MailMate 1.4 Released

We are proud to announce the release of MailMate 1.4. It is the first version of MailMate to appear on Apples App Store. We celebrate this with a substantial price reduction which is also available at our own store. Currently, the only difference between the App Store version of MailMate and the version available via the “Download” link above is that the latter has its own Software Update mechanism (which includes optional access to beta builds of MailMate if you like to be on the cutting edge).

The major new changes in version 1.4 are:

  • Markdown support (more about that in a future blog post)
  • Reorganized and extended preferences
  • Various IMAP and SMTP improvements

But there are numerous other big and small changes. You can get all the details in the release notes.

  • As email search abilities go, this seems less like bringing a gun to a knife fight, and more like thundering into that particular duel at the controls of a helicopter gunship.
  • Needless to say, the program never crashed, glitched, or gave me any sort of trouble during my tests. MailMate does not know weakness.

  • MailMate is a refreshingly efficient way to deal with mail in IMAP accounts, all with handy keyboard shortcuts, superior search and precise smart folders.
  • As a testament to its raw power, MailMate does not stop at From: or body text, of course; instead, you can have it match just names or first names, email addresses, domain names, parts of domain names, quoted text and what not.

  • Search is amazing, providing you with a ridiculous amount of control.
  • Practically everything can be accessed using the keyboard.

  • I […] felt immediately at home with its much more capable filtering system that can be directed at any folder, not just the inbox, and the ability to construct complex any/all rules that can be nested multiple levels deep.
  • […] in general it just feels significantly faster than Mail.app

  • I've been stress testing MailMate with a variable and highly intermittent connection. […] My overall assessment is that MailMate has been markedly superior [to Apple Mail] in this use modality […]

  • […]this way of handling signatures is far superior to any other approach I’ve seen so far. Why hardly anyone implements it in this way is a mystery to me.

  • […] on first run, MailMate spotted my Mail.app IMAP settings, prompted for import, then got to work without fuss.
  • it has a phenomenal array of filtering, statistics and views […] My favourite is “Correspondence”, which picks out all email from your current correspondent and lists it in a separate pane… instantly.
  • The author should be rewarded for having the courage to start from scratch.
