    Thanks for the link/info! I'll wait a bit before test driving it though. ;)

    As much as I like Firefox, I have been very impressed by the Thunderbird client. It's easy to set up and use, even for newbies.

    If for no other reason, the spam filter alone made it an easy choice for me to switch from Outlook Express...

    I've been using Thunderbird for quite some time now, about two months ago i installed K-9 ( http://keir.net/k9.html) as a spam filter, after a few days training it filters out over 99% of the spam.

    I recently added the okopipi extension https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2672/
    which lets me reports spam to spamcops, the FTC and probably the FBI and CIA if i really wanted to.

    I love the Fox and the Bird :D

    Mike: Have you tested the spam filter that is built into T-Bird itself? We use it at work on one of our laptops and it is very good. Sounds like our experience is similar to yours with K-9, except we didn't add any additional app...

    I do report my spam to spamcops, you are not required to have an account with them but i set one up because it makes the reporting a little easier. After every report i get a nag/aknowledgement from them
    "SpamCops" has accepted x spam emails for processing PLEASE HELP SUPPORT THIS SERVICE!
    SpamCop is free. However, if you like the service please pay for it: After i pay some Xmas bills i will likely send them some $$

    ===========================================

    To Han:

    I tried the built in spam filter in Tbird, i kept having to make more and more rules to filter out spammers. With K-9 i just tell it which emails are spam, that plus the downloaded DNS blacklist gives me 99+% accuracy.
