quickly scanning for and archiving selected e-mails and attachments. That's all you need to hear if you have a large volume of e-mails that need to be archived for easy retrieval at a later time. However, if you have more than 15,000 e-mails to handle, you'll definitely need to upgrade to MailSteward Pro.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MailSteward for Mac 10.1.
