Recent changes

  • In the process of development of the new version we’ve continued fixing the bugs that came up in The Bat! 5.0.8. The majority of changes brought into The Bat! are meant to resolve these problems, but there’s also a series of new features – it is now possible to set CC and BCC fields when redirecting messages, "Message | Edit as New" action added etc. The complete list of improvements can be found here. The work on solving other problems is continued.

You wish to toss messages from your friends into special folders, send automatic replies to people from other departments, mark messages from your dear ones with special colours. Press Ctrl+Shift+F to quickly create a new filter based on the current message and define its functionality.

A sales manager should send personalised price lists and promotional material to her/his company partners. Just create Quick Templates by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Q, type the handle of the template you need and press Ctrl+Space - The Bat! will promptly insert text, attach files and make the message ready to send.

Every day, you have to go through endless lists of messages from somebody who wants to sell you something you don't need? You want to read messages only from people you need and do not waste your time reading all those ads? Just add BayesIt! anti-spam plug-in to The Bat!, feed it with examples of spam you receive and relax - BayesIt! filters our virtually all unwanted mail while messages you need get through.

"Most convenient and powerful email client for Windows that I've used."

From my experience, The Bat! is the most convenient and powerful client for email. It allows me to work with multiple mailboxes (IMAP4, POP3, APOP, SMTP mail servers), has a great filter system, text editor with formatting, message templates,"Quick Templates", and supports PGP. It lets me work with letters directly on the server (no load on my computer). Great product. Would strongly recommend to anyone.
