I am trying it and it seemed very satisfactory, but noting nothing received for a while I sent myself a test message. The message sat with my ISP (Demon) for some hours - I checked with web mail. I have now opened Outlook express and the message was downloaded immediately.
Thunderbird is selected as my default email client; I have it set to check for messages every ten minutes (I have always on broadband); I checked for new messages manually several times. A number of emails were received yesterday.
I hope to be notified of responses to this via Thunderbird, but I will check with Outlook express ev ery few hours.
If any has experience of Thunderbird I'd be interested to hear what they think of it.
I have run Thunderbird for some time now and have never had any trouble, I have also got rid of a lot of spam since I started to use it, I also use Firefox, and once again its been great, hardly any spyware and no popups.I run Win XP
