    Hi minacross,

    As in any email client the user is the most important factor. How can a HTML based email hurt you if the preview window is closed?

    The main reasons I stopped using Incredimail is because of the sytem resources it uses and the "commercials" it adds to your outgoing mail.
    But my girlfriend was very happy when I gave her my copy (paid version). Especially now that it is available in Dutch. :)

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Frankly, it absolutely stuns me that anyone could read the EULA, recognize the bandwidth-use implications - and yet still d/l and use the program (and even perhaps pay for the privilege!!!).

    Utterly amazing. Pete

    Whether one uses the free version or paid version the privacy policy is the same .... Would something like this not make you wonder a tad about it?? o_O

    Hi, all,

    I've read about this incredible EULA before, but it's chilling to actually see it in print. This is nothing less than a LICENSE TO *S*T*E*A*L* !!! :mad: :mad: :'(

    Since Incredimail can get information from a recipient's machine (assuming I've understood this correctly- please tell me if I'm wrong), how does one tell that a message is from Incredimail when one receives it? More importantly, how does one block it? I should like to put them in the "Restricted Zone", but HOW??

    For now I'm going on line, collecting my mail and then severing the link before even looking at the day's catch. Is this enough to prevent such shenenigans? Also, will my firewall (McAfee) block such outbound traffic? :mad:

    Thanks for your getting the word out on this egregious invasion of privacy; keep up the good work. :)
