I spend a good portion of my life in Microsoft Outlook (2003, the most recent version). For various reasons, Outlook has become
my email program of choice since before it was even called Outlook. That’s not to say I haven’t looked at other email programs.
I keep a copy of Outlook Express ready for answering people’s questions. I have Mozilla Thunderbird installed for it’s newsgroup
reader, for the available email encryption add-on, and for it’s ability to just “suck up” email in raw, plain text. I even have
a copy of a non-GUI email program called Pine, and regularly use the the old Unix/Linux plain vanilla workhorse “mail”.
Apparently a lot of my life revolves around email.
Unless you’re a geek like me (and heaven help you if you are), you don’t need a long list of email programs. You probably just
need one. The right one, of course.
So which one do you need? And how do you choose from the tens or perhaps hundreds of other choices?
How do you choose what email program to use?
