Note: MailForge is no longer being actively developed.

MailForge was built from the ground up for OS X and designed to be a power user's email client, providing users with a host of features not commonly found in other email programs, such as the ability to edit every facet of received emails, scheduled sending of email, tabbed or multi-window interface, HTML vs text options, menu navigation of mailboxes, etc.

Harnessing the power of SQLite, MailForge also offers significant performance advantages, ranging from the ability to have a virtually unlimited number of emails in a single more...

Years and years and years of promises and it still doesn't work.

As a Eudora user since the demise of Apple's original mail client, I was hopeful that Mailforge would fulfill its promise as a full fledged, OSX friendly replacement for Eudora. I paid back in 2010 and have been utterly disappointed with each release I tried. Specifically as others have noted, MF fails on import despite having compacted the Eudora mailboxes. I remain minimally optimistic and hopeful that MF will live up to its hype as a modern Eudora. In the meanwhile I'm still in Eudora and Snow Leopard.

STILL not ready for prime time. 3.2.2.0 mysteriously exits under very minor stresses.

I wouldn't waste one second with this application. Even if you can get it work -- which is highly unlikely -- it's not very good.

I Still can't get it to work with my iCloud/MobileMe account. Shame, I really like the Eudora-like layout, but it simply doesn't work.

Still cannot get it to work with iCloud mail. I've tried all kinds or variations to the settings, but nothing. Also annoying is the inability to cancel a process other than quitting and restarting, so it just sits there showing 'Checking iCloud...'. It really needs a timeout.

Additional bug:

I restarted the importing process from scratch (I want to get a screen shot of the final error message). I also selected the "File > Export selected mailbox" menu item. A window opened and the program froze (I had to Force-quit it and restart it).

I add this as a reply to my own post, so I don't keep piling up low ratings.

The error message was: "An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down".

The error occurred at a different place in the mailbox import procedure (in fact, early in the process, after about 40 minutes), and in a mailbox that had been imported correctly the first time. So, it's probably not caused by something in a specific e-mail.

Still not ready for prime time. I hope to increase the rating very shortly. I need this program.

I downloaded 3.0 and tried it on an old MBP 10.6.8 with a Eudora folder only a few months out of date. About 1GB of e-mails, 5GB of attachments, very good test for my "true" e-mail folder.

The program "had to quit" after about 12 hours of importing e-mails. Note: mailboxes were not compacted, and the "extended" import was used since many are in a foreign language, so admittedly, not ideal conditions. Long conversion time not a big deal, progress bars show what is going on.

Key problems so far:
1 - No way to gracefully stop importing. There is no "stop" button (and obviously no "restart" button following a stop). It's an "all or nothing" proposition.

2 - No way to import selected mailboxes, or for MailForge to recognize that some mailboxes have already been imported, are current, and don't need to be re-imported.

3 - No crash report. Note that the program quit, did not crash, so there was no system crash report from OS X. The error dialog box announcing that "MailForge had to quit" referred to some object that could not be found. The log file "DebugLog.txt" did not contain any useful information (the last line was the subject of the last e-mail imported).

Version 3 is still unreliable. It does not remember settings, can't sort the way you want it and shows strange code characters in the body text.
It isn't worth your $19.95.

All users who payed for this before 2012 have to pay $9,95 for an upgrade license. After 4 years of putting up with crappy beta versions, many lies from the developer about progress and release dates, this is the developers way of saying thank you for being patience and loyal.
