- URL manager for background extracting images in HTML format
The emergence of a URL manager for background extraction of images in HTML format is due to the ever more frequent penetration of malicious codes into users’ computers through HTML messages containing graphics. The new manager allows you to block suspicious and skip safe images, extracting not depending on the folder or the message recipient, but based on the danger of the host or the URL of the incoming message.
- Favorite Folders
The arsenal of users received sets of Favorites folders and addresses, allowing you to group folders by various criteria, regardless of belonging to mailboxes. Users with multi-level message databases will appreciate the function of quickly switching to the desired message. For example, you can put various working projects in Favorites, frequently viewed folders, important unread messages, etc.

The history of addresses gives users the ability to track messages for each of their correspondents. The Address History Configuration Wizard will automatically collect the information for the recipients; Afterwards, users will be able to configure the maintenance of the Address History for the various recipients.

Thus, the technical support of the program is greatly facilitated – the user can get into The Bat! directly from Windows Explorer, regardless of where the program directory is located.
- Smart security buttons in PGP and S / MIME messages
The buttons that are displayed in the main PGP or S / MIME message panel now display multiple message options. For example, if the message is signed and encrypted, you will see one button that combines the “signature” and “encryption” icons.
The menu of these buttons contain the entire list of actions applicable to the message (for example, decryption, display of signature properties, import of certificates, etc.). The most important of the actions are in bold; these actions will be performed by clicking the left mouse button. If there are more than one of these actions, clicking with the left mouse button will open the menu, which will contain only these most important actions.
- TNEF format support
Some attachments of messages sent via Outlook were neither visible nor accessible from The Bat !, because Outlook uses its own format of nested TNEF objects. These messages, unlike regular messages with attachments, do not contain either winmail.dat or message.att. Now The Bat! supports this format.
- The Bat’s faster work!
Sorting messages in the “From”, “To” or “Subject” fields is now five times faster. In addition, The Bat! now uses less computer resources due to a fixed memory leak.
