    help me choose an email client...please

    Ok, here's the deal...I have 6 websites...between 2-10 email addresses a piece.

    I would like a free client that will allow me to add all these emails in and possibly even allow me to group the inboxes so i can minimize/maximize one site's addresses at a time.

    I've looked at Eudora....don't like it, and my thunderbird isn't working for some strange reason and I can't get it to work...so i'm trying to find another one...any suggestions?

    Thunderbird, Evolution (Linux Only) or Outlook if you must.

    I stated in the first post that I would like it to be free (that's a no go for Outlook), Thunderbird isn't working for me right now, and I don't like Eudora.

    So...that leaves Pegasus and gmail so far.

    Can someone explain to me about gmail? I thought it was just a inet thing like yahoo or hotmail? I can use it as a total email client?

    Eudora is not bad for a free email client, Thunderbird is worth a look too.

    I use Thunderbird for about 6 different email accounts and it works like a charm. What exactly is wrong with yours?

    Gmail is only an online thing. I think what they're suggesting is making all of the accounts forward to Gmail.

    It's giving me the "Thunderbird is already running, either close Thunderbird or restart your computer" (i paraphrased that message) error. I closed, i restarted, i turned off/on, I uninstalled the reinstalled, uninstalled then turned off then reinstalled, uninstalled and deleted all files and folders associated with thunderbird then reinstalled...

    I don't know what else to do short of formatting my harddrive

    Did you remove your profile as well? Most people forget to do so because it's hidden in (I think) C:\Documents And Settings\Username\Application Info\Mozilla\

    Don't see whats crap about it, it recieves and sends emails, just like an email client is supposed to.

    Fair enough it does not have a fancy modern skin and no anti-spam measures, but if you are like me, you just want something that works and for a piece of software that is getting on for 6 years old, it does the job.

    I use it alongside Live Mail (for my MSN account) and Outlook (for my business) and cannot say I have ever had any problems with it in the 5 or 6 years I have been using it.

    I LOVE the Opera Mail client (M2), because it is a very nice email application with the added benefit of being built into the world's best browser. Quite free and meets your requirements. I have mine routed to a memory stick, so I can take my email with me to any computer with Opera installed (easy enough for me to install it on the fly too) and I can have all my mail available without lugging a computer around with me.

    This can be done with Thunderbird as well - in fact, you can run Thunderbird directly off a memory stick. But I still prefer Opera for mail.

    My mistake, it's actually called Thunderbird and it's in your application data folder. Make sure you can view hidden files/folders.

    I could tell you a joke about UDP. But I'm not sure you would get it!
