This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Email piles up over the years and slows down your email software. What to do with it?
This program gives you more than a backup. When you use ThinkArch to archive your messages to DevonThink Pro you can quickly search and read old messages.
You can choose between export your messages or archiving them (export and delete). It is necessary to have DevonThink Pro since DevonThink Personal does not support applescript, which ThinkArch uses to archive/export your messages. You can select which DTP database you want the messages sent to.
You can set date filters: file everything after a certain date and/or before another date. There is also a setting 'relative to current date, like 'more than one year old'.
You can choose which folders to export/archive, and (through the menu) select or deselect all folders and save the current set of folders. It is also possible to schedule regular archive operations but I have not used this option yet.
I've found that this new version is quite fast and it handles the different filter settings well (choosing Entourage folders and a date range). It is a very useful program.
