6. Email > 64. Fire Outlook and Outlook Express

Fire Outlook and Outlook Express

Contrary to popular belief, Microsoft doesn’t make the only two email programs on the planet. Eudora, Thunderbird, and Pegasus are great, free alternatives.

Strange, but true: before Outlook and Outlook Express, there was email software. I know this because I used it all the time. That email software is still around, and some believe it is superior to Outlook and Outlook Express in some ways. While many alternative email programs are out there, two of my favorites, Eudora and Pegasus, have both been around a very long time. And Thunderbird is an open source alternative that’s been developed in concert with the great Firefox browser [Hack #43] . While all of them have some drawbacks, they each have enough unique features that they might make you want to throw away Outlook and Outlook Express.
