Windows 7: Very Good free alternative to Outlook

Very Good free alternative to Outlook

Hi there

If you are OK with running any sort of Linux (either as a Host or as a VM) I'd download the KDE versions of your distro and use KMAIL -- it's very OUTLOOK like -- no probs with integrating also with GMAIL / EXCHANGE Servers etc as well.

The only drawback is it's a bit fiddly to configure an account the first time but KDE 4 is so much better than KDE 3 IMO this email client fulfils what I need it to do . Once you've got one account working then adding more is simple (even to different servers). It's nice having Home and Work on a single email client - at last - especially if you are working maybe on 3 or 4 different client sites.

The KDE team seem to be going from strength to strength these days and are producing a very slick, polished and professional looking desktop now,

If you like OUTLOOK and want a decent alternative I'd at least have a look at it. It's superior to Thunderbird IMO which is another popular alternative.
