Alternatives to Outlook Express?

  Bargee 17:59 16 May 2003

Hi, just wondering what other email writing & handling software might be available to replace Outlook Express. My problem with OE is that I can't configure my address book entries to use a specific email account ( I use 3), which would be really handy.

OK, I know I'm being lazy, but sometimes I forget to select the account I want to use & naturally OE uses my default account which can be irritating.

Any ideas?

click here for a selection of alternatives from Incredimail to Eudora via Foxmail and some others. Should be something you like there.

I can't recommend Icredimail highly enough, and would advise anyone looking for a well set out and user friendly Email service to use that. Unfortunately I can't do a 'click here' for you as I don't know how people do that! But it is a free Download either through Incredimail's own site or

Try Calypso mail - free now or Becky mailer which is excellent - about US$40 from click here

I use Becky and it is really powerful and has an excellent user group on Yahoo.

Calypso can be found at click here

Neither are "gimicky" programs - they just do what they are supposed to do and do it well. Becky is very customisable and I cannot rate it highly enough.
