Are your mailboxes out of control?

Does the following sound familar:

  • Do you get daily mails from your hosting company that the maximum size of your email account will be reached soon?
  • Or you can’t send out any mails anymore because your mailbox is already completely full and you urgently need to write to your customers.
  • Is your mail client slow as molasses?
  • Did you accidentally delete some mails for good?
  • Did you try to move your mails manually to an „archive“ mailbox but you lost your precious mailbox organization?
  • Did you forgot to do the manual archival because you had to do something more important to do?
  • Did you trust Google but your data got stolen?

Do you want to tame your mail client and your mail accounts? Mail clients never were meant to receive the amount of mail that we are getting now. Remove some or most of the mails from your mail client and make it snappy again.

What Mail Archiver can do for you

Set up Mail Archiver once and you will never need to remember to archive manually. And you keep your mailbox organization. Mail Archiver can work like a regular backup.

Mail Archiver makes your mail client snappy again by removing the mails from the mail accounts. When you delete the mail from the account or the mail client, it will stay in Mail Archiver.

Imagine coming to the office each morning never getting the dreaded „quota is full“ mail again. Never feel anxious again for losing an important mail. And even if you accidentally delete a mail: you don't even work up a sweat because you know that Mail Archiver has your back.

What are users saying about Mail Archiver X:

Calvin Luther Martin, PhD
Associate Professor of History (retired)
Rutgers University

I’m a writer and retired university professor. I spend my day writing and receiving emails. To say that archiving my emails is essential, is an understatement. I need them archived in a readily accessible, logical, intuitive, yet simple fashion. For years I used an archiving program which I won’t name. It was good, till Gmail ruined it. Even when it was good, it had shortcomings. Then I discovered Mail Archiver X. I’m blown away by its elegance, intuitiveness, intelligence, usefulness — and the helpfulness of its creator, Beatrix Willius. I cannot think of any way this program could be improved. For me, buried by correspondence from people across North America and indeed the world, Mail Archiver X is a life-saver — an easily accessed library of all my correspondence and its myriad attachments. I am deeply appreciative to Beatrix.

I am a computer professional with three computer books published, including one on database design. From the perspective of an expert on database design, I regard Mail Archiver X as a fully functional, well-designed database app for email archiving. I have found it to be bug-free, fast and straightforward to use. From the perspective of a user of Mail Archiver X, I am fully satisfied. I have several email accounts for professional and personal use, and organize them all into folders and subfolders within Apple Mail. Apple Mail is unwieldy for more than a year’s worth of emails, so I need an archive solution to hold multiyear emails. In 2018 I switched from Mail Steward to Mail Archiver X and recreated my multiyear email archive in Mail Archiver X from scratch, without a hitch. I particularly like that (in contrast to Mail Steward) Mail Archiver X retains my folder organization of my emails, so that I can find any emails from any year within moments. I also like that Mail Archiver X offers precise control over what gets archived and where. This app does everything that I need, and I have no suggestions.

What happened when I didn't use Mail Archiver X for my own mail:

A couple of years ago I was too busy to use Mail Archiver myself. I got the lovely "you mail quota is almost full". Every day I thought that I have enough time to use my app.

Then one day the mail quota was full. I needed to send mails to customers and couldn't. I wanted a quick fix and tried to archive manually. But I still couldn't send mails because the mails I had archived weren't deleted.

AppleMail seemed to delete the mail but it didn't. The mails were still there, but they were invisible. I had to call the support of my hosting company to temporarily increase the quota. Then I had to delete the invisible mails manually in the webinterface, which was no fun.

I lost 2 hours of my life because I was too lazy. "Never again" I told myself.

Therefore: don't wait until it is too late.

Standard version of Mail Archiver X

Mail Archiver X has a free demo mode which has the same functionality as the paid version. The application in demo mode can be used for 10 calendar days.

Mail Archiver standard version is a desktop application for the Mac, which can be bought with a one-time payment of $44.95 (with tax where applicable).

You can use Mail Archiver for your own mail. You can archive as many mails as you want from as many accounts as you have. And you can use the application on all your computers.

Mail Archiver X Pro

Starting with version 5 two additional versions of Mail Archiver X are available. Mail Archiver X Pro is a server version of the standard version. The standard version expects the archive to be local. Network drives or cloud solutions are not supported. If you want to access an archive from different locations you had to make sure that only one user at a time opened the archive. The server version allows multiple users to access archives at the same time.

The Pro version has 2 different licenses. The workgroup license supports up to 5 concurrent users. The single user license is for one single user who wants to access his archives from multiple locations or from a network drive.

The workgroup license costs 500$ plus tax. The single user license costs 150$ plus tax. A license is valid for one year. You need a subscription to continue to archive mails. Without a current license the application reverts to trial mode: you can access your mails but you can't archive or export the mails. A yearly subscription of the workgroup license costs 150$ plus tax, the single user subscription costs 50$ plus tax per year.

The workgroup license includes an installation service for the server. For the single user version this can be bought optionally. Also included are support tickets for the server in each license. 2 tickets for the workgroup license, 1 ticket for the single user license. The support tickets are for server reinstallation, creation of users, server maintenance or similar. As always troubleshooting of the main application is free.

Money-back guarantee:


Mail Archiver can be returned within 30 days of purchasing the application if you aren't happy with it.
