We’re pleased to announce the release of MailForge 3. MailForge 3 represents a substantial rewrite of the MailForge underpinnings. The result is a leaner, faster, more stable and reliable email client. We’ve worked hard to take the feedback we have received throughout the life of MailForge 1 & 2 and implement it in 3.0, while still keeping true to MailForge’s original goals.

Please report any bugs to our bug tracking system: IDS Bug Tracker

Be advised that MailForge 3 is a paid upgrade for anyone who purchased prior to 2012. Lifetime license holders, of course, are exempt from the upgrade fee. Due to a change in the serial scheme in MailForge 3, we will be sending out new Lifetime License Serials to the relevant individuals. We will be sending these out during the coming week. In the meantime, MailForge 3 is available as a 30-day trial.

As always, if there are any questions, please feel free to ask.

What MailForge Is…And What It Isn’t…

As the release of MailForge 3 nears (finally), we wanted to take a moment to clear up a misconception that has seemed to gain strength over time. Lately, we’ve been getting a number of emails from individuals who profess that if MailForge 3 is not an EXACT duplicate of Eudora, right down to individual menu items, they will be very unhappy, etc.

The only problem is, MailForge was never designed to be an exact duplicate. Our press release announcing the release of MailForge 1.0 said the following: “providing users with a familiar look and feel, while at the same time adding features and abilities to further enhance the user experience.”

Nowhere does that imply it would be an EXACT duplicate. Our goal, rather than creating an exact duplicate, is to create an email program for power email users. In many cases, this will mean mimicking Eudora, since it was the quintessential power user email program. In some cases, however, Eudora’s way of doing things is decidedly less than ideal, a throwback to a time when operating systems and email were far simpler. In these cases, we choose not to follow Eudora’s model, instead implementing features the way we think they should be.

Hopefully, that leads to a better email client. It does not, and never will, mean that MailForge is an EXACT Eudora duplicate.
