If you are getting incorrect login with gmail, check your email and see if you have the following email below.

All I can say is WOW!! I need a program to be able to move my incoming emails into a folder on my computer?? I seem to recall that my Gmail, Thunderbird and Outlook accounts have this same feature. You click "Move", click the folder you want to send it to, and hit enter. If the folder isn't there, you make 1. Only I like their feature better because it didn't cost me anything, the emails are taking no room on my drive, and if something should happen to my drive before having a chance to back it up, I do not lose my emails.
Thks GOTD and ByteScout, but no thanks!

Most of the email sent to anyone is unsolicited and junk.
Instead of backing up your email en-masse, you can selectively choose some important email to backup or save or print to PDF.
In this way, you can reduce the email load from 1,000,000,000 to say, 500.
Then you can regularly delete ALL of the rest from time to time.
This will keep your email account lean and trim.
There is no meaning in backing up universally ALL emails.
It simply creates another mountain of data that you got to slog through.

Crashes ( .net and JIT ) trying to get Yahoo IMAP or POP, denies access to Gmail IMAP ( claims name or password are incorrect, the same name and password used for web mail ).

Free Mozilla Thunderbird works in all three scenarios.

Free-along-with-other-paid-services Microsoft Outlook works in all scenarios.

What's your goal here, ByteScout?

Ivanovich, it is 'translation' with an 's'.

Reply   |   Comment by Gupstock  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Ivanovich, who is translating badly? In English the phrase is just fine. Maybe your translator is not familiar with the English idiom and uses it as a football references and not the proper meaning.

But the answer to Peters question is their "goal" is to make a bit of cash from contributing to the giveawayoftheday.com project as per the for developers page on this site and push out their trial SDK installer out with every giveaway of their SDK demo program giveaways.

Gupstock, It seems that this is a blog where almost everyone talks about other free programs, which are the same or better than the program that is given away today. In the Dutch language they are called: Betweters.

[ Ivanovich ],

I wrote:

goal (n.)

... meaning ... 1530s, "end point of a race," of uncertain origin. It appears once before this (as gol), in a poem from early 14c. and with an apparent sense of "boundary, limit." Perhaps from Old English *gal "obstacle, barrier," a word implied by gælan "to hinder" and also found in compounds (singal, widgal). That would make it a variant or figurative use of Middle English gale "a way, course." Also compare Old Norse geil "a narrow glen, a passage." Or from Old French gaule "long pole, stake," which is from Germanic. Sports sense of "place where the ball, etc. is put to score" is attested from 1540s. Figurative sense of "object of an effort" is from 1540s.

You propose:

purpose (n.)

... meaning ... c. 1300, "intention, aim, goal," from Anglo-French purpos, Old French porpos "aim, intention" (12c.), from porposer "to put forth," from por- "forth" (from Latin pro- "forth;" see pur-) + Old French poser "to put, place" (see pose (v.1)). On purpose "by design" is attested from 1580s; earlier of purpose (early 15c.).

purpose (v.)

late 14c., from Anglo-French purposer "to design," Old French porposer "to intend, propose," variant of proposer (see propose).


Middle English and Anglo-French perfective prefix, corresponding to Old French por-, pur- (Modern French pour), from Vulgar Latin *por-, variation of Latin pro "before, for" (see pro-). This is the earliest form of the prefix in English, and it is retained in some words, but in many others it has reverted to Latinate pro-.

pose (n.)

"act of posing the body," 1818, from pose (v.1), in a sense developed in the French cognate. Figuratively from 1884.

pose (v.1)

late 14c., posen, "suggest (something is so), suppose, assume; grant, concede," from Old French poser "put, place, propose," a term in debating, from Late Latin pausare "to halt, rest, cease, pause" (source also of Italian posare, Spanish posar; see pause (v.)). The Late Latin verb also had a transitive sense, "cause to pause or rest," and hence the Old French verb (in common with cognates in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese) acquired the sense of Latin ponere "to put, place" (past participle positus; see position (n.)), by confusion of the similar stems. Meaning "put in a certain position" in English is from early 15c. Sense of "assume a certain attitude" is from 1840; the transitive sense (as an artist's model, etc.) is from 1859. Related: Posed; posing.

( Note: One of the most remarkable facts in F[rench] etymology is the extraordinary substitution whereby the Low Lat. pausare came to mean 'to make to rest, to set,' and so usurped the place of the Lat. ponere, to place, set, with which it has no etymological connection. And this it did so effectually as to restrict the F. pondre, the true equivalent of Lat. ponere, to the sense of 'laying eggs;' whilst in all compounds it completely thrust it aside, so that compausare (i.e. F. composer) took the place of Lat. componere, and so on throughout. Hence the extraordinary result, that whilst the E. verbs compose, depose, impose, propose, &c. exactly represent in sense the Lat. componere, deponere, imponere, proponere, &c., we cannot derive the E. verbs from the Lat. ones since they have (as was said) no real etymological connection. [W.W. Skeat, "Etymological Dictionary of the English Language," 1898] )

pose (v.2)

"to puzzle, confuse, perplex," 1590s, earlier "question, interrogate" (1520s), probably from Middle French poser "suppose, assume," from Old French poser "to put, place, set" (see pose (v.1)). Also in some cases a shortening of English appose "examine closely," and oppose. Related: Posed; posing.

I think I did okay with "goal" -- you and everyone else got it.

However, perhaps this is an example of the problem that ByteScout has in producing a for-pay program that isn't as functional, sophisticated, or intelligent as FREE programs ...

... that is, they are messing around with arcane programming tools and tricks, and forgetting what's important to the end users in a highly competitive field ...

... exactly like using the word "purpose" with hundreds of words in it's definitions and origins, versus using a way simpler word like "goal" and it's succinct, clear, unambiguous meaning and origin.

Thanks for sharing.

For decades I use my old Windows Live Mail (free) for my mail (14 accounts) and Seamonkey for NewsGroups. Both do exactly the same thing as this MDB program. Can anyone explain why this GAOTD offer is necessary?

Reply   |   Comment by luis  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+18)


My personal concerns with Live Mail are that it's not been supported [updated] for about 3 years now, and for the past several years it seems like security researchers have stopped looking at it, stopped looking for new vulnerabilities. If you Google say Thunderbird vulnerabilities, you'll see that new ones have been found, and of course patched this year. Do the same with Live Mail and the latest results are in 2010. One fact is that the people looking for &/or exploiting vulnerabilities are always getting better at what they do. Another fact is that Microsoft does not create perfect code, or we wouldn't get security patches 2, sometimes 3 times a month. I like Live Mail myself, and dislike the win10 replacement, but I simply can't trust that Live Mail doesn't leave me open to all sorts of hacks and exploits, so I no longer use it.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

mike, a lot of the potentially vulnerable surfaces in live mail can be hardened/worked around by always viewing emails as plain text by default and only viewing the HTML content after you are certain the mail is clean. Also disabling automatic display of remotely hosted content and keeping emails in the restricted security zone with no support for scripting.
It could be possible that some vulnerability may be found in the parsing of email headers which would then be unavoidable but that is the same with any email client. One would rely upon 3rd party AV software catching maliciously malformed attached image files assuming there was an exploitable image decoding library bug again that is the case with all email clients and mitigated by previewing and initially viewing all emails as plain text preventing image libraries being used without direct user consent and direct action.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Well, my version simply does not work. And there are no settings other than the pop server and email login details (which are correctly entered, in the same way as in any email client), plus where to store the files.

And the "Tutorial" button just takes you to the download page. Absolutely no useful information, let alone a "tutorial...

Complete waste of time.

Reply   |   Comment by Bob DDD  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+27)

Bob DDD, I totally agree with you regarding the tutorial page. I deleted the program and changed my password where I had hopefully to get the program to work by getting my mail. Couldn't find anything where it was on my computer so I hope I got everything off.

The description lacks important information: Which file format is used to store the email? EML, PDF or a proprietary file format can be considered. If this software converts all emails to PDF before they are sorted an archived, it can be useful even for private persons. Will the attachments be converted too? It would be good to know this.

Debjit Biswas,
After installing, and inserting a name and the number given, it definitely is the commercial program. However, I cannot find anything regarding a tutorial for the actual program only how to transfer Power Point to something else and screen recorders but nothing for the mail program.

Ronald Clarke,
The free incredimail has no junk filter , and has advertisements.

Reply   |   Comment by Eddie  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+30)

Ronald Clarke,
Hi, indeed, IncrediMail has and always had more multi-functioning features than any mailing Program I can mention here! (beautiful backgrounds called 'Letters', Animations, Sounds, E-Cards, Emoticons, allowing to add own collections of animated Gifs, stickers, blinkers, small animated wallpapers, and still pics using right-click 'Imp Cnt' feature straight from desktop or folders).

I've been using it since..1998:) and to this day. Bought all Licenses it offered ONCE and for Life (Premium Acc, Gold Gallery, Letter Creator, Junk Filter Plus and the rest of them) and they still 'stand' after 20 years! If you lose IM changing computers - they honor your Licenses after re-installing, time and time again..

Junk Filter Plus (yearly paid for) is NOT needed if using Version of IM with 'Advanced Account Access' feature. Looking in there while checking mail allows user to see what's junk, what's not - and block it, delete it, or bounce BEFORE it reaches your Inbox (truly full control!) You can sinc it with many mailing Accounts (mine using gmail as main address, but reading hotmail there, old Outlook Express in the past, Windows Live Mail, a.s.o - if I need to, for instance)
Only limitation being - cannot save bulk post, have to do it individually, or back-up the whole Program regularly to save ALL in it (zip File, to be imported from PC if needed) Another thing - IM's getting slightly 'out of fashion'?:)..Shame!

I'm sure, even free version of IM is worth looking into as an interesting Alternative Mailing system on one's machine?
Today's Giveaway might be useful, but I can see many of GOTD users have, and mentioned their own preferences on this occasion..

If you need this program for a personal use only, you can find its fully functional, freeware version on the publisher's website :^)

Reply   |   Comment by nagelfar  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+31)

nagelfar, quite right, it is my understanding that as a giveaway this is for strictly personal use anyway so there is no measurable benefit to activating the "business use" license since it adds no features and does not entitle us to use it for business use anyway.

After all it is just a demo program for the email portion of their SDK.

They just want to sell their commercial SDK that no one that participates in these giveaways is likely to ever want to buy from them. Far too many free open source alternatives out there.

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

Yes, this is a quite unusual giveaway. As the Bytescout website points out today's giveaway os licensed for business use only (otherwise use the free personal version).

Reply   |   Comment by Tony Austin  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Outlook, Thunderbird and most other email clients have this feature built in to them so what is there about today's software at $19.99 that is different or would make me want to buy a feature that my email client already has, from the description I can't see anything that would entice me. I could be missing something, if so somebody please enlighten me.

Reply   |   Comment by Blackhat  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+34)

Strange software:
ANY portable (or freshly installed...) eMail programm will do the same:

As for me: I always have a fresh, "empty" copy of portable Opera Mail at hand.
Unzippig this package on any computer, into any folder provides me with the same ability...
