Mozilla Thunderbird Email and News Client
If you are looking for a sleek, efficient and safer alternative
to Outlook Express, then you might like to check out the Mozilla
Thunderbird email and news client. Thunderbird has a user
friendly and elegant interface and Outlook Express users should
have little trouble making the transition.
One of the best features of Thunderbird is the excellent built-in spam filter. The Junk Mail controls make handling spam very simple. There is an adaptive filter that you can "train" over time to recognize spam messages. To classify a received message as spam, users can click the "Junk" icon on the program's toolbar. The filter will "remember" this clarification next time and automatically deal with the spam message according to the user's chosen settings.
It offers support for multiple accounts, an excellent built in
spell-checker, a number of ways to sort your mail and many more
features. Another plus is that Thunderbird is a cross-platform
application that is available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh
Thunderbird has been very stable on both my Windows XP and my Windows 98 systems.
