Becky! Internet Mail is a multi-featured E-mail client specialized for Windows and the Internet. You will find many features which are expected for an Internet E-mail software, and some of them would be beyond your expectations.

Agree that Becky is a good email program. Email clients are "to the eye of the beholder" in value. Each to his own as most clients work well. The Bat is good but no Calendar, Outlook lost my email, Thunderbird updates kill installed addons, etc, etc. I have found two good ones but they are not free...Postbox is what Thunderbird should be and EMclient. Outlook replacement..I settled on EmClient as it has been solid with no crashes,lost mail. It is under active improvements but updates slow in coming.
What works for you is a good choice...

It's really disappointing that many reviewers on this site consider "free" software the litmus test of "quality" and low rank paid software. In some cases free is better: Open source "WinSCP" is the equal or better of its paid FTP client counterparts. Freeware "MyPhoneExplorer" has features that even paid Android apps don't have. But "Registry Workshop," with its fast search and replace and backup functions, is unquestionably better than the free OEM Windows registry editor. Likewise, Becky Email, with the bullet proof way it archives attachments, searches text and uses memory, is as good as free alternatives like Thunderbird and even ahead of paid email clients such as Outlook in terms of reliability and versatility.

Sorry, not paying for something thats already free in other software.

This client continues to be my favoured mail client on Windows. I only wish there was as good a client on Linux. Light as a feather - after running for hours it's using just over 15MB of RAM. Thunderbird is up to 91MB after less than five minutes. Yesterday I wanted to set up an automatic reply filter. A two-minute job with Becky. Thunderbird? Forget it. I'm sure there's a way if you just install the right plugin. If you can find it. And if you trust third-party developers embedded in your mail software. No doubt the TB fanboys will protest; like the Comodo and Ubuntu fanboys they get very uptight when you criticise their toys.
Never mind. Carry on using TB. I hear you can even download colourful themes for it!
Leave Becky to those who understand its elegance and hidden treasures.
Worth every last euro I spent on it, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
