Standard version of Mail Archiver X

Mail Archiver X costs 44.95 $. If applicable, taxes have to be added. For instance in Germany the Mehrwertsteuer of 19% has to be added.

Choosing "Purchase online" leads you to the Fastspring store

where you can buy Mail Archiver X. After a successful purchase you can download the license file. When selecting "Register" from the application menu navigate to the file to open it.

Mail Archiver X Pro

Starting with version 5 two additional versions of Mail Archiver X are available. Mail Archiver X Pro is a server version of the standard version. The standard version expects the archive to be local. Network drives or cloud solutions are not supported. If you want to access an archive from different locations you had to make sure that only one user at a time opened the archive. The server version allows multiple users to access archives at the same time.

The Pro version has 2 different licenses. The workgroup license supports up to 5 concurrent users. The single user license is for one single user who wants to access his archives from multiple locations or from a network drive.

The workgroup license costs 500$ plus tax. The single user license costs 150$ plus tax. A license is valid for one year. You need a subscription to continue to archive mails. Without a current license the application reverts to trial mode: you can access your mails but you can't archive or export the mails. A yearly subscription of the workgroup license costs 150$ plus tax, the single user subscription costs 50$ plus tax per year.

The workgroup license includes an installation service for the server. For the single user version this can be bought optionally. Also included are support tickets for the server in each license. 2 tickets for the workgroup license, 1 ticket for the single user license. The support tickets are for server reinstallation, creation of users, server maintenance or similar. As always troubleshooting of the main application is free.

Easy Version

Starting with version 5.1 there is now an Easy version available in the Mac App Store. The Easy version can archive only 10,000 mails into a single archive in Internal Database format. Scheduling and encryption are not available. It's only possible to export to mbox format.
