So at work I usee MS Outlook 2003 and Outlook Express for my personal email. So, I just reformatted my machine and decided to try a new/better email client. I had heard a lot about Mozilla Thunderbird so I decided to give a spin. The installation was quite painless, and it is very fast. I am also using it for surfing newsgroups and so far so good. There is somewhat of a learning curve and I am still trying to figure out the new keyboard shortcuts, as well as how NG posts are handled when received. Overall this is definetly a step forward passed Outlook Express. Next, I will try to import all of my old email, as well as try some themes and extensions.
