I get your point Jibz, but Barca was never listed in the first place.

Best E-mail Client / Barca 2
« on: November 21, 2005, 07:47 AM »
In the last few weeks, PocoSystems have greatly improved their email clients (Poco and Barca).

Barca 2 does not appear in the REVIEW section here and do believe it deserves a first look.
It has many features like Calendar, Tasks, Planner etc.
Search feature has been the major update and it performs incredibly well!
The back-up/restore feature is another handy asset that works just fine.

The price tag for a newcomer might be a bit too spicy, but i do prefer it to Outlook (not just for the price tag).

So much for my 2cents worth.

Whatever it was that Spy Sweeper found was removed.
That did not stop CHS from doing it's thing.

After downloading and running a scan with Webroot's Spy Sweeper,
a report was made for Clipboard H & S

Risk rating: critical

Win-Spy is an invisible utility that may log all keystrokes by all users and may take screenshots that are saved to a hidden folder.


It's odd that after downloading and running Ewido spyware program yesterday none of this was detected.  Hum!....

Does NOD have free version?
How is it on system resources?

Thanks for your input!

Thanks for the compliment m_s !

To others i'm probably just a NERD, placing my PC at risk (and others too!).

But if you look at it this way...
1. never open attachments without prior notification.
2. don't have floppies.
3. never open CDs from unknown sources.
4. block anyone on MSN or TRILLIAN CHAT program without approval.

Shouldn't this be just as good prevention as having an up to date AVG 7 that couldn't stop a virus from a webpage?

If Mouser likes ANTIVIR then i guess we'll have to take a close look at it.
Perhaps we can hope to see a review about it in the near future?   :Thmbsup:

A friend of mine has been having problems recently.  It seems that viruses can be picked up just by looking at a webpage!   :(    He had AVG7 and it did not detect it. 

My PC has been doing fine without any AV.  I rarely use IE (stick to Opera and Firefox).

Thanks m_s for sharing your experience with AVG and AVAST.
Does this mean that you consider these two to be the tops in the "free" world?

AVG, AVAST...?  Which free edition is less resource hog?    :-[

Can someone tell me how to work offline with The Bat ?

Also, is it possible to import / export calendar data with it ?

Thank you!

In all likelyhood, yes, i will purchase The Bat at pre-Christmas price!
Anything other than MSN is a definite and worthy investment.

Thanks again for the gift and acceptance to this great forum and group!


Forgot to mention that Copernic Desktop Search also does an excellent job for Thunderbird (still to be perfected).
One of the nicest features is the direct search to Contact list in either Outlook, OE or Thunderbird with quick preview of details.

After reading the kudos for The Bat here at Donation Coder, i decided to give it a spin again and must say i'm impressed!  Just sent the company an email to say so and mentionned the fact that it was thanks to DC that i decided to try it again.

Is The Bat, The Best?  Big question!

After trying and purchasing Poco, Barca, Opera. Incredimail and Outlook, i must say that The Bat (Home ed.) will be looked at closely during this trial period.

Already, i've noticed that the Home Edition does not have the spell checker feature that the Pro one has.  The import/export feature for Calendar seems to be missing...

Outlook and Thunderbird are IMO hard to beat:

1. Thunderbird for price (free!), it's good looks and effectiveness in handling IMAP. 
2. Outlook for the many addons like Copernic Desktop Search, Knockout and Desktask (all freeware!)
You also have many excellent sync programs out there that work quite well with Outlook: Intellisync (Yahoo!), Plaxo and  These last elements make Outlook a very hard one to challenge!  If i were to consider Outlook application by itself it wouldn't be so bad (yet still pretty tough!).

The decision in favour of The Bat Home ed. will be difficult!
