Guide Review - WordPerfect Mail 2.0.4 - Email Program
WordPerfect Mail encourages this "search-based" approach and excels at making it even more efficient with its easy to use search bar, attachment searching, blazing speed and smart saved searches.
Another important thing WordPerfect Mail does well together with SAproxy is filtering out spam before you get to see it. It's great to see WordPerfect Mail read RSS feeds like email, integrating two of the main information sources in one store.
Unfortunately, IMAP support is not so great, though. It is admittedly not easy to integrate IMAP accounts with search-centered access, but I think WordPerfect Mail can do better than simply downloading all mail.
While it's reasonable that WordPerfect Mail is configured not to show remote images in messages by default, it would be nice if this setting could be overridden per message (or maybe for known senders.
WordPerfect Mail also includes a hands-on calendar with support for downloadable calendars and a neat interface that lets you see, create and edit events directly from the email view. A task list is missing from WordPerfect Mail, though.
