Current Version: 2.0.1 (July 22, 2010)

MailForge (formerly known as Odysseus) is a cross-platform, Eudora-style email client from Infinity Data Systems that started life in late 2007. It's designed to be a best-of-breed email client, focusing on power, elegance, and simplicity, and targeted at users who loved Eudora.

Unlike classic Eudora, MailForge is under active development, and the authors are diligently trying to improve on areas where Eudora had started to lag behind, such as integration with the individual operating systems that it runs on.

In addition to the features currently in MailForge 1.0, there are a number of other features that users have come to rely on that will be added shortly. For more information, please take a look at the MailForge Roadmap.

Version 2.0.1 makes the following improvements:

  • Added ability to change default order of emails: Ascending vs Descending (Preferences > Mailbox Display)
  • Emails now import in the correct order
  • Fixed bug that could cause some messages to be imported with the date set as 12/31/00
  • Fixed bug that could cause Queued emails to be blank
  • Fixed POP3 partial download bug (when emails exceeded preset download size)
  • Fixed bug when Replying/Forwarding/Redirecting from Search results
  • Fixed hang on manual filtering
  • Fixed bug that could cause some HTML emails to display blank
  • Improved readability of email listbox text when selected

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
