The installation is what we consider standard these days. You can put the program files any where you want and in whatever program group.

Okay lets one thing straight right away. This is a free version. It does have limitations. One of them is that only supports 500 email addresses per mailing list. Another is it does not support multithread connections.

The first problem I had is that when I opened the program it couldn't find the Help file. I imagine the reason it couldn't find it is that it doesn't exist.

I tested it out with a small list of 60 addresses. It took about 5 minutes for it to run through the list.

It said that only 12 out of the 60 were valid. This surprised me as I knew that more than this were valid. So I added another 10 email addresses to the list that I knew were valid and working. It said all but one were bad.

In conclusion. The program doesn't do what it is supposed to do, there is the matter of the missing Help file and it is thinly disguised pimp (nag screens on open and close) for a version that starts at $69. I can't recommend it.
