Which e mail programme do you recommend?

Hi :)

I have used Incredimail for years. The only reason I have kept it, is because I 'know' it inside out & backwards.

I never use the emoticons or other bells n whistles but because of the default emoticons you get at the bottom of every e mail, I have started getting mail rejected.

I am seriously considering changing my programme. I use it for light business use. I have done a little research & there are many more programmes than I realised.

What do you all use & can you recommend anything?

Thank you,

Thunderbird is highly recommended although I use Outlook and Windows mail

Outlook..does all you need + calendar, without the ghastly emoticons or outlook express..simple and effective.

I've heard a lot about Thunderbird. Can I ask you - I have several e mail addresses & I like to randomly choose who I send each mail from....Can I do this in outlook and Thunderbird?

Thanks for your replies!

Outlook Express does what it says on the tin. Windows Address Book is also amazing, try filling that up. Though as GANDALF <|:-)> says, for businesses, Outlook's calendar is the doggy's.

If the email addresses are from the same ISP, then there shouldn't be a problem. If they're from different providers, then changing the SMTP server to the same as your main account usually allows you to do that.
