Just thought I'd see what people are using and can recommend.

Now that Im working for somebody else, I cant just use Gmail (Oh man!)...

Not really to keen on Outlook, a little too big.. and I could go Thunderbird but I thought I'd see what else is out there first :)

I tried jbmail32 the other day, *super* light-weight which was nice, but a little too light-weight I think.

So yeah, aside from Thunderbird / Outlook (And dont even think of suggestion Outlook Express...), what else are people using out there? :)

Nothing wrong with OE

Eudora has a big following.

Pegasus Mail - developed by David Harris from NZ

If your going to be doing and bulk mail sends (especially with attachments) stay away from Thunderbird.

Windows Mail :D

But Gmail can also act as an online client, so you don't have to dump it. :)

Yeah but it only checks every X minutes, which IIRC you cant define ... The more email you get the more frequently it supposedly checks.

Otherwise, I'd definitely stick with Gmail :D

OE/Windows Mail are just fine! :p

Whats wrong with them? Light and basic. Well OE is light anyway. I personally use Outlook but only because I need a calendar.

Exactly - been using OE for years and never had a problem.
Probably use it on my Mac as well if there was still a Mac version.

OE/Win Mail is actually one of the easiest mail clients to configure, change settings add accounts etc that there is.
Thunderbird is good but I don't believe it deserves the reputation given to it by the many devotees

I use OE on my PC, and Mac Mail on my MacBook, also have a Hotmail and a Yahoo one too! No probs with OE.

Eudora has been my email client for about eight years now.

I like the way it has separate folders for attachments and embedded objects which means that I don't have to save them to disk before deleting the email if I want to keep them. I think Thunderbird also does this but I don't find the latter quite as intuitive as Eudora.

Good idea. If I didn't have Eudora Evolution would be my choice. :thumbs:

Outlook and OE are fine. Too big in what way? It does everything you require..

Yeah but Im used to Google Mail, and love it! Have been using RoundCube mail the last couple of days, but it just feels so clumsy :(

Will try again..

That was a waste of download. Installed it on a Win2K and WinXP machines and it was the same as last time I saw it. Console window pops up then nothing.. I'll stick with Eudora..

Why can you not continue to use gmail?

Probably slightly harder to access?
I reckon OE or Thunderbird, both nice and simple

No idea how it works on Windows, I'm a Linux guy - never used the Windows version in my life :D.
