Inky Portable, The Outlook Alternative You've Been Waiting For!
"“We've made it much more streamlined compared to something like Outlook,” Baggett told ConsumerAffairs. “With Outlook there's a hundred controls on the screen. We tried to boil that down to a small set of controls that are intuitive but retain all the power.”" —Mark Huffman, (07/25/2014)
"...some users might still feel reluctant to using a cloud-enabled email client. ...Inky is quite demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM. Sometimes it takes too long to log in or load a panel (we had to exit the program and restart it on several occasions because it got stuck in the loading panel)." —Elena Opris, (May 8th, 2015 16:01 GMT)
"On paper, Inky has everything: it's flexible, powerful, includes every feature I could think of, and has a slick interface to boot. It's also under constant development, ... At the moment, however, it's still not snappy and responsive enough to entice me to switch. For more advanced users, it might also be missing some power features." —Yaara Lancet, (Mar 17, 2014 10:00 AM)

Our Takes

  • Inky could eat a horse when it comes to disk space. Even only 1 email account, and the data size shot up to more than 400MB! Use EssentialPIM instead, for now. But it's worth to wait until Inky really matured and as slim and swift as Taylor Swift :)

Portability Notes

  • Inky do not have portable mode. It stores its settings in Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
