Email archiving solution. (was MailBase)

Overview

FastMailBase works in tight conjunction with your favorite eMail client by importing selected eMails from it to store and organize them in a lightning fast database for later powerful search and management.

FastMailBase will remain in demo mode until you provide a valid registration key, with full features available but only limited to 100 emails import. As soon as registered, this limitation is removed.

product is still $97US (via developers link to Kagi), not $67. IMO, way too expensive. Not even a possibility that I would buy at current pricing. I suggest: $25. Note also that developers web site comparison chart justifies his price in part by comparing to Mac OSX Mail which he lists at $129, and Entourage listed at $399. He does note that they are 'bundeled prices' in a footnote, but still, the prices in the chart are bolded to get your attention. So he totally misses the point that (a) the actual mail apps costs much less, (b) the other mail archive apps are much more reasonably priced than his, (c) the higher priced email client application actually does a lot more than just save off emails to disk... It is pricing itself out of market, maybe out of existence. Last point, the ManyBases appears to be the same developer who posted many identical "replies" to other macUpdate listed email archive applications, all telling the people to go buy his product instead of the one that he posted his 'reply' to. circa mid 2004.

$97??? What are they smoking? For an app that does nothing else but archiving email FastMailBase is priced outrageously expensive. Compare what you can get for $97: the complete iLife package, or iWorks. Or almost Word or Excel in their standalone version. I'd register this for $25... and not a penny more. Will stick to EntourageEmailArchiver (EEA X) instead. That one's been reliable, affordable, and good for years.

I even won't download for the testing purposes. The price is simly too high... Very high. It's the price of the hard drive disaster recovery tools. When the price will go down to about $30, max $40, then this program will be on my wish list.

It doesn't matter how well it does it's one job, $97 to do that one job is ridiculous. I won't even evaluate it with a price that high. There are too many alternatives available.

"the application (in demo mode) would seem to do everything its says it will" You're right, Macal, and if you buy it to remove the 100 emails demo limitation, you will find it even more essential when dealing with 40000 emails or more that any mail client is unable to handle with the same speed, safety and ease of use. 2 years of develoment and testing brings it to 13 cents a day. Isnt your peace of mind and datas value worth several bucks? How much would you pay to recover your lost data?

$97 may be a reasonable price to pay - obviously is in the mind of the developer :) I might even consider paying it... But, it is MUCH more expensive than the competition and people here and on versiontracker and elsewhere (eg Hawkwings blog on Apple Mail) think it is (overly)-expensive. That leads to a vicious circle where not enough people buy it (or even look at it) and development slows or even stalls :( I've seen it happen before with other excellent applications (eg Sciral Consistency) and it is not only the developer who suffers but the also those who buy the application (and don't see it improved), those who buy a competitor (because competition is limited) and those who wish they could afford to buy it. No one wins. Pricing software is a difficult art but it can mean the difference between the failure and success of an other excellent application. Regards A prospective user who doens't want to see the application die...

While I agree that $97 is far too much, the application (in demo mode) would seem to do everything its says it will. Imports (In my case.) from Mail, stores attachments, gives me different views of the mail I've imported, searches on criteria I choose and lets me reply either through Mail or the application. All of this quite simply with no big setup hassles. But $97?

- No support for Mailsmith. - Slow to import. - Way too expensive. - Should offer the option to use one's own MySQL database instead of the built-in one.

- No support for Mailsmith. This is already planed, even if MailSmith is relatively confidential. - Slow to import. It does a lot of checks to have the smartest import, and after the first big import, dayly updates just takes seconds. - Way too expensive. Several month of development to bring the most achieved product on the market, and filling a high customer request. Isn't it worth it? - Should offer the option to use one's own MySQL database instead of the built-in one. The Valentina SQL db is way faster than MySQL, and doesn' t require obscure installation by users, since self contained.

The Valentina SQL db is way faster than MySQL, and doesn' t require obscure installation by users, since self contained. The Windows UI is faster than OSX's. That doesn't make it better. You can use SQLLite to avoid separate installation.

MailBase is a true application with platform native interface, it doesn't substitute to your usual mail client, but simply provides the fastest way of archieving and retrieving your read mails. And it doesn't suffer of web interface slowness.
