Any thoughts?

I've been using Outlook but recently downloaded Eudora and poked around on it, it looks nice and lean, which I like -- I also got the old (free) version of Claris emailer (v.1.1), it looks even leaner and has that retro charm.

This isn't really a question, so this may be an inappropriate venue (weed will let me know I'm sure), but what are ppl using for email out tere?

I don't know what everyone else is using but for the past 3 years or so ive been using PowerMail. Small, fast, effecient, multi-language support, checks all the accounts at the same time. Squeaky clean and lean interface without the "bloat" that Outlook and Eudora suffer from.

For reading mail I use pine.  For downloading the messages that I haven't deleted, I'm still using Eudora 3.x because it stores the messages in a flat text file which can then be searched by a decent text editor.  I know that Outlook, at least on the Windoze platform, stores its messages in a non-text format which means that in order to search through them they would have to first be exported.  Powermail (thanks weed) looks like it has a nice interface and I will probably consider it when I get around to going to MacOS X and I'm forced to ditch some of my ancient apps.

Speaking of searches, PowerMail has a killer search engine. It uses the same search engine that Sherlock uses and it indexes all your mail so searches are FAST.

guess I should split the points here...

weed alerted me to Powermail, which I had never heard of, and mshivdas had a nice little info-nugget about Outlook....
