The installer doesn't work. It starts by saying that it is preparing the 4jWizard and then quits. No Wizard is launched.

Very useful app but like someone already said below, it is something you only use once in a blue moon. I've purchased licenses for versions 9-11 but the lack of a cheaper upgrade path as well as the fact that it IS a one trick pony makes it very unlikely that I'll buy a license for version 12

Does what it says and does it well. One minor quibble is that it costs to update annually ... which make sit more expensive than it probably should be. That said, you don't need to convert your e-mail annually (once in a blue moon is more like it) so you'r eprobably only looking at paying for an update every few years or so

Doesn't convert from Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac (the latest version of Office). Looks fantastic otherwise.

I purchased this application to convert a windows outlook .pst file into mac mail format. I received my license key within 30 seconds of paying for it and downloaded the full version. After downloading, it took less than one minute for this software to process and convert 500+ e-mails (attachments included) ... done!

I definitely recommend this application! ;-)

this is the conversion tool i have ever seen as simple, easly and fast. nothing can be compared to this one. my 5.51 GB outlook pst file has been converted into mail.app format in 20 mins only where other tools did it in hours !
this deserves more than 5 stars.

The software is great and the owner responsive to questions. There's no help file that I can see, and some things need to be explained. But this is a workhorse of a product. Worth every penny once you figure out how to use it effectively. There is nothing else like it on the market.

The guy who complained bitterly about being sent a demo link missed the real link in his purchase email. That is supplied by the firm that handles the money for weirdkid.com.

Avoid like the plague both this product and the unpleasant fellow who sells it - . Yesterday I ordered and paid for the FULL WORKING VERSION. My money was very speedily and efficiently accepted and I got an e-mail directing me in detail precisely from where to download the software,how to install it, and containingg a Licence Key. I followed the given instructions to the letter, however, the download I received from the given link gave me only the Demo version and NOT the FULL WORKING VERSION. The instructions given in the e-mail as to how to REGISTER the product and get it working proved totally useless, as NOWHERE to be found was ANY "Register" button or option at all. Nowhere. I tried to re-download the software at least 3 times. - Same story each time. I sent at least 3 e-mails promptly to the Tech Support people over a period of some 12 hours, in increasily annoyed tones - all of which were totally ignored. This morning I get an email from one "Matt Hovey" telling me he did not like the tone of my e-mails, and simply refunding my payment !!!! At NO stage did I ever ask for a refund. All I EVER asked for was support in getting successfully downloaded to my computer that which I had ordered and paid for. What an absolutely DISGRACEFUL way in which to treat a paying customer. So I urge all of you to avoid this product and the thoroughly obnoxious guy who sells it. I will NOT be dealing with his company EVER again. A truly BAD experience. One learns the hard way, regrettably. Be WARNED.

Melbourne, Australia (where this customer is located) is roughly 12 hours timezone difference from USA Eastern time (where we are located). Customer's five emails were received Sunday morning, each including increasing levels of profanity and threatening language. We chose to refund the purchase and cut ties rather than endure further abuse.

If this review causes anyone to hesitate using our software or services, please contact me directly and I'll be happy to share with you many verifiable testimonials from satisfied individuals, corporations and government agencies we've serviced in the 7-year history of the Emailchemy product.

Rubbish. If this company was remotely interested in its customers and LOOKING AFTER THEM properly, it would have IMMEDIATELY concentrated on ADDRESSING my problems, rather than simply refunding my money, when it DID eventually get around to reading my emails. I NEVER asked for a refund at ANY time. I simply wanted my purchase to WORK. I stand by every word I have written. There was NO legitimate excuse for this company to simply refund my money and tell me it was not going to deal with me any more. NONE. It had a DUTY to assist me. The language that I used in my emails was no worse than that likely to be used by ANY extremely annoyed and frustrated customer. And HOW is the customer supposed to know just WHEN "Customer Service" is or is not in duty ? I repeat - DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS UNSATISFACTORY COMANY, OR WITH ITS UNSATISFACTORY SOFTWARE, OR WITH ITS OBNOXIOUS, ILL-MANNERED STAFF. This company has ZERO understanding of good customer relations. ZERO.


This guy is on crack. I've been a user of emailchemy for years and everything just works. It's good software, and the company is good too.

So, I searched on his username "notafool" and I found out that he's a fool. He's got nothing good at all to say about anything.

One of his reviews starts out "The moron that developed this application." Another of his reviews says "Your absurd claims that the dice rolls are utterly random are the claims of a deceptive fool."

And look at his user name - "notafool". Isn't that just the kind of name that someone who has been called a fool through his whole life would pick?

Normally I couldn't care less if someone posts a bad review, but this one was weird. It was vicious. And I don't like unfairly negative reviews of anything.

PDRAP - What you wrote is utter nonsense. Did you actually READ what I said about those particular applications that I criticized ? I fully justified what I wrote. As for your "theory" as to the origin of my chosen nickname "notafool" you are both insulting and wrong. I chose that nickname at the time I was criticizing David Byrum's "Absolute Backgammon" program and asserting that its dice rolls cheat. HEAPS of other folk have - for years on end - asserted exactly the same. I was simply sending the message to David that his denials did NOT fool me. As for wanting a "review" from me of Emailchemy - Well I cannot give it a review. The rude folk at Tech Support of Emailchemy NEVER got around to getting my PAID FOR software working !! They simply couldn't be bothered.They preferred to simply refund my money and tell me to go away. FANTASTIC tech support eh ? I 'm glad that YOUR experience with the company and its software was wonderful. Mine wasn't. On the contrary. It was LOUSY. So I stand totally behind what I wrote.The company has NO IDEA about good customer relations and good support.

Terrific software for handling different formats and let them flow into just one database.
It also solved all my Outlook issues (so I can left home my work laptop and use my macbook).
It is very fast and reliable (15 mins to convert a 2.5 gb .pst file with all the attachments: I lost days trying to convert it with O2M and I got a lot of errors anytime)

I purchased this product and didn't receive the email registration instructions and key. Emailed the author and have yet to hear back. Just be warned, the financial transaction happens quick but you don't get the product as quickly.

Since I posted this last, the developer worked with the company Emetrix to clear up the extra charge on my credit card. They issued the reg code a couple of days later. Just like anything else involving software, errors happen.

Great product which was worth the investment.


It's strange: I received the serial number just after I finished downloading (2-3 mins)


I also received my s/n immediately after purchasing, I remember, because it was quite a stressful day, and this product actually helped.

email recovery sucks, please backup.
