Outspring Mail... Imagine an email program that was smart enough to observe and learn how you handle your email. Like offering to reply to certain types of email messages using a response you've previously sent. Or giving you the option to auto-file a message you've read based on how you've filed similar messages in the past. What if you could defer a message from your inbox for a few days or weeks, so that it magically reappears later when you're ready to deal with it? What if this program had an amazing junk mail filter that would leave your inbox devoid of spam? And what if this program was as familiar and easy to use as Apple more...

What's New

Version 1.1.3:
  • Fixed incompatibility between Outspring Mail and Safari 5 that cause messages not to be displayed.
  • Fixed bug that caused some messages to be displayed as blank.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when closing standalone message display window.

Requirements

$95 for an email client that the developer has pulled from their website? Yeah there's a wise investment.

I think not.

I thought this application was dead and buried and am really surprised an update has appeared. I used Outspring up to version 1.1.2 and had quite a few problems en route ending with a few crashes, the final one of which made me decide to drop the application as it had become so unreliable. After checking the website it looked as if the developer was no longer supporting it, which was unfortunate as it had so much promise, end of story. Then 1.1.3 appears out of the blue and the crashes I was experiencing have been fixed. I have started using it again and live in hope and although there have been a few negative responses it still has the makings of a good email client although rather a little expensive. As for the developer, well it remains a bit of a mystery. Perhaps a reply in these columns would be welcome?

Hmm...I contacted the developer about 2/3 months ago and was told that this product was no longer being supported. I wonder what's going on?

This thing looks like it's on SERIOUSLY maintenance mode. There is no mention of it on their web site... they're doing iPhone apps and say "All our products are available exclusively through the iTunes App Store."

Just found this email client, well actually, have been looking at it for sometime. Despite the negative reviews and or comments here, decided to buy it. Guess what?...it has worked just fine for me. I did not get my registration number immediately, and sent an email to the company. I got a pretty quick response, letting me know that they process orders manually and that it would be sent shortly. I got the registration, and have been using it problem free for some time now.

My experience may have been just a fluke, but for me, this is the only client I use in conjunction with "Clearmymail", another service that truly has eliminated all my spam. It costs to buy a subscription, but is absolutely worth every penny. I am happy with this client and my purchase.

Developer, can you please add the option to sort all messages in the inbox by EMAIL ADDRESS, not just by "sender"? I run a business, and deal with hundreds of different customers every day. I need to sort by email address! Can you please add an optional "Email" column? You'll be my hero! I'm sure that countless other people would also appreciate this sorting option. If you add that option, I will buy the program immediately.

Thank you!

Well... it looks interesting.

I have a couple IMAP/SSL accounts, and Outspring took a minute or two to configure (it defaulted to non-SSL, and one of the IMAP accounts is SSL only). But then I got it working and it has a number of ways of tweaking the UI that are different and useful.

It's "brain" was also interesting... a number of my messages it suggested places to file them (3 of 4 were correct), and on a few messages it suggested replies (one was appropriate, the other no so much -- a message where my wife gave a suggested list of people to email a birth announcement to, it suggested an auto-reply of "thanks, heading out for a bike ride I'll be back by 7 can you take the dog out when you get home?" would have gotten me in REALLY hot water. But... I got a good laugh at least. The brain probably needs a little more time to adjust... and to develop some coping mechanisms for the female half of or species :-)

So that said, right now using Mail in combination with MailTags and Mail Act-On can do most of the stuff that Outspring Mail can do, though it's more manual. This does seem interesting, though, and with some further refinement maybe could be worth continuing to montitor.

As for the price... tricky subject. I wouldn't pay $95 for the product as-is. Still, if it really saves productivity down the line that's not so much $, given MailTags + MAO is around $50.

The UI is okay... I really prefer the buttons to Mail's, though the folders ain't got no alibi. It *is* nice to be able to customize which IMAP folders can and cannot be seen, and the preview mode is novel but I'd need to spend more time adjusting it for it to be useful.

I'd give it a 4/5 on promise and maybe a 3/5 for where it is right now in the scope of things... price not being considered.

It has great promise. I'm not commonly an early adopter, but I like what I see of this mail software and in the short time I've been using it the updates have added dimension to it. Give it a try.

I agree that in the current state the product is expensive.
That said, I am still looking for a strong IMAP e-mail client, Thunderbird or Apple Mail don't fit it yet.
PowerMail would be great, but that has no IMAP to speak of.

Outspring is fast, clever (that brain works), and has a nice and ambitious plan ahead. It is my daily mailer right now, and whenever there is a quirk, their response it timely, to the point, and helpful.
I think the product will be great, and I made the switch now to be there.
