I have used MailSteward for a very long time. The app has been bulletproof until recently. Over the last year, I've unexplainably lost thousands of emails and now my files corrupt on a regular basis. I've contacted the company, but they offer little help other than to rebuild my databases which doesn't seem to work. He has also told me that I'm the only person with that problem which I find hard to believe since there is seldom one of anyting. The app is no longer reliable for me.

This has been my default Mail backup client for as long as I have owned a MAC. The developer releases periodic updates, with new releases that require a small fee for upgrade. The program works very well (I would recommend MailSteward rather than the lite version) you can set schedules, set up databases etc. It has full search handling and will also store attachments etc. Like any database program it can slow while searching, especially if you database is big. Mine is currently around 8 GB and it takes a minute or two to search for emails. It has never crashed on me, and you can export files, print etc from within the program. I wouldn't be without this program. The initial purchases fee is high, but you are getting a stable program with minor upgrade fees between major version changes. Well worth the money I paid for it.

Utterly horrible experience. Having archived your emails with this company and paying them $50.00 to do it, a couple of years later with literally no perceivable update to the UI and using something that works at a snails pace on the fastest Mac available, they hijack your archives and charge you another ¢20.00 and to add insult to injury, the serial number they sell you to access your archives doesn't work and tells you it isn't on their database... you email them as you need to access the database you paid them to create and nobody answers... what a bunch of total ransomware scumbags

I hate this app. I would give it minus four stars because the developers seem to be extremely greedy and to use a very manipulative tactic to make money. This app might as well be a subscription service because essentially I am charged $20 every 3-4 months. I bought the pro version and have been using it for some time. I cannot say that it is easy to use. But what bugs me the most is that they have VERY frequent upgrades and charge $20 per upgrade! Essentially, I am being billed (knowingly but extremely begrudgingly) every three months or so. The latest upgrade which is at the time I am writing this review is for 2 bug fixes and costs yet another $20. Also, when you get the app, you get to store emails until 2020. In 2020, there will be yet another upgrade. So expect, to pay every 3-4 years for the annual upgrade, and every 3-4 months $20 for a couple of bug fixes with no major overhaul of their interface!

The developer has been extremely responsive to my questions, so that is definitely has not been an issue for me.

I've been using Mail Steward since 2010 and found it to be robust and reliable. When I've run into issues, the developer has been responsive and helpful. I think Mail Steward Pro (the version I'm running) is well worth the investment and I'm subtracting half a star only because the interface could do with an overhaul.

Potentially a good application but buggy and with extremely poor support. I paid $50 for this, and have continual problems with it being unable to open my mail to archive it. I have contacted Mail Steward several times asking for help but they just ignore the emails.
Oh well, $50 just written off.
My advice is to avoid this application.

Love this app, have been using it for just over a year with no problems. But we had a burglary here and had the Mac stolen which was running our copy of MailSteward (they left the external hard drive that stored the backed up database - luckily). My problem is, I have lost my license key, so I cannot re-install on my new Mac. I have all my account details and proof of purchase. But I have no way to contact the people at MailSteward because their website has no customer support contact details. I have tried emailing their "BugReport" email, but after 1 month - still no reply. I would love to keep using this great app, but with no way of contacting them, I am going to be forced to look for an alternative.,, Shame. Let's hope someone from MailSteward reads these messages and gets in touch.
