GAOTD provided a Registration Key, so I entered that in an attempt to register and it said: "Invalid Serial Number".

Can't uninstall fast enough. But the name is burnt into my memory as a "NO WAY EVER TRY AGAIN".

Currently using Listwire, guess I stick with that.

Installed and tested OK so far, but there is one nagging little bug that was also present in version 4.6, namely that when starting from the All Programs List in 64-bit Windows 7 it goes to what should have been a temporary file and asks do I want to install it! Since it is already installed, I clicked NO and fortunately it went on to start the program. Although this is not a serious flaw, it is disappointing that KC Software hasn't fixed this problem and makes me worry a little bit. Hopefully there won't any major Uh-Ohs when it is in full operation.

None of the true evaluations of the K-LM program are receiving any interest at least interest is not being reflected in positive votes on the comments.

Today's download works, has a good user interface and is easy to set up, and a few people have commented on how to use the program for constructive purposes - not spam.

It is a shame that very few comments reflect the quality of the K-LM program itself. We know that the votes at the top of the page are bogus and do not reflect user's experience with the program. It is easy enough to ignore the votes at the top of the page and encourage people that have used the program and are reporting on it to continue to give program details. Intelligent questions should be welcomed as well. To get a negative vote all that must occur is that the comment includes a question.

The GOTD rules state that you can not ask questions of the program's technical support people. Other than the GOTD website, where can someone ask a legitimate question? Plenty of questions asked here are garbage but there are plenty of other questions that bring up important and useful points.

I have rather extensive experience using two prior versions of the K-LM program and I have used today's GOTD downloaded program to send out a requested newsletter.

I have commented on what I believe are some useful features of this and similar programs. We can accept the fact that if questions are not asked on this website then there is really no place to ask the question and stay within the GOTD rules. And it goes on. I ignore votes that simply reflect the usefulness of a program for a particular user.

It is not difficult to look at a program and make a snap decision of whether there will be many GOTD users that have interest in or disdain the program or some personal reason.

Instead of trying to change the behavior of people voting on this page why not move program comments to a place in the forums?

IMHO, by not downloading or by commenting here, you have already signaled GAOTD that you don't like/need this software. By using the voting system to rate the offer, rather than the performance of the software, you are at the least, skewing the voting results and at worst, you are in effect, voting twice!

I've been testing the SendBlaster 3 beta myself. It's got personalized attachments and some other goodies. You can check it out for yourself - http://download.sendblaster.com/sendblaster3019beta.rar

Request for clarification from the GAOTD Site’s Admin team…

Fingerlakes Dave (comment #8), Biff (#18) and Raradra (#60) all mention the “strictly personal usage” stipulation in your Terms and Conditions blurb, which is added, I presume, automatically under all giveaways.

However, in the description of the offer, it clearly states: “With K-ML you can very easily manage large lists of contacts or CUSTOMERS and send them customized messages that fits their profile.” I don’t have any doubts that this software was developed with the business owner in mind. The occasional personal use would be the exception and not the rule.

Could anyone from your team post in the Comments some kind of clarification and confirm that we are indeed allowed to build opt-in forms to solicit email addresses from visitors to our sites and turn them into customers, so that eventually we can send them pretty HTML email messages, with attachments, for business purposes? Otherwise, why would the software allow us to “generate K-ML enabled Web pages” (option under the Web Site tab) if we could NOT use them for capturing contact data?

Sorry to bother your lawyers so late in the day but someone missed the obvious and now a perfectly good software will be sitting on HDs around the globe, gathering digital dust for no reason.

THANKS in advance for looking into this. I’m sure it’s just a misunderstanding.

PS: I also checked previous giveaways and that condition applies to all of them. That’s why I assume that it’s a pre-built element of your page template structure. Everything I’ve installed so far happened to fit my non-business needs and HAS been strictly for personal use but then this offer came along, so I’m curious – how are you prepared to enforce the rule for let’s say a digital manipulation type software, used by a graphic artist to clean up images, which will be delivered against payment to a business client? Doesn’t that mean that the user has violated your conditions but you have no way to prevent it? So why have the #3 condition at all? Either you should remove it altogether or make that part of the page template configurable, so you could exclude it, when you post software, used mostly for business purposes. Otherwise, some people might worry that they are breaking your rules and frankly, we like you too much. We don’t want to violate your wishes (I bet, I speak for Amigarita, #53 and Sally, #57). Looking forward to your reply!

@ Wonder (#17) – Missing Company Info with Address and Phone Number
Hey Wonder, this is the 21st century so I’m wondering (pun intended) why you feel like you are being intentionally kept in the dark? If a company wants to cover its tracks, they have to do a lot more than just NOT list their info on the Contact Page. Just a simple look-up on WhoIs.com produces ALL of their data, short of a map, I might add: http://my.jetscreenshot.com/20413/20130713-rawj-50kb.jpg

It’s a French company with a clearly listed contact person, address, valid area code phone number and they have kept this web site name registered since Feb 2004. In Internet years, they are practically dinosaurs.

It doesn’t mean they are any good at programming but it also doesn’t make sense to suspect them of hackery, thievery, unprofessionalism or any other random scam. And if they WERE trying to remain obscure, they sure are doing a lousy job. No need to involve the authorities in tracking them down. Turns out they keep their shop registered right in the middle of the market square.

@ Ben (currently # 11) & @ Alirut (#19) – “registration not working”

I got the same error message but I’m pretty sure it WASN’T the reg key but the NAME we were supplying. I first entered my last name and then copied and pasted the reg key exactly as it was written in the readme.txt file. Promptly got the error message. I was almost at the end of my email to their Support dept (“no-tech-support-limitation-of-the-giveaway” be damned!!!) to ask them basically “what’s up with the fake reg key” when I re-read the instructions. Apparently, the software DOESN’T want MY name (Step 2 in the screenshot) but the name GiveawayOfTheDay (Step 3): http://my.jetscreenshot.com/20413/20130713-b9ef-62kb.jpg

Moral of the story… Thanks for posting your comment here about the snag. Obviously you are not the only one who assumed the company wanted YOUR data. But hopefully now, you can re-install and enjoy the full app.

As for Marty (#29) and his Q.1 & 2: their web site demo with only 30 emails vs. this offering… I’m sure that the reg key they are giving away today is the secret sauce that dispenses with the 30 emails limitation. RE Q.3 (comparison to Aweber) -– Aweber charges monthly for the privilege to use a much bigger palette of sign-up forms and pretty designs. K-ML seems very basic but then again, they charge only one-time $50 ($35 if you use the 30% discount on http://www.bitsdujour.com/vendor/kc-softwares) and for those, who need to use an email manager, that price is actually insanely cheap in the long run.

***Tip about using the discount – if you are located in Europe, the price automatically converts to Euros, so if you want to side-step the loss from the FX (1 Euro ~ $1.30 means there is only $2 savings from the discount), just switch the currency to USD at the top-right corner of the payment page and you’ll be back in business at the normal, advertised price of US $34.99.

Software developers don't need a thumbs up or down after they have spent their time developing their product. Their sales will tell them whether it is popular with users. The rating system was designed to show what you thought of the program design, features, and in comparison with similar products you may be aware of. If you don't need or want the product....don't rate it.

@ #post 22:

If you're Ozzie's mate, then I feel sorry for Ozzie. You, ozziesmate, are not a user of today's software, nor is your thumbs-down rating of its performance of any use to anyone else: not the developer; not GAOTD; not anyone considering today's download offer. If and when GOATD offers a dictionary program, I'd recommend you grab it and mouse over to the 'U' section to find out what use / user / using / usage actually means.

Your mate Ozzie joins me in commending this tip to your attention in hope you find it, er, useful.

Jumped right on this, exactly what "I" need! Installed and registered easily on my Vista and both Windows 7 x64 Home Basic and Premium.

Currently website building and I'm a NOVICE bigtime. Found K-ML simple, easy to grasp and implement. (Might not have bells and whistles as other programs mentioned here, but I find it suits my needs perfectly.)

So far I see no reason not to purchase the full program regarding functionality, but will hold off since those REVIEWERS whose opinions I trust and depend upon seem to think it's a bit steep?

Thanks GAOTD and K-ML!

P.S. It's quite refreshing to see THIS software offered as I too grow weary of the seemingly endless video converters and photo tweaking softwares, if possible, could you maybe mix it up a little more? Thanks bunches, you ROCK GAOTD!!

HERE'S MY REVIEW OF THIS FREE GIVEAWAY:
It is very generic BUT simple to use. However, I do not see where you can import Thunderbird address books or other info other than the copy/past feature. Out of 5 stars, with 5 being the best, I would have to give this one a 3, as it does what it says, but lacks the features I am looking for. I think 1and1Mail, a 50-limited address address manager is much better than this one. THAT'S MY 5 CENTS.

As always, once you remove this software from your PC OR re-format your hard drive (best to IMAGE your drive before you re-format so you can keep your registration numbers intact), you will lose any GOTD softwares and their registration. Just sayin.....

Well after playing around with this program, I must say I was a little impressed with it. Love being able to insert pictures and that means you can create a stationary like atmosphere in your e-mail. However, just can't get the settings correct and not able to send it out like someone previously stated using gmail. I do not want to use my Verizon address settings so I will have to continue playing around with this I guess. Help is not helpful at all in this program. Not very user friendly either. Or maybe it is just me.....even though I had no problem with SendBlaster and gmail..@24 hope you are correct for the attachments in the upcoming newest free version!

Comment by Giovanni Despite its ridiculous and once again misleading USER RATING system, this GAOTD is a good program since it enables you to manage an unlimited number of subscribers and mailing lists, a feature which is not easy to find in almost any other FREE alternative out there.
So if you don’t need a tool like this just DO NOT RATE ==> DAMN!

So why do you include every alternate freebie you know of in YOUR rating? They have nothing to do with rating the GAOTD.

STAY ON TOPIC ====> DAMN!

I have and used K-ML version 6 and now I am using K-ML version 7, downloaded from another giveaway site, to let my wife's friends know of her progress since leaving the intensive care unit at a local hospital. The only thing I do not understand about the program is the version number of 4.6.

The people on the mailing list have all asked to be informed of my wife's progress. It certainly saves me a lot of telephone time talking to her friends every few days. I do not use the program for spam and will discontinue its use until a similar occasion presents itself.

The user interface is extremely user friendly, the program can be set up rapidly, and I have had no problem with blockage of my email.

Using the K-ML program is much faster than entering in individual addresses and typing "BCC" before each address.

I have KML version 4.7.431 . I would appreciate if anyone can post what the difference is with this offering of version 4.8

Tel list lite always wants to instal, when I open this prog, dont know why, I click cancel and KML opens up .

The version I have has no pretty skin, just black and white and no help file what so ever . Whilst everything is easy when you know how , not everyone knows there SMPT server address or the port .

Set up options such as Enable speed limit , enable smpt logging , who knows how many emails before your service provider kicks up ?

It would be nice if they included a default average user setting or even better a help file , faq, or a link, with pics show each stage how to set up, and not presume that everyone is a clairvoyant !

I would suggest , even have a button to send a message to the developer how to improve the prog .

Don't assume everyone uses software like this for spamming! We use Mailchimp currently to send out newsletters, technical bulletins and update notices to our customers who have software support contracts with us. For support purposes we need to track who has seen which notices, and who clicked through to install the updates. The paid service of Mailchimp helps with this, and helps us format a nice, professional-looking html-format message. I will try today's giveaway to see if it could be a viable alternative alternative, although I see that the giveaway version is for personal use only.

To all who think that if you vote but do not try the software is wrong.
I disagree, any vote up or down gives the developer an idea if such software is needed or not to the wide audience at large.
Therefore, the developer might stop throwing good money after not needed software or will scale down or will include or exclude parts that make the software undesirable or desirable.
It is your right to vote up or down even if you do not try the software first.
On the other hand if GAOTD makes is mandatory to download and then try it first before voting is another matter. For now you have no restrictions to express your view.

I am looking for a new email client that will handle Yahoo and AOL/AIM email and I have tried just about every freebie out there for email including a small handful of shareware (even paid for a few past trial). I belong to a handful of graphic heavy email groups and newsletters as people share graphics that can be as heavy as 15 mb. Since I am still on archaic dial up (one free service still exists if you're in California) and as a professional writer, I am looking for something that can be quick when using text email as well as capable when handling the heavy weight email. Is this a type of email client or is it more like a plug in for one you already have? I'll check back periodically today for an answer :) Thanks GOTD.

@'Bob'(#2), Sorry, man, but get over it. This kind of thing has been going on and will continue to go on. Complaining about it will do nothing, not even make you feel any better.

Anyway, tried it, found it doesn't support TLS, dumped it. If you don't know what TLS is, you probably don't need to worry about it. The 1996-style interface doesn't help it either. Other than that, it's fairly decent software.

However, there is nothing about this particular software that makes it worth 50 bucks! No way! There are free alternatives far more feature-rich than this (GroupMail and EasyMail come to mind).

I am personally against such mailing softwares as they make it easy for people to spam. I checked out the site for this software and even though the site appears green when you visit it if you go to wot's page to check the number of negative comments make you wonder. I don't trust the green or red of wot much, but I do trust multiple negative comments.

Thanks for the giveaway but I do have a couple of questions and a comment or two.

Questions:

1. Is this free giveaway the same as the free giveaway that you will find on their website?

2. if it is different, how is it different and how is it different from the paid application? i.e. the free version on the website limits the number of emails that can be sent to 30 - does this limit the user to 30?

3. How is this program similar or different from AWeber or other membership mailing programs?

To all of you that vote negative only because you have no use for the program:

Your negative vote for that reason only goes to show how stupid and ill willed people like you are. You care nothing about trying to critic the program in a manner that will help the developer improve the product. Remember, that's why this site was created. In exchange for the free product the users would evaluate it and share their findings. Everybody wins. Oh, but not you. Your only concern is about you. If everybody that uses this site begins to act like you, soon people like you will drive developers away from this site and people that have worked hard to make this site the success that it is will be left with nothing but people like you. AND it should be obvious people like you can't build anything - you can only destroy.

To the GAOTD monitors and developers:

Remove the voting for or against ability form the site. It's not being used for what it was intended anyway: it adds nothing beneficial to the conversation.

Since you're being paid to monitor the site - Monitor it. Make sure the comments refer to the technical aspects of the program and its uses. Help the product developer develop a better product.

And Finally to those that vote against a program only because they have no use for the application:

GO AWAY.

User ratings are for evaluating software programs. Whether or not you personally need to use the program or not is useless information. Put that on your Facebook page if you must.

Personally I would like to see less of some software categories too, but since GOTD has such a diverse group of visitors to their site they need to provide for all tastes.

Keep up the great work GOTD.

#19 ozziesmate ...For all the people complaining about negative (or positive) voting, it is a user vote, I am a user, and I don’t like/need it and don’t want this sort of software in the future so I vote negatively...

No. If you don't want it, you aren't a user. Why on earth would you vote on something you don't want? Just don't vote.

As constantly pointed out by Giovanni and others here, it skews the voting and therefore provides a misleading impression.
