E-mail users need, besides a good webmail service, an e-mail client software to manage their messages. Amongst the popular choices of users worldwide, such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Pegasus Mail, The Bat! or IBM Notes, Foxmail's top ranking in the Softpedia “Email Clients” category may seem a bit odd.
Change to English and set up an account
Being a Chinese application, the developer did not see fit that the installation process or the starting language of the actual program should be English and opted for Chinese. In order to switch the interface language to English, you have the choice of deleting the “Chinese.lgb” file from the installation directory or go to the menu bar and try to find your way around until you see “English”.
That being said and done, you can now assign your email account to the program. This particular process does not bring any difficulties and you will have your account set up in a matter of seconds.
Straightforward interface and support for multiple accounts
It sports a friendly and well-organized GUI that incorporates three main vertical panels for a quick overview of email messages, contents of the current email folder as well as the selected message.
Foxmail supports multiple email accounts to work simultaneously, thus providing you with all the messages you receive and notifies you every time when something new arrives in your inbox.
Schedule events, view RSS feeds and create filters
The email client software also offers a calendar for scheduling your appointments and a RSS feed reader. It handles message composition with ease through its WYSIWYG method and allows you to create refined email filters. The application also supports Outlook messages, Exchange email accounts and mailbox encryption.
Foxmail works with any given email account and brings all the necessary tools to simplify the email management process. The only downside of the software revolves around the installation process that may be too much for some users that just don't want to guess their way to its completion and quickly go for some other program in its category.
All in all, Foxmail is a pretty handy piece of software for managing your e-mail account. The interface is suitable to all, the computer’s performance is not going to be hindered and our tests did not reveal any errors or hangs.
