Fixed some bugs (which should always get fixed in the current version anyway) and added a couple of checkboxes and cosmetic improvements… that's it for a $20 upgrade? Seriously?

Can this application download emails and their attachments directly from Yahoo and Gmail server, or does it import it through Apple Mail?

Love this program, HOWEVER, the last update seems to have broken something on the Search screen.

Hoping the developer can figure this out and fix it soon.

I bought this 5 years ago and have found it indispensable. For me it works perfectly and, with the latest versions, is really fast, even on my old MacBook Pro of the same vintage!

I use both MailSteward and MailSteward Pro on two different computers, one personal and the other professional respectively.

MailSteward is reliable and easy to use. MailSteward Pro is much faster thanks to the SQL database and absolutely worth the extra expense for archiving business email.

By archiving my mail out of Apple Mail, it makes Apple mail more responsive and stable while never losing the ability to "quick find" historic messages and associated attachments.

Whenever I need support, I'm convinced that John never sleeps because my requests for support and his responses seem more like "instant messaging" than email. This guy is on top of his game!

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Can you please advise of the email address for support? Its not exactly straightforward trying to find it within the app. Thanks.

Mail Steward is fast, reliable, and powerful. The latest version adds new features, boosts reliability, and is even more configurable.

And frankly, a twenty dollar upgrade is cheap considering the value of the developer's dedication and improvements.

If email is important to you personally or professionally -- Mail Steward is as good as it gets.

I’ve only been archiving email since 2006 (wish I’d done it before), since when I’ve been using Apple Mail, then Entourage, then Thunderbird, then Postbox, then Gyazmail and then back to Apple Mail. I’ve always used Mailsteward to archive email from those apps into separate archives, but it was only ‘till today that I thought I’d try merging all of these Mailsteward databases into one. Although Mailsteward has always been nothing but 100% stable for me, I thought that merging these large databases may be a ram hogging time consuming exercise which would result in some sort of “Error”, hence why I’d not tried that up to now. Instead, I'm astonished at how simple and quick this turned out to be. Rather than having one’s email archived by each separate internal email app (and slowing it down in the process), it’s obviously so much better having all email stored externally offline in one central repositry with the inbox, sent, draft, and even junk mailboxes maintained as they were in the mail app you were using - not only with my own separate .mac, Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail/Live accounts, but with the wifes separate accounts as well. And in terms of searching for and finding a particular email, Mailsteward is right up there with the likes of File Buddy or Find Any File in terms of how comprehensive and speedy it is. Honestly, I have no connection whatsoever with the developer, but this really is an excellent Mac software and I can’t recommend it enough.

Is there a cross-plaform version of this app? Looking for something with a built-on viewer/search that can be easily transitioned to Win if necessary.

I forgot to add the stars to my review, below. I'd give Mail Steward and John the developer more than 5 if it were possible. Great program and very responsive and committed developer!
