A person may ask "Why buy a mailer when I get Outlook or Messenger for free?"

Because simply put, The Bat! is the most advanced mail agent on the planet. Whether you get a handful of messages daily or hundreds, The Bat! is the answer for your email needs.

a. Set up multiple accounts easily - separate folder structures for each account keep your mail organized
b. The Sorting Office, a powerful filtering system, not only sorts incoming, outgoing, read, and replied messages to folders, but also can auto-respond; reply with a custom template; forward, redirect, print, or export messages; send reading confirmations; run an external program and more.
c. Save hours of typing and numerous keystrokes with Quick Templates. Insert text blocks - even from files on disk - add custom message information, attach files and vCards, and more - all with a couple of keystrokes and without using menu commands
d. Create templates for new messages, replies, forwarded messages, and reading confirmations and customize them with easy-to-use 'macros'. Totally configurable, the merge-style templates can be created for accounts, folders, mail groups, and addresses entered in the address book
e. Support for fifteen different interface languages, with the ability to switch between them on the fly. Perfect for international use. Plus, extensive support for those who prefer to use the keyboard
f. Fast, built-in image viewer supporting GIF, PNG, BMP, ICO, WMF, EMF and JPEG formats. No need to wait until an external image viewer gets loaded
g. Fast, browser-independent HTML mail viewer and live Web links. Don't like HTML mail? Turn it off
h. Create as many identities as you want, simply and quickly. Each folder you create for messages can have its own identity (name, address, reply-to), complete with signatures and cookies, as well as its own templates. The possibilities for quickly and easily managing your email are endless
i. Purge old messages based on folder-specific settings, play sounds when messages are delivered, add addresses to address book on the fly, create filters on the fly, select from 10 character sets, use smart drag and drop, save messages to plain-text archives, and more
