About
This is the Polarbar Mailer build download page where recent, untested builds of Polarbar are made available for testing purposes. Here you can download the absolute latest release of the software for installation on your local system. New builds are placed here approximately every hour, unless of course, the developers decided to take a break (good, free help is so hard to find these days!). These builds are mainly intended to be used by developers and QA volunteers in preparation for the next release of Polarbar. Please read the disclaimer before attempting to use anything posted here.

Polarbar Mailer is not a Java applet, but a Java application and therefore must run directly from your computer. If you need more information regarding Java and using it on your system, check our Java page.

Disclaimer:This software has not been tested at all. All risks associated with using the hourly build are your own and we cannot guarantee it will even start. Make sure you take the necessary precautions. Do not use this release against your mail data without proper backups! If you want a stable release of Polarbar, go here.

There is a user-to-user support forum which discusses the various bugs, fixes, and future features of the software. Help with the software can be obtained in the forum.

You need to download the Log4J Jar file once. You also need to download once the cryptix.jar and cryptix-pgp.jar if you want PGP support (not current with the latest PGP releases).

NOTE: As of build 2266, Polarbar requires the JavaMail support Jar files, mail.jar and activation.jar. These two Jar files must also be reflected in the CLASSPATH Polarbar uses when it runs. This may require you to update your Polarbar startup script (.bat, .cmd, shell script, etc.) and add these Jar files in the CLASSPATH.

Be sure to view the latest Polarbar build log file to make sure the build actually worked!

For users with lots of faith in the development team<g>, you can run the hourly build directly using Java Web Start technology by following this link.

The current build number is 2324
