Richer Email Application

For those regularly using Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express and who are afraid of VBScripts wreaking havoc on them in the form of macros, there is some light at the end of tunnel. There is a very good alternative email application called Calypso (now Courier) from RoseCitySoftware. Perhaps in my first organization, 3rdAgenda, this was the default email application that was bieng used. That time the company that was making Calpyso was MCSDallas. I don't think MCSDallas is any more and RoseCity Software has taken control over Calypso and has upgraded its features into more powerful Courier.

As a limited time offer, Courier 3.5 is available for download as a fully free non-expiring registered version.A few of the good features in Calypso/Courier are:

  • Support for multiple email accounts
  • Configurable, intuitive interface
  • Support for POP and IMAP mailboxes
  • Ability to turn HTML mail viewing on or off in any window with a single mouse click
  • "Color Markers" to help organize your messages
  • Automatic mailbox backup
  • Mailing list support, including "Blind Send" capabilities
  • Superb mail filtering capabilities, including advanced anti-SPAM tools.
  • Easily configurable for server and proxy based anti-SPAM programs.
  • Address auto-completion when composing mail
  • Multi-language spelling support
  • Auto-response capability
  • Mail templates
  • Mail archiving
  • Optional password protection for mailboxes
  • Calypso also a support discussion forum hosted at Yahoogroups -- CalypsoMail.
