I recently switched from AOL to optimum Online, which is a cable modem deal. For email they suggest using Outlook or the Netscape variant. Any suggestions for which is better? Or a different email service that is good? Any answers would be appreciated.

I used to use Mozilla's Thunderbird email client, which I liked better than Outlook Express, but then I got a GMail account, and like that even better.

The advantage to a gmail account is that you can send the mail from your pop address (from your ISP) to the Gmail account and access it from any PC through the web - so you don't have to be home. Plus you can save all the email, because the storage is essentially unlimited.

Downsides are sizes of attachments, I guess and fear of the gmail folk poking through your data.



Now, just wait a minute!

If you absolutely must POP your e-mail, then I recommend Eudora. I absolutely refuse to use Outlook (not because of viruses, as I use OS X, but because I think Outlook is just a crappy program). Eudora, in my opinion, is very flexible for a POP client. It's free, but you do have to deal with an ad in the corner if you don't pay for the full version. (I've never paid for the full version if 5 years of using the program, and the ad hasn't really bothered me).

Keep in mind that I've used Eudora for a while, so I've never really checked out the newer programs that have come out in the last few years.

I've never used Outlook and have wondered, what's its purpose? I can just log on to whatever site and check my e-mail there. What does it mean to POP your e-mail?

I would use Thunderbird for the Bayesian Spam filters.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
