EasyMessage

Easy Message - Unified IM for ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, and Aol

reviewed by ClifNotes on 15 Jun 2005

 

Notes from Clif

So far this program has been a breeze to use. Very very small and light on system resources. Within a few minutes I had all four services running in one window. I haven't checked out all the features but what I've seen so far leads me to believe that it is as good as it's advertised to be.

 

Updates: Oct 2005, Sept 2006

I've been using EasyMessage now for over two years with no major complaints. Since I started, they've added pop3, hotmail, and yahoo email notification, so you'll always know when you get new mail. I've also found out that it can run as a stand-alone application on a floppy disk (yes! it's that small) or a USB thumb drive. Just install EasyMessage, then rename the EasyMessage folder in Program Files, then uninstall it and move the folder where you want to run it at.

 

Special Note:

When EasyMessage starts up the first time, it will launch your web browser and show you something the author calls the "Web Panel". Not too many people are going to like this behavior. Fortunately, the author allows you to change this in the "Tools" "Options" "Preferences" tab. You can also turn off the auto-run feature there as well.
