Are you the type of user who just goes with whatever email client comes with your operating system? If you are, you're missing out on a whole world of benefits offered by programs that make working with email more enjoyable, productive, and efficient. Today's discount software promotion for Windows does just that - it's called The Bat!

The Bat! is an email client that transforms your email experience, with useful features that make email simple and convenient. First of all, The Bat! protects your sensitive information by supporting a wide array of authentication protocols and encryption methods, ensuring that your company's secrets remain secret and that your competitive advantage is secure. By the same token, The Bat! also features robust anti-virus defense, leveraging the power of its own integrated HTML viewer to defeat malicious code that can be served via web page content.

Do you want to be more efficient? Well, think about how much time you spend sorting email - now think about reclaiming all of that time by just setting up a few rules in The Bat! Just set sorting rules, and your incoming, outgoing, and read email will automatically be directed to the appropriate folder. You also get the benefit of custom templates, auto-reponse, confirmations, and the ability to run external programs. Take it to the next level with custom message templates that trigger in response to unique events. Quick templates cut down on the amount of typing you need to do, by automatically filling in frequently used text snippets. The Bat! even features integrated backup and restore for each mailbox that you manage.

Thanks to its ability to import messages from a huge roster of email clients, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Pegasus Mail, Eudora, and Netscape, there's no reason not to jump on The Bat! as your primary email client today!

CL Can I run this program concurrently with MailBird Pro?

Ritlabs, SRL @CL, yes, you run The Bat! alongside any other email program. By default the POP3 accounts in The Bat! do not delete the downloaded messages off the mail server, so you can retrieve them with other emailers as well. You can also use IMAP4 if supported by the server and if you prefer to manage email that way.

Metta Zetty (1) Are your English help files current now?
(2) Is there any way to edit the subject line of received messages?
(3) Do we have the option of adding notes to received messages?
(4) Is there a maximum limit on the number of email messages that can be stored or the number of folders used?
(5) Is there a limit to the number of levels of nested sub-folders?
(6) If I already have an older version of TheBat installed, does it need to be uninstalled before setting up a free trial of the current version? Or will the free trial overwrite the current version I have installed?

John User I purchased and used The Bat Home Edition for several years through a deal like this. I thought it was very good and definitely an improvement over the free Thunderbird I had used for years before The Bat.

However, taking advantage of another BDJ offer here, I purchased Mailbird Pro which has replaced The Bat for me now.

Honestly, both are very good email clients, but I just think Mailbird's design is easier to use for me.

Ritlabs, SRL @Praveen, yes, you can do that via backup/restore in both directions. Simply create a backup file on one computer and restore it on the other. The data and settings will be synchronized.

Metta Zetty I purchased TheBat Home Edition this evening, and it locked up (with an "Access Violation" error message) within hours of installing and beginning testing.

Is there any satisfaction/refund guarantee if problems like this can't be resolved in a timely manner?

Ritlabs, SRL @Metta Zetty, here are the replies to your questions:

(1) Yes, the help topics on the web-site are up-to-date: https://www.ritlabs.com/e...t/help.php Press F1 anywhere in The Bat! to get the relevant help topics.
(2) There is no option to allow you doing that, however you can drag a message into a folder in Windows Explorer, open it with a text editor, alter the subject and drag it back into The Bat!
(3) Yes, simply add to the message list the column "Memo" and add notes either by clicking in that column of a message or via the menu "Message\Memo Editor".
(4) There are no such limits in The Bat!
(5) No limit.
(6) Simply install the newer version over the existing one. The installer will automatically overwrite the program's files while the user data files will be left untouched.
