Foxmail is a compact, yet very powerful email program with many useful features and a pleasant interface. It supports POP3 accounts as well as Hotmail accounts and offers support for HTML email, multiple accounts, mailbox encryption and more. It also comes with a WYSIWIG tool to compose nice looking HTML emails from templates or scratch. The program also offers filter options, allowing you to act upon incoming mail that meets certain criteria - you can delete messages, forward them, auto-respond to them and more based on keywords appearing in the subject, address, text etc. The Express Send feature enables you to send mail directly to the recipient, using the built in SMTP server, thereby bypassing your ISP. It includes many other features, including a remote mail viewer to manage mail on the server, as well as a small scroll ticker that displays message subjects as they arrive in your inbox.

    Just upgraded from version 7.1 (which seems to have some issues) to 7.2. Very pleased with the new version. I have been using Foxmail for many years and it has never let me down. To get the English menu had to delete the Chinese lgb files. Importing all data from old version worked perfectly. It is recommended to do a clean install instead of upgrading you can import all the mails, filters, labels, signatures, templates etc from the previous version (some copy and paste is required for some items like Labels.
    Version 7.2 with a clean install is using only have as much space as a upgrade. It also works perfectly on a USB stick or portable drive.
    I can not understand the comments from Hilbert. Why do you want to install a mail program if you don't have a e-mail account. There is Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail and many more free mail programs. Sign up with one of them and install your Foxmail, as simple as that. I have been using Eudora, Pegasus, Outlook, Becky, Thunderbird and many more and Foxmail is the best in all aspects.

    There's no off-line installer or obvious way to setup an account off-line, so the program is essentially useless in deployment terms.

    Moreover, FoxMail WON'T EVEN START unless there's an account--no access to the server, the internet down etc. and you're truly stuffed. Nor, seemingly, is there a pre-configurable .ini file or such that a user can edit beforehand.

    The programmer of this email program really is an imbecile, as he's not even thought the basic operational logic through before he's started programing!

    If the programmer ever reads this then I suggest he downloads an ancient copy of Eudora mail, (v is still downloadable) and examine how eudora.ini works! Essentially, there's multiple ways of creating accounts off-line (which one often has to do in corporate environments).

    (For that matter, can anyone tell me how one is expected to set up this program if say the server account has not yet been set up? With email, often client-side setups are done before the server account is created.)

    Classic Catch-22.

    From Majorgeeks website:
    By default the Foxmail interface is in Chinese. To use Foxmail in English just go into the installation directory and delete the Chinese.lgb file. However, for the English version the 'Reply' feature will be affected (the content of the original message will not displayed in the reply - you can use the HTML templates to avoid this)
