    outlook/hotmail via Thunderbird.

    outlook/hotmail also offers IMAP.

    Curious... Must you use POP? MS considers it technology past it's time, thus the reason it's not in Windows 8/8.1.

    When your ISP only offers POP, then I guess the answer is "Yes".
    I do believe that some now use IMAP.

    I'm a HUGE Mozilla Firefox fan, so I think your recommendations for Mozilla Thunderbird is the way to go.

    Thanks guys! *puppy*

    I would go with Eudora very powerful filtering.
    People seem to have got it running in win7 64bit and win8.
    I just use it in XP ATM

    There is a email help group as well which is useful
