I use both MailSteward and MailSteward Pro on two different computers, one personal and the other professional respectively.

MailSteward is reliable and easy to use. MailSteward Pro is much faster thanks to the SQL database and absolutely worth the extra expense for archiving business email.

By archiving my mail out of Apple Mail, it makes Apple mail more responsive and stable while never losing the ability to "quick find" historic messages and associated attachments.

Whenever I need support, I'm convinced that John never sleeps because my requests for support and his responses seem more like "instant messaging" than email. This guy is on top of his game!

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Love this app! This allowed us to create a digital library of DVD's we own and have it play well with our Apple iTV.

I lowered the score for "Ease of Use" because the documentation is too light for a novice to figure out and understand advanced feature settings.

Love it! Made a huge difference when watching videos through iTV now that iTV can properly categorize each.

One question: Is there any online documentation? I don't quite understand the benefit/value/downside to using or not using the "Optimize files after tagging" and should I use that setting, I have no idea how or why to set HD minimum resolutions and how that would affect what I view on an iPhone 4 or iTV on a HD TV.

Any help or clarification for a novice would be appreciated.

So, other than becoming shareware with a price-tag of $25, have any new features been added to version 2.0?

I have enjoyed the application as freeware and I have no problem paying for this quality application as shareware if it has new and additional features and if it is going to be maintained more frequently than in the past.

A brief explanation for the evolutionary direction of this application would help along with the developers plans for maintenance.

Great app. My antivirus software found a virus in a hidden virtual memory directory and was unable to quarantine the file.

I was about to go into Terminal to find the culprit when I thought, there must be "an app for that" and I found this little jewel, and FREE at that.

Problem solved, and my antivirus software and system security is happy again. Thank you to the developer!

Forget this product if you bank with Merrill Lynch CMA. It has no way of working with their Visa Signature card. This is a terrible downgrade from the previous version of Quicken for Mac.

Mike - Not only are you a very creative developer but you've proven yourself to be an excellent communicator as well. Thank you for the time and care you put behind this application.

I would rather have a "paid" version where I can remove #TweeterForMac

The fact that this is added without any advance notification (and no way to turn it off) is not ethical.

Note that the screenshot of the Growl notification doesn't even show this #TweeterForMac as appended.

I love this application and, interestingly enough, I prefer the direction Chax 3.x is headed in Snow Leopard. It feels much more integrated. The developer is really on top of this and the timely updates are rolling out surprisingly fast. Thank you and keep up the great work!

BEWARE: After paying, you will not receive a license. I have sent three emails to the author with no response. Fortunately, I paid with AMEX through PayPal so I can dispute the payment.

After applying this security update, I can no longer print to my network Phaser 8550DP. Used Onyx, used Cocktail, used Diskwarrior, deleted preferences and queues... no luck. Print job shows up in queue but queue stops due to CUPS errors.

I cannot get this to work.

The widget is generated perfectly in the browser but it won't download. I have read all details and double checked my entries. I tried different browsers. Any help or suggestions from the developer wouldbe appreciated. Here is what I see in the browser upon generating the widget:

Warning: fopen(NapaValleyWineRadio.zip) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/innermin/public_html/WIDGETWIZARD/zip.php on line 165

Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5 at 10.4.8 with 4GB SDRAM. Version 1.0.3 works very well with 10.4.8 and iTunes 7.01. However, version 1.0.7 fails with 10.4.8 and iTunes 7.01. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to get 1.03 again unless you were as lucky as I was to have saved a copy.
