I too was taken in by Incredimail early on. When it first started it was great. Good Junk Filter included! I went ahead and purchased Incredimail Premium and my wife and I loved it. Then they came out with Incredimail 2 and Junk Filter Plus! At first the junk filter was included (and yes it was fairly lame as far as doing its job) and then they wanted $39.95 per year! You have got to be kidding me! For a few years I complained and Ofer Adler (Yes we were on a first name basis) would send me a new license key, but then I did not hear from him for a while. I finally dropped Incredimail 2 and switched to Windows LIve Mail, which isn't bad. Currently I am checking out eM Client and so far I like it. I will never go back to Incredimail the way it is now. It is a piece of crap now.

Straight to the point

I have been using IM for more than 8 years. I am a paying member (so I have lifetime priveledges, except for the spam filter).

ONCE UPON A TIME THE PROGRAM WAS GOOD. That is why I had tested it and then payed for my membership.

In the meantime it has become something else entirely.

The SPAM FILTER function (which you have to pay for) is USELESS. It lets so many things through, does not learn and is a great waste of money. My free Yahoo account is far, far superior.

As a lifetime payed member there should be no advertisement on the outgoing emails. SURPRISE - suddenly they have appeared again! I also receive adverts for their new products - - constantly jumping up at me when I open the program.... "please buy me too!!!" WHAT? This is inexcuseable.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT - what is this??? This has deteriorated to nothing more than an automatic message transmitting service. No one answers my questions any more - no one cares!!! After all, I have already paid, right? Inexcuseable.

SUMMARY: Do NOT buy any Incredimail services. The free stuff is for sure still good (and enticing), but they are currently trying to get you hooked.... and doing a good job..... but when you are an addict, they will destroy your services and disappoint you , leaving you frustrated, alone, and wondering just what happened.

Okay, let me throw in my 2 cents worth. First, I have no impressive credentials as a computer expert. I use a computer mostly for business and to keep in touch with friends and such. So I guess I'm just an average user. I bought a new laptop (Toshiba) and began downloading some programs and ran across Incredimail. Thought I would download it and take a look. I did and thought it was a little too juvenile but that my 8 year old might like it to send to his friends. However, the computer at that point began having hiccups. Well, worse really because it began running so slow and was sometimes completely unresponsive. So I had to write down all the programs installed, all the favorites I had garnered....you know all the stuff you do when you are going to take it back to the original configuration. I dumped it all and started fresh and now I have a computer that works again. I can't say for sure it was Incredimail but that is the only thing I can put my finger on so I won't be using it again and if anybody asks me I will tell them to stay away. That's all I have.

Incredimail ripped me off. Bought a lifetime license for Incredimail XE Premium and letter creater. Now neither are any good. Have to pay to upgrade to 2.0 which won't install on my computer. Anyone interested in a class action lawsuit [email protected] Would have rated lower if I could. Customer support sucks

I've had Incredimail ever since they first came out back in the 90s. I paid around $58 for the bundle package with IM-PREMIUM and LETTER CREATOR. I upgraded my computers to Windows 7 and now imail tells me my (Paid for) LIFETIME license is not valid! I dropped them and went to Windows Live Mail, which works great but, I have accumulated so much information in imail, it's near impossible to retain it all and move it to another program. As I have saved the data to a stick, I can access it and recover some of the mailings one at a time, but it will take forever. So I'm trying to get my licenses back and recognized by the program. Another thing is the I mail "2" doesn't recognize some older saved emails from earlier programs and displays them in unreadable garbage. PJ

After reading some of the comments I'm a bit confused.. slows down the computer? Takes ages to get mail in? I have been using IM for the last 9 years and I'm still very happy with it, the only thing is that you need to do is stay away from each update they give.. if you have a build that works.. STAY WITH IT! In the last 9 years I only updated when I really needed too (really outdated build) and never ran into problems.. so no I don't have IM2 and won't as long as I keep reading there are problems with it.. I'm not bold, not a real computergeek so I'm careful... all my contacts are saved on a flashdrive as is the stationary.. I have several people that have 2 or more addresses I just put a 1, 2 or 3 after there name and they all save so wonder why the fuss is about on that too.. the only minus I have is that each time they have a new build that window to update jumps up altough I have the option "check for updates" unchecked

It ought to be possible to rate something like Incredimail 2 lower than 1.
I bought and used Incredimail for some years, as it gradually added more and more irrelevant options and kids' stuff. It seemed easy to use.
Gradually, I had more and more problems.
Then, one day, the pop-up offer was to migrate from Premium to Incredimail 2.
People, the great variation of scores given to this program probably reflect the experiences of those on basic Incredimail and those trying to live with 2. 2 is a disaster. It reflects the changes in the company's attitude, in that it is selling all day. I suppose we all feel as disgusted as each other by the recent way they structured things to prevent being asked for support/help.
I think I have probably experienced at least all the problems mentioned in the reviews, culminating in a newish laptop freezing and then emptying itself of files.
For some time, I have been learning how to use Pocomail - a grown-up mail client.
Goodbye Incredimail and, to anyone thinking of buying it... do yourself a favour. Don't.

I started using Incredimail 6 years ago and at that time I really enjoyed it because of all the cute things you could do.ex.Beauty and the Beast dancing to the song, roses opening and closing to the tune of Phantom of the Opera ect. A few years ago I downloaded incredimail 2...bad mistake. Multiples of each email, like 10 -20 each started bombarded my mail box. the more I tried to get ride of them the more they incresed. Not being more pro-active I now have 128,369 emails in my box. It takes 30 min. to download anything on line. I can't just trash it all because I have e-bills, receipt etc. I am afraid I will lose them. I can not find a telephone number or
email address to get information from them. The "chat" on line for help is a joke.If I ever get this mess straightened out I will never touch Incredimail again. If anyone has a contact # or address Please, Please post it for me. I'm an old woman and I am afraid I my die before this mess gets cleared up!!!

It takes forever to open or send an email, and it constantly freezes up so I can't even see what I'm typing. I can type a whole sentence and nothing shows up for five minutes. The only reason I kept it for so long is that it would not allow me to export my mail to Outlook Express so I could uninstall it. I just bought a new computer, and I have sent all of my email to a new gmail account so I could uninstall this s*** from Hell just to make sure that it doesn't somehow get into the new computer by accident. I WILLl NEVER USE THIS CRAP AGAIN!!!!

I have been using Incredimail XE for many years and have always had good service from it. If I had a problem there was an e-mail address I could write to and would relatively quickly get a very helpful response. I recently upgraded to Incredimail 2 and found how the company has changed. I lost a great deal of data, am unable to contact the company, the automated chat is useless and they want me to pay to get help. It seems that this company has gotten too big for it's britches. I am trying a back door approach to reaching them. If that doesn't work I'm dropping them like a rock and looking elsewhere. It's a shame that a company that I found to be so good did a complete 180.

I have just spent all night doing a clean install of XP and software on my mothers PC as it was running terribly. When I had finnished it ran like a dream. I then pleaded with her not to re-install IncrediMail, but she did it anyway. The PC is now back to it's useless self. IncrediMail is a terrible program. Anyone that insists on using it deserves the problems it causes. Unfortunately I can't rate IncrediMail any lower than 1 >:-(

Trust me... You don't want to dealt with this piece of garbage.
Once you fall in their trap you are done.
They have crippled IM to the point that it lack supports for IMAP Sync, this was done in order to force user into keeping IncrediMail, the simply kidnap your mail.

I recently purchased an iMac. When they transferred all of my information from my old PC to my new Mac NONE of the IncrediMail information transferred. I lost all of my email addresses as they were in an IncrediMail file. What a hassle trying to retrieve 10 years of addresses. NOT COMPATIBLE WITH AN iMac. Also, I received an email after this telling me that they had renewed my Junk Filter Plus. They did this without any pre authorization and charged my bank account. I have written numerous emails telling them not to renew this feature. I started writing writing 4 days before the amount was deducted from my bank account. Of course they did it anyway now I have to go through the hassle of going to my bank and filling out papers to have this charge removed. They are VERY DIFFICULT to deal with. Only automated responses and then no follow up. If you want to eliminate future stress in your life DUMP INCREDIMAIL or just never sign up.

I had to rate this program as 1 (Low) . I had this program installed for years, even had licenses for Letter Creator and Gold Galleries that i got as a gift. But I had to uninstall the whole program from my PC, it was a terrible resource hog, plus it was a kind of spyware; as i logged it's activities, it sent all kind of odd information to some sub-addresses of incredimail.com, plus it brought annoying unwanted popups to the taskbar (ads). It was not even a bit funny (that it supposed to be, i guess) , it was more naiive.

Functionally, the most advanced email programs were not able to read correctly the graphics composed with IncrediMail ; it simply was not compatible. The graphics in the email written with Incredimail were mostly readable only with another Incredimail client.

I have dumped Incredimail for good, and will never use that program, or any other product of this company any more. As i heard where the program is from, i was even more decided!

I piss on this program!
I have used incredimail 2.0 for 2.5 months and I must say, when you just have a new computer and you find him to fast, install Incredimail 2.0 and your computer become Incredi slow!
If you are awaiting on an e-mail, and you want him open right away? Forget it, go take coffee first, after 5 minutes or so is your message on the screen.
It is so horrible Sloooooooow!
Also very nice is that, without apparent cause, suddenly your keys have differed signs assigned.
Your ask mark is suddenly lost, also your @ sign. And many other sign are gone.
When I (incredimail) again had removed from my PC, this problem was solved.
This was necessary, because suddenly after cleaning up my hard drive wanted not start the program.
I now have Windows Live Mail and it works properly.

What else is that I annoy me?

The following: very fine: you can not e-mail messages outside Incredimail save to a file format that Windows can access without Incredimail.
You can not import e-mail address book from competing providers in Incredimail.
You can not import account data from another email program to Incredimail.
You cannot store one contact of 1 person under 2 different email addresses.
You must then create a whole new contact.

- Another great misery: from Incredimail, when you have opened the program, and you want after a while your server to check for new e-mail: you can not!
- There is no button: new mail.
- Spell checker: each time you have to reset to the language of your message.
The spellchecker has no learning capability, and does not automatically corrects text.
The customer service is deaf to criticism.

I irritated so much that I come up with the idea to change the name in Incredidebielmail that's Dutch, and this is freely translated: Incredi madcap mail.

A good email program if you're not older than 5 years, and love to the top right where are all stupid advertisements to be read.
Including the so called even better, read more, irritating version, Incredimail 20.XL
When you pay for this program.
I am quite willing to pay for software that offers value. But I dis-advise strongly.
