To take someone’s money and then not deliver and not return the money is shameful. I don’t know how those people sleep at night.

Mailmate has been updated regularly and is a great product. It may be that some of the other products you mention were poor to their customers, or just charlatans. But Mailmate has been updated about 5 times just in the past week. Regularly updated over the past few years. Yes, it does not have a 2.0 number. But that’s just numbers. In terms of consistent improvements it is probably the most consist product I have in that regards.

If you have Mailmate be sure to turn on access to beta builds. There’s a lot there under the hood!

No, I’m afraid in the case of MailMate it is not “just numbers”.  They ran an Indigogo campaign in 2013, raised a good chunk of change, and made specific promises about features in “MailMate 2.0” and what the contributors would receive.

Okay ... so what did you NOT receive? What features are not in it currently that were promised? I’m not seeing missing features on the page you linked to. Perhaps it’s true, but I’m not sure what you’re specifically talking about.

I didn’t receive the software described on that page and that I paid $150 to support.  I did not receive what I was promised on that web page.  I, and everyone else, who signed up for that campaign was fleeced. 

Sorry for the heat—but it’s kind of hard to find a defense for that developer’s behavior.
