After Thunderbird's latest update, which I found only marginally better than their 3.0 upgrade, I've decided I am going to have to find a new email client.

I hate doing this, but I've gotten so sick of the crap I get with Thunderbird that I've got to look around. Right now, I'm on several mailing lists, so the new client is going to have to handle email lists well. Spam is a problem, so I need a pretty robust filtering system, too. I've got to also have a filtering system that will work well with multiple folders and email accounts (I've got 6 or so that come through and I need them sorted).

I know there are other priorities, but those are the biggies, I think.

Oh. And it needs to be free.  Grin

Suggestions?

Pegasus Mail www.pmail.com

I used it until 2004 when I switched to Yahoo Mail once the ships got internet access.

It's free.

Excellent folder filtering for lists.

Handles multiple e-mail accounts, including sending via different ones (although I never really used that feature to it's fullest).

It has a spam filter, but I never bothered, my ISP was pretty good.

That's one I was thinking about trying. Randall uses Barcapro, so I want to sit down and take a look at it, too. Incrediimail is another.

My experience is that Incredimail is a big headache. It's a resource hog and they bundle up all kinds of crap with it whether you want it or not.

Yes, that's what a number of reviews have said.

That's what I'd read as well, which moved it WAY down the list.

It's possible I've got Tbird to quit doing what it was doing that was annoying the hell out of me. Not sure yet because it's an email list problem, and the lists aren't busy today. I'll see what happens in the next couple of days. If it works, great. If not, I've got Pegasus Mail downloaded and one account ready to go to see how I'll like it.

I wouldn't recommend Incredimail.

One mailclient that I really appreciated, even though it isn't free, is The Bat ( http://www.ritlabs.com/en/products/thebat/download.php )
It could handle large loads, sorted it excellently, was able to open folders with about 10.000 emails easily. (OE broke on 1000) The templates also worked excellently for generating messages. And this was about 10 years ago.

I abandoned it mainly because it wasn't free, I didn't need the power and didn't feel to upgrade. However, I share your frustrations on Thunderbird and its new version (it doesn't feel friendlier), so if The Bat has moved with times (mainly in visual effects, it felt a bit rough at times) I might reconsider.

I find it amazing that there are so very few nice mail clients.

Last I checked, The Bat still did not handle HTML email or emails with pictures very well. Sad  I used it years ago myself.
