MailStore looks really good (but has some broken Dialog Windows – strange for an DotNet App) – very stylish Interface Thmbsup. I downloaded the personal edition and imported some folders. The search is really fast (they are using (Firebird) Database in the background). I will try it with all my mails – on the upcoming weekend. Really nice software smiley
