Giving up on X1

Postby Abdul69 » Mon May 21, 2018 7:28 am

I have been a long time X1 user, but I am giving up.

The latest version (8.6) of X1 is a huge disappointment.

For starters, if I maximize the X1 window, it doesn't fill the whole screen. It has a black bar along the bottom and to the right hand side. Real estate is tight enough without an application not correctly using all available space.

Next, message preview is a crap shoot. Sometimes it works and other times, like right now, it doesn't. The loading icon just wears a groove into the screen.

Furthermore, the primary reason for being a long term X1 user and staunch advocate is that the search results were very reliable and that is extremely important. I can no longer make that claim. Right now I am searching for e-mails that I know exist, yet X1 doesn't return any hits at all. Once you lose confidence in the results of a search, it severely degrades the utility of the search.

X1 is also terribly slow. Much slower than it used to be. Indexing seems to take forever, and as I type this, it somehow has managed to freeze totally. End task. Again.

The latest straw that broke the camel's back is this message that I keep getting, even though I have followed the recommendations multiple times.

---------------------------
Microsoft Office Outlook
---------------------------
Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Despite the message title, this is an X1 dialog.

Outlook has been set as the default client many times. It is the only client on my machine.

I'm not sure I want to keep trying to fix this just to get back to searches and previews that don't work.

In short, I give up.

Thanks for the decade plus X1, but it's time for us to part ways.
