Bloomba Description:

Bloomba application screenshot

Bloomba is an email client with advanced search and spam filtering capabilities. It integrates a cutting-edge, natural-language search bar into email. Any email in your repository can be recalled, instantly, with a simple key-word search. Any message attribute can be entered into the search bar for accurate, lightening-quick results. It automatically suggests the most likely intended recipient and the most appropriate address. There is no time-intensive set-up and address input process. It doesn't need any time to learn your most frequent addresses - it learns from the first import of your existing email. Import messages, custom folders and accounts from multiple POP3 accounts. It allows you to group and collapse emails by subject and by subscription, accounting for responses, and relevant forwarded messages.


Operating System Support: Win/95/98/ME/NT/XP

33333 Good start, needs more features


I've been trying the demo for 3 days now. It takes a little getting used to not squirreling every message away in specific folders, but gets easier. They need to document how to do the queries better, as well as flesh out the documentation in general.

I think Bloomba will mostly appeal to geeks (like me) who are comfortable entering boolean expressions (rather than using the Advanced Search (aka Search Options) window. I can't speak to the spam filtering, as I have a pre-filter that works just fine already, but I can say that their SAProxy slows down email retrieval (versus PocoMail anyway).

33333 Very Good 1st Version


Bloomba is quite the polished email client for a first version, but it lacks a good user interface. For example, when you create a new message, the new message screen pops up in a different place each time. Eudora cures this by opening the new message within the preview pane, thus problem solved. The search, or "Google" model as I call it, that Bloomba is built around is clever and usable. Where we've grown up and lived with folders in email clients, Bloomba instead provides views. It's good, but rough, and needs work. Wait till version 2.0 or 3.0, then reconsider.
