Mail clients provide you with quick access to your email messages, but in many cases, you have to make a series of complex configurations first. Also, certain clients tend to be overcomplicated, due to their large number of features, which you may never use. Becky! Internet Mail provides a simple and efficient solution for reading and managing your email messages. The application doesn't feature shiny graphics and animations or other visually pleasing components, but it gets the job done when it comes to retrieving and managing email.
The software is free to try for 30 days, but without any functionality restrictions. It can be installed in under a minute, without any effort. Also, there are no special requirements you have to meet and you won't notice any significant impact on your computer's performance. Becky! Internet Mail was originally created in '96, so you can use it on almost any Windows version, from the retired Win 95 to the new Win 8.
At a first glance, the user interface is not very impressive. Its plain icons and text make it look a bit old, but if you take a few minutes to experiment with the software's options, you will notice that its entire functionality is solid. Configuring an email account is quite easy, especially because Becky! Internet Mail comes with template settings for popular mail services, like Yahoo, Google or others. The software may not have a modern look, but it works without a hitch and you will discover many useful features.
The user interface is divided into three columns, on which you can find your mail folders, emails and their contents. Messages can be retrieved from a mail account right away, just by clicking one button, located on a toolbar. New folders can be created in each mail box and you can move one or more messages between folders by simply clicking and dragging.
When composing messages, you can insert headers and predefined signatures, specify the sender and a "reply to" address separately and much more. Besides attaching files from local folders, you can also record yourself with a microphone and attach the recording to your message. Another useful feature is the possibility of setting up automated tasks for each message. Depending on your settings, the program will watch for a reply, bookmark items and much more.
Despite its outdated appearance, Becky! Internet Mail's functionality is solid. It works fast, without asking for too much user input. The software provides many useful features, which are quite easy to use.
The user interface could use a modern appearance. If you wish to retrieve and manage your emails on the fly, then Becky! Internet Mail is definitely worth trying.
