opera's M2 for me, it seems so logical to have the email program as part of the web browser, anytime i'm online (which is a lot) my mail is there "live" all the while.

easy to set up (for my needs anyway) and works a treat.

 

just thinking out loud here but being as opera is one application / program, does that mean it uses less resources to run both browser and mail simultaniously?

or is it just a great big hunk of bloatware?

 

oh and the new version of the "free" opera is now adbar free! woot.

Thunderbird (ex Evolution) I only switched because Evolution got so messed up, but I do like the spam filter.

 

Having said that Thunderbird is a pain to set up.

I use .... firefox!

I'm a a gmail user so really I could use any browser, Firefox just happens to be my browser of choice, in large part because I can use it both in windows and Linux.

 

If I were to use pop3, I'd probably use KMail, just because I'm a KDE user.

 

I fact, I would like to fetch my gmail mail into a linux mailbox nightly using a cron job, so that I can read it offline using a client like KMail.

 

I used to use Thunderbird to pick up my gmail. They do have config pages if you've not already checked/used for the cron job, or for a mail client usage.

How come you found it a pain to configure? It worked within minutes for me :P

 

The only thing is when I copy my email off, rebuild the machine, and copy it back, I have to reset the spam filter.

I'm an Opera user so i use it's all in one clients for news feeds, email, and surfing the web. It also helps me to avoid installing a lot of software that i won't use very often (Kontact). I due install Kmail sometimes though, just because i used it before switch to Opera full time.

Well you are obviously far smarter than me :cheeky:

The set up from scratch was actually ok (no harder than Outlook) but when upgrading or installing a new OS and using the same mailbox and settings (or importing mail from another Thunderbird install) it is a real pain in the arse. The only way I found was to symlink to the old directory and manually amend the conf file.
