Not all mail providers support POP3 and IMAP some only provide webmail interfaces and WEBDAV or MSExchange protocols. This company is naive if they think a POP3/IMAP client will access all of our mail in any mailboxes.
POP3 and IMAP are after all legacy protocols and some email providers charge for POP3 and IMAP access due to the potential for abuse with it and the higher cost of providing that service. With webmail the free email provider can force feed adverts to fund the service but not so with POP3 or IMAP mail delivery.

I downloaded and installed the program. I registered the professional version. I then added my gmail account imap server as imap.gmail.com and the port 993 and then entered the login and password I use many times, and that works every time. I selected "all" for the selection filter. I then selected the sat I then got an error message that said login/password is incorrect. So I reentered both. No joy.

So unless I get some useful information about how to use the program I'll uninstall it. It appwears that all I need to do is delete the folder that contains the exe.
It is too bad. It seemed like a useful program.

Installed fine. Sadly, however, it failed with error "Login/password are incorrect" despite being logged into Thunderbird at that same time with the same user name and password. No help available on the website. Sorry.

Issue when connecting to outlook/hotmail with POP3
-> Click [Search] , stuck at Status: Checking Server Type

Using IMAP, it does process & establish connection, but then errors with password error.

Does this application save also html content (such a jpeg, png and other images files???) or just text?

Adam, you'll find the answer in the description above and if you need it written more clearly you'll find further information on the main product page https://bytescout.com/products/enduser/misc/mailboxdownloader.html
not the cutdown business page linked to from the homepage for the business licensed version both of which have same functionality as far as I am aware.

After downloading and installing, I'm wanting to uninstall, but cannot find it on my computer. Does anybody know where it may have installed. I said to install into a certain folder, but I don't see it there. Cannot find it in the list for Ccleaner to uninstall. I don't know where to look, or how to look further.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Reply   |   Comment by Sunnie  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Sunnie, Are you sure you did install it? Because when you download, you receive MailboxDownloaderBusiness.... zip; when you open the zip, you see a readme.txt file with the key and a folder called Mailbox Downloader Business 1.8.0.0; you copy (or drag and drop this folder corresponding to a portable app and dll files) where you want; than, you open this folder and can launch the app and register.

PaulF, I'm pretty sure it's installed as I've registered it and it opens with my name. So, it must be somewhere on my computer, just NOT where I told it to go!

Any other suggestions? I don't think I've got enough knowledge to work this program and decided to uninstall it, but can't locate it to uninstall. Thanks

Sunnie,

download "Everything" at https://www.voidtools.com/downloads/ and install it. This free little program shows every file on your computer. Type in the searchbox the name of the program you're looking for and it shows the path where the program is installed.

Reply   |   Comment by dirkje  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Sunnie, The program does NOT "install"; rather, it is a "portable application" that is contained entirely within the folder into which you "un-zipped" it. To remove it from your computer, you can simply delete that folder and the files downloaded from GOTD. However, since it's not clogging up your system, you may want to keep it, just in case you want to try it again in the future.

jmjsquared, The program is not 100% portable, as it also writes outside the folder into which you un-zipped it. If you delete only the folder, your computer will still contains traces of the program usage.

Try going to My PC, then to your C: drive, and then to Windows, then INetCache, and then IE. Look for 8KKT71OU, then the MailboxDownloaderBusiness file. That may help.

Sunnie, to uninstall it just delete the folder you extracted the original zip bundle into as everything resides in the

"Mailbox Downloader Business 1.8.0.0" sub folder where you started the program from. (The original Extract ALL process was the entirety of the installation)

How does this compare to Mailstore ?

rww, How about you do the homework instead of us, and let us know? You mentioned mailstore, so you must already be familiar with it. Just look at Mailbox Downloader's website and let us know. We'll wait right here.

Hooper, it's a valid question, which they have the right to ask. Arguably, adding more to the discussion than idle posturing.

Reply   |   Comment by Johnny  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

rww,
- ByteScout Mailbox Downloader has filtering by keyword in subject/body/attachment. MailStore doesn't.
- ByteScout Mailbox Downloader does 1 thing: downloads the e-mails. No viewing, no archiving or exporting to different formats etc. See the screenshot at https://bytescout.com/products/enduser/misc/mailboxdownloader.html That's it, nothing else.
- ByteScout Mailbox Downloader is smaller: <1 MB extracted.

Reply   |   Comment by Anonymous  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

rww, dunno what does Mailstore do? This just lets you put in a single POP3 or IMAP mail server details and do some operations on the chosen accounts mail... NO ability to add mailbox profiles just manual entry of single mail box at a time. VERY basic. I'd guess Mailstore has far more features without ever looking at it simply because this is laughable. It's only saving grace is it claims to support TLS/SSL connections though I have not tried it and am about the delete the "portable" folder we are given.

unfortunately is not working for any mailbox as per description. only with pop servers

so the manufacturer statement is missleading: "Mailbox Downloader is a great tool that helps you save all your emails with attachments from any mailbox"

Reply   |   Comment by alexander  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

alexander, having just gone to Bytescout's website ... and looked at the free Personal version (I'm too old to be running a business!): there it says ...
1) You need to launch POP3 or IMAP in your mailbox.
2) Introduce the e-mail and password you usually use (for Gmail, passwords should be generated separately for privacy reasons )
3) Press the Search button.
The screenshot of the Personal (free) version shows you where to choose IMAP (which will be what you need if like me you use webmail rather than any mail application on your PCs).
I would therefore contend that it should cope with any mailbox (either IMAP or POP)

JW2, well you are right, but the first look at the software as advertised on this site is the primary information as well as first impression, Therefore what you say about going to their website to find out what should be written here is not really should not be an option.
It is like going to a car shop listening to all the BS of a salesman and after you drive out they tell you go to manufacturer site and see that the tires are not included

I cant get it to work either.
Its a stand-alone product, right?
I type email & password and click Search.
At bottom of program, it says "Status: Checking Server Type......"
Thats it, nothing happens.

I am not sure what the use of this when there are programs like thunderbird the can do this for free and can also send emails too.

Reply   |   Comment by Danielx64  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+28)

Danielx64, While Thunderbird (a mail application) can send emails and attach to mailboxes, it would be a fairly manual process to extract each email (plus attachments). You could (I think) drag each email out (well, you can in Outlook - unsure if Thunderbird does that) but if you've hundreds of emails, it could be time consuming.
Most businesses would have Exchange and thus Outlook which does this, but smaller businesses would probably use external applications like Hotmail or Mail. Useful for backup purposes, but I don't know what its that useful for.
The main annoyance with GMail is the inability to remove attachments from emails. You can save attachments, but not remove them from older emails.

Chris, I also use Mozilla's Thunderbird and Basilisk as a replacement for Firefox v 20.01 and I am quite happy with it.

Reply   |   Comment by Arthur  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Chris,

Yes, Thunderbird downloads POP3, including attachments ( that's what POP3 client does ).

IMAP in Thunderbird does require manually opening each email.

Who has only hundreds of emails?

Within 2 hours of setting up a new email address, I have thousands of emails, me just sitting there and watching it, never actually using it, email vendors apparently sell new email addresses to the highest bidder, and, viola, spam.

To remove attachments from email without deleting the email, just forward it to yourself without the attachment, then delete the email and keep the attachmentless copy.

Alternatively, I forward all email to a free group where I am the only member, and as the moderator of that single-member group, I have turned off attachments, so the group then lists all my emails as text records, but has no attachments - just a forever text archive backup.

Workarounds - the name of the game.

"Workarounds - the name of the game"
People used to be creative and find workarounds but now it is expected that it all be done magically with no effort.
Good thing they don't have to modify autoexec.bat or win.imi files to play a game like old days.

Peter Blaise, Within 2 hours of setting up a new email address you have thousands of emails?

Not unless you are doing something specific to create such a large influx.

Something free such as Thunderbird allows you to download and save all emails by virtue of using POP3 instead of IMAP , so whatever this offering may do different, the vendor has not done a good job in managing to explain it clearly.

What mail provider was that? You did check for marketing and communication preferences options when setting up the account didn't you?

I have many email boxes even gmail.com and none of them began filling up with junk mail after I just created them, maybe I am so undesirable even the spammers don't want to send me emails LOL.

Peter Blaise, The major flaw in your 'just email it to yourself, you thicko' is that you lose not only the original date the email was sent, but who the email is from. So instead of an email sent a year ago from Auntie Mabel, I get an email sent yesterday from myself. That's just dandy.

So instead of an email sent a year ago from Auntie Mabel, I get an email sent yesterday from myself. That's just dandy ..."

Auntie Mabel sends attachments?

1 - you have the original email

2 - the forward includes original date and who from and so on inside the body of the new email

Everyone has different needs and resources, and having a variety of tricks on hand can be quite helpful, hence all of us offering different ways to accomplish seemingly similar things.

If you don't want to forward, then don't.

Even if it offers you a way to strip attachments.

Thanks for exploring this and sharing.

In response to [ Ignacio Gonzalez ], "... Interesting, what kind of free group that is, that may stay alive for decades? ..."

I've been using IBM System 360 Groups since the 1960s.

NOTHING on the web is promised to last moments, let alone decades.

FREE Mozilla Thunderbird at least can download everything to have a local copy, then it's up to us to keep it alive.

The inquiry was stripping attachments, and forwarding to Yahoo Groups, combining ONElist, eGroups, and Yahoo Clubs over the years, does that, and it's up to 2+ decades at the moment.

I use it for remote access when I'm traveling to see my email from public locations without giving away my email password to local WiFi routers or networks.

We each have a fascinating of cleverly repurposed tools, and I'm grateful for those who have shared their discoveries here on GOTD.

In response to [ TK ],

I don't remember if it was a year ago or 5 years ago, or more, or less, but I created a free email address for a customer to show them how, then ignored it, and before the day with them was over, there was screen after screen of spam ... for a fake email address that was never ever used even once.

It could have been any one of any number of email providers.

There are 80+ DEAD email providers at [ https ://www. emailaddresses. com/email_rip. htm ], remember AngelFire, AT&T's Prodigy, DEC AltaVista, L'Orange SmartGroups, Lycos Tripod AngelFire, plus email provided by employers, vendors like Bell Atlantic, Erols Video, and email provided by ISPs and hosts ... that are now gone.

Funny, CompuServe, one of the fist "emails" I had in 1969, still works ... eventually bought by AOL, then bought by Verizon, then spun off to Oath and back again under Verizon Media.

I know everything on the web is temporary, but I've found it to be functional for my purposes.

And I appreciate everyone on GOTD sharing their experience of making web and local storage work, and working around quirks.

Peter Blaise, I guess back then we were more innocent and naive and took popup free providers at their word? My cynical mind thinks one simple and cheap way to harvest peoples favorite passwords is to offer a free password secured service that can be set up cheaply like a free email service... back then there was not so much said against password re-use between services so most people were doing that... I set up an email related domain name... obtain some cheap server space and a trial free certificate create a fake identity to get these things and use a VPN or two to set things up and push out some adverts and let the applicants come and create accounts using their favorite passwords and store them all... and ask them to provide a different email address for account recovery purposes and ask a few standard security questions.... all legitimate type of questions and then I can sell those recovery email addresses to spammers... use the passwords and the recovery email address to see if the password logs into to recovery email web interface... then see if they are the social media login credentials... wee a bunch of pwned accounts. If I'm stupid I'd also sell the new free email box accounts to spammers too but that would instantly raise red flags to new customers like it did for you way back then. I'll stick with ISP's and big named services where one knows the liberties they take and the overtly criminal activities would be more costly for them to be associated with since they cannot just poof into the ether like those honeypot free email providers of the past.

In response to [ TK ], regarding fake web page offerings to collect personal data,

Yes, but my experience was with a supposedly name-brand reputation.

It's not as if any vendor is sacrosanct, invulnerable, unhackable, leakproof, and never has a disgruntled employee or former employee.

My comment was in response to "... if you've hundreds of emails, it could be time consuming ...", me suggesting that "... hundreds of emails ..." is a serious underestimation of our modern email experience ( and, for emphasis, even for unused emails, which is my specific experience, which then diverted everyone's attention from the point ).

Thanks for exploring this and sharing.
