Re: X1-Find (was [MB] What are size limits for Mailbag)
- I am also trying the new X1 program.
It has real promise!
But, so far I am interacting
with their bug department,
because it is not finding the
correct set of email files to index.
The godo news: they are really quick
to respond on bugs and suggestions.
Now they have not yet FIXED what
I have found so far, but I have hope.
when they get X1 right, it could be
killer for searching. I may still
use MB as a way to get some stats, massage
all those email addresses, etc.
But I have SO much email (in Netscape 7.1
format) that managing teh naitive files
and an MB archive is a disk space issue.
I actually went and bougth a USB 2.0/Firewire
80MB external disk to be able to backup
all my stupid email. Is that SICK or what?
