so what e-mail program

do you use and why? I've switched to Thunderbird because I was very disappointed with my old program. And I got curious as to what everyone else was using and why?

I know, pathetic blogging lately. I don't want to deal with the hard stuff right now. Too much in real life, why take on the world?

I switched over to G-Mail a while back, and I love it (and all other things Google). It is Java-based, and most systems need a little tweaking before it will run properly.

The spam filters are particularly harsh, and I prefer G-Mail to Yahoo! Mail because it is less junky.

A friend uses Eudora, and absolutely loves it.

I use Thunderbird on occasion, and haven't had any problems with it. I do prefer it to Outlook and Express, but you knew that. : )

I loved using Eudora, but then we had a problem with it and have been with Mozilla (thunderbird) ever since. For my shilohmuse stuff, I use yahoo, though I've set up a gmail and may transfer it all. I just don't have the time to deal with transferring addressbook etc.

I use gmail when out and about, and Thunderbird for my home ISP. Gmail has a great interface for web-based email, and Thunderbird has nicer security than Outlook Express.

If you want an invite for gmail I have about 50 or more to give away.

Thunderbird. I used to use Outlook, then Outlook Express, although the first standalone email client I (other than MCIMail, which was quite separate from darned near everything, including my ISP--even had its own 800-number access) used was Eufora. I've even used the built-in email client that's a part of Opera--several years ago; haven't tried the new "M" client.

Thub=nderbird, apart from a few lil quirks, suits my needs admirably. It's much more secure than any offering from MessySoft and has more easily-accessed functionality that most of the others I've tried. I do wish that filtering and compiling mailing lsts were less cumbersome, but that'll likely come.
