My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I have office 2007 and am not too happy with my Outlook 2007 as it is always giving me all sorts of trouble, and after having used Office for such a long time, I think i would like to try something else out there.  I have created my emails umpteen times and in the process lost some of them too.  
 I only have MSn email and gmail accounts.   I have some reviews about pegasus email and it looks promising.    Can the Experts please let me know if my move is a good idea.   I have downloaded the software, and I am now looking for any step by step migration guide.
thank u.

please clarify which portion of pegasus mail you are looking at the client i.e. email client
or are you looking at the mail server to run on your system?
you could use the mail server installed, to transition using IMAP to the other if export/import is not something you want.

If you do not like the email client you are using, this is user preference not sure an expert or I will be in a position to argue that you are making a mistake based on the information provided here.
There are many other email clients.

You should first define what your current usage is (how are you using it, etc.) what are you expecting a replacement to do?

etc.

The trouble you mention presumably deals with pst file growth and the consequences of that?

in response to arnold, I am looking at the email client
I think u may have a point in saying that it is the pst file growth and the consequences, may be my problem.  Do u think Office 365 will do better?

If you save all your email, using archiving to offload limit the size of the PST is one way and backing that up.

Office365 I think has a higher/larger pst size.

But backing up your data is one way to reduce the possibility of data loss.

I've not used it in a long time, had a preference for the Qualcomm email client which they stopped making a while back.
Download, install, during the configuration, make sure if you are configuring it as a POP client, to use the advanced options, to leave the mail on the server this way you can use your existing Outlook. until you decide which way to go.  Note the only thing that will be with a pop client, any initiated mailings or replies in the Pegasus email client will be saved within it.

If you search for Pegasus mail screen shots, there should be some older examples dealing with various configs that may help, but hands on, is a rather ..........
