T-Bird 2 too.
been using Moz products for so long can't remember anything else.
I prefer to carry my email client with me. Thus, I carry a thumb drive and use PortableApps with the portable Thunderbird cllient. I love this setup because no matter which system I am on I have my emails with me.
I'm surprised, nobody does use Sylpheed?
light & sturdy, always in development, featureful, and easy-to-use.
Thunderbird latest, just because all of you have been so enthusiastic over it
I really don't remember the last time i even used outlook but when i did i never caught much more than a spammer or two in it. I never did understand why peeps would click freely on links from emails without first copying them to a safer location off the system drive, or at least have their AV configured to scan attachments etc.
Thunderbird is the best and if you need more feature than try MS Outlook 2007, its excellent one
Used becky for a very long time (never had one single crash) on 98se.Then decided to try pocomail for the junk filtering.That was fine but used more resources than most ,and the junk filtering was a little erratic.It also behaved a little oddly on my system,when renaming accounts.Fed up with firefox2 and its frequent "hanging" i decided to try seamonkey suite ,and havent looked back.I now use AVGs anti spam with seamonkey and it works perfectly.No "hanging" of the browser ,and the mail works fine too.
Thunderbird working well here, never tried any others though to be honest, so cant say which is the "best" or say what it had/lacks compared to other clients and what they have/lack compared to TB
It's surprising that such an old thread [First post March 22nd, 2002, 11:23 AM and the last before the last batch of new posts starting April 13th of 2007, was October 13th, 2004, 05:55 AM - there must be something wrong with the vBulletin software?] was able to be bumped back up to being active.
I've tried the majority of clients [both windows and unix] and I've settled of Thunderbird v. 2. TB does everything I need, the most important being cross-platform, and OpenPGP message encryption. Version 2 also adds a few extra nice tweaks like the new message popups and tags.
Tried most of e-mail clients and all a pain to setup. Didn't try Foxmail but heard many good things about it.
I have tried Pegasus, Pocomail, Barca, Foxmail, MS Outlook, Outlook Express and others too.
but Thunderbird is the best one.
My all-time favorite which I've been using for *years*. Only downside is it's not free but then, in this case, you do, in fact, get what you pay for.
I liked Sylpheed, but at the time it didn't address managing of identities (I've a lot of aliases under one domain).
I've Tried: Pine, Eudora, Mulberry, Sylpheed, i.scribe, Pegasus, Courier, OE, and others I've forgotten about.
Keep coming back to Thunderbird.
There was always something lacking in the other programs. IMAP handling, identity management, lack of spellcheck, etc.
I have used so many different email clients in the past but for some reason(mostly compatibility issues) i always end up back with OE(crapola).
It's mail service, not mail client.
Gosh, I feel alone. I use Outlook. It has worked well for me, and I like it's integration into the rest of the Office suite, especially Office 2007.
The best email client, probably Thunderbird.
What I use: Outlook.
Why? Because, in one place I have my calendar, contacts, tasks, notes, and oh, yeah, email. Plus I use it at work, it syncs with my phone, pda, and many online sites (so I can still access my information if an Internet connection is available).
If Thunderbird were to offer more, I'd probably switch but for now I only use Thunderbird as a newsgroup reader and to access some secondary and tertiary email accounts.
I use Outlook, mainly because I can exchange contact / calendar data with my smartphones.
you just have to use outlook if all your office uses outlook
Both Outlook 2003 and 2007
Outlook, basicaly because of the sync-capabilities with Windows Mobile devices
I've always used Outlook but since it has poor support on IMAP I started using ThunderBird.
I love it!
But.. It isn't as stable and professional as Outlook is. What can I say: life exist out of choices.
For me, I couldn't imagine using any client other than Opera's M2.
