Email program

Got a new laptop, Win 7 Pro operating system. Have been using Microsoft Outlook in the past to manage multiple email accounts. Figure if there is something better now is the time to try it out. I use Firefox for web browsing so I have downloaded their email program but don't like having multiple in boxes, would rather see all incoming in one box.

Suggestions?

Re: Email program

Thunderbird has an option to view all e-mail accounts as "unified" for the folder view.

Choose VIEW -> FOLDERS -> UNIFIED. Will list all of your messages across different accounts in the same "INBOX" but also allows you to drill down at the account level (sub folder on the "inbox").

Not quite as "integrated" as the way OUTLOOK does it (and has a few limitations, especially when working with storage folders), but also has it's advantages that you can add/delete accounts at will without leaving messages from the deleted account still stored in the INBOX (if using IMAP).

Good luck!

I use it "on occasion" - certainly not enough to say it's the best one around (although it is free!). Easy to install and if you set it up for IMAP (or POP3 without deleting from the server) it's easy to try and delete if you don't like it.

At work we're all OUTLOOK based and for home I just use my GMAIL account (web interface only), which I have set up to collect all of my other personal accounts into the one GMAIL account.
