I previously gave a good rating for CRM4Mac but they introduced a serious bug in version 2.0 with auto synchronization on startup and did not fix it in 2.1. I reported the bug but they did nothing about it. If you have a lot of email in your "on my mac" account DO NOT enable CRM4Mac to synchronize with it or enable it. I could open the program the first time and then it starts syncronizing. The next time I try to open the program it will hang on the startup screen. The only way to recover is to completely delete every part of CRM4Mac from your computer including the undocumented helper application.
At the very least you should enable the logging to console option in preferences as there is no other way to see what went wrong. I suggested when 2.0 exihibited this bug that IBizzi include a way to disable auto synchronizatiion at startup so that at least the program would open. They didn't. I have had high hopes for their approach which is to leverage icalendar and addressbook but their implementation has never risen above beta quality code.

The problem is that I have large email files and CRM4Mac chokes on certain types of emails. I confirmed with their tech support that they have had crashes. Because I have so many emails and there is not way to tell CRM4MAC to not process all my mailboxes the odds of it encountering a bad email and crashing are high in my case.
