Discussion in 'polls' started by Creer, Dec 11, 2008.
Which email client do you prefer?
Outlook. Not the quickest but fairly full featured and widely compatible.
I use Thunderbird.
This subject and poll was conducted in depth in June this year..
Yes, you're right i find that, but it was a thread without poll from 2002 year.
Thunderbird, also if I often use Incredimail. But in the list miss Sylpheed.
I went from Outlook2003 to Thunderbird and then Outlook2007
Overall winner (IMHO): Outlook2003 - easy to use, many features, relatively fast and not much trouble
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.
Yeah I thought of that earlier today... It should be simple...
Will do it this weekend, along with my twice a year routine fresh install
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.
What I am running right now:
Thunderbird 3 (beta)
Ubuntu Linux PC
Windows Mobile PocketPC
Thunderbird, but back in the day I loved PINE. I miss that a lot...
On a couple of my thumb drives I use the free vers. of JBMail
I've always liked Outlook. I don't use it anymore after joining gmail.
Osaban, ok but how do you do backups of your mail?
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.
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...
On windows i like use windows live mail and on linux i like to use evolution.
Why not Evolution for Windows?
Here i was thinking it was a linux only app. I never considered checking if it had a windows version. Thanks!
I use PocoMail. I suites me perfectly.
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
