Thanks Joe what I really want is a simple email client, that I can use with my Virgin pop3 account.

Anyone else?

Calypso mail - free and easy. click here - no longer being devoloped but worth using.

Becky - from click here - about US$40 - I use this and it is excellent; has a large userbase and an active support group on Yahoo.

Eudora - free (ad supported) version / lite version and pay version - click here


Pegasus mail - free and good. click here

Thanks for the link to google, but the whole point of the post was to solicit a recomendation based on forum members own experiences.

  MikeB. 10:36 08 Jun 2003

Thanks I'll have a look at those.

Yes but there seem to be so many options, that I will never use. I previously used Aol and email was easy.

MikeB - I have used all four of the above and went with Becky because of the support given in the yahoo groups.

If you have only one pop3 a/c, then go for pegasus; it looks a little old fashioned these days, but is good.
