Version 3.0.5 20131002 is better than all previous. Ms Beatrix Wilius, the developer, is fantastic in updating her "baby" and supporting all users. Her support is efficient, quick and exact, like her "baby" is! Bravo!

This developer is head & shoulders the best i've encountered over the past 2 decades in providing customer support. Makes me think of artisans who, centuries ago, did that as a matter of course - a practice that in our day has all but disappeared.

Unsurprisingly, the software reflects the developer's excellence - deceptive simplicity in form & function adapted to do what a user like me needs, (like a good poem, it masks the effort of its creation).

I'd give it more than 5 stars if it were an option.

[BTW, i'm rarely moved to comment on software, despite the fact that i buy on a regular basis, & that my decisions to buy are often meant to support developers who do good work].

For long time I am asking developer to find a way to allow users to change size of fonts. Fonts were small and one with a slightest eye problem couldn't be able to read. Now, it has been fixed, finaly! Thank you, Beatrix!

Without doubts, I recommend the application.

Any complains or new ideas you can address to developer (Beatrix). She will reply with right solution in no time. This is my experience. I don't mind look if the app does what is intended for. And Mail Archiver X does it in a brilliant way. The look will getting nicer an nicer with each update (as well as fonts will getting bigger with each update). There is no such quick and efficient mail archiver on the market. Almost perfect.

Good idea but...

1. (deal-breaker) REALbasic is unacceptable slow on my Core2Duo 2.33 with 3GB RAM and ultrafast Seagate Momentus XT 500GB under 10.6.4, 64bit

2. (nice to have) no Boolean search strings like "Peter -Mueller" (=show me all mails with the name "Peter" but not with the name "Mueller")

This is quite a nice idea and much better done than many of the other comparable apps. BUT...
First, it is written in RealBasic and it looks really ugly. I doubt the dev has anytime anything heard of Apples GUI-guidelines. Besides all the personal impressions, it has such drawbacks like a logfile INSIDE the app itself.
Very nice idea but needs still quite a lot of work!

Tell me, how to make it better. To say it's ugly is easy, but how to make it better is rather more complicated.

I'd be glad to tell you how to make it better.

1. (BIG required fix) Make the browser window resizable. I bought a 17 inch PB so I could use the nice big screen.

2. Header Graphic: Gone! Why do I need that? Is it a web site? No its software. The graphic wastes a ton of screen space.

3. Header Buttons: SHould be the standard OS X toolbar, including the ability to hide them using the toolbar button. SHould have the standard options of text only / icon only / icon & text and would be nice to have the option for small icons.

4. Border between the content & then actual window edge: Gone. Brushed metal apps sometimes use the border, but most Aqua apps don't. Just open text edit to see what I mean. Borders accomplish nothing & waste space.

5. "Entry View": OS X Has default widgets for tabs. Those should be used rather than graphics. This feels like a web page to me & makes me uncomfortable. It takes me "out of OS X". I think sometimes software developers want to be "artists" and make pretty things for people to look at rather than keeping people from having to see anything new. I prefer when every app has similar recognizable features & (honestly no offense) don't care much about seeing the developers creativity or personality in an app.

6. "Entry View" again: Would be nice to be able to collapse the header to just the date sent, from field & subject. It takes up so much space as it is.

7. "Entry View" again: Why the use of fields in the "Header Detail" tab? I guess I could see it for the search option, but it makes it impossible to copy complete header text.

8. "List View": Headers use weird titles. Stick with the standard "to, from, subject, date" (date has an E on the end most of the time). Columns usually hi-light when you sort by them, your app does not. It would be far better to see this list view located in a split view above the "Entry View" so that both "screens" are combined into one. (See Apple's Mail.App for example)

9. Tools palate: Not too horrible, but I'd prefer smaller icons & a vertical toolbar option. See Photoshop as an example.

10. For more research & apple standards this is a great place to start: http://developer.apple.com/ue/

marekjanci had trouble on 14 Feb 2007
After downloading and unzipping the folder, I try to open Mail Archiver by double-clicking on it. It won't open, and I get a message stating that either the app is mssing elements or is damaged. Do I need filemaker to open the app?

G5-2.0, 6 gb of Ram, and using current Mac OS 10.4.8.

Please update your StuffIt Expander. This should fix your problem.

Thank you for the response, but I'm already using the most recent version of Stuffit Expander. I'd downloaded your app again today, and when I click on its icon, I get the same error message about it being damaged or not complete. The icon for your app is a generic one, i.e., the one with the pad, pencil, etc. Is this any indication that there's a problem?

Can you contact me directly at mail@beatrixwillius.de ? This seems to be very weird and I would like to investigate this in more detail.
