Title: email program
Post by: Crankshaft on June 13, 2011, 08:32:15 AM
This shows how long it has been since I bought a new PC.

My new laptop has no email program included! Unless one buys Office.

So, any suggestions for free email programs?

PS. Gert, I got a VOSTRO.   ;D

Congrats man..

-if you want browser integrated, best bet is Opera
http://www.opera.com/ (http://www.opera.com/)

OR

Mozilla Thunderbird
http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-GB/thunderbird/ (http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-GB/thunderbird/)

OR just sign up for a gmail webmail account.

Gmail web interface +1
Use with Chrome and create an application shortcut for it...

^^^ here's one and as far as I'm concerned there's only one great solution that's platform agnostic, and that's Thunderbird. Your mail is safe and portable, hell you can even configure Windows and Linux to share the same data files so you can interact with your mail regardless of what OS is on the machine you're working on. Couple that with an integrated gmail account (POP or LDAP) and you've got a hard combo to beat.

Use Outlook or Outlook Express (or whatever they call that dross these days) if you want to lock yourself into 1 Microsoft Way or lose your mail archive when switching (unless of course you want to shell out for a conversion tool).

PS. Mutt is for wimps  ;)

You Linux guys...

Want a safe portable solution?
Outlook supports imap ya know, and gmail supports exchange integration for calanders contacts etc. If you want business mail, there is only one choice.

Yaya, Outlook, only makes sense if you're locked into Exchange.  Thunderbird integrates just as easily using imap or pop.
