Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Hi:

I will suggest you to go with Eudora or Incredimail. If possible try to use the premium or paid version. Free version is also good except some features are disable.

Ditto on Thunderbird. Everything Outlook does except getting hijacked by scripts.
