This site has many lovely features to enhance one's email. Is it safe to use? Have heard conflicting ideas about this issue.

And home, lab and such.
Why? The software leaks information to it's home site.

Here's another tip, for all those bells and whistles to work it uses alot of system resources. So that makes it a system hog, but the results can be highly liked. As for being a "data miner" a pgm. that returns info back to the maker, that's an open sore, but it seems to be addressed, look at www.cexx.com for a clue. Also, if you do install then check your SpyBot or Ad-Aware(got them?) scans to see what maybe logging, if IncrediMail is up to old tricks, then uninstall it.
good luck -----Willy

"Users, including without limitation, Users in the European Union, fully understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of their personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information, in the United States."
Right there, in about as plain English as it gets, they reveal that they collect and "process" it all and you give them that right.
My choice? BANNED.
Re:Incredimail - Tricks? No, they just tell you....
I've read many a EULA just to see what's really there when I had the time, but you "know" alot of people don't and just click pass it, me included. Even if a vendor is fair about collecting data, once that data is available you have no control over it besides the EULA, its just one pitfall. I got rid of Incredmail after it seemed to slow down my system so bad, it was gone in 3-days. I only knew later what it was doing and was more happy about the decision. just my 2-cents -----Willy

I have been a happy incredimail user for about 2 years now... The only problem is their seems to be no spam protection plug ins
HOW DO I EDIT PDF FILES
I GET MANY FORMS MAILED TO ME AND THEY ARE IN PDF FILES I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO FILL THESE OUT AND THEN RETURN OR PRINT WHICH EVER THE CASE MAY BE.
I HAVE BEEN GETTING DOCTORS FORMS BY THE SCORE MORE OR LESS. AND I WANT TO SCAN THEM INTO COMPUTER AND FILL THESE OUT. BUT SCANNED INTO WORD DOES NOT WORK IT IS JUMBLED AND A MESS. NOTE PAD THE SAME BUT I CAN PRINT A PDF FILE JUST FINE, NOW I NEED TO FILL OUT INFO. CAN ANY ONE OUT THERE HELP THIS OLDIE BUT NEWBIE. 79 YEARS YOUND.
You Can't ....
PDF files are created per the maker's wishes. If the PDF file is locked/read-only, then you can't unlock it.. ON the other hand, there is an option to create a PDF file which is editable by the end user. (A few companies use them as online forms which can be filled out and submitted, as in job applications.) Still, it must be created that way from the start.. The end user can't change it, unless, possibly that have the full and complete Adobe Acrobat program which costs a few hundred dollars.(NOT the Adobe Reader).
Hope this helps.

This Is a FIVE (5) Year Old Thread..
I doubt if you'll get a response from the original poster.. You must have done a lot of searching to find this old thing.
Keep up the good work.
