Has anybody tried this for a mail account?

I clicked on the faqs but it won't link to that.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pegasus

I've tried it a couple of times. I didn't like it. Just personal taste, nothing wrong with it that I know of. I do like Thunderbird and get my hotmail, gmail and comcast mail with it. Many people don't care for Thunderbird. You just have to try them and see.

Thanks bob.
I heard of one that is called Hush Mail that looks like it may be a good one.
I sure miss Outlook Express!

Urlee,

Have you tried Thunderbird? I use it as I just wanted to try something new rather than OE. I configured my household Hotmail account, and my forum Hotmail account to it. It works just fine. I also added the calendar add-on.

I also want to admit I am not a huge e-mail user/aficionado. I just use it for basic communications. Call me old fashion, but I still use the telephone.

DA

I've used Pegasus off and on since around 1992. It's pretty solid, but it has some quirks compared to other email clients. One thing I like about it is that it uses its own HTML rendering instead of relying on IE as so many other email clients do. As a result, it's not vulnerable to problems with IE. It also has a small user base so it's less likely to get targeted for attack.

Urlee,

Have you tried Thunderbird?
No I haven't. Would have to look it up to see what it is like first.
