What app do you use and why?<br><br>I was using Claris E-mailer for years, then switched to Netscape's built-in mail. Then when Outlook Express shipped for Mac, I switched to that. Obviously when Office started shipping with Entourage, I switched to that. However with Jaguar being released I switched to Mail.app and have been happy ever since.<br><br>I still think Entourage is the best "all-around" PIM, it's way too much for my needs. With Apple improving Mail.app and iCal & address book getting updates, I think it will probably end up being the #1 e-mail app on the Mac within a year or two.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I use Mozilla's built in mail for the main reason it's there.<br>I use it for my Cox account mostly family related so I dont have to worry about spam as of yet.<br>I like Mail app and use it when I register harware/software and ect.<br>That way when I get spamed I can bounce it back.<br><br>
i followed your progression almost exactly sans the claris emailer app. netscape mail, OE, entourage, and now mail.app. i like(d) entourage the best for email (and i don't include all of the additonal features -- e.g., calendar). i will continue to use Mail.app, but i hope it gets some things pretty soon that i liked about entourage. it's early in its development and i'll hang around.<br><br>i always wanted to try mailsmith by barebones, but they always seemed to have an issue with imap (i think). i just think barebones would make it highly customizable and lightweight with heavyweight features. just a guess though.<br><br>in addition to the mainstays above, i tried many popular and not so popular email apps along the way; i just settled for the apps above.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
I've followed your path almost exactly, except that I started w/Eudora. I keep Entourage loaded in order to sync a few Palm apps — like Vindigo, but as soon as iSync is fully baked, I'll install it and possibly dump Entourage altogether.<br><br>

Going back in memory, I started using email with CompuServe. Then, moved to QuickMail and QuickMail Pro clients.. Claris Em@iler was next.. Followed my Netscape Communicator... I currently use Mail.app<br><br><br>http://waleedsgallery.biz
I really miss Claris Em@iler. I used that for years. I switched to Eudora for a while because it used a UNIX friendly mail format (I was anticipating the switch to OS X at the time.) But when I got OS X, Eudora didn't really do it for me and I've been using Mail.app ever since.<br><br>I wish someone would resurrect Em@iler for OS X - that would be great.<br><br>
oh yeah, when i did some work at the university of kansas, they had us using quickmail pro clients...the only thing i liked about it was i could send an email to someone else using the client on our network and decide later to retract the email or edit it prior to their seeing it. otherwise, i was happy to move on. ;-)<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
I used to use Outlook Express on OS9, then Entourage for OSX until about a year ago or so and then I switched to Mail.app full time. <br><br>My goal is to be as free of M$ as possible <br><br><br>[color:red]Don't make me open this on you!</font color=red><br>
