Does anyone of any bug/issue tracking software for OS X? Something that accepts incoming emails would be great.

I've been up and down Google and all I've been able to find for OS X is TestTrack Pro, which is overkill for my needs (I am just a single developer). But I installed the demo anyways, and it is quite bogged down and slow it seems (it is Java).

Anyone know of anything else available?

Thanks

There are always the bugzilla and trac Web applications.

I don't know what you mean about accepting incoming emails, but I think bugzilla is a great tool for bug/request/feature tracking.

bugzilla is a nightmare for a single developer. Trac is nice but I'm not looking for an entire project management backend.

I'm not really looking for a web based solution either... I am well aware of them.

What I mean is that it can accept emails from say [email protected] and will enter them as bug report.

One thing I like about TestTrack Pro is that you can make a small cross platform app to give to your clients (called solobug) and they can submit bugs with it, or record some to send later, etc... it will accept these submissions via email or FTP. I don't really need something that elaborate, but accepting bug submissions via email is critical.
