Pubblog.com has released MailSteward 5.0, an upgrade to its email archiving solution for the Mac. MailSteward archives email in a relational database for easy access and safe backup. Version 5.0 now supports non-English languages such as Japanese, Chinese, Greek, etc and also runs as a Universal Binary for both PowerPC- and Intel-Macs. "Email applications, like Apple OS X Mail or Microsoft EntourageX or Eudora, are very good at sending and receiving email, but they are not really designed to efficiently and safely and smartly archive and access thousands of emails." Users can select email by date range, keywords, mailbox, subject or from fields, and more as well save, export, or print results. The application will optionally store attachments and merge several database together. The Cocoa application supports Mac OS X 10.4 and is available for $30.
