A Preferred E-Mail Program


I collect spam and so that I get early identification of the various scams on the Internet.

As I get about 6,000 messages every day, I find that some e-mail programs just buckle under the strain. Thunderbird collapsed and just couldn’t cope. I would never touch it with a bargepole as extricating myself from the mess it left took about a week of concentrated work.

So although many here will find this heresy, I use Outlook 2003, which with it’s filters and rules, leaves me with about twenty messages a day to sort manually. There are issues, but most of the problems and how to avoid them are posted on the Internet.
