Yeah I've always hated Eudora, hehe. Just a terrible UI IMO. Very messy. But a lot of people swear by it. No accounting for taste says I.
TB has really disappointed me. I don't think it lives up to the standard of FF really. Unless FF has the same profile and other major, known problems that I just haven't seen yet. I'm still shocked that this default profile issue exists (and yes I have run afoul of it!) and hasn't been corrected yet in all these updates.
Aside from the security issues OE is really surprisingly functional and capable. It's got its quirks too of course.
I haven't tried TheBat (I refuse to put the !
), but as much as it sounds very capable, the stuff I've heard from many other users, both lovers and haters, doesn't entice me much. It sounds like one of those programs you either love or hate, and even those who love it see these awful problems in it, but tolerate it because everything else is just so great. There are few programs I really stand for that with. Opera is one of them.
Speaking of which, maybe I should give M2 a try again. My only concern is that 2+GB of mail would slow down my browser too much so I'd rather have a slow email client but zippy browser.
