here is what AnswersThatWork says:

We first got acquainted with IncrediMail in early 2002 when trying to solve numerous crashes on a PC. Well, from that time to today, 3‑Dec‑2003, we have yet to ever come across a PC with IncrediMail which was not suffering from horrendous problems, whether it be unbelievable slowness because IncrediMail was consuming most of the CPU capacity, to KERNEL32 errors, illegal operations, Internet Explorer crashes, and more, and more, and more. All such problems would disappear with the de-installation of IncrediMail ! We do not have one single good word to say about this program which has caused our clients endless nightmares whenever an end-user thought it a good idea to install it on their PC. If you want a free alternative to Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express, our advice is to de-install IncrediMail via the “Add/Remove Program” icon in the Control Panel (also delete any references to IncrediMail on the Startups tab of The Ultimate Troubleshooter) and then use a program like FoxMail available on our Downloads page. 17‑Dec‑2003 update : we have had one AnswersThatWork user today making a point of telling us they have IncrediMail, have not experienced problems with it, and are a satisfied customer. Late December 2003 to January 2004 update : another five users tell us having used IncrediMail without problems but indicate using IncrediMail Premium, the non‑free version – this may be a crucial difference as all the problems we have experienced at AnswersThatWork’s clients have all been with the free version.
