Hi, Please can you advise if the above program is safe as I'd like to use it generally, having tested the trial. This program appears to be safe as MalwareBytes AntiMalware 220.127.116.114 found no threats. However, Norton reported a warning as it says not many of Norton's users have used the program. I downloaded this tool from: http://www.maildev.com/download/and scanned it with MalwareBytes AntiMalware 18.104.22.1684, finding no threats. I ran it and allowed Norton to let the program run, when it warned me about the small number of users. I'm running it on Windows 10 32bit Pro which also warned of unknown publisher but I have seen this before with software I am more confident with. I tested the program with a low risk email (gmail) account (only a few mesages in there, mostly automated mails from social media, no contacts), it works very well - it has many options for batch/bulk backing up email including in non-proprietary format such as .eml with options for naming of the individual email files, and retaining the hierarchical structure. It all looks normal and not suspcious at all. However, with Norton reporting a low number of users and low numbers of followers on their social media, I find myself wanting my confidence with the tool to be higher as it looks really good for what I want. (I used to use a very similar tool from express-archiver.com which extracted from Outlook Express on Windows XP but this tool (and the OS of course) are now defunct.) The site looks very polished with payment options for the full version (which I intend to take up), and the head of the company had been on SuperUser for 3 years and has built a respectable reputation score, http://superuser.com/users/134397/jponceand their posts disclose that they are the developer of the tool when answering related questions. The company is based in Bolivia it would appear going from the about section on the site and the whois of the domain. So all looks fine and a really useful time saving tool, nothing quite like it. I am also aware of http://imapsync.lamiral.info/which may come close and appears to be open source, with paid-for support but this is more technically involved and does not appear to have the easier to use UI that maildev mailextract has. Can you advise: - if there is anything further I can do to improve my confidence as to the safety of this not so well known program - is you have experience of the tool yourself and have been able to perform tests and or analysis to determine safety By the way, I do not work for maildev or any other tools mentioned. I also have no financial interest. However, as it looks like an excellent tool, as well as my own confidence being improved, I'd love to see more positive confirmation if possible as to the tool's safety so as to help promote it. Thank you.
