    Default Bye bye Incredimail

    http://www.incredimail.com/

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Over 20 years ago, we set out to create an innovative email platform because we believed that the emailing experience should be beautiful, fun and make people smile.

    When we first created IncrediMail, we were amongst the first to feature an unprecedented interactive email experience, tailored to every mood and personality. It was important to us to keep adding innovative emails, stationaries, and countless smileys, to build an appealing and engaging collection of visual animations.

    With nearly 4 million customers, 270 million emails sent and 116 million designs downloaded, we are proud of the product we built, but even more so, we're grateful for the community of customers that helped us grow. Through every turn, your feedback shaped IncrediMail's development, and your passion helped elevate the product. Together we made this platform what it has become.

    Today, email is not what it used to be 20 years ago. Back then, there weren't any social platforms, instant messaging or smart phones-email was really the main source of digital communication. Now, there are infinite ways to keep you connected on the go, evolving the market and its needs entirely. So, after much thought and consideration, we have decided to retire our beloved IncrediMail to focus on areas that are more relevant to today's use of technology.

    As of March 20, 2020, we will shut down our servers and the IncrediMail desktop application will no longer be available.

    What should you expect?
    Sending, receiving and viewing your emails, contacts and attachments will not be available through IncrediMail. In some cases, you will still be able to use those functionalities, but they would be substantially less reliable and incredimail would not be able to provide any level of customer service or support.

    All of our IncrediMial graphics, letters, eCards, animations, emoticons, sounds, notifiers, skins and any other IncrediMail assets as well as any additional services such as Gold Gallery, IncrediMail Plus and the Protection Center, will no longer be available.

    Our first priority is to help make this transition as easy as possible for you. Therefore, we strongly suggest contacting your email provider and making sure all your data is backed up (emails, attachments, contacts, etc.).

    We know for many of you, a great deal of care has gone into managing your emails and contacts with IncrediMail-including your time and the most precious moments you've trusted us with-and, for that, we'd like to thank you.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this transition causes and we so deeply appreciate your loyalty over the years.

    Best,
    Dan & the IncrediMail team

    The perpetrators of Incredimail should have been compelled to forward each and every message by semaphore flags. Standing on Baring Head. In a southerly gale.

    And I knew this would happen, I know 2 people using this monstrosity and they want me to export the messages, etc, to another email client. I don't think this will be straight forward.
    Surely though it will still work after the shutdown? Possibly blank place holders instead of those naff graphics? One has got thousands of messages and I don't want to touch it with a barge pole.

    People should be taught not to keep emails like that anyway.
    If you need the address, save the contact - and back them up.
    If you need the info in the email, save it as a file. And back it up.

    Don't hoard emails...leads to tears usually and it's not a proper storage method, it's an email client....

    Incredimail dont make that easy . I had to BUY software just to export incredimail into Outlook when I did that for someone (many years of old emails). Thats allways the problem with
    email programs , its not easy to move old email from one program to another .

    You could just setup a new email program, without all the old email & tell them to use incredimail only to access old email.
