Eurdora is a good program. I used it for a while. I'm not sure if you can import Outlook content into it though. May I ask why you are fed up w/ Outlook, and what version you are using? Outlook is probably one of the ONLY Microsoft products that I don't have a problem with.

What do think about outlook 2003?
Don't like it at all. The shortcut bar is so unworkable!
When connected to exchange and trying to use public folders is daft.
I primarily use Eudora for both home and office use. It can import Outlook accounts and email, but not (to my knowledge) signatures, rules or anything else. It was the best client around when I started using it a few years ago, but I'm sure there are a lot more options these days.
Eudora has volume licensing options and it also has a 'sponsored' mode, which is nice if you want to try it out for an extended period before committing to it.
I find Mozilla/Thunderbird to be good for my purposes. Working with multiple accounts, many folders, Junk rules and mail rules is sometimes easier than in Outlook. I personally like the no-switching-identity idea - at least the way Mozilla does it, it's a lot faster and much more seamless.
Outlook can be a pain, but the rules and sorting options certainly help!

Outlook 2003 is a far cry above and beyond previous verisions. If you haven't used it yet, I'd give it a try before giving up on outlook entirely. You can get a trial version of office 2003 from Microsoft for the cost of shipping.
I've always used outlook mainly because it's the easiest mail client to back up - as far as I know. All data is stored in a single PST file, which you can have any number of programs back up for you. Sure, you can back up multiple files too - but a single file is just that much easier. I've also never had the data format crash on me (post Outlook '97).
Outlook 2003 has an improved interface, but the best feature about it is improved memory management. When you minimize the application, it drops it's memory usage down to a meg or two. When minimized, it will still check for new mail, process rules, etc (though it jumps up to 5-6megs while doing this). That's a big improvement over the 30 megs of previous versions, or the 20 or so megs of competing clients.
I've never been that fond of Microsoft, but I must say they've definitely improved over time.
