Any opinions on Courier email client?
« on: March 14, 2006, 11:07:09 AM »
Since they are giving away free licenses for the time being, I was wondering if any of you had an opinion on Courier email client, the same client that used to be called Calypso email:

What are the pros/cons of the program?  Feel free to bash it or give a glowing review.  Thanks!

I used Calypso for a couple years, switched to Courier several months ago.  I think it's fantastic!  In particular, I like the extensive filtering capabilities and overall configurability.  It doesn't crash or do unexpected things.  The documentation improved a lot between Calypso and Courier.  There's a large Calypso group on Yahoo and a Courier forum at http://www.windowsbbs.com

I like being able to preview incoming emails in text mode.

My wife and I really enjoy using Courier.  I'd encourage you to give it a try.

Excellent!  Thanks for the go-ahead.  I personally use the Bat, but this is for my mother, it's her first email experience...I just wanted to know if it was a decent program, since Outlook is usually out of the question for me if I can avoid it.
