The Bat! is a secure email client software, built to protect your correspondence against third-parties.

The Bat! protects your information through multiple encryption streams with the options to encrypt your emails on disk and during communication through an SSL/TLS connection. Free of global email providers that keep your messages in the cloud, and free of Web clients, The Bat! ensures your data stays private.

The Bat! Windows mail client is able to process and store an unlimited number of messages and has no restriction on the number of email accounts you can use.

More key features include:

  • PGP, GnuPG and S/MIME support
  • Internal HTML Viewer
  • Safe handling of attached files
  • Selective download
  • Powerful filtering system
  • The Bat!’s own Address Book
  • Handy templates
  • RSS Feed subscriptions
Version 6.7.20

New features

  • German online help
  • Polish online help
  • (#0595) Quick Date Range selection drop-down in the Message Finder
  • It is now possible to compact address book (ABD) files from the Address Book properties dialogue


  • 64-bit *.MSI creates separate Add/Remove program entries for 32-bit and 64-bit MAPI handler. The 32-bit one is default to make it possible to send documents via The Bat! from a 64-bit MS Office Word
  • Message Tags are now displayed in the Preview Pane's header
  • Since version 6.4 The Bat! offered to create a mail data directory in %APPDATA%\The Bat!\MAIL; now it creates mail data directory in %APPDATA%\The Bat! as it did before
  • From now on, Hunspell looks for dictionaries in the “Speller” subfolder, not in the “dictionaries” subfolder of the program folder (i.e. the folder where thebat.exe is located). User word lists were searched in the %EMAIL%\dictionaries folder; now it searches in the %EMAIL%\UserDics folder by default (although the old folder is also searched). It is now possible to copy full dictionaries, not just user word lists to the “UserDics” folder and The Bat! will also find them there
  • Updated Root CA certificates


  • (#0644) The Message Finder searched for answered messages instead of unanswered
  • Some cosmetic fixes in the New Account dialogue
  • Root CA certificates could duplicate in the address book
  • Previous version didn't install elliptic curve root certificates to the default Root CA address book
  • (#0641) Multiple Error messages when a user with limited privileges tried to open the Options|Preferences dialogue
  • (#0629) On IMAP accounts, for partially downloaded messages, plain text parts were combined with text/plain attachments for display (and the latter weren't shown as attachments)
  • (#0542) Selective restoring of folders from a backup archive was ignoring the "Include subfolders" option
  • (#0610) MailTicker was not refreshed when a password-protected account got unlocked
  • (#0600) Changing the Draft flag of a message in the Outbox folder did not immediately change the coloring of the Outbox folder in the tree pane
  • Tips of the day were not shown once a day but on each start of The Bat! during the day
  • Context help in the new account window didn’t work
  • File name handling in the .MSL files was unsafe as the .MSL files could contain references to image files with absolute paths pointing to unsafe locations
  • If a user registered The Bat! during the additional 10-day trial period, upon installing a major upgrade, the user got a 10-day trial period again, not the 30-day main period
  • IMAP errors when storing a message weren't reported in the account.log
  • Inserting large HTML code could result it program crash
  • German special characters (ü, ö, ä, ß) could be incorrectly encoded when using Extended MAPI/Exchange Server
  • The Bat! looks for different names for Hunspell now: first hunsp64.dll, then hunspell64.dll, and hunspell.dll
