Mail Archiver X5.2.0

14 March 2020

Mail archiving, cleaning, and browsing.

Overview

Mail Archiver X protects one of your Mac-based small business' most important assets: your email.

  • Archive with one click: After you've set up archiving, future archives can be created in one click. And these are smart archives, taking only what you have not archived before.
  • Email clients and services: All major email clients are supported: Apple Mail, Eudora, Gmail, Exchange, Outlook, Entourage, Powermail, Postbox, and Thunderbird.
  • Protect and speed up: Archive as much of your email as you want, or archive and speed up your email client by removing the mails from the mail client.
  • Find your mails easily: Search archived email as easily as you search email today.
  • Automatic verification: Mail Archive X automatically checks and verifies as mails are added to an archive.
  • Flexible export formats: Easily export your email to Evernote, PDF, Filemaker, or other formats to suit your needs.

What's new in Mail Archiver X

Version 5.2.0:
Added Translations
  • French
  • Italian
  • Spanish
Interface improvements
  • The Options part of the Setup has been redesigned. You can now select dates directly in the window. If you archive in an age range you can see the date that belongs to the age.
  • The archive button now has a dropdown if the open archive and the one from the Setup are different.
Speed improvements
  • Multiple mails are moved in one script to the trash for Mail.
  • Archiving Gmail accounts from AppleMail is now almost as fast as archiving non-Gmail accounts.
  • The date range is directly selected in the IMAP account. If you only want to archive the newest emails then select a small date range like the last 7 days and the archival will be much faster.
General improvements
  • Removed the manual from distribution.
  • Added the selected date range to the app log.
  • When reading a large directory the beachball is no longer shown.
  • Mails are only deleted for the selected date range.
  • The archive no longer changes every time when opening.
  • The diagnosis now runs without showing the beachball. Finally!!!
  • The text in the email details is selectable again.
  • Emails can be colored for Mail instead of moving them to the trash.
  • Mail Archiver no longer needs to stay in front when archiving to Filemaker.
  • The Filemaker file not longer is in the Applications/Extras folder but only in the Documents folder.

pity to see so many bad reviews about this product. haven't used it yet. but I am happy the way Mail Backup X has been working. I was surprised to find so many features in just one tool. archiving, mail backing, mail viewing, and mail conversion as well. it doesn't let me find an alternative. the only tool in the market that works on yahoo mail archiving as well. a multi-purpose tool. this tool is probably designed aiming the need for next 5 years. quite ahead of its contemporaries. you can check it out at their home site: www.mailbackupx.com. I just found they have been running 50 % discount as well. get it asap.

This application looks fine but is terribly sloooow ! A nightmare that remove the interest for large database. I don't know how it is written, by obviously, this is not professional standards. Very frustrating.

I've just updated to version4 and have been a Mail Archiver user for a number of years. The set up is relatively quick and easy, the U.I. is good when looking at mail, and it imports Mail Tags into the archive. I've had no problem with search at all (the trick is to enter you search word then click through the various Mailbox folders you've set up).
As for the support, the developer offers some of the best support/service I've ever had. There have been times when I've had Beatrix get back to me within 5 minutes after a support request for some minor issue.
There is a trial version available, so all I can say is give it a go.

What a useless application. In my 30 years in business I have never seen a app that crashes so much. ...

After this program constantly crashes I have went to Email Archiver Pro which kicks its ass. Get full search function and every email is turned into a PDF with attachments.

I've struggled with this utility for over a year. I just uninstalled it. After this update it restarted scheduled backups that had been dormant for many months Searches return zero matches even for a word like "and." Searches only work in a specific folder. No global search. If a folder has a nested folder in it I don't think it searches it. It's slow with a lot of beach balls and no progress bars/indicators for searches. The daily backups have a progress bar and it takes 4+ hours to process changes in my 9K emails adding 20-50 emails to the db in the end. It hangs after that and needs to be force quit. I think this must be my setup as others seem to think this utility works fine. I rate it as per my experience. The developer is responsive but I just can't spend the time/hassle. Mail Steward has been far superior for me with none of the hassles. Thanks ... Ken

Mail Archiver X is one of the best apps in its realm. There is alomost no apps that could overcome it. I follow and use this app for years and it is getting better and better. The developer Ms. Beatrix Willius responded on every my problem immediately and accuracy. The Best!

"All major email clients are supported: Apple Mail, Eudora . . ." As Eudora doesn't run in MacOS 10.7., which is the minimum for this software, this claim is inaccurate. :-(

As patp2247, I've found nothing better for a reasonable price. Some things miss me (eg management Apple Mail's flags) but overall, the software works well and most importantly, the support provided by Beatrix is excellent.

not really happy with this software, unfortunateliy there's nothing better - kerio is too expensive for one player. I make backups once a week, and every time mailarchiver takes over 100% of cpu, needs half a day to backup a lousy few mails- and stalls my mac.

The archiving and export to Filemaker does not work correctly. It exports a few thousand emails and then crashes. The developer said it works for many people, but not for everyone and did not come up with a fix. The search functionality is limited and slow.

This is the best mail archive app for mac, other closest alternative is eagle filer, i like eagle filer interface better, but unfortunately the email preview is messed up. But mail archiver x can preview my email nicely, without messing it up. Plus i amaze how the developers react to my email, they solve the problem right away, it's not a mistake to buy this. My wish for this app: 1. Better icon 2. Selectable tab in mail list Other than that, this is a great app.

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!

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")

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.

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!
