Best mail client on Windows?
mozilla's thunderbird is treating me right so far.
I've had at least 1 false positive in the spam filter for Thunderbird. I wonder how Spam Beyes is doing.
Outlook 2003 is amazing product and I don't know how I am managing my mails right now with Outlook 2002 [I got my company laptop which doesn't have Outlook 2003! :(]
Outlook + Newsgator + Lookout + ActiveWords + K9 for spam.
Outlook is what everyone use, but unless you have serious network administration behind it, it could spin out of control pretty quickly.
no need for network administration when running Outlook at home.
Even though Outlook sure is OK (previously used it both at work and at home), i personally prefer Mozilla Thunderbird. It is much faster and more responsive. It also looks really nice, IMHO.
Add me to the list recommending Thunderbird. No stability issues so far (crosses fingers), fast, and looks really nice.
I used Outlook and Outlook Express for years. Earlier this year when there was a rash of e-mail viruses/worms targetted towards Outlook I decided that, for security reasons it was time to change.
"Don't expect to use it as a calendar and to-do list as well."
Just me (Sir to you)
The Bat looks good. Small, easily manages lots of messages, has built-in mail archiving and multiple address books with groups, PGP support, imports most mailbox formats so migration is a breeze, has good message organizational features (like "message parking" which prevents accidental deletion, flagging and color coding), custom templates for replies, multinational character encoding support, filters and spam killing of course, etc.
I second, third or forth Thunderbird.
I just paid for The Bat, which despite its extraordinarily cluttered interface is much more secure than Outlook and less annoying than Eudora. (I don't know what it is, but I cannot stand Eudora. Of course, I've never used it for more than five minutes, but still.)
Bloomba is my fave. Its' entirely search-based rather than folder based--kind of like Gmail, but on your desktop, and no clubby invitations required. While outlook can take about a minute to search through a couple hundred megabytes of mail, Bloomba does it in almost no time.
