Hi there

I was testing just fine but somehow I missed an update and my beta expired. Where do I get it again?

    I didn't miss any update and my beta expired too. there's currently no working beta, so this is pretty sad.

    It's time to buy it from the official app store and, if everyone thinks about it, it's right. I have been using Airmail Beta for many years and for the respect of the developers it is right to pay for their commitment.

    If that's the case, it should be communicated correctly.

    The version on the App store is from March 19, is that the latest version available?

    And is now the right time to be buying Airmail with Airmail Zero beta just released? Will we be forced to ditch Airmail for Zero and pay for another licence some time down the track?

    Sorry John, but Airmail Zero is focused for Gmail. It's another product. Anyway, for me, I decided to buy Airmail as I use it in all of my Apple devices. It's right to pay it after a long time used in beta version. And I will continue to use it the beta when will be release it.

    I've had confirmation by Airmail that "Currently, we have closed the beta version"

    Gianluca, I totally agree with you. It's been awesome that Bloop offered the free Beta version for years and for the most part it works fine for me 90% of the time.

    More than happy to support their development team for releasing a great email app, log in the app store today to buy but looks like priced been raised to $26.99 now. Would be great if Bloop can offer beta users a promo price of $9.99. Most users would definitely pay for it if they knew the beta version would be discontinued.

    Hmmm...looks like it's not closed yet. If you log into HockeyApp, it's fixed on build 548

    I decided to buy it, Patrick, as I use Airmail on 4 Apple Mac's, and already have it on Ios Ipad. I don't think, even If price has been raised, to waste my money.

    I paid for the app on the app store and then found it wouldn't import some IMAP accounts from the beta app, which due to a recent change to using GSuite for those accounts and not being able to migrate the email over, means that Airmail beta is the only place I can get access to the archived mail for those accounts.

    After registering on HockeyApp to get the recent Zero beta, whenever I click the link above I get redirected to which tells me the app doesn't exist.

    So I ended up having to reset my system clock back a few days, open the Airmail beta app, check for updates, install 548, reset my clock and now I'm good again. :/

    I hope Airmail don't permanently disable the beta at some point in the future, because due to the strange IMAP setup on the previous server for the IMAP accounts I mentioned above, the beta app may be the only place I can permanently access the archived emails as it doesn't look like Google supports migration unless I was using Outlook.

    I've purchased airmail in the past, but having the beta "expire" (after crashing, which it does multiple times per day) and refusing to let me access my email has me beyond pissed off.

    I'm switching away from it now and never giving this company money again.

    I am Japanese.
    The Japanese search function of this app is considerably inferior to other apps.
    It is hardly useful.
    The same is true for kanji and Korean characters.
    This app does not support 2 bytes.
    I think it's too early to make it a fully paid app.

    Running the Beta Test for an extended period did not solve this problem.
    There is no guarantee that paying money will solve this problem.
    So I get lost buying.

    I own Airmail 3 but due to the fact that it didn't work with certain Mailservers, they gave me a new Beta version which worked well.
    Now the beta has run out and I wonder if I can use the prefs of the beta for the regular Airmail. What do I have to do to see my emails again that I saw with the beta version?

    For anyone struggling to migrate their data from Airmail Beta to Airmail 3, feel free to use the following script I wrote:

    I’ve used it myself, and it worked perfectly for me.

    Download the script as airmail_beta_migrate, then open and make the script executable by running:

    chmod +x airmail_beta_migrate

    To migrate, run the following command:

    @stdk glad to help out!

    @John have you found a migration plan for the archived emails? Who knows how long this latest beta build will last...

    @rasny that really sucks for non-English users! I guess search queries are different with localization so I would just look for another email app that caters to the Japanese language. You might want to check out Readdle Spark email app.

    @Claudia thanks for sharing the script! Does this also migrate the Rules? That's awesome that you maintain Homebrew

    @Patrick L will do the job (I've tested it successfully) but you have to pay a licence fee per mailbox.

    @Patrick L You’re welcome!
    Yes, the airmail_beta_migrate script also migrates the rules.

    I can't open Airmail today - it says it has expired. But then I have had no chance to move anything and the app just won't open. What to do??
