Best Non-Outlook Email Client?

Question: Best Non-Outlook Email Client?

I need to move 8 of my email accounts to a different PC that already has MS Outlook running on it with a number of other email addresses that I need to monitor. I would prefer not to add the new email addresses to Outlook and would prefer to access them on a separate email client. What are the best choices in this regard? Obviously, Outlook and the client would need to play nice with each other, but that shouldn't be a problem, these days should it? I ask because the last time I needed to do this, I used Outlook and Eudora and they did not have any issues with each other, even running simultaneously. Yes, I know, I am getting old...

I don't think that it exists, but an email client that works with Outlook calendar invites would be ideal.

Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Best Non-Outlook Email Client?

I've been using Thunderbird for years and have yet to find anything to replace it. At this point I've migrated all of my accounts over to it and have nothing bad to say about.

As for calendars, I don't really know if you can integrate the Outlook calendar to it. There is an extension called "Lightning". That will integrate with Google calendar but that's as far as I've ever had to go with setting up a calendar in Thunderbird.

And for the record... I followed a near identical upgrade path as you did from the late 90s Eudora to Outlook (up to 2007) then finally just jumped ship. Haven't looked back.

When I try to run Outlook, I get an error message that says: "Outlook requires Outlook Express 4.01 or greater".  Apparently, I inadvertently deleted an Outlook Express library that Outlook shares and now Outlook will not run.  The message says to run "IE5Setup.exe" to reinstall Outlook Express.  I found the program on the CD, but it will not install because there is a later version of IE on the System.  The OS is Windows XP Pro w/SP2 and the Outlook is part of Office XP Standard 2002.I found an article in the MS Knowledge Base regarding this topic, but it doesn't really tell you how to install Outlook Express in XP.  I can't figure out low to download Express from the MS Download Center; so now I'm stuck.Has anyone encountered this problem or know how to fix it?Thanks

Answer:Outlook email client

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/default.mspxOutlook Express doesn't have its own installer, it is an option of Internet Explorer. You will most likely need to reinstall the latest version of Internet Explorer with the Outlook package included.

Hello everyone. I am interested in finding an email application that you can run, like the one from microsoft, but that will allow me to import everything i have (as well as continue brining my mail from) my yahoo account. Any suggestions?

*Update*
I found the program from Firefox called Thunderbird, but I am having trouble setting up the account. I am trying to import a yahoo mail account. Anyone able to help?
 

Answer:Email Client (Like Outlook Express)

I do believe you can only use your Yahoo! account via POP3/SMTP if you subscribe to the premium service. You can import your contacts but that's about it.

Hi,
I'm having trouble trying to get rid of this pop-up message every time I send an email through our accounting software. The accounting software links to office.
See Attached image.

I have followed each step of the following windows help article.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3189806/-a-program-is-trying-to-send-an-e-mail-message-on-your-behalf-warning-in-outlook

- Virus scanner is up to date
- Trust centre also says it's status is "valid"
- I have checked the button to 'never warm me....."
- I have checked the registry edited and the key value is 2, which is correct.
- I have restarted the computer after the valid steps to ensure the settings have been enabled.

All of the above still results in the popup message as per the image attached.
This is only happening on one computer, not all of them.

Anyone have any other ideas to try?

I have XP SP2

I just recently got a new ISP so I called tech support to have him help me set up an email account. I prefer to use the email client Thunderbird by Mozilla. But the tech I got could only do it in Outlook Express.

When I go into Tools>Accounts>Properties and choose the Servers tab it says:
Server Information
My incoming mail is a POP3 server.
Incoming mail (POP3) POP3.live.com
Outgoing mail (SMTP) SMTP.live.com

Then right below that it says: Incoming Mail Server
Account name: [email protected]
Password *******

The Remember password box is checked and the Log on using Secure Password Authentication is not.

Then below that you have: Outgoing Mail Server
Then the box: My sever requires authentication is checked and this allowed us to set: Settings

The first thing says: Log on Information then the first radio button says: Use same settings as my incoming mail server This is not selected. The next button says: Logon using and then it says: Account name: [email protected] and Password ******* Under this is a check box that says: Remember password It's checked. Below this is another check box saying: Log on using Secure Password Authentication It's not checked.

So, the names of the servers appears to be POP3.live.com and SMTP.live.com. I tried plugging these into Thunderbird as the incoming and outgoing mail servers but it didn't like it. I'm admittedly far from being an expert here. Do I even have enough information?

Thanks

Answer:Cant login to email from client like outlook or thunderbird

Check your email account settings, in particular make sure that for the outgoing server (SMTP) you tick the option for "My outgoing server requires authentication", Then tick the box for "Use same settings as my incoming server".Click 'OK' to save new settings, then restart the email client.

Hi there

I'm trying to look for an alternative robust email client to outlook -- want to start gradually moving away from Ms Office to cheaper solutions.

I don't like the way Ms is going with subscription based Office 365 and Office 2013 is IMO "The Pits" - office 2010 works fine but I want where possible to start using alternatives. Libre Office is fine for some things but not quite ready for prime time yet (IMO) especially for EXCEL but I can start moving away from office gradually with an email client first.

The email client must NOT be web or browser based (I Hate webmail type of things) and must support IMAP. I don't want it to have ADWARE or NAGWARE (you know those that keep persuading you "Please update to PRO version etc etc"). It must also support MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. It should ideally have a similar or identical interface to OUTLOOK -- simple plain, not like the background I've seen on some Gamers machines !!!!

If it can integrate with GMAIL that's fine but not mandatory. Preferably free too .

I did see a portable client ISCRIBE at i.Scribe and InScribe: A Small and Easy to use Email Client but it looks as if it might be a little experimental.

I discarded OPERAMAIL -- don't want any BROWSER or web mail type of stuff.

Answer:alternative email client to Outlook (NOT WEB BASED) please

From my previous post in Need a good email client :
Mozilla Thunderbird. You might be put off by claims about its future (no more development) but it will still be supported for a long time (stability/security fixes still going on). Zimbra Desktop Incredimail Pegasus Mail Opera Mail eM Client Windows Live Mail / Windows 8 Mail App
When have you tried opera mail last ? It should be separate from the browser today (it still uses the old presto engine while the browser uses the chrome one), check here : Opera Desktop Team - Opera Mail

Thunderbird, and Zimbra are all good choices and should fit your requirements. eM Client is very nice but it supports only 2 mail accounts on free version. Pegasus Mail is quite good but the UI is old now and it doesn't feel like outlook. Incredimail has promotional tag lines in your outgoing email and some ads show up.

Not included in this list is Claws Mail - the email client that bites!, since I never tried it. It seems to be OK, it's open source and works on both linux and windows, the interface looks a bit like outlook express, and it supports multiple accounts and IMAP. It might be what you're looking for.

Hey all

I just happily installed Win7 on my desktop and laptop. Included with that is Office 2010 Beta, which I want to use at least until October, when the trial expires.

I've decided to try and give all the stock MS programs a shot. I've become very irked by the fact that about six different companies offering two different suites with ten different programs in each suite, none of which compat well together, are what I get to sift through until I find my pick. I've currently been running Google Chrome and using GMail. Chrome is really nice, once I got used to the minimal interface. GMail, too, has long been a favorite of mine. However, I have Office and want to full utilize what I see as a great productivity suite, especially compared to Google's online suites, which seems to be still in the shaky ground of beta and new releases.

My issue is this: I've tried importing my GMail into Outlook, but there are a lot of discrepancies. Filters, for one, don't transfer from GMail into Outlook. I have like thirty messages in my inbox that should be in my school box. And I think trying to sync everything up would be a pain in the ass and need constant adjustment, especially since it's already been finnicky in the first day's use.

Is there some awesome way to get Outlook to recognize all my GMail settings? Or should I switch email clients (Which I'm fine to do. I just got a new phone, essentially a new laptop and desktop, and I'm moving, so why not go whole hog and change all... Read more

Answer:Outlook 2010...switch to other email client?

The best way of synchronising gmail and outlook is by the use of IMAP rather than POP3 access.

What this does is any actions performed at one location is duplicated in the other so if you have a rule operating in gmail the result is automatically reflected in Outlook and vice versa and the folder structure is also synchronised.

I actually find that gmails support for IMAP is not the best, (using tags rather than actual folders), but it does work.

A better Service for outlook/imap use is in my opinion Free Webmail and E-Mail by GMX | Sign Up Now!, which also looks more like outlook in use. you may want to have a look at this free service and as it has a mail collector, for your existing gmail account, can ease the transition

Am beginning to wonder if Microsoft ever launch a product that works with other Microsoft products.

First all the browsers no matter where stopped working in windows 8. I tried command prompt as admin netsh winsock r (worked on 1st computer running win 8 that the browsers failed on) , but this had no effect so I did a clean boot which seems to have resolved this issue (2nd computer with win 8 on that the browsers stop working but internet running fine on them.).
Before this was done all of sudden outlook 2013 decided when starting to display the message: Either there is no default mail client or the current client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft outlook and set it as the default mail client.

Now this I have done in all 3 areas, outlook, control panel and internet options within the IE browser. But nothing changes and they were all 3 set as default anyway.

So yeah, i still pay for my hotmail email just for the option to be able to use it with outlook Express (OE6)....without POP3.
Long story short, MS is killing OE6 ability to work with hotmail as of Sept 1. 2009!!!
(well except for POP3 access which i cant stand)

I liked thunderbird and the bat, but i really love the abilty to have totally separate identities like the OE6 offers. Not to mention the ability to password protect the entire identity / email client if wanted to with a password. (Without even being able to see any previously downloaded emails and whatnot)

Those are my two main things that i love about OE6 that i surprisingly have yet to find in any other email client....thus why i am still using OE6....and paying for a hotmail email.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Ill have to start my email client search and trials again...it's been about a year since i looked at anything else other than OE6.

The Outlook email client on my Windows 10 phone will not send messages. I have confirmed my SMTP settings. I have deleted the accounts and set them up again from scratch. I can receive but not send. Windows sweetly puts the unsent stuff in the drafts folders where they do me no good at all.
When it does that, I get messages about confirming the email addresses and not sending overly large attachments. The addresses are good. There are no attachments in my "This is a test" messages.
I'd be happy to switch to another client but there seem to be none available. I use Thunderbird on my desktop, Amazon's email client on my Kindle Fire, and I used both the Android basic email client and Google's Android mail client (I don't use gmail addresses however) successfully. I don't use hotmail.com, live,com, yahool.com, aol.com, outlook.com addresses either. Yes, I know I'm a dirty SOB for not falling into line, but I've used my fastmail.com account for years for my personal stuff and for my business stuff I host my own through a LeaseWeb account.

I have two client rules set up in my mail server thru my ISP's webmail.

1) If email is from 'a', move email to folder 'a'
2) If email is from 'b', move email to folder 'b'

Now everything works fine and dandy in my webmail, but in Outlook I'm not receiving any emails from 'a' or 'b' at all. Not in my inbox, not in my folders (same name), not anywhere.

Why is this?

Do I have to take the client rules off the ISP's webmail and only implement them in Outlook?
 

Answer:Outlook 07 - Not receiving certain emails...because of client email server rules

No idea how to do this with POP3.

Either way, I don't think you can have local a and b folders on your computer synch with those on the server.

If you set up IMAP (instead of POP3), you can see a and b folders on the server through Outlook.

Ya ya ya...i dont need to hear the bickering about OE6 and what not.

Basically im looking for a email client that has similar security features that OE6 has, like the option for seperate identity's and the identity passwords mostly. Particularilly how the identity passwords can prevent anyone from even opening the client fully so they cant even read any email that have all ready been downloaded.

If makes no sense why all these other email client are wide open so that anyone can click on a email client (firebird, thebat etc) and just waltz in and start reading emails. And to not even have a full lockdown option is pitiful IMHO.

Yes i could have it not save the passwords to download the emails...but the previously downloaded emails in the client can still be read...so whats the point?!?!.
Thats my main feature concern that im looking for in a email client. And since MS is going to kill the DAV protocol for hotmail in OE6 soon. Im looking for a good alternative email client, and hopefully stop using my hotmail account for good...which is the main reason i use OE6. I now i could use regualr outlook...but again the security issue...and the lack of future portability is also a thought..

Recently (since installation of Office SP2) adding a new contact or sending an message with a new email address the email address is not underlined and when attempting to save the contact or send message the following error is displayed:

"The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

This message also appears even if I try and send meesage by one of the POP accounts.

This is very frustrating as I cannot create new contacts or send new messages. I'd pull my hair out... but I've got none left!

I would appreciate if anyone knows how to fix this issue.

Answer:Outlook 2007 (Exchange client) will not save contact email address

Appreciate that you have correlated the problem to Office 2007 SP2. I am having the same problem with an XP Pro PC using Outlook 2007 connected to Exchange 2003 over Http/RPC. There are two accounts: Exchange and one POP. If I take the Exchange connection "off line" it is possible to add the new email address to the contact. THEN, I can send the email via either Exchange or POP. Also, I cannot send an email to an address that is not already in "contacts", or apparently never sent an email to a particular address. So, same work around. Take Exchange offline and then send email via POP account. With Exchange back online, it is now possible to send to the new email address.

In the office it's important but at home...opinions please..d. What ports for POP3 IMAP SMTP should I allow Thunderbird to use In the firewall( I use Comodo).

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.

Thanks!

In the past I used BD TS exclusively with OutLook as my e-mail client and had no such issues, have you tried, or open to try switching clients to see if it's something about Postbox that BD TS disagrees with ?
do let us know what you discover either way.

I use T-Bird (v 31.7.0) On 2 occasions now, I have sent emails, with Attachments, to a friend in the UK, who is running HOTMAIL.On each occasion the Attachment is OK, but the message I sent with ti increases it?s Font size, line by line, until it is unreadable. Two 3 or 4 characters per line??and sections of the email are repeated. 4 or 5 lines, then back to the top.They are blaming me for a Virus?..but I am thinking the problem is their end, with a stuck key, or similar. Any ideas ?

Answer:thunderbird email change font size in hotmail email client

I don't know what is causing this but pretty sure "what it isn't".1. It is not the usual behaviour of a virus.2. It is not a stuck key their end. Keys don't come into the equation for received emails.Try sending an attachment to yourself and some other contact who will co-operate. That way you should be able to narrow down which end is responisible for the problem.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Re: Is there a simple email client without all the extras like opening a new email ac

Hi

Sadly nothing is easy I'm afraid when using Yahoo webmail unless you have the paid account, Live Mail and Gmail are the better free email accounts, but try the below.....

You can use your Yahoo email address with the Windows Live Email Client, or try Thunderbird as its free too.

BUT note that to setup POP3 account with an email client application you may need a Yahoo Plus account which is a paid for account over the free email account. But you can try Ypops! to set the free email up with POP3 access. Thunderbird + Ypops instructions HERE

Here is the problem: I have my email client (PocoMail) set as my default email client. It shows up as default client in the "Default Program section" in IE7.
When I click on a email link, whether it's in another program or on a website, my email client doesn't open the compose window with the address entered BUT IE7 starts and opens about 80 windows which need to be killed with Task Manager. By the way, this has nothing to do with PocoMail because it also happens when Thunderbird is set as default.

I am stumped. Any ideas?

Hidy ho all,

I wanted to set up an email client that acted a bit like my phone handles email. Downloads the new ones, lets me choose what to do with them (read them, delete them, mark them as special or something) but then simply uploads the instructions to the server without actually deleting them from the server. Is there an email client that does this?

My Email client, MSN Premium (not Hotmail) will not open to write an email when clicking on any website's button labeled "send us an email". Instead this action causes several instances (up to 5) of IE6 to invoke and then the Op Sys (WinME) hangs until I use Ctrl-Alt-Del to end the erroneously opened IE tasks. I thought maybe it was that MSN mail was not my default email client so I used the proceedure to make MSN mail my default instead of OE6 but each time I returned to the options to see if it had changed it still says my default client is OE. Interestingly, if I envoke the MSN explorer and go to my MSN email inbox I can send and receive my email perfectly. This machine has been up and running since last October. I do not know if the problem has always existed or started more recently since I don't often click on "send us email" buttons.
I have three other machines similarly set up and none of them exhibit this problem.
WinMe, MSN Premium, and MSN messenger 6 all are up to date and current.

Specifically if using the portable form of Opera Mail, the mail client available from portableapps.com.
 
I tried looking at many articles from internet searches but found nothing telling where to find the folder holding the email messages for the email client.  My copy of portable Opera Mail is on a usb flash drive.  I have tried looking through the folders for the application but still do not know how to recognize any email messages.  

Answer:Where on desktop is email for email client?

 
portableapps.com.

You do understand that downloading apps like this from most 3rd party sites poses all sorts of security risks, Remember this, That software while it was made by WhoEver has now been modified by somebody, How was it modified, Who did it, What else did they put in it? I may be wrong here however I also think may be against most software developers TOS to use modified software like this.
 
 
FYI only.
While Opera is free some sites and some people have used " the making of a app portable" on paid for software to bypass  having to pay for the software. I used to do just that a long time ago. I now know and understand why it is bad.
 
Eg.
Making XXXXbytes premium into a portable application. While creating the portable you use a genuine key or "other" methods to activate Then compile it as portable with the activation in place, Now anybody with XXXXbytes portable has a free premium copy instead. That's software piracy. And Theft.

However, when I am set to make a new email to that person and type the first letter of their name, in the pop up window (that you can click on) their old email address still appears.
How do I delete this from that list? Can find no way to do so.

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

(sorry if this is a repost, did a bit of searching beforehand though)

I've used Opera's built in email for a long time now, mostly because I enjoy the convenience of clicking the left sidebar and opening my email so easily, but I was wondering what everyone else uses? Perhaps try to coax me into a new client?
 

Answer:What email client do you use?

Most that use IMAP (including myself) are not very happy with Opera's mail client.

They've rewritten the IMAP backend from scratch. It is available in 9.0TP1 and will be available in 9.0 Final when it comes out.

The problem is, the interface is a pop3 interface. Almost all the features are pop3 features. There are a million features missing for IMAP. Opera's mail client destroys the idea of IMAP. I've been on them to fix things. We'll see.

Also, the fact that the folder list is in a panel and the message list is in a separate window makes it a pain for drag n drop. Lots of people have panel placement set to float, which make the mail client a pain to use.

The whole filters deal just doesn't do it for imap. Opera's mail client doesn't even keep things in sync with the server. Also, it can easily wipe out all messages in your imap folder.

Now for pop3, Opera's mail client works fine and is pretty cool.

Also, if you are one to compose mail in HTML format, you can't in Opera. You can't even forward HTML that someone sent to you. Also, Opera itself doesn't support copying and pasting of rich text so if you copy pics, links and text from a web page and paste it, all you get is text.

Also, new in Opera mail, like some other clients, now splits up download messages into separate folders for each day and each message is now stored in a separate file. This is supposed to improve parsing files by doing things separately... Read more

I have a few email addresses from different companies that I have had for many years. I had no problem setting them up in Outlook Express, so whatever email address the person had that I gave them (anyone of three different ones), Outlook Express would open all of them.

Now I intend to buy a computer with Windows 7 and they do not use Outlook Express. I would like to keep these different email addresses and have the emails all open in the email client I choose to use.

I assume that Outlook would do this, but I really can afford it right now but will get it if I have to.

I have been using AOL for years and have finally got fed up as they have been losing 30% of my email over the last month and simply will not admit it is their fault. I have set up my own domain with oneandone who also provide me with 3 POP3 mailboxes and an outgoing SMTP server. So, I have some nice new addresses and some mailboxes which leaves two decisions: which ISP to use to get on line and which Mail Client to use to send and receive email.I have plenty of time to decide on which ISP to use as I am still using AOL to log on. However, the question of which Mail Client to use to access my POP3 Mailboxes is urgent. I have played about a bit with Outlook Express over the years so using that would be the easiest. However, I am worried that most viruses, worms etc seem to be written to work with OE so would I be best to avoid it?I am wondering about Outlook, but is it not also vulnerable to viruses etc? Is it not also fairly big and clunky given that I only want email, not any sort of time management. (I am retired) On the other hand, I shall be using several email addresses to keep my mail in order so perhaps Outlook would be a good choice?I am wondering to about Eudora and Pegasus. As I know nothing about these, any comments would be most helpful.With thanks in advance.

Answer:Which is the best Email Client?

This is a good choice if you want to add a bit of panache, or perhaps themes to your emails as I find most emails boring.Depending on your sense of humour you can certainly liven someones day up, and as far as bugs, worms, etc I am not aware of any but of course you have to be using decent Antivirus, Firewalls etc for protection anyway.

Thinking about getting away from using webmail, and getting a webmail client. I use W7 Ult. I am not looking to pay for anything; I understand MS Outlook has a free vers. So, I go to the outlook page, but it's asking me to sign up. That kinda threw me. Sign up - for what? Create an acct? That type of thing worries me, even if it is MS.

Thoughts? Thanks.

Answer:Email client

Ms Outlook has no free versions. Outlook.com (former Hotmail.com and Live.com) is a webmail service by Microsoft. It has nothing to do with Microsoft Outlook email client and personal information manager, part of the Microsoft Office suite. If you want to use Outlook.com webmail, you have to sign up for an Outlook.com account.

You can use Microsoft Office Outlook client to read and send Outlook.com mail but they really have nothing else to do with each other.

I am not sure if this is the right place for this question or not but I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and there are those panes and one was for Mail.

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to back of out that and there are other people that use this laptop using the same login information. When you select the Mail pane, it automatically goes to my email inbox. Is there a way to reset it so there is no personal info again?

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 client to switch to from GMail. I'll still use GMail, probably, and can go back to it if I don't like it anymore.

I'm reluctant to get a Windows Live Mail account (what is the domain name, anyway? @msn, @live, or what?) since I don't want to install redundant (Windows Live Essentials) software on my computers.

What do people recommend? Someone suggested GMX, which seems okay, but if there's something in-house, meaning Microsoft, I think I'd prefer that.

Answer:Hello. Simple email client, plx!

if you go to Windows essentials, they allow you to download just the email. That is what I did.

Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me some advice. My problem is as follows. I use Hotmail email, my partner has my email password which is fine as he often needs to access it to check paypal emails etc. Recently however he has started deleting emails before I read them and wiping them from my deleted box. Now I'm wondering if it's possible to have an email client that will download my mail and hold onto it even if he deletes it from my hotmail so I can see it. If not an external email client then maybe a server I can stream my mail through as such? I was considering Thunderbird but I'm not sure if it has that capability, or if anything does make this possible?

Is there perhaps a client that will download the email as it's pushed onto the server but not remove them if its deleted thought my webmail account?

Any advice or opinions much appreciated. I have of course asked him NOT to delete things but it hasnt had any effect
 

Answer:Is an Email Client the answer? Please help.

Hi

This is a difficult-ish one as in the main if you delete hotmail emails they get deleted perminently as it doesnt work like many HTTP email services with "leave copy of emails on the server" option in email clients, I just tested this again with my hotmail account usinging Thunderbird to delete an email and then logging online to Hotmail and seeing if its still there, well sadly it wasnt.

But an option I could suggest barring anyone elses thoughts on this is to create yourself a new Hotmail account (dont give password out) and then in the one your having the delete issues, is to login online to Hotmail and click options, then click Email Forwarding and then click Forward your email to another email account and then add that account address into the box and click Save.

This should automatically forward all emails from your main email account to this secondary one, so you can access that account online to check for any missing ones.


I wouldnt suggest using an email client as in Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail, Outlook etc as your partner would have access to that client, unless you create a secondary Basic User account for them and leave yourself as Admin (create a password for the Admin account)

What Windows version and Service Pack are you using btw?

I have used a number of clients over the years from Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2013.

I am wondering what you guys use as your main client.

Answer:Which email desktop client do you use and why?

I just use my browser to read my email, GMAIL.
I do like Thumderbird and I really should test it out in Win10TP.
I've also used Eudora in the past and it was very good. IMO.

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

Answer:Can you recommend an email client?

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.

Can someone please tell me what is the Windows 8 email client called?

I mean the same as Outlook Express NOT the full Outlook
Also how do I get to set up my email account in it?

All help much appreciated
 

Answer:Email client in Windows 8

I think that the Windows Store App (or, tile on the Modern UI) is simply called "Mail." Launch it, and if I remember correctly you bring up the Charms bar and click on Settings. Those Settings will be for the Mail app.

There is no built-in desktop email client.

This question is what seems useful to ask after reading http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/537071/transferring-e-mail-system-from-old-xp-to-new-win-8-computer/
 
 
Why or what is the advantage of using a separate email client software program, when webmail lets you do everything(?) that you would want without installing an email client on your computer.

Answer:Why a separate email client?

There are those of us that rather have the email on our computers and not stored on a server. There are times I want to read my email while off-line. Some people like to integrate their email into their calendar client as well. Those are just three things you can't do with webmail.I'm sure there are a lot more, that I either don't do or use. Or don't come to mind at the moment.Not dire, but what if the server is down when you want to look at an email you have read but need to refresh your memory. That has happened to me more than once in my email use career.

I have managed to open a BT Internet account in Windows 8 mail. However I cannot get it to create folders for different emails which I want to file. With Windows Vista I used Windows mail as an email client - this helped to file all emails appropriately. As far as I can make out, if I open Outlook or Windows Live/Hotmail accounts I would end up with a different email address which I do not want. I am extremely confused by the entire process. Can anyone shed light into my darkness ?

Answer:email client in Windows 8

If you're looking for the desktop e-mail client that's the replacement for Vista's Windows Mail (and Outlook Express) then "Windows Live Mail" is what you need and you can find it here. You can also import your old messages and contacts if you wish.

This seems to be a hard topic that many of  us cant understand. Espcially if you are a 73 old dummie, like me. I have a older computer with windows 7 on it and I think it might be on its last leg so I am trying to set another used computer I bought with windows 7 on it.  When I try to respond to a ad on Craigs list it says no client email set up.   So here goes, I will try and explain it the best I can.  I did set up a hot mail account, but dont use it. Dont know if windows live has been downloaded to it or not.  When I signed up for a computer service provider years ago, I went with Wal-Mart which provided a disc that automatically downloaded and cost $9.95 a month. (no high speed in my area at that time, had a computer with XPon it)  This worked fine and is very simple and easy for seniors to understand. Finally windows 7  came out and it no longer supported it.  by then high speed internet was available in my area, so I went with it. Provided by Windstream.net  (they set up a email account for it too but I didnt like it) I know that the wmconnect was supported by Netscape and now AOL shows up when I log on to my wmconnect.  I still liked wm connect so    a friend set up Windows 7 so when I log on to my email  it went to my wmconnect.  I have used this for about 5 years and works fine.

What email client would you most recommend for a senior who is new to computing and wants to send some basic email? I was figuring she'd probably just use Outlook Express since it's already on the computer and it's integrated with Windows, but although I haven't used it for awhile myself, I think it may be somewhat confusing for a new computer user. I was thinking maybe I could find some kind of theme for Thunderbird, but again, it may be somewhat confusing. I found FamilyMail, but it appears that their website is gone. Any suggestions? Free would be best.

Answer:Best Email Client For Seniors

Have you considered browser based webmail? Or is there a reason you you want a client? Possibly so that emails can be composed off line then sent? Just wondering what all the specific needs are, beyond the preference of free, to help refine the possibilities.

Hello, I'm a newbie here but from browsing the site, this looks like a good place to find help with my problem.

A few days ago, I got whacked by "Antivirus 2010". Luckily I was able to get rid of it w/Malwarebytes and there does not seem to be a trace of it left on my system.

Unfortunately, after the attack I've run into a problem where images no longer appear in my email. This is not just an Outlook 03 problem. I've tried Thunderbird and Incredimail as well. All have the same issue. Just shows the red X for any images.

I'm running Vista Home Premium SP2 on a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. and have tried all of the following w/out any luck:
Repairing Outlook

Uninstalling and reinstalling Outlook & Thunderbird

Removing the temp files for Outlook from the folder listed in the reg key (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security)

Temporarily disabled Norton Internet Security

Checked all settings in all email clients related to security & images

Checked setting on my email host. My domain is set up thru Simplehost & the other two email addresses on the domain are not having any problems.

Uninstalled Malwarebytes after removing "Antivirus 2010"

I'm really at a loss here. It seems something got switched off in a security setting somewhere but I just can't seem to find it. I appreciate any help you can provide. If there's other information that will be helpful, let me know.

Thanx in adva... Read more

I have an ADSL connection but use BT internet (now partied with Yahoo) for my email and newsgroups. However, Bt-yahoo has become a real pain and its becoming a task just sending mail despite following their instructions to the letter.

I am just about to give up and would like to know of any other ISP's I can log into just for an Email address and newsgroups I can actually use !

thanks in advance !
 

Answer:problems with Email client

I'm confused, is BT/Yahoo your DSL provider? You can keep using them if they provide you with a reliable connection. You can get your email from anywhere...hotmail, fastmail, oddpost, etc...newsgroups might be a bit tougher...if you don't mind using a client, look up "free nntp" in google and you should get a list of newsgroup servers.

Just to say thanks for the advice and help on IE on my son's new laptop. He has advised me of another "problem"..."I get the message (Either there is no default email client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run microsoft outlook and set it as the default mail client), every time i turn the machine on.". He says he doesn't want to run microsoft outlook!. He uses Tiscalli by the way, and I have guided him through setting OE as his default, but what I have told him doesn't appear to remove this message. Could anyone help - even if it appears to be very basic!Cheers!Any advice would be much appreciated

Answer:"EMail Client" Messages

Is MS Outlook installed?If so, set it as default, reboot and then set OE as default. That should cure things.

Hi,

I just got a new computer with windows 10 and set up the email client. I cannot find an option that makes the client actaully download email from the email server (verizon). Is there such an option in Windows 10? If not, is there another mail client available to use?

Thanks

Answer:windows 10 email client

You have to download it from Microsoft. It's called Windows Live mail. Here's the link.

Hi everyone: I need to be able to choose my default email client to Outlook if possible so I can have it work ok with an application that needs to 'see' the default email client in order to send emails via it
(It sends invoices as attachment and is a Filemaker runtime solution).
It is not showing any email client in 'default programs'
Any suggestions gratefully received as I'm banging my head on this one!
Kind Regards,
Pete

Answer:Win 10 &amp; 7 email client missing

Hi Pete.

When you say Outlook I just want to be sure we are talking the same thing.

There is the Windows 10 Mail app. (some have even referred to this as Outlook.)

There is the Outlook mail app that you can install on Windows 10 and phones.

There is Outlook.com which is a web portal access through a browser or other mail client.

and finally there is Outlook 20xx that is either part of Office you purchase or Office 365 that you lease.

Which Outlook do you have?
Ken
