Is any one using thunderbird????

If so what do you think about it????

Have you had any problems with it????

Any one using it on a Win ME computer????

Does it support Hotmail? I guess not :D ;)

The resign why I am asking is because I am thinking of using a another mail client to try out seen, Outlook Express is playing up again :( & would use Microsoft Outlook but I like the look or thunderbird & it might be better :D

Get it and try it for yourself. Just remember that it is still in a beta type stage. I'm finding fine for what I need. There is no hotmail support straighoff but there are ways to get around that with hotmail checkers.

Yep

> If so what do you think about it????

Damn fine IMHO!

> Have you had any problems with it????

Never!

> Any one using it on a Win ME computer????

Nope, but its compatible with all Win32 PC's, as well as Linux, and a few other OS's (Solaris, OS X also I believe).

There are plugins iirc, that will let you use it with Hotmail
To be honest Stu, get an orcon account. They're local, you can use them with MSN Messenger, and you get 10MB Mailbox on the server instead of just 2. You can download them locally with Orcon as well, so you dont have to keep your inbox emails down :-)

Hi Stu

I use Thunderbird on my XP machine, and there is no reason why it wouldn't run just as nicely on WinME. As JM has already mentioned, it is still in beta stages but works fine for me [Mozilla Thunderbird 0.2 (20030901) build]. I have tried out a few email clients now, and keep returning to Thunderbird.

Download and try it :)
