Does 'incredimail' work on Mac with the Safari browser?

by getting old! / November 9, 2008 4:03 AM PST

I downloaded 'Incredimail' but it does not open. The pop-up window says "the movie could not be opened"!!! What does that mean? I'm pretty new to the 'mac world' and have no idea what this means. Could anyone help me figure this out?

I just took a look at their site and the application that is offered for download is for Windows machines only.
The file extension is .exe which is not an extension that runs in OS X.

However, if you have Parallels or VM Fusion installed, you could run XP or Vista on your Mac and then run the Incredimail program.

I remember shortly before my PC developed a worm - and I switched to Apple - I had a wee bit of a problem - but all in all it was the best e-mail there is - and I have been on computers since black and white monitor days so going to keep trying
