As readers will know I thought the improved G-Lock EasyMail v1.5 was an excellent program but now they've gone and improved it yet again and brought out V 1.7 which means another review. That's OK it is still a pleasure to review good software.
Still easy to install and easy to set up and with a very nice GUI (Graphical User Interface), EasyMail is a send only e-mail client which has it's own SMTP server which means fast delivery, no more queuing on your ISP's server. Not only that, EasyMail gives you instant confirmation of delivery by checking the address before it sends, which eliminates the dreaded "Mail undeliverable" messages you can get several hours after the event. It can also get confirmation that your message has been read. One of the new features is a voice mail facility which has a wide range of compression formats for you to record in. The recording can be set to play automatically on opening of the mail or as an attachment.
The nattiest new feature for me is the auto zip facility. All you have to do is open the Zip attachment window, select the files you want to attach and as soon as you press "Send" EasyMail auto zips the attachments into one zip file so saving send and receive time.
Drag and Drop facilities include attachments, text files direct to the message body and you can Drag and Drop a message you want to reply to from Outlook Express. There is a "Stay on Top" button which makes this very easy. If for some reason you can't send direct to your destination ie.gov or .mil extensions there is also an ISP button allowing you to send the conventional route. All the usual features are there too. Insert signature, address book with alphabetical tabs, priority button etc.
The program also supports Socks4, Socks4A and Socks5 proxy protocols, so you can use it within your Local Area Network (LAN), too. EasyMail ensures faster, safer, and more easy-to-control mail sending, and thus it helps to save your time and money if you are paying for your line time. A really useful program that confirms every e-mail you send has been delivered instantly. It's a "must have" at a very reasonable price.
