The new customiser is a real breakthrough! User-friendly, intuitive and powerful. It's redesigned almost from nothing, but it's worth it.
The folder properties look different now, resembling the account properties window making it easier to remember for new users as well as giving a new breath for the experienced ones.
Some more changes have also been done to the Search function, Sorting Office, Message Editor and IMAP.
Bugs. Yes, you are right, we couldn't forget about fixing them. And so we did!
Updating to the latest version of the programme is easy: there is no need in uninstalling your existing copy of The Bat! - just install the new version over. All the settings, messages and address books will be preserved.
Users of the Home Edition should also update the International Pack.
What's new in The Bat! v3.80.03 (compared to v3.71.03)?
