There's also a handy little search box, and you can insert smilies into your mail too. I think I like it

Best hope it doesn't start going wrong then or it could turn into the first 18 rated one

I love it, you can set it to put all your sent items from different addresses in different folders, something you just can't do in Outlook.

Does it also come with those features that let viruses take over your PC?

I've used Turnpike for years and it's been fine for me, a tad old though.

Just to double check it is Outlook you have dumped and not Outlook express?

Express, I use Outlook proper for my work stuff, and now Thunderbird for my personal mail

Important point this, I use Outlook at home and it is a lot better than express.

I've found evolution to be pretty good, both at work and home. It's linux only.

I was not think in terms of what to get if starting afresh, but simply in terms of the incentive to change.

Yes, Outlook is indeed a much more fully featured programme than Outlook express and Thunderbird. How come you don't use a Linux client for your mail?

We have Outlook at work but it is rubbish for filtering (as far as I can make it work), and I wouldn't want to have it at home because I'd (a) have to pay a fair bit and (b) don't have the same virus and spam protection at home as at work so anything that's a bit less common is surely better. I don't like Turnpike but admit I've not used it much.
