Default microsoft email clients

Any of you gone from using Qualcomm (not Mozilla) Eudora to one of the Microsoft email clients? Thoughts?

I used to use Eudora, my wife still does; I switched to Pegasus and more recently to Outlook. Other than it, MS has a history of introducing new clients and ditching others every so often, so I wouldn't waste my time on any of the toys-of-the-moment.

Outlook's ok; as an email client it has a few advantages over Pegasus/Eudora; Pegasus has advantages over Outlook. The calendar in Outlook is so so, not really as good as I was used to with Ecco, but it synchs over a USB cable with my phone, which is the main reason I'm using it.

I use Eudora (the old version--7whatever) for my cserve addy and my domain addy--works fine in Win7/64bit--and I use Thunderbird primarily for my mail.com addy (via IMAP) although I do have cserve and my verizon email also defined for backup although I don't use my verizon account at all. I've never used any Microsoft email software and have absolutely no plans to...

Oh...and I have 2 gmail accounts but I don't use them really at all--one was when I worked for google and I had to use it and I created the other one for reasons I don't remember now. I do check them every now and again...

STEVE / TERRIE:

I'm not sure of the versions ... IIRC Eudora 7 was the last version. With my impeccable sense of timing, I bought a copy for my wife *just* before they set it loose, gave it away for free. Ah well. It was cheap and she's happy. WinWin.

IIRC, they chopped her up and fed the bits to Mozilla.

If you like the way Eudora works but want something with more power, Pegasus is still being supported.

It's not that difficult (and it's far easier to figure out how to DO stuff in Peg than in Outlook; Peg comes with good help. Outlook ... well. Good luck.)

I switched from a very old copy of Eudora to Peg with very little trouble.

Qualcomm Eudora is no longer supported by Qualcomm. Mozilla is/was making a Eudora-like version of Thunderbird, but I don't know what's going on now. I am still using the final version of Qualcomm Eudora in 64bit Win7.

It sounds like you may be clicking on the incorrect icon. To retrieve mail in Eudora, you need to click on the "Check Mail" icon or File > Check Mail or ctrl-m...
