I'm currently using OE for mail, not thrilled with it. Using it for 6 hotmail accounts, 1 ISP based email, and about 5 NG servers (text only, use forte agent & newsbin for binaries). I do like the fact that you can easily change NG identities with OE, don't like that it shows a emailer's NAME instead of ADDRESS when you receive a message (most people have 2+ addresses, how you reply to "Sue Smith" may depend on WHERE the mail originated, her work or her personal mail etc. Since it just says "Sue Smith", you have to do a bunch of right clicking to find the ADDRESS). So what clients do people recommend?

TIA

Dan

If you get to thinking about using IncrediMail, since it's gotten several rave reviews, read this first from their user agreement. If this doesn't turn you off from it, you're not paying attention! :no: :no: :no:

Somehow I do not think this would stand up in court. Looking at it from another angle, a government run network still has to abide by the Federal Wiretapping laws. Meaning: they cannot arbitrarily access individual e-mail accounts. Even proxy logs have to be handled in a certain way. A .com like IncrediMail has no legal ground to make a statement like this.

Oh ... Eudora is good.
