It is hard to find a better e-mail client out there.
Images in e-mails? LOL. Whatever anyone would need that for. HTML mails?
No, The Bat! is not made for newbies. Luckily.
Reviewing 5.0.30 (Jan 3, 2012)
Does it display images in emails yet?

I'm astonished that some people actually pay for this! It looks like the e-mail equivalent of the mechanical typewriter.

The Bat has a lot of options, choices and handles HTML (the primary method desired) in a weird way. It is justified by the authors as security but IMHO is awkward. This should be an option selection by the user, not forced by the developer. Not all of us visit sites where HTML is full of threats, I have Virus software that protects my email and lets me make a decision on what I want to receive, If it were not for the awkward use of HTML, this might be a good choice, I have checked each release hoping that HTML handling will join the realm of practicality but it never does and guess it never will, I am sure there are those who will disagree with me and is their right to do so but this program is just not for the user who is looking for an easy to use mailer, If you like having to "fiddle" with each email just to read it, then this program is for you! There are many good email clients out there that do as good or better than this and most are free, Try it and you be the judge,
