Listening to Surfbit's MacReviewCast podcast today I find that there's now a free version of MailSteward available, restricted to 15,000 archived emails.

This is plenty enough for me to give it a good tryout, but one aspect I'm too not sure about I'm hoping someone here may know...

Do I need to leave MailSteward running (complete with icon in the dock) in order for scheduled backups to occur?  or is there some kind of Cron trigger or similar that will fire up the MailSteward to do a backup?

Thanks,

Mark.

Thanks for the info. smile

I was looking at EagleFiler and MailSteward recently but was unsure if it was necessary to buy either nevermind which was best. The 15,000 free version will do for me.

It's been awhile since I've looked at it but I'm wanting to think there was some sort of cron trigger.  Surely someone here can say one way or another with a bit more confidence though.

Even though I would love to buy the app, the 50$ price tag is too high for me. I could manage with the new 15000 limit, but would still love to contribute to the development.

That's good news. Going to give it a try.

I wonder which team I'm on...
Oh, I'm on the blue team smile.

Glad to point people in the right direction, like I said before it was Surfbits who put me on to it... 

Can anyone confirm whether the app needs to be open and on the dock for a scheduled backup to occur?

Thanks,

Mark.

My archive file has been modified this morning and I have not used MS since yesterday. I also opened the app just now and this mornings emails are all there.

Good to know, thanks.

I'm liking this a lot and whilst the 15,000 email capacity of the free version is plenty for me right now I think that if I stick with it I may buy it anyway to support the developer.

Now there's a 50% off promo (Standard & the Pro versions) of MailSteward via themacbundles website.

Even though 15,000 mails is plenty for me this is something I'm going to buy to support the developer smile.

At first I thought MailSteward Pro was part of their bundle then I woke up. sad

I will probably buy one of these. Im gonna wait and see how the PMC bundle goes first, so hoping it starts this week.

Mail Steward Pro is overkill for my needs, I don't want the complexity of having to have MySQL server installed in order to run it.

I've bought the standard version and annoyingly got charged 15% VAT (UK sales tax) despite the amount being under the £18 VAT free limit imports threshold.

£18.02 total cost, still a bargain smile

why are you just concerned about just archiving when you can actually back them up as well with archiving. Try MailBackupX
