Guide Review - Magellan Pro 1.5.2 - Email Program
Magellan Pro does away with this anachronism. All mail is kept in a database, and instead of folders you can define custom views and folders that show you exactly the messages you want to see.
Magellan Pro's other features aren't bad either. Take the comprehensive autoresponder functionality, for example. Magellan Pro also has extensive international language support, content-based spam filters and other small, but useful gimmicks.
Unfortunately, Magellan Pro users are limited to POP accounts, the message editor doesn't support HTML or text re-flowing, and templates cannot be used for replies.
