Incredimail THEN and NOW

I also am a premium lifetime member of Incredimail but I am very unhappy with its latest version. Since recently upgrading, Incredimail tells me it no longer supports its Office Outlook Add On program and I am unable to use Incredimail through Office Outlook. I realize I could make Incredimail my primary e-mail account but that is a choice I do not want to make. Also, since the upgrade I am getting a lot more junk mail than ever and the junk mail options that were available to me in my previous e-mail version are no longer available, such as allowing only approved senders e-mail me and bouncing unwanted email back to the sender! Instead Incredimail wants an additional $39.95 for what already had the version I was using prior to Incredimail's latest version. I find now I no longer am using Incredimail although I believed it to be a great program for the last several years. Incredimail's response to me is that I cannot download a prior version of their software and they no longer support the Outlook Office Add On. To say I am disappointed is to put it mildly. My advice is if you already have an older version of Incredimail on your computer, PLEASE DO NOT UPGRADE!!

Wow, just in time, THANX!. I have been useing incrediamil premium for about a year now and I use it as my primary email acct but only for family and friends. I have a Hotmail acct that I use for all Biz and other mail. I like it that way as i do not get any junk in it.I was thinking of upgrading in fact, I was going to this week. I really like the creativity of writing letters and the notifiers.But if there are any issues after upgrading I guess I like it as it is now and will stay with premium.Thanx for the heads up.

Lesson in general.

If you've got a program you're happy with, burn the setup.exe (or whatever the setup program is called) to a CD so have it around when need arises. Never run the install program from the web, download it to your hard disk first. You can't lose what you did backup.

Also keep all license information, passwords, registration info at hand (on the same CD), for example in a zip-file together with the setup.
The package will be very useful, for example, if you have to format the hard disk, re

Ask something? Did earlier versions of Icredimail have add-ons for Office?
I have earlier versions on CD that I downloaded ... also found a version Of Incredimail Add-ons for Office on the Internet from June 2004, is it worth using?
