Comments on EverDesk Google Edition

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

I got this for several reasons, one to do a piece on it on my magazine. However, within one day this had crashed and refuses to open now.

It is a shame too as it looked very promising but as I only got one days use out of it I am NOT impressed.

#81, Fubar: I MADE you do nothing... calm down! I see that apart from the inital buzz of a few plus votes I now have just several negative votes, are the votes being manipulated? is the world against me? no of course not, not in any significant way. GAOTD reportadly has multiple thousands of visitors daily most do not or cannot interact on the voting or commenting sometimes they do... when they do the emotionaly sensitive feel either rewarded and liked or castigated and persicuted... by the post voting. It is brave for those souls to even poke their heads out of their shells.

If you try and resend the raw URL that registers a vote for a post from the same IP more than once the second and subsiquent attempt reports an error and no vote is actually registered even if you send the oposite vote to the first. My challenge to anyone that claims same IP vote manipulation is possible was to down vote my post 100,000 times over a sensible period of time and I did mean so the web page displayed -100,000 thumbs down over all not -11 thumbs down over all. If you would have to spend money to manipulate by more than a few and that after the offer day is in any way more difficult, sugests you are just using the webpage itself to send the votes rather than a simple little scriptlet and using all your currently available public IP numbers plus a few free http/socks proxies... maybe even Tor to get more apparent public IP's so it looks like I was right. Under the IPv4 scheme there is no significant voter manipulation on a daily basis. With multiple thousands of daily vistors and votes only ever going into the hundreds most simply don't interact with the voting system even when things go belly up on an offering or large numbers come to GAOTD site by way of ISP proxy servers preventing them from having their votes registered once one user on their proxy has voted!

#80, TK, I'm highly annoyed that you made me waste my time. I used to think that you were smart. The votes are so obviously being manipulated on a regular basis (for over a year), I think that anyone who can't tell is just dumb. When Consuella claimed the same thing, I down-voted her close to a hundred times. I could automate the process, but I don't have the best tools to do that. Since the giveaway is over, I manipulated numerous posts throughout by about 15 votes. It takes far more time to mess with the votes after rather during the giveaway. I would have to spend money to manipulate the votes by much more than a hundred, which I'm not at all willing to do. There are people who can manipulate them by close to a thousand, and still many people here are too dumb to tell that they're being manipulated. Since you're on the "outside", I told you exactly what to watch for. I changed your vote from a +4 to a -11. Since the vote manipulator is likely to change it, I captured an image of the entire webpage, but my photo host is only returning a very small version, even though it has the entire image. Maybe I have to pay them, which I don't want to do.

In the first place, the voting is so frequently insane that it's really obvious. Further, the numbers are far higher than one would expect. The vote manipulator has a particular obsession with my votes. They started out by keeping them downvoted by only a modest amount. This was still obvious to me, since I realized that the votes were generally positive until the manipulator became active. After a time, they quit trying to conceal their activity. They particularly like to swap my positive votes with negative votes from a negative post about me or my comments. Now, they do that, and run the numbers way up. They have no life and no job, they sit around all day manually messing with the GOTD voting. I absolutely proved their existence on a holiday when almost no one was voting. They kept downvoting my comments, and I kept voting them back up. Then they tried downvoting as fast as I was voting them back up. Remember, there was almost no other voting activity. I sped up, they sped up. I'm better at this sort of thing than they are, so by going very fast I was able to beat them. What they don't realize is that my PC takes screenshots of everything that I do, and it's basically a permanent record. I don't know if I started recording that long ago, but voting on almost any day in which I comment will show them manipulating my votes. Recent browser activity may not be being recorded, my video card fried and the Intel embedded video drivers don't appear to allow IE9 images to be captured on Win7. I have another card, but I was going to swap out components when I reinstall or upgrade Windows.

I won't hire people who aren't using at least Win7, who do have Microsoft certification, and now I'm going to add who don't use Google. Someone accused me of being a Microsoft-lover, which I've never been. I only defend Microsoft from unwarranted remarks, I'll be happy when they disappear. Microsoft qualifies as evil in any sense of the word, which I've covered before and aren't going to do here. All of you will pay any amount of money to Microsoft and Apple, but you won't pay for anyone else's software. Microsoft massively wastes my time, Google saves me time. Microsoft costs me a lot of money, Google saves me money. The "privacy" nuts are just that. Nuts. I'll bet that they're the very people who keep the tabloids and the paparazzi in business, thinking that they have the right to invade everyone else's privacy. Unless you're using encrypted data, there is no privacy on the Internet. Google does more than just about anyone to ensure your privacy. Web searches are secure. Gmail is secure. End-to-end Gmail use is secure. I asked them to make patent searches secure, and they've moved them to the secure general search page. I willing give up my privacy--to machines. Google uses this information to provide and improve their services, and to provide ads which makes most of those services freely available to me. People who think that other people are reading this information or that Google is selling it are paranoid and irrational.

For those in the US, your ISP logs everything. Most large corporations and telecoms bow to government pressure to provide access to data, and of course they have to if by court order. There are endless massive databases far more invasive than Google. Just about everything about you and everything that you do is recorded someplace from birth. Your medical records, school records, job history and salaries, rent and housing history, tax data, utility payments, marital status, etc. Credit providers of all types, including banks and all credit card issuers. Retailers. Insurance companies. Medical service providers. On and on. There are massive databases that collect this data. Credit data is kept in fortified underground bunkers that you couldn't dent with a nuclear bomb. Most of this data, particularly credit, insurance, and medical data, is used to screw you. Google, on the other hand, uses its data for good. I don't care that the vote manipulator has it in for me, but it makes me angry that they want all of you to be as ignorant as they are, and it makes me angrier still that GOTD participates in this by having a voting system that allows them to do so. As for hackers, they attack everything that they can.

To the vote manipulator, when your death day comes and you look back on your life, you can take pride in the fact that your entire life was a complete waste, that you accomplished nothing and contributed nothing, that you did your best to keep everyone else as stupid and ignorant as you are.

#66 Fubar: There is no vote manipulator at work on your post with a moderate number of negative votes, you happened to post something a moderate number of people felt was google shill like and that earned you some down votes, get over it, stop crying vote manipulation when GAOTD site wont even allow TWO or more votes from that same family shared public IP. If vote mainpulation beyond use of different socks or http proxies or dynamic IP assignment then your would see thousands of votes down or up as appropriate but we don't. Your comment was just mildly unpopular that is all, no big deal.

Of course you are free to prove me wrong regardiong vote manipulation without use of multiple unique public IP's and give this post 100,000 down or up votes if you wish but don't do it in a burst or you might break the back-end database and webserver.

I believe Google originaly had a motto of "Don't be evil" that is only being complied with by the current Google because they redefined the word "evil" to not include "the love of money" in its root definition.

Remember when they engineered backdoor access to their US servers for the US inteligence agencies and left it so unprotected that Chinese criminal hackers were able to compromise the accounts on those servers?

Downloaded and installed with no problems on Win7 64bit. I'm in a super time crunch, so didn't really have time to check much out, but it seemed to import my gmail inbox okay, got some of my contacts, not quite sure if it got them all, got calendar and GoogleDocs contents, mirrored folder tree of my hard disk contents.

This may take a little "fiddling with", but seems to be off to a decent start. Left-hand side of interface could use more space to list all the stuff you have options to see, will fiddle around with that to see if there's a "best" arrangement there, but whatever category (contacts, email, disk structure, etc.) you make larger will just make another category smaller, so not too much to be done about that.

A few interesting things from the End User License Agreement, I'm not gonna comment on them, but take a look and draw your own conclusions. Some are standard I guess (disable the program if you travel outside the US, due to the encryption available -- never encountered that before but assume that may be standard for programs that include encryption capabilities), and others worth noting:

Followed the directions exactly - what form pops up???? I DID NOT SEE A FORM. Then I look and it tells me that I have installed everdesk standard 28 days ago. Well I tried to but it went into never never land. I use Internet explorer and windows 7 - if it doesn't work for me then it probably isn't working correctly with a number of other people. The developer really must get this install thing down - 2 fails on 2 different computers. Why can't we just download, install, unlock like every other piece of software??? Well, this is another FAIL because the directions are just plain wrong. It doesn't matter what you claim your software does - if a person can't install and use it then they are just going to walk away. Everdesk - The install might work as you say on your computer, but it surely does not work on either of mine. Nothing works - from the "form that pops up" which simply doesn't...

"someone will find a way to break any and all encryption or safety locks you attempt to use."
In a world of limited resources, the battle is over time and cost. Defending is mathematically less expensive than breaching.

Almost everyone posting here about privacy is significantly wrong.

Not my cup of tea. But try it if you think it suits you. That is what this site is about

As for fubar, I used to be one of his biggest fans. He was the biggest Microsoft fan I had ever seen. Now he is talking down Microsoft in favor of Google.
I can hardly believe what I am reading. I would go so far to say that someone else is posting as fubar .

This statement "Google isn’t going to abuse your privacy, that would destroy the company."

and this " I always do my best to ensure that Google can track me, such as using the Google Toolbar"

WHAT ! Seriously, are you kidding me. I don't believe this is the real fubar. It makes no sense.

Following instructions, signed up, downloaded and installed with no problem, but I am really bummed out that there is no help available in the program, as it looks like it has a significant learning curve. I tried the help button, but nothing happened, and per GOTD I cannot get free technical support, so did anybody else have any success with help? Maybe I can Google EverDesk and find some tutorial to get over the hump.

Google is now so large it threatens democracy itself. It has made its fortune by running roughshod over peoples' privacy rights and it has done more to turn the web into a tool of the powerful than any other entity on the planet.

I want nothing to do with it, and recommend duckduckgo as a search engine.

You privacy people need to look at reality. Do you use a credit card? Whoops, everything you buy is tracked by the credit card company and of course you had to provide a lot of information to them just to get that card. Do you own a house? Whoops, guess what you had to give them to get a mortgage. Do you work? Whoops, guess what the government has their hands on?

I won't go on as I'm sure you get the idea. Suffice it to say, just living in the modern world means your privacy is compromised. So stop being paranoid. No matter what you do, you are being monitored and/or tracked. Whoops!!

HELL, YEAH --I want Google TO know EVERYTHING ABOUT ME. Maybe Ill get lucky and the big G will invent a microchip to insert under my skin that will let them know where I am and what I'm doing all the time. Hell, yeah -- they could buzz me when I am shopping and remind me to buy condoms, for example (based on the frequency of my amourous encounters. Oh, PLEASE, I would just LOVE to be cared about like that.

Privacy is like Liberty -- if you don't care about it --you don't deserve it.

All that said, I have the standard edition and I think it's a pretty good program but I would never pay 60 bucks for it, 20 would be more like it,

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Have installed the program and did the update but can not sign-in due to Error 1006-EP : IMAP Server not set.

Instructions indicated that it would handle IMAP or POP3, so is this message indicating that I need to change my email account to IMAP?

Foobar, you need to get a grip. Why you're so adamant about defending the virtues of google is a bit scary. Some of us just don't wanna be marketable digits for google, that's all.

Sure, i used it for years, and appreciated it, but now there are a lot more alternatives, so i just hop from one to another, like a moving target. It certainly isn't hurting them. I know. It's all about the money. If they wanna play marketing strategies with my info, then i'll do the same.

Don't take it personally. It's all about choices. Some of us really don't like to be anything like a digi-bot. We resist.

Todays giveaway seems pretty good. Although I personally don't have at lot of use for this type of thing. There is nothing anyone can hide or keep private if someone really wants to know what you're up to. More than likely the endless lists of freebies people post are found with Google. I can find those myself, quite a few are crap. There is nothing wrong with Google doing what they do. How many of you whiners out there have FaceBook accounts? Look what they do with your personal stuff. It is really sounding like Tin Foil Hat time again. I though we were supposed to comment on the software given away HERE...TODAY.

I respond to the comments, not the votes, which GOTD still needs to get rid of. They still allow the insane vote manipulator to mess with GOTD most days. This person doesn't even attempt to conceal their activity. You can watch the voting go from normal to insane within a very short time. The community simply doesn't vote that much, especially on big US holidays during the day. It's really obvious if you watch the early voting and suddenly there's a massive flip in the vote totals, the community isn't that active, and if there are normal voting flips, they tend to be small. Based on the comments, not the votes, I find it bizarre that some people, apparently mostly European, see US corporations as evil government entities. Google is an ad machine, they make no attempt to conceal that, it's their business model and it works well. They don't collect data on you and then sell it, that would be corporate suicide. As for taxes, many US corporations, especially Microsoft and HP, play games with US tax laws to keep from paying them. Unusually, HP is even more egregious than Microsoft. SoftwareBabe, you sound like one of those UFO nuts, "The truth is out there!" As with other alternative search engines, ixquick.com yields pathetic results compared to Google. Don't forget, Microsoft got caught using the Bing (Bing Is Not Google) toolbar to directly steal Google search results in an attempt to convince Google users that Bing was just as good. The issue about tracking is simple. Google needs it to deliver the best search results and targeted ads. Microsoft and others want to get rid of tracking specifically to hurt Google, they aren't doing it for your benefit.

everdesk Google Edition v5.1.1

Instructions are in the download file, need to be made separate before doing anything, otherwise why even put in the instructions as you'll be doing almost all the steps before they let you download the zip file. Yes I see it now on comments, should be in the main section up top.

Initial install, no splash screen but the program wouldn't minimize in effect covering up the license activation screen I had to drag the program screen out of the way to see the activate screen

2nd start up loaded up very quickly with short duration splash screen.

Subsequent starts takes a long time to load, in the meantime the splash screen is annoyingly covering up the screen to make it very difficult to do anything else. Need setting to disable splash screen.

Any information or material submitted or sent to EverEZ will be deemed not to be confidential or secret. Seems like a privacy issue.

Privacy policy doesn't seem to be strong enough to protect users. I would like to see an opt out or an opt in option.

Things that don't work
not intuitive, example in order to make a new group in contacts you need to right click on an existing group instead of the main contacts heading, after creating 2 groups it would allow you to click on the main contacts heading to create another group.

Need to activate more than once, happened a few times, after the first activation it still works but activation screen did pop up afterwards a few times.

Things I like
I like the encryption keys
Pictures of contacts
Ability to change font size (many programs now rely on windows default font size and it really messes up the font size, both as default and when you change the font size)
Ability to update (or I hope so, most GOTD programs will break on updates)
Works with regular Google edition v5.1.1, which I downloaded and installed first.
Seems to be linked to you and not your computer for the one computer use. (have installed multiple times on different VM
Ability to register directly with the vender as this seems gives me the ability to reinstall/change computers while still maintaining the ability to use the program (don't know if this will work but it seems like it would based on registration procedure.)

Things I'd like to see changed.
Password protected
More boxes for ph#, ie 3rd business phone, 2nd fax, additional email, etc.
Birthday year, nice to have reminder for birthday, however it's just as important to have year.
Need data box input for additional info such as spouse, children, etc.
Start with settings or start with save location instead of mail configurations, I keep my data in a specific location so I had to search settings to input this save location.
Localized help files or downloadable help files.
Downloadable holiday schedules.

I used Time and Chaos 5x/6x for a long time then on XP mode, now I use Time and Chaos 8 freeware on Windows 7, the interface looks very similar so it's easy for me to use. There are some really good features and some lacking compared to T&C.

I'll need a few more days to test this out in real life, thanks for the opportunity.

I'm sorry, the whole installation procedure was a real hassle and annoyed me to no end. Maybe this was the best GOTD and EverEZ could do but seriously...

Ok, in the end I had EverDesk installed and registered on Win 7.

One of it's main feature seems to be the Gmail integration and I quit Gmail years ago. Main reason wasn't really privacy but all the completely useless services Google was churning out at the time (Buzz, Wave etc.). Atleast once a month something was added to your account that just turned out being a waste of time. Google can develop all they want (and they do come up with some cool stuff) but my email account isn't a playground for developers to test their wild ideas.
As far as privacy goes, there is the Ghostery plugin for all browsers. IE9 even has tracker blocking built in. And there are of course proxies and VPN's and well... Google it :)

Back to EverDesk. I have no use for their Gmail support. However, their patented way of storing emails and attachments as actual files in seperate folders locally is brilliant! Seriously, it's the defining feature that sets it apart from any other email client. The aforementioned Thunderbird, eM Client, Eudora OSE or DreamMail, none have this capability.
So thumbs up from me for bringing something truly innovative to the table. Many thanks GOTD and EverEZ!

@Fubar: That may be true about iOS but at twice the price all companies I know of opted for the cheaper non-Apple smartphones. Those work just dandy because, unlike iOS most of the time, they are compatible with Microsoft desktops (Linux is mainly servers), install their own compatible drivers and can be synched with one click... Apple desktops used to be big players in the graphics/music industry but they're losing footing there too.

And I do remember a time before Google search. Times were bad, but everytime I use Google atleast half the results still only confirm the coldness of this Eternal September. So yea, times really haven't changed that much...

It's been said time and time again....if you put something out on the internet it's open to everyone. Somewhere someone will find a way to break any and all encryption or safety locks you attempt to use. Whether it be Google, a countries Government, or simply just some hacker, etc. Nothing on the internet is private.

Some are worse than others in taking that information and using it. We've all seen and heard about it happening. Search engines - such as Google, Yahoo, Social Sites - such as Facebook, MySpace, Google+, Chat and Messaging apps - YIM, MSN, AIM -- are just SOME examples. It's up to each person to decide to use or not use these services.

So it boils down to this: If you don't want something private, spread to others, seen, heard, viewed, or found out... DON'T PUT IT ON THE INTERNET IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM!

Today's offer may or may not be good. May or may not be worth the hassle that is needed to get: Even GOTD had to change their way of offering for this particular offer to appease the company. To me, it just showed that the company wants and forces it's users to give them even more private information than what is really necessary.


Because you can only use it on one (1) machine it's basically worthless. Most people use multiple ways to get their emails, calenders, etc. such as Desktops, laptops, phones everyday.

Just my opinion but I'll pass on this one today. I refuse to jump through 50 hoops, give my information for multiple things, and then have to fight a program to work just to view my emails, calender, etc.

@Stu Berg #24.
I was excited after reading about eM Client, so I downloaded and installed to give it a whirl.

There's no way to change the installation drive/path.
*That* is an instant deal breaker regardless how good an app is.

Their support forum reflects that feeling.
I un-installed immediately.

Well, I thought I was paranoid but guess I'm not alone. The only thing between my info and somebody interested enough is $29.95 on any search website. I am sick of all the advertising but that's capitalism.I installed this program on Win7/64 without a hitch, imported a gmail account smoothly with little adjustment, opened to a beautiful layout with nice little touches like an 'eye' to allow previews and a 'move' box. So far my only criticism is not enough font choices. I could wish (don't laugh) that it would sync with my old Palm LifeDrive, since getting used to a cell phone PDA is a problem for me, but guess those days are gone. Thanks GOTD, and happy Turkey day!

Why don't you just post some program from the feds and cut out the middle man. If Uncle Sam wants unlimited info on everything I do and say, they can do what they do to everyone else they wonder about. They can kick my door in and take my computer and hard drives. There may be one or two fewer walking out the door though. You disappoint me with this.

Ditto issue with http://www.everdesk.com/

"We're sorry, but something went wrong.

We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly."

Where are the developers? And do they really want to give this away? Or is it just me?

OK...I can't take it anymore! GAOTD is a good website. It is up to an individual whether they choose to download and try a given product. Their are two types of GAOTD users and posters that drive me nuts! First are those who vote "NO" every time, without ever trying the product. These are a digital version of "haters" I guess. The second group is those who post their version of the "I don't know why anyone would try this download. X,Y, and Z are way better products and are always free" drivel. And I am sure most of these never even try the current GAOTD download. They just feel a need to act all-knowing and superior! Get a life folks!

After having read all the posts, I noticed that like me many others experienced different kind of problems, be it when registering or using the program... or both.
Unfortunately, I noticed also that the publisher of this software did not address any of those suggesting a solution or providing any kind of feedback.
To that's is enough for not even considering to try this program.

About the usage of Google and privacy issues.
There is NO privacy when the US Govt / FBI wants the details of your emails.

CIA Director David Petraeus and his mistress Paula Broadwell relied on the “draft folder” of a shared Google Gmail account to exchange messages between the two over a two-year period.

We all know what happened.
Who cares? I am not a general and I do not have a mistress.

I like Google and related services like GMail, Google Maps, Google Earth very much. All provided FOC. Can't thank Google enough.

If you are a Brit - don't forget you shouldn't need this product as you are not supposed to be using Google products any longer as we have agreed to ban them and use alternatives because Google refuse to pay the proper (moral) level of UK taxes thus shifting the burden of taxation onto "ordinary working folk".

So much for Google "doing the world a service" or "being honest" eh?

By the way - for the uninitiated - apparently Amazon and Starbucks are two other megaliths to avoid for the same reason.

Does this work with 64 bit Windows 7?

It hung up on install. I forced closed it.
It is hung again on reopen.

#30, Giovanni--"And it’s rumoured that Big G was founded by CIA at beginning: did you know that?"
Really? A "rumour" ("rumor" in the US, we're saving ink) is enough to get your full faith and support for a statement? It's rumored that everybody should send me $1 (or their country equivalent) just because.

@Giovanni: unfortunately DreamMail has no IMAP feature, so it's a piece of crap.

But EverDesk is much more crappy:
- I've got 4 mails "EverDesk account registration (Action required)"?!
- it has doubled my calendar entries! F**k!!!

Dear GOTD: please do a better selection of software... or we'll stop to like u :P

Addendum to #29...............

Opened Everdesk again, all emails were there, however selecting any email, there was no preview, GREAT. Obviously it's useless to me.

Note, Everdesk can only be installed on one PC.

YOU are another sheeple that has swallowed the kool-aid and trust everything on the Internet, just like that girl in the TV ad for Allstate who claims that because she gets her info from the Internet then IT MUST BE TRUE, OR because some politician tells you something, IT MUST BE TRUE, or because Google seems to be doing the world a SERVICE, then they must be HONEST. ....don't think so. There is way too much data out there that Google can make money off of AT OUR EXPENSE and if you can't figure out the "OUR EXPENSE" part, then you are delusional. NO GOOGLE! And, we'll stay in our caves thank you. At least WE KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THEM. Just wait...YOU WILL SEE WHAT IS COMING..............

Google? Are you serious? Very few people I know use any google products because of their ability to track every single thing you do, storing that data and selling it to the highest bidder.
I use ixquick.com to search and other alternatives, BUT NEVER GOOGLE FOR ANYTHING.

WHY is there not a "Not Interested" box on the GOTD poll? The way it's set up now, if someone is simply not interested, they tend to check the thumbs down option, heavily skewing the poll results toward the negative.

You people seriously need to grow up and get an education. Oooh, my privacy, big bad government, evil corporations.... Here's the deal. Government security agencies around the world monitor all of your communications. Before 9/11, it was illegal for the NSA to spy on US citizens. So they simply made a deal with the Canadian security agency. They spied on our citizens for us, we spied on their citizens for them. After 9/11, the NSA was allowed to spy on US citizens. All communications of all types (re-read that) went through NSA computers which looked for suspicious terms. Suspect communications were pulled out for analysis by human operators. Research it if you don't believe me. Privacy is a myth around the world. Sufficient encryption may help for now, but who knows? If the NSA can break strong encryption, they aren't going to tell you, and as soon as quantum computers become available (now estimated at 5-10 years), all non-quantum encryption will be useless.

The government has turned to Google for help at various times, like after Katrina. I always do my best to ensure that Google can track me, such as using the Google Toolbar or Chrome. It's a little creepy at first, but incredibly useful. Google needs to stay in business and sends me useful targeted ads instead of drivel. Their search suggestions and YouTube suggestions are tailored specifically to me. Their web history is far better than IE's. Clearly, you don't remember what web search was like before Google. Google is far less evil than Microsoft.

It's time for you to grow up and realize the true nature of the world.

#32, BenAsp, iOS has better business features than either Google or Microsoft. Not sure about Apple's desktop OSes, but I've certainly worked at companies that had Apple computers (alongside PCs).

Can both versions of EverDesk co-exist on a pc? In other words, is it necessary to uninstall the previous version in order to install this one?

Reply   |   Comment by Justine  –  11 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)


I do not need this.

Calendar? Plenty of free ones. Do you really need multiple calendars? Are you so busy and multi-tasking?
Email client? Already have Outlook.
Contact address book? What's your mobile phone address book for? Anyway, mine synchronises with Outlook Contacts. Plenty of freeware address books on the Internet if you want that.

Yes DREAM MAIL is from China: so what? Even the award-winning "Haozip" is chinese but despite that it's the best FREE file archive compression tool on the market right now.

On Softpedia it seems that most users agree with me about Dream Mail (it's also been awarded as SOFTPEDIA EDITOR PICK):


Best of all it's not only FREE but it may be also PORTABLE, so NO installation needed: honestly you can't ask more!

Works on only one computer, not syncing via the cloud on any number of computers ... so in order to use this for my email et cetera, I'd have to use my little field portable all the time even though I have humongous tower computers at my office that I usually sit at, but can no longer do my email there if I expect to also coordinate that same email st cetera when I am in the field using my little portable?

What exactly are they giving away, only the left shoe from a pair?

Tried to install both using my Gmail account and also by registering with Everdesk and opening an account there. Neither method worked. I cannot see my Gmail messages or my Gmail contacts. I have uninstalled the program and will not try it again. I big thumbs down on this software.
