I just wanted to add my voice to the praise of this excellent email client. It might for some users not that eye candy but what you get is a sophisticated and most reliable email client with tons of features and a responsive developer. Highly recommend for business users but for private users, too! I recommend any interested user to give the test version a serious try!

The function Letter Opener offers is a nice one, but the price tag is questionable from my view. I owned LO as it was beta and called OMiC to some version of LO later (10 licenses or so...). However, to pay upgrade fees for every adaptation was expensive. I understand the viewpoint of the developer (see his comments to other users below) and I appreciate that he offers lifetime licenses now (it wasn't available when I dropped LO in the past as far as I remember). Anyway, whether or not LO is worth its price is something every user has to decide him/herself.

Just be aware there are alternatives (as mentioned in the "Similar Software" area above and some comments below) and even some email clients with a built in functionality similar to LO. I for example have switched to MailMate two and a half years ago. MailMate did have a price of $ 25 until lately but now $ 50 for different reasons (you may read about it on its developer page) and offers so much more functionality as LO and together.

True, Christopher. However, the lite version is an app without Mail integration (like "Klammer" [which opens MSG and OFT, too] or similar apps) and not an plugin like the the pro version. That makes a difference because (1) that is less convenient and (2) then it needs to be considered that just for opening winmail.dat files there is TNEFs Enough as free alternative as well.

Don't get me wrong, I don't deny that LO and even LO lite have their benefits. I also understand that you need to adjust the plugin when Mail or OS X makes changes but other developer do the same without charging an upgrade fee that often or asking to buy a life time license for 75% markup. It is all about if the user believes it is worth the price.

I absolutely agree with GRYPHONENT and highly recommend this fabulous piece of software.

The developer constantly improves his application with useful and well thought features. His support is outstanding (take a look at his support forum and you can also track the development of the software, if you are interested (take a look at his development site

He is already working on version 2 but that isn't a reason to hesitated of buying this software because "all licenses for Hardcoded Software applications come with lifetime free updates" (quote from the website of Hardcoded Software).

This is a quite interesting plugin and it integrates well with However, I agree with DRROBERT that the search, while very fast, is extremely imprecise. It seems to me that Rocketbox does not index local stored emails correctly at the moment. I will keep an eye on this, certainly.

A wonderful application is getting better and better. SC is a fantastic spell checker and offers a lot more functions than just spell checking (Shorthands, Ghostwriter...). It is a great time-saver for all writers, especially if you need to write in different languages. The developer is very responsive with long-time experience with spell checking software.

Still my favourite to file emails. For me it is nearly a solution of striking simplicity. Thanks to the developer for keeping this little nice app up-to-date (you may find a OS 10.6.1 compatible version on his website).

Yes, I noticed that too. It is very sad and even more disappointing because there was no advance warning at all (at least I haven't noticed one).

PTHPasteboard was one of my favourite apps. However, I can't understand how the developer treats his customers anymore - to cut off the website and to vanish into thin air... what should I say...

Ok, I would like to edit my original post because the website seems to be back. Thanks for that to the developer. Now you can find a blinking notice that PTHPasteboard does not work under Snow Leopard.

Will we see an update of PTHPasteboard for Snow Leopard?

Espionage does what it promises to do in a very efficient and unobtrusive way; as Jo said, it works flawlessly and is out of your way if you don't need it. It works swiftly and the notifications through Growl keeps you updated what happens. The possibility to associate applications to folders is very helpful and minimises the effort for the user using encrypted data.

As Jo I had a small issue too and mailed the developers using their support website. I can confirm Jo's experience: I got a very polite, prompt and, more important, a efficent and elaborate reply. Greg, one of the Tao Effect guys, has send me a script which fixed my problem immediately. Btw, it wasn't Espionage which caused the problem; a maintenance tool had changed some permissions, and Greg figured that out from the log file I had sent with my first email; he fixed the problem by return.

Still doesn't work for me--Safari doesn't display any image if I have Saft installed.

I have reported this problem to the developer months ago but I never got any response.

It seems it does not work with Safari 3.02 beta.
