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

I would go with Outlook as it can handle multible e-mail accounts (I currently have 3 in my Outlook 2003). I also maintain a club e-mail list and Outlook handles that with ease.

As I have an older MS Office and Outlook, and can't afford the $$ for Office 2010, I recently installed Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird and Eudora. None of these came close to Outlook and dumped them all.

It seems I have Microsoft Outlook 2007. Hows that compare?

I search it but the system said it's not availble. Do you spell it correctly? Is it "cursive"? they have something like this Curlz MT, don't know if it is what you looking for?

Yes, you just need to install the font(s) first prior to them being available in the fonts dropdown box.

Free cursive fonts - FontSpace

This is Outlook 2010, and as you can see I have selected the Dirty and Classic font, which I have just downloaded from the above link.

Outlook is good and it's what most people are comfy with since it's been a staple of Windows. Or rather it was.

I was surprised that Win 7 didn't come with Outlook or even Outlook Express.

I miss using it, but I didn't have the $$$$ to spend on it, so if you're in the same boat, you can go with Thunderbird or a couple other E Mail programs.

Which other email programs?

FYI, I have never used Outlook or any other email program, so I am fresh
