Pre-Purchase Question

Postby gerd2 » Thu Aug 12, 2004 9:24 am

Hello All,

I've been a very happy pocomail user for approx 2 years now. I've been reviewing Barca for a few days now.

I've looked thru the forums and the product information, and am seriously considering going to Barca.

Now here are the few questions, i would greatly appreciate answers from POCO sys reps or hardcore users.

____

Is Pocomail within Barca? In other words are all the features of Pocomail included in Barca - or is Barca simply Pocomail with Calendar and etc features?

Import/Export - i assume this will be flawless moving all accounts emails mailboxes (everything) etc.

If not ... what features am i giving up from Pocomail when switching to Barca?

_____

I know these questions are fairly broad, but any assistance you can provide to help me make a decision to move from Pocomail to Barca would help. I'm simply looking for a calendar where i can get reminders - and a good address book for contacts. So far Barca seems to have no trouble with that.

Thank you,
___________

Hi gerd2, welcome to the forums.

All the e-mail functionality of PocoMail is found within Barca. Barca adds the PIM functions on top and integrates some of them with the e-mail client (e.g. the ability to send or receive appointments etc).

Import/Export - i assume this will be flawless moving all accounts emails mailboxes (everything) etc.
Generally yes. The safest way if the back-up all your Poco installation using Poco's Backup menu option, then use Barca's restore option to restore the same data.

If not ... what features am i giving up from Pocomail when switching to Barca?
None well - skins aren't officially supported in Barca, and some people don't like the default colours...

:idea: All the features from Pocomail can be found in Barca. Barca is NOT Pocomail with Calendar & features.
Import/Export - i assume this will be flawless moving all accounts emails mailboxes (everything) etc.
I had no problems there, switching to Barca.
If not ... what features am i giving up from Pocomail when switching to Barca?
NONE. :D

I hope this helps. :wink:
:oops: Robin beat me too it. :lol:

I was a fulltime Poco user for a couple of years - did not have any problems migrating to Barca.

I beleive this is on topic. If I purchase Barca does that mean that I can use my own domain in the URL link contained in the email.

Currentley it displays pocomail link

Thanks in advance

By default non-registered version of Poco and Barca will show the Poco URL. When you install the licence number this disappears. You can add your own if you want to in the Accounts setup.
