The installation of Aid4Mail is easy and intuitive you can place the program files where you want them. It also is polite enough to ask whether you want Desktop and Quick Launch icons.

Well the people at Fookes Software have done it again! They have produced a new program that is completely different from anything on the market and something that will fulfill a need of many users.

Aid4Mail is a program that will do stuff for your email that you thought would never be possible. With it you can export your email, archive it, and convert it into formats so that it can be imported into other programs. It can even export the read and unread status of email. So of course one of the uses can be to convert from one email program to another. You can export all of your attachments too.

With it you can export mail details to tab-delimited file for import into a database.
