Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for DreamMail
DreamMail is a handy and reliable application that comes packed with all the features you need for managing your email accounts.
When you first initialize the program, you enter a wizard in which you can select to automatically create a default user or manually configure multi-user information.
In the next step, you must enter your email address (the client supports POP3, SMTP, eSMTP, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail and others), along with your password and name, and optionally test your account.
DreamMail needs a while to load your email account's database, but during this time, you can explore all the features located in its intuitive interface.
Besides the mail folder where you can access Inbox, Outbox, Sent, Trash, Draft and Junk Mail, you can create and organize an address book, search through your mail, access your account via a web browser integrated in the DreamMail interface, but you can also access a RSS reader.
One of the key features of DreamMail is that it supports multiple accounts with different configurations, but also multiple users. You can also create a backup for the messages, that will be stored on the software's server (optionally set DreamMail to delete it after specific time), as well as view received mails in HTML or text without online preview.
Furthermore, the application comes with several templates that you can use as backgrounds for text. In addition, you can password-protect DreamMail or specific folders, adjust the protection level for Junk Mail, create filters for messages, write notes, customize the interface, and much more.
The software uses a surprisingly low amount of system resources and it didn't freeze or crash during our tests. Unfortunately, we couldn't access the online forum to view helpful tips. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend DreamMail to all users.
