    Outlook. Not the quickest but fairly full featured and widely compatible.

    Yes, you're right i find that, but it was a thread without poll from 2002 year.

    TB for personal correspondence, Yahoo as a spam catcher. You know, those times that a site wants a e mail address but you do not like or have not taken the time to read their privacy policy.

    I went from Outlook2003 to Thunderbird and then Outlook2007

    Overall winner (IMHO): Outlook2003 - easy to use, many features, relatively fast and not much trouble
    Fastest: Thunderbird
    Worst: Outlook2007

    If only I could keep outlook 2003 and use Office 2007 :(
    Outlook2007 takes forever to retrieve new mail and looses connection or warns about incorrect password (altough it's automatic) at least 5 times a day.

    Using GMail with IMAP, btw...

    I know a custom install of Office 03 is possible. I always exclude Outlook. Is`t the same possible for Office 07? Exclude Outlook 07 and leave 03 installed?

    Just a thought.

    Outlook is the best, hands down.... nothing else is even close IMO. Been using it for almost a decade now. And I've tried them all....

    The most configurable Mail-Client is without a doubt 'TheBat!' A must for power mailer who need huge filter and Regex possibilities.

    I've always liked Outlook. I don't use it anymore after joining gmail.

    Let's say that mail that is important is either downloaded or copied as normal files in specific folders (not that many in my case). Believe it or not I'm a fan boy of Google, and I trust them in keeping my mail safe... I like the fact I can access gmail from any computer, and they also advise me when virus infected mails are found, not to mention their fantastic spam filter... All for free.

    Outlook

    Although I usually do webmail more...but webmail is not an e-mail client...so Outlook.

    Eek! Google "incredimail adware". ;)

    Working in IT as an SMB consultant...whenever I've stumbled across a clients PC that had that hideous thing installed....the system was rife with malware.

    I don't see what the problem is...

    I downloaded Incredimail on a whim to send Holiday emails and have run both SAS and MBAM without any detections. No slow downs...

    As a webmaster, I use PopPeeper for my 36 email accounts. PopPeeper handles high volume splendidly, & is the safest email client I have ever found for protection against spam and mail-malware
