The formerly expensive ForKeeps message archiver has just been updated. At the same time they have dramatically dropped the price and even made some aspects of the program freeware.

From their Web site:

Yes, ForKeeps version 1.0 was released in 1996. No other message archiver has survived on the market for such a long period.
This will be celebrated by completely changing the price structure of ForKeeps:
* The Pro Forum & Newsgroup Message Archiver is now freeware!
* The price of the full Pro Mail, Forum & Newsgroup Message Archiver is slashed from $124 to $39.
* Upgrades are now free. For registered users this means that anyone with any combination of a ForKeeps Mail Message Archiver (Standard or Pro) license can now upgrade to a Pro Mail, Forum & Newsgroup Message Archiver for free. Those with any other (non-Mail) ForKeeps license can upgrade to a Pro Forum & Newsgroup Message Archiver for free.
Version 4.90 contains the full Pro Mail, Forum & Newsgroup Message Archiver.
For non registered users it will be free during a 30 days trial period. After that period the Mail Archiver part will be blocked, unless the program is registered. However, the Pro Forum & Newsgroup Archiver parts are freeware and will always be available.
