I've had it with Outlook!

Postby yintzy » Thu Apr 06, 2006 2:29 pm

I'm totally sick of Outlook crashing all the time on both of my computers. I'm considering Thunderbird. I'm wondering if anyone else is using it and any pros and cons. Thanks.

I've used Outlook Express for years and years and never ever once had it crash any of my computers.

Haven't used Thunderbird but I know Opera comes with a free mail client a lot of people like.

I use Thunderbird. Haven't had any problems with it at all. It works very similar to Outlook so it'll be easy for you to get the jist of it. I recomend it.

I have Thunderbird and I love it. I've never had any problems with it. It took me awhile to figure out the address book, but now I like it.

Yep, I'm using Thuderbird right now too and I've never had a problem with it either.

I'm forced to use Outlook and IE at work and I just hate it.

I never have problems with either Outlook or Outlook Express! They just keep on working. We have a friend who loves Thunderbird, though.

Thunderbird does a much better job of dealing with junk mail than my Outlook does. I'm using it exclusively now!

Well, I tried Thunderbird and it messed up very quickly - within a day. I tried a couple more times but gave up. It just wouldn't run properly for me and there were things I couldn't quite get to work as I chose so I'm still using Outlook Express...
