Pegasus Mail allows you to send, receive, and manage your email, whether on your network or Gmail, Yahoo, or other Internet-based accounts.
Easy setup: From the initial install and setup, Pegasus Mail helps guide you with easy-to-follow wizards and a good Help file/user manual. For single users, you may have to look up the POP information for your Internet emails, but for the most part, the work is done for you. Setting up for multiple users does require some tech know-how, but the Help file also covers setup options in detail.
Multi-user support: We liked the fact that each user could have their own folders and separate setup, but you could also opt to share an address book with all users.
Easy to navigate: Similar to Outlook, the left pane holds a tree list of your email-related folders, which you can view in more detail on the right. There are more icons, but descriptive tooltips help explain the purpose of each.
Interface: We’ll have to nitpick here, because Pegasus Mail was an all-around good app in our tests. If we could change one thing, it might be to spruce up the utilitarian interface. It’s hard to quibble when other paid email clients aren’t that pretty either, but it is the program’s weakest point.
With its multi-account support and clean, easy to navigate interface, Pegasus Mail is a great tool. Even if you’ve never set up an email client before, the wizards and helpful user manual will give you all the help you need. Best of all, it costs nothing to try.
