    I have the paid version of EZAR and I when I first got it.. it worked great...
    I also setup the mYSQL database from the other thread that is on here.

    I also recently purged all old Incoming and outgoing emails...and theat helped somewhat...but there is still about 500 incoming emails from my pop 3 server that is currently still on EZAR... so is this the problem.. everytime I try to delete these emails... it gets slow and sluggish and just crashes....lol


    Any advice ??

    We have all been there with EZ.

    I had to uninstall reintsall a few times.

    Then using a VM running Xpro it runs real well.

    Get SunMicros Virtual Box load XP Pro and then EZ and try it.

    To be sure EZ sucks and is a poorly written, obtuse and non supported app.

    I finally switched to Follow Up Expert which just runs and runs.

    I have found the Purge emails to be less than effective. The only real solution is to, in SQL, delete the database/copy it somewhere else, and create a new SQL database. You will have to set it up again from scratch, but it will be just like new. I recommend keeping a baseline database with all your settings done, so you can just overwrite the old massive database with a nice clean one, with all your settings already loaded. Same goes for Firebird databases and EAR, actually a bit easier as its a self contained database.

    I ran EZAR locally on a VM.

    If your using MS SQL with EAR like I am then you can find your database at the following folder path:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data

    Inorder to delete/move file in there you have to kill the MSSQL process from task manager or stop the service from computer management. You should then be able to delete/move the database, and then either start the MS SQL service from computer management or reboot the computer to bring it back online. I think you may have to create a database again from the SQL manager, cant remember for certain.

    If your using firebird, or if you want to revert to firebird, just go to My Documents and delete or rename the folder My EasyAutoResponder Data while EAR is closed. Doing this will automatically revert you to firebird and give you a fresh start. Just reopen EAR and it will recreate the folder, you may be prompted for your license again after doing this.

    It can be a bit tricky to get yourself a new database in SQL if your not used to it working with it, I would recommend just using firebird if you don't know what your doing with SQL.
