    I installed this in order to get the animated emoticons it displayed and, instead got stuck with their email - which I did not want. I've tried everything I can think of to rid my PC of this junk and it's still there!
    Any advice?

    You didn't mention what you've tried - I presume that you would have tried the uninstallers which should have worked, but if not ...

    I'm using Vista and in the Start > All Programs there's an Incredimail folder which contains an Uninstall Incredimail function. Have you tried running that? It should remove it.
    Alternatively in Control Panel > Programs and Features (for Vista) or Add/Remove Programs (older Windows) Incredimail will be in the list and can be uninstalled from here.

    I use Outlook at work but I've been using Incredimail at home for some years and I love the graphics (I rarely use the emoticons though - too much junk for my liking.)

    Greetings,

    if all else fails try the Revo uninstaller. I have used it in the past to get rid of those pesky un-uninstallable programs and it works well.

    Best of luck

    The journey IS the reward.

    Hello, Casey
    I've used IncrediMail for more than ten years and I can testify that uninstalling is a problem.
    Incredimail takes a lot of pains to keep Your mail-record intact on Your PC, and removing it completely is difficult.
    However, IM also provides very good support. If You contact them and ask for it, they'll send You a file to completely remove IncrediMail and its content from Your computer.
    But think about it first. IncrediMail is a very reliable program. I think I was the first in my country (Denmark) to install it, and my friends laughed.
    Now they all have Incredimail, including some big printing company I once worked for.
    The free edition is good, but You can buy the thing once and for all (lifetime) for about 20$. (They often have special offers) This provides You with an excellent support.
    And FYI: I'm in no way affiliated to IncrediMail. I just like the program and think others will, too.

    Kind regards

    If the usual add\remove programs doesn't work OR Revo Uninstaller doesn't do it, check this site for additional advice. Apparently Incredimail has a rep for not being easy to remove.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    If you still want animated icons, try Thunderbird 2.0023 with the Mail Tagger add-on. Don't think it's compat with TB 3, but 2.0023 is fine for me.
