Beyond Outlook: Other Email Software

Of course Outlook and Outlook Express aren’t the only email programs you can use. In fact, some people think other email software is superior to both—and the alternatives are often free. Here are three excellent options if you’re thinking of straying.

Tip

If you have a Web-based email account like Hotmail or Yahoo!, see Sidebar 8-1 for a cool way to access it in your favorite email program.

Eudora

Before Outlook and Outlook Express, Eudora was the email program of choice for power hounds everywhere. And it’s still going strong today. Eudora has all kinds of cool features you won’t find anywhere else. For example, it can check your email before you send it using its “MoodWatch” feature, which rates the message’s level of aggression (based on a quick scan of the text), from an ice cube up to three chili peppers.
