What email program to replace Outlook

Hi. I am presently using Outlook 2000. It works well for what I need, but I am not happy with having to fight new strains of virus/worms that target Outlook.

Even with trying to keep my virus software up to date, it appears I am not fast enough in that by the time they update the DAT files, within hours one can be infected.

So...to hell with that. I need a good email program. Any suggestions? Eudora? Should I go back to Netscape? I was not happy with their newer version that was very graphical.

I need to be able to sort into folders using filters. Support for html, not just plain text is required.

Any suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks!

Eudora is pretty good. I think I'd go with that.

But you better check into the filtering into folders. I haven't used Eudora in a while so I'm not sure if it does that.

I use Eudora now, and really like it. It is a lot better than Netscape, in my opinion. Eudora does filter into folders, and I haven't had any problems with it at all. I really suggest it.

I also use Eudora and I recommend it.

i decided to go a different route then the mainstream programs

i went to tucows.com, and downloaded a few programs that recieved 5 cows.. then I tried them out to see which had the options I wanted (didnt need all the bells and whistles) and which programs use the fewest resources.. I was looking for a simple program that will easily let me setup multiple email accounts, and has a good filtering system.. I decided on calypso.. its worked great for me for the past 3 or 4 years.

i got fed up with netscape, switched to outlook which sucked and recently moved to eudora. i'm pretty happy with it. filters work fine so far and it has just about all the features you could want.

I was using Netscape and about a month ago upgraded to 6.1 or whatever it was. I shouldn't have as it was incredible slow and I gave up and went in search of something else.

I have used Eudora and Outlook in the past but didn't care for them. I tested Calypso and Allegro and didn't care for those either. Now I'm testing IncrediMail.

IncrediMail has a bunch of bells and whistles like "cute" notifiers, the ability to make your mail look like stationary, skins and whatnot. At first, it was pretty annoying. But I made it as basic as I could and it's actually working pretty well. It has some filtering ability but I haven't tinkered with that yet. You can also have multiple identities if that's something you need. A limited time shareware version is available.

Switched to Eudora a couple months ago after Outlook Express kept crashing - very happy with it...

Thanks for the replies.

Have you that went from Outlook to Eudora found that you could import your mail as PST files?

Thanks!

Here's a review of Eudora:
http://cws.internet.com/mail-eudorap.html

Yes, it imports MS Outlook 2000 (mail only).

It seems to be potentially buggy though.

I used Eudora Light a long long time ago and liked it.
