- I recently downloaded a trial of PocoMail. Loved it after 45 days trial runs out. Two options, buy it or get it for free buy buying another product from other suppliers. Didn't want to do that so clicked to buy it only to find out that it can no longer be bought. You can still download it though so it begs the question what the hell are they up to?

Thunderbird is no good!
- I've been using TBird for a few years, and now it locks up constantly for a myriad of reasons. Everywhere I looked, the reviews said it was the best. Then I got to this site and saw all the reviews by people who said it's no good. It seems like Eudora is a favorite here, so I'm going to try that. [Guide Note: Eudora Open Source Edition is a modified version of Mozilla Thunderbird.]

- I'm from India, and using incrediMail since 2007. I become addict to that and cannot think of using Gmail or Yahoo directly. It's so simple. Unlike Gmail, it keeps each email separately. Only issue is the search function doesn't work properly, really an "useless search". 29 $ annually, is slightly higher.

- Regarding SeaMonkey, I agree, except for one thing in the most part—It is not "Pretty". I Want Pretty. If there is a way to make it like Incredimail, I have not found it, and I am here now looking for my old friend. Even AOL mail no longer has the fonts etc. (SeaMonkey offers me less than 10 choices of my unlimited number of fonts) It will not let me Highlite. Does not have a decent transparency tool to put my pictures in there, but realize, none of the others here that I have tried will either, except Incredimail.

Thunderbird 7 is horrible
- Thunderbird 7 is horrible I have used Thunderbird and the calendar add-on for several years, but the version 7 has not worked. My computer freezes up, the calendar no longer automatically updates from my Gmail calendar. Thunderbird may not be the worst program out there, but the programers of it seem to be striving to make it the worst one available.

- Like most people I've tried almost every e mail program available. Over the years I've used IncrediMail most of the time. When it's good it's good but if ever you have a PC problem you can bet it's made by IncrediMail. Now I keep being told to upgrade and pay for the service. Be careful downloading, always use user options or you will get toll bars and all sorts of hard to remove rubbish. The best product is sadly only available for the Mac, stable looks good and so far after 3 years no problems. Needless to say I do as much mail work on my Mac.

Thunderbird and Pegasus Mail
- If you don't mind sending out sentences like "i went to town,then i went home," then Thunderbird and Pegasus are for you - they see this as mistake free.

Don't use Thunderbird
- Thunderbird is a pain in the butt. If I had realized Windows 7 didn't include an e-mail program, I would never have bought it. Thunderbird lost a ton of my e-mail that contained lots of info that I was keeping for later reference. My screen blinked and everything in my inbox disappeared just like that! Gone forever evidently since I can't find it anywhere on my computer. I was furious. I left questions on the Thunderbird support site months ago, but no one has answered my questions. You get no help, no support and no e-mails. When I connect and ask for new messages, it tells me 9 times out of 10 that there are no messages to download even when there are messages to download. I hate it.
Zimbra for IMAP
- VMware's Zimbra Desktop is the best IMAP e-mail client I've used so far, and I only found out about it because of the comments section of this article!

Thunderbird for years...
- It's probably not the best, but I've never had those problems described in these pages. Since a while, added Lightning, works also good. Have always been able to do approximately everything I wanted with it, and when I couldn't find a solution, I could find help within help forums here and there. One min-point: it looks pretty heavy for the processor sometimes, so better have a good one!

Email compatible with Outlook?
- Used Eudora. Loved it. Used ACT! Loved it. Using Outlook 2007. Don't like it. Is there a decent replacement out there that will interface with the calendar, etc., in Outlook? ACT! does but is far more than I need. Outlook is far LESS than I need. Sic.

Looking into Eudora
- I intend to try Eudora because of all the seemingly excellent reviews from other people.

Opera Over Outlook
- Used Outlook for 27 years. Back up regularly. Had a crash, first in 27 years. Outlook never worked again and I never got my email back. Tried Opera. An excellent browser. Goodbye IE. A perfectly good email program. Open-source Eudora too complicated for me. Nothing against MS. Just don't want to look forward to more hassle and expense. Could be right, could be wrong.
Dropping T-bird like it drops my mails
- Feature-wise, I like Thunderbird, except for the "randomly shred my email" feature, and there seems no way to disable it. This routinely happens when email gets moved from IMAP folders to local folders. All the features in the world are useless if your email gets shredded all the time. At the on-line support group, there is some combination of denial that this problem exists, and a blame-the-user mentality. I am thinking about switching to Zimbra, which I have used before. I have had problems with Zimbra, but I cannot think of a single occasion where it corrupted or lost one of my emails.
