Question: Email Client

Good day everyone.

I tried many email clients but did not come across the one I liked. I remember years ago there was good one called olxwin used for BBS mail and newsgroups i believe it is no more available that I searched for it but could not catch it.

Can you please name good (if not the best -:)) free one is preferred of course -:).

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.)

Is it possible to set my online Comcast email client as my default email client in Vista? If so, any explanation on how this is done would be appreciated.
I just spent a few minutes online with a rep. from Comcast who couldn't answer the question.
Thank you.

I use thunderbird to connect to my ARMY AKO email account. I noticed the majority of the time, the client has difficulty completing sending email. (Though some gets through without timing out.) IF I go directly to the website and use their email I have no problems at all. What could be causing this? I'd rather use my client email program than to have to go the email site. Bear in mind this only happens sometimes, more frequently than I'd like, and I am also overseas.
 

Answer:email client / online client difference

not familiar with thunderbird, but have you checked the usual settings against those listed at your army email service?
-POP3/SMPT/etc settings and addresses
-secure login/passwords
-firewall(s), ports etc..

Hello, I always use web-based email via the browser at home. I do not use an email client(well in the office we have Outlook). I'd like to use Thunderbird at home with a Gmail account that can be used by the kids. Now I am using Avira IS 2012 and would like to make it scan emails through it's mailguard component. I have seen Thunderbird work with Avast IS on my brother's pc but I see that for it to scan all emails the SSL/TSL should be deactivated. I was asking the tech guys at the office about email clients, digital certificates etc and they only remarked "google it"...wow... So I came here....Now my questiosn are: a. Is it safe to disable SSL/TSL in an email client? In the office we have that(with Norton Enterprise) and I see an indicator at the bottom of the email message that it was scanned by Norton. b. Can there be an application that can allow me to have SSL/TSL at the same time have Avira scan my emails...? I searched google and found out that in Avira it also has to be disabled to let it scan all emails. c. SSL/TSL is encryption right..? Does not using encryption in email okay..? I mean at home. 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). If Thunderbird wants connections via other ports other than the default ones...should I allow it or not..?e. Can an email client be run inside a sandbox? Is it sane enough or crazy..? Just... Read more

Answer:Thunderbrid email client, Comodo Email Certificates, Avira IS 2012 questions

I would highly recommend that you keep TLS/SSL enabled this makes sure that your password and user credentials are not sent in the clear.

if the AV needs to have this disabled then its not a good AV..

The ports are on the setup page for Gmail: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_Gmail_with_Thunderbird_and_Mozilla_Suite

Digital Certs are expensive to create and use, and only vital for businesses and not home users.

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

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!
 

Answer:BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

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

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.
McAfee AV is on and up to date.

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.

When a receive an email and it has an attachment ie a Photo, and I save the attachment I've noticed that the downloaded file ends up being " Read Only ". If I download the same attachment from the Outlook Server, it does not have the " Read Only " attribute marked. Also I tried downloading the same attachment via my Thunderbird Client, it also downloads the file, but the " Read only " attribute is NOT set.

Does anybody know how to turn off this feature OFF ?

Question: email client

Hello

To change my email client do I click on control panel>default programs>associate a file type>mail to?

My current one is WLM but I don't know what happens when I click "Change program"!

Will I have a choice like Windows Outlook.com?

**The reason I am asking is because if I click on 'set your default programs' as I usually do and highlight a program to set as default, no other mail is there - just WLM. I have Gmail, 2 Live accounts, Comcast account, and WLM all in my WLM desk account. I was hoping to make the Outlook.com application the email client but maybe it cannot be done.
I have not synchronized and do not know if it is necessary to get Outlook.com to appear on the default program page.

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. I selected it and it asked me to enter my username and password. I wasn't sure if it would work but I put in my hotmail information and it worked. 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? I don't really know what I am doing but I do know I don't want a bunch of folks able to read my personal email. I have looked everywhere I know to look.

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.

Any email program that will pull all these different email address in and open them?

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.

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 have Windows 10 pro and have been using Windows Mail; unfortunately it is erratic syncing and I just lost a valuable folder. It seems ok at times and I like its simplicity because I am at an average tech level.

Awkward as it may sound, I use gmail because of my phone but it too has difficult folders.
I have a MS account because I run Windows and it too has fickle folders.
So I use the folders in my ISP Comcast account as it is dependable as far as folders go.
All of my contacts and places like forums and doctors tetc have my MS account as the default.

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 currently us Outlook Express for my email client. I often times get email with lots of nice images, links and almost looks like a Web site but it's an email. I was told that I would need to use something other than Outlook Express to do this type of email.

2 questions:

1. Any suggestions of email clients that any of you use to do this type of emailing would be appreciated.

2. Can I use more than one email client (of course only one would be set as the default client), such as Outlook Express and some other client - then switch between the two?

Hi,

I have just upgraded my PC to Windows 7 and note that there is no email client. I have installed Windows Live Mail and I hate this programme with a vengenance. My wife refuses to use the PC until I get rid of WLM.

We have a laptop which still has Vista and Windows Mail which we are used to and is excellent. We really do not want two different email programmes so is there a way to install the Vista Windows Mail on my Win 7 PC? We can transfer the necessary files from the laptop if need be.

Step by step instructions would be appreciated.

Axel

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.

[RANT]In spite of all the wonderful new features in Windows 7, the decision to exclude an email client has to be the most assenine ever. Because of this, I have gone back to Vista for now. If I wanted a third party email program, I would have done it already. If I wanted to use web based email, I would have switched years ago.

I did try the Windows Mail from Vista hack in seven and even though it let me send and receive emails it was not 100% functional. Besides, I should not have to hack a new OS to get feature that has been included in every version prior to this one.

I purchased four copies of Windows 7, installed on three computers, removed from 2, the remaining computer has office 2007 so seven will stay on it. I just hope this gets fixed in first service pack, if not this could be the end of the road for me and MS. Yes, it is that big of a deal breaker to me.[End RANT]

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.

Hello,

I have been weaning myself away from my Outlook dependency. Especially for tasks, it was not doing what I needed.

Now, I would like to find a new email client. I like the performance that a desktop application has, but I would like to find something a litttle bit more pleasing than Outlook...

For example, when I was beta testing the Office 2010 suite, I was able to send messages to the developers, and when the message was sent, a piece of paper was created with the message, then folded up into an envelope and swished off the screen. I would like an email client that does these types of animations.

Is there anything out there to consider, besides Thunderbird? I also want something that has an easy way to back up the files and store emails in folders.

Thank you for any advice!

Hey all.

I've used Thunderbird in the past for my home computer, and I use Microsoft Outlook at work.

I want to manage 3-4x e-mail addresses at home, but here's the thing... I'd prefer it NOT download and store all my e-mails locally. I just installed two new hard drives and was looking in AppData for things to move to the updated computer, and noticed that Thunderbird had about 8gb of files hanging around.

I know that you can delete e-mails in Thunderbird and 'compact' it and it will delete them then, but I don't tend to delete e-mails, and I have thousands.

Is there a client that just organizes things for you but otherwise doesn't take up space on your desktop? I know this would have to be IMAP instead of POP3, but Thunderbird supports IMAP and still does this.

It's possible I just have the settings wrong, however. I've heard good things about EM Client & Inky, but I don't know enough about it to judge.

Please suggest a FREE / PAID email client. Follwing are the basic requirements.

1. I use multiple email accounts.
2. I format my mails by opening the source as OE has limited WYSIWYG capability.
3. It would be great if I can preview the headers and delete directly from server.
4. Ability to use Digital Signatures would be great.
5. I don't use MS Office. So spell-checker in OE doesn't work. So a spell checker would be nice.

Trying to help my SIL. Have not had a chance to look for myself but here is what happened: she was trying to close an Excel spreadsheet and an IE 11 pop-up said it could not perform the operation because the default email client was not correctly installed. She clicked ok and shut down her PC. During shutdown, she got a message saying 47 programs had to be closed. After restart, she opened Excel and her changes had been saved so apparently everything worked ok despite the error message. I have no idea what the 47 open programs were. She does not have an email client on her PC as she does all of her email by logging onto her Verizon webmail account. She has Google Chrome set as her default browser. We had to do this because IE 11 will not communicate with Verizon for some unknown reason. Apparently this problem (IE 11/Verizon) is well known and discussed by both Verizon and MS. From what I have read, she will have to install an email client such as Win Live Mail and set that as default. However, what has changed that started this problem? Perhaps a recent Win 7 update? Also, do you think setting Chrome as default browser is causing the problem? Finally, what does IE 11 have to do with Excel? I am pretty sure she has MS Office 2010 Home and Student which does not have (I think) Outlook. Thanks.

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?

Hi,

I am in a need of an email client (outlook/thunderbird etc) with specific features,

I have several domain names and email accounts that take ages to administer - but if i use outlook / thunderbird I end up with a mailbox for every account - or the emails seems to not download from servers with the same mail address, and inadvertantly get lost! e.t.c

Whenever I click on one, the display name would change so I would change in back, and then if I went to my email list, it would change again so I had to correct it again. Always back and forth. Also, I always have it on 'Detailed Address Cards" but often, for no reason at all some of them would not show the address until I clicked them open. Needless to say, I am getting fed up.

At my work latley, we have encountered a problem. See my boss gets TONS of emails that he needs to keep for records, and apparently Outlook 2003 only can hold 2Gigs of information according to Microsoft tech support. Which is very stupid and pointless in my opinion.

I have used Thunderbird at home for some time now, but I'm not sure if it has a storage limit either, I would love to use Thunderbird over Outlook.

The problem we encountered with outlook in that my boss exceeded the 2Gig limit and all of his emails would not come through and he lost a lot of important information. We now regularly back up the emails, but he would like to store as many as he wants instead of moving them onto his hard drive. And it would be easier for me, when I go to bak it up since I won't have to look all around his hard drive. I could just drag and drop it from his Thunderbird onto our server.

So if anyone knows if Thunderbird has a limit please let me know.

- Thanks

As of the last 2-3 years I've been using Incredimail. This was mainly because of the enhanced GUI system, and most importantly, the active notifier. As long as IM is running, it will display these fancy notifiers ACROSS THE SCREEN to let me know I have an email.

However, after using IM for this long, you start to find very annoying bugs, which have gone unfixed for quite some time. Also, IM doesn't have any sort of date book etc.

Therefore I was wondering if you guys knew of a good email client which will let you know when you get mail. I know outlook and thunderbird are top candidates, but from my knowledge, they do NOT actively tell you that mail has arrived. Or, if they do, it's just a little icon on the task bar. No large visual effect, nor any sounds.

Since I don't get hundreds upon hundreds of messages, graphic/audio notifications are a must, as I don't consistently check my email every 5-10 minutes.

Also, if I'm having relay conversations with someone, it's good to know I can walk away from the pc, and with a glance at the screen or via sound, I can tell if they replied yet.

Sooo, in a nutshell, I'm looking for a good e-mail client that provides graphical/audio e-mail notifications.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Looking for a good email client

Aside from a tray icon, Thunderbird has an audible new email alert, and you can set Thunderbird to check for/download new messages as often as you'd like. I have mine set at every two minutes, but you can go down to one I'm sure.

Answer:ICS:-client email etc. OK but no web pages

I am the host on a home network and my daughter is the client. We both have XP and I connect to the internet using a USB ADSL modem. The network seems to work in all respects except that web pages are unavailable on the client computer. She receives Windows update installation notifications, can send and receive e-mail,and use Windows Messenger, so it seems as if the ICS is working but whenever she tries to open Internet Explorer she gets the "page unavailable" screen. She has tried to access several different sites (including Microsoft) so it is not just a problem with the site she is trying to access.Any suggestions please as I can't think of what to try next.Thanks

What is the best email client that is free? I had enough with Outlook Express. One minute I get an error and next minute it's all good. What the *censored* is that all about? I need to switch email clients. The only 2 things I change in the email options are to set read receipts and leave the email on the server. Whatever email someone would recommend, how do I set it in the email client? I also would like an email client that is 100% free, no shareware or anything. Just freeware. Here is the error that keeps coming on and off.The server responded with an error. Account: 'pop.rcn.com', Server: 'pop.rcn.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Cannot connect to POP server 207.172.157.20 (207.172.157.20:110), bind error 10055', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

Hi,

I recently installed mozilla firefox as an alternative to IE and Netscape (a resource hog).

I used to use Netscape mail as my email client. I don't want to use Outlook.

Can anyone recommend a good, reliable email client?

Thanks.

I've made some changes to my computer lately including reinstalling windows xp and now I cannot send email. I cannot send using Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or Calypso. I can receive ok.

One exception is that I can send emails using my cable connection using smtp.cox-internet.com. All my other accounts use mail.mydomain.com.

Thanks,
Steve M.
 

Answer:Any email client can't send...

I assume you have checked your settings in your e-mail clients? Are you using a software firewall and if so, which one?

I have tried to get Gmail to work with my email client, but it doesnt seem to work. I have tried to use tutorals from Google, and i have tried tutorials from other websites. I have two email clients that i tried to use, one is Opera, and the other one is Tunderbird. Opera and thunderbird seem to work with sending mail, but with Reciving mail, it doesnt work. Thunderbird doesnt show any mail, and Opera shows only one piece of mail that is very very old, one that I have deleted.

So what can i do to fix this problem.

Answer:Gmail and an email client?

With Opera go to your inbox and in the address bar click the 'rss' button and subscribe for feeds on it.

Hello slick8

Windows mail has been replaced with Windows Live Mail, as part of the Windows Live package. It is now an optional download and doesn't come pre-installed in Windows 7.

You can download it here:
