About IncrediMail

IncrediMail includes features that are common among email clients, though one of them sparks an interest as they mention the fast email search tool takes "less than a second to search through 10,000s of emails". It's true that other desktop search tools (i.e. Google Desktop Search) pretty much do the same thing, but for IncrediMail you get that in the same package.

IncrediMail also features an advanced Address book, enabling you to create contact groups in convenient ways, see who your most popular contacts are and assign a picture to each of your contacts.
