I’ve always used Outlook Express on my own pc at home. Reasons: familiar, easy to use and the real reason, Hotmail support. A few years ago, I looked at some alternatives, but after a few days I got back with Outlook Express. About 2 months ago I finally made the decision to move to Thunderbird. This Mozilla based Email client is Outlook Express+++. You can use most email systems like Gmail, hotmail (requires webmail add-on), pop3 and imap. You can download add-ons to tweak al kinds of options. For example: you can embed a calendar in Thunderbird and sync it with Google calendar.The only small thing I’m missing in Outlook Express is the font-size selection. If anyone know’s a add-on out there that ads this functionality. Send me n email.
