Take a look at one of the security sites like http://secunia.com/ and check the advisories Pegasus Email over the years. The link for WinPMail is http://secunia.com/product/5565/ and it shows only one hit over the years, none unpatched. You can compare this to the other email systems pretty easily. For example, OE6 has 21 hits with 8 not fixed.
Aside from all the sniping, I appreciate seeing this reference. It *does* say something for Pegasus, but not everything. It's one thing to look at history, but it's another to look at testing from an unbiased source, where a test suite is set up and all products are evaluated using the same criteria. Certainly this type of testing would be almost impossible, from a technical, time, and dollars standpoint, to do this thoroughly and correctly. Haven't any of the PC rags done any kind of testing on this? Because this is a professional forum, I would like to comment that the tone by a few people in this thread was unwarranted. Red flags automatically go up in my mind whenever anyone says "there is nothing better out there" with no evidence/links to back up the claim. (Have you heard the radio commercial for a diet pill where the doctor says he has "the final answer"? Yeah, he's looking to become a millionaire.) I just don't respond slamming the person making the unsubstantiated comments. So, guys, this is a worthwhile discussion. Let's keep it at a professional level, please? - Dan
