Outspring Mail1.1.2

21 June 2010

Intelligent email client.

Overview

Note: Outspring Mail is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

Outspring Mail... Imagine an email program that was smart enough to observe and learn how you handle your email. Like offering to reply to certain types of email messages using a response you've previously sent. Or giving you the option to auto-file a message you've read based on how you've filed similar messages in the past. What if you could defer a message from your inbox for a few days or weeks so that it magically reappears later when you're ready to deal with it? What if this program had an amazing junk mail filter that would leave your inbox devoid of spam? And what if this program was as familiar and easy to use as Apple Mail?

Outspring Mail ushers in an entirely new category of software to the Mac: adaptive intelligent software. By using advanced database analysis and Bayesian logic, the program is able to ascertain patterns in the way you reply to and file your mail and make suggestions to assist you with your communications. Think about it... if you frequently reply to an email message that says, "How do I get to your office?" or words to that effect; shouldn't your email program be smart enough to know that you've replied to this same type of message before? And shouldn't it then offer to use one of these replies for the current message? The program also offers a similar technique for filing messages. Once the program has gone through a short learning process of observing your mail filing habits and cross-referencing message content, it will begin to suggest appropriate folders or mailboxes to file messages. Instead of dragging messages to folder icons, you'll be presented with one or more likely destination buttons that will automatically file your mail in an appropriate location.

What's new in Outspring Mail

Version 1.1.2:
  • Fixed incompatibility between Outspring Mail and Safari 5 that cause messages not to be displayed.
  • Fixed bug that caused some messages to be displayed as blank.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when closing standalone message display window.

I agree that in the current state the product is expensive. https://nomwebsolution.com/high-pr-social-bookmarking-sites-in-2019/

Why so expensive....? Okay it is nice and fast works very fine but also there are others which does the job and cost less.
Also http://emailsupportnumber.org/ is there for help. Then why...?

$95 for an email client that the developer has pulled from their website? Yeah there's a wise investment. I think not.

I thought this application was dead and buried and am really surprised an update has appeared. I used Outspring up to version 1.1.2 and had quite a few problems en route ending with a few crashes, the final one of which made me decide to drop the application as it had become so unreliable. After checking the website it looked as if the developer was no longer supporting it, which was unfortunate as it had so much promise, end of story. Then 1.1.3 appears out of the blue and the crashes I was experiencing have been fixed. I have started using it again and live in hope and although there have been a few negative responses it still has the makings of a good email client although rather a little expensive. As for the developer, well it remains a bit of a mystery. Perhaps a reply in these columns would be welcome?

Hmm...I contacted the developer about 2/3 months ago and was told that this product was no longer being supported. I wonder what's going on?

This thing looks like it's on SERIOUSLY maintenance mode. There is no mention of it on their web site... they're doing iPhone apps and say "All our products are available exclusively through the iTunes App Store."

Just found this email client, well actually, have been looking at it for sometime. Despite the negative reviews and or comments here, decided to buy it. Guess what?...it has worked just fine for me. I did not get my registration number immediately, and sent an email to the company. I got a pretty quick response, letting me know that they process orders manually and that it would be sent shortly. I got the registration, and have been using it problem free for some time now. My experience may have been just a fluke, but for me, this is the only client I use in conjunction with "Clearmymail", another service that truly has eliminated all my spam. It costs to buy a subscription, but is absolutely worth every penny. I am happy with this client and my purchase.

Developer, can you please add the option to sort all messages in the inbox by EMAIL ADDRESS, not just by "sender"? I run a business, and deal with hundreds of different customers every day. I need to sort by email address! Can you please add an optional "Email" column? You'll be my hero! I'm sure that countless other people would also appreciate this sorting option. If you add that option, I will buy the program immediately. Thank you!

Well... it looks interesting. I have a couple IMAP/SSL accounts, and Outspring took a minute or two to configure (it defaulted to non-SSL, and one of the IMAP accounts is SSL only). But then I got it working and it has a number of ways of tweaking the UI that are different and useful. It's "brain" was also interesting... a number of my messages it suggested places to file them (3 of 4 were correct), and on a few messages it suggested replies (one was appropriate, the other no so much -- a message where my wife gave a suggested list of people to email a birth announcement to, it suggested an auto-reply of "thanks, heading out for a bike ride I'll be back by 7 can you take the dog out when you get home?" would have gotten me in REALLY hot water. But... I got a good laugh at least. The brain probably needs a little more time to adjust... and to develop some coping mechanisms for the female half of or species :-) So that said, right now using Mail in combination with MailTags and Mail Act-On can do most of the stuff that Outspring Mail can do, though it's more manual. This does seem interesting, though, and with some further refinement maybe could be worth continuing to montitor. As for the price... tricky subject. I wouldn't pay $95 for the product as-is. Still, if it really saves productivity down the line that's not so much $, given MailTags + MAO is around $50. The UI is okay... I really prefer the buttons to Mail's, though the folders ain't got no alibi. It *is* nice to be able to customize which IMAP folders can and cannot be seen, and the preview mode is novel but I'd need to spend more time adjusting it for it to be useful. I'd give it a 4/5 on promise and maybe a 3/5 for where it is right now in the scope of things... price not being considered.

It has great promise. I'm not commonly an early adopter, but I like what I see of this mail software and in the short time I've been using it the updates have added dimension to it. Give it a try.

I agree that in the current state the product is expensive. That said, I am still looking for a strong IMAP e-mail client, Thunderbird or Apple Mail don't fit it yet. PowerMail would be great, but that has no IMAP to speak of. Outspring is fast, clever (that brain works), and has a nice and ambitious plan ahead. It is my daily mailer right now, and whenever there is a quirk, their response it timely, to the point, and helpful. I think the product will be great, and I made the switch now to be there.

Looks rather nice, but unfortunately couldn't get it to download my gmail with IMAP. So I couldn't really try it.

Sorry to be redundant, but at $95 Outspring is horribly overpriced. The developer has, as of 6th April '08 a special introductory price of $59 but, imo, it's still too much. I tried it out but could find no good reason to use this email client. What's wrong with Outspring has been pretty well covered, below, in a previous review. For some reason, I could not send any emails from one of my accounts; I kept getting a message telling me that Outspring couldn't connect with the smtp server...something about failure to authenticate. I double checked all my account info but could find no errors. I thought, perhaps, that the port setting might be wrong but could find no info regarding that nor, of course, any way of changing it. Apple's mail client works pretty well but if you're looking for a reasonably priced, well designed and totally dependable client, take a look a Gyazmail; it's only $18 and works beautifully. I'm totally pleased with it....and so are many others.

Tried out in search of a meaning to the price. Something to point out: Searching high and low, i didn't find the way to set up the check mail interval. It insists pulling the server without a way to stop it. Please, gimme back my options. No way to save all the attachments or preview them as in mail.app. You have to 'download' (?!) them one by one. It puts a stupid 'This message has been sent with Outspring Mail. Please visit.... yada yada' footer on every message you write. No way to delete it from the message. It is possible to remove it once registered? it is a trial version? if yes, gimme the full trial period! It doesn't remember previous state. You have to click everytime to select the last mailbox and/or the last message seen. the Task pane HUD goes out of screen instead of switching opening direction. Application icon poorly designed (look at it with Quicklook or command+tab) Task pane icons OS 9 era. Sort toolbar icons not in Apple HIG compliance (and poorly designed). Please use Apple standard GUI elements. 95$?! Maybe 5$. Maybe. Mail.app over this every day.

There is something wrong with this price tag. I can buy a complete PIM (Entourage, Contactizer etc with mail client integrated or integration with Apple stuff) with the same or less money (The entire Microsoft Office Suite Home Edition costs more or less the same amount). If you charge so much be sure to give back something that works. It is a minimum required. On a side note: spend something on your site (the stock Joomla! theme is a cheap option) and in marketing effort (some screenshots maybe? a guided tour illustrating all the features? a clearly stamped price? and so on).

Our org used to use Quickmail, but gave it up a couple of years ago. We've kept our eye on the company, however. I tried, then upgraded from beta to the new release. Great potential, but it was really SLOW adapting to the demands associated with my very full folders for two email accounts (about 14K messages in total). I love the look and feel, especially Smart Mailboxes, but I'd like a little more flexibility to fiddle with what boxes are smart and why that might be so. With some further work this may be a dynamite product.

Not ready for prime time. This client has some interesting possibilities, but it's still a beta. It crashes often. At one point it totally refused to launch again, I had to reinstall the demo. It's got some innovative new features but it's missing too many basic and necessary functionality (only one signature, no shortcut key for send that I can find). The company touts SmartFolders but I don't see how to create any beyond the default SmartFolders they supply. The "Brain" may work eventually, but I need rules too: if my email client can do some thinking for me that's fine, but don't take away my right to think for myself too! At $95 it's clearly marketing to power users (if an email client delivered truly innovative, useful power features, I'd pay close to 100 bucks for it!), but in its current state it's not a power application.
