what kind of mail client you think it's best?





Mgccl
There is so many of them
The ones I know are Outlook, Thunderbird, foxmail and dreammail

Most people recommand me Foxmail
When I think Thunderbird is the best(open source)

I previously used Foxmail, but found it a bit difficult with multi-accounts. It had a nice feature where you could send email from any address you like - particularly useful if you don't have access to an SMTP service you need, but this had two major drawbacks:
Firstly, you could only send email to one recepient if you used this feature.
Secondly, more and more email companies are blocking mails from "Direct-Senders" rather than via an authenticated SMTP service.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird - it became significantly easier to use when they upgraded it to version 1.5, now allowing multiple outgoing SMTP servers. As you said, it's open source and there are hundreds of extensions and themes available. It is my firm recommendation.

I use Thunderbird, i'm not sure if is the best, but all the functions that i search in a mail client are in thunderbird and i don't need a big process like outlook running in the CPU

Have you heard or of tried Popcorn? It's free, runs from a USB fob and leaves no trace on the host machine. Great for checking your mail when on someone else's machine. The company that made it have ceased further development, but a google search for "popcorn mail client" will find all the info you should need.

Haven't tried any but these two:

Outlook-garbage
Apple Mail on my Mac-love it

I usually just use web mail - gmail, yahoo mail, squirrel

yeah, mostly web mail for me too, but outlook isn't nearly as bad as everyone here says it is. It ain't great, but it works
mokhi
I think that hotmail is very good..

I think a stealthy switch to Linux and then Evolution. It's smaller than outlook or Thunderbird but it's just as useful.

I mostly use webmail (GMail) but for the normal mail I'm still using Outlook.
I like the "Agenda" feature and I personally don't like the mozilla mail client (It comes with mozilla, not firfox)
