First thing I like about Eudora is that it's very light. I always open it in Safe Mode so make it even faster. It's also easy to make manual backup or transfer between my PC and laptop when I travel away from home more than one night. I can just copy the whole data folder from one computer to the other and when open Eudora on the destination computer all emails will be there.
The catch is that I can't use both computer at the same time. It must be one or the other and I have to copy the folder back to the other computer before I can use that one. This can be annoying for many people, but I'm used to it and don't find it too much to bare.

I installed it to transition our office out of Zimbra Open Source (which was awesome btw) to GoogleApps and its a waste of effort!
Overall, the normal single user won't see much of a reason why this software is terrible, but after 6 months and WAY too much energy spent on Zimbra forums and elsewhere, I have concluded that Zimbra Desktop has unrecoverable flaws!

Vista et seq. remove Outlook Express. Outlook prior to 2003 is far better than 2003 et seq., but it takes too many keystrokes or clicks to do anything, and it's just annoying. However, I can install the pre-2003 Outlook on Win7, then in XP import my Outlook Express into Outlook, then export the pst.
Thunderbird is an alternative, apes some major features in Outlook Express, but it is annoying, and makes bad use of space. If Mozilla isn't continuing to support it, then I won't use it. This means not using Linux as much, too.
Email is too important to use it online. I download the mail, don't keep addresses online, don't keep email online. Besides, Google programmers have gone insane. They keep changing the interfaces in all Google products at least once every several months, and I'm tired of their nonsense.

Did you ever see the movie Contact? In the movie Jodie Foster uses the very same email program that I enjoy.
So, here is the question, what is the name of the program she was using in the movie? And is it still available?
I hope someone can answer this one for me.

AOL and Netscape 6 the base program is Navigator. Look at SeaMonkey by Mozilla that is what it is now http://en.wikipedia....scape_Navigator
You can still get the old programs but there is no support for them and import / export not compatible.
There are even DOS version still available. Suggest reading a pdf owner's manual on how to use them however. Some switches are not set via setup program. You will need to set the compatibility settings too.

Incredimail has also done that for years...

Incredimail has been my favorite email client for possibly a decade now. I do understand why people have been shy about admitting it, though - Incredimail's unduly aggressive marketing strategy combined with the "child-like" web page designs. There was even a time when people misread the license terms and believed that Incredimail was claiming ownership of any artwork created with it - this happened right as it was gaining popularity, and it hurt.
Like Bumbleball, I liked it so much that I paid for it.
