Need a Simple W7 email client

Using W7 Home Premium 64 with Thunderbird 3.0.3. Have several problems with Thunderbird using multiple IMAP accounts and sent folder problems that do no appear to have a resolution now or in the immediate future.
Both the email client that came with W7 and Thunderbird are overkill with far more options than I need like the personel, work, travel folder options.

Any basic fairly bug free email clients out there that will function with W7 64?

I use incredimail which works great for me

I have had my reservations with it due to it's inability to save in normal email formats but never had cause to change in 6 yrs of using it ?

Hmm, which one came with your W7? I am not aware of any that came with. Windows Live Mail is pretty good.

Web-based Gmail

I have used web-based Gmail since they first started beta testing it. It's basic as you can get and you can take her anywhere. She don't drink, do drugs, works in all browsers, doesn't have a long setup process and spits out emails as fast as you can type them in. It also has the best spam blocker of any email host that I have ever used in 14 years. But no spam bkocker will work for you if you stupidly post your email address where the spambots can find it. I get around this using http://scr.im/ It converts your email address to a URL. Then you can post it everywhere without fear of spam.

Can you recommend an email client?
I a considering Outlook and Thunderbird, are there any others that you can recomend? I currently use 4 email accounts for various reasons. The client must be able to handle all 4. This most important thing! I would like this client to be able to use cursive fonts! Thank you :geek:

Hello. Simple email client, plx!
So I happily installed Windows 7 Pro on my laptop and desktop. I have used GMail for about two years now and its nice, but I'd like to utilize Outlook and Office and GMail doesn't interface well (AT ALL!) with Outlook. What I'm looking for is a simple, clean, small, but reliable and safe email...

Email Client
I was just curious what the email client of choice is with Win7 since it does not come with one. I am leaning toward Thunderbird. I have to have the ability to have two email addresses. From my understanding if you use Windows Live Mail, you must actually go into the Control Panel and change...
