    I downloaded the email client Thunderbird and its quite good with some good features. The only thing is, with outlook, I can see my contacts on the left hand side and one click and I have a new message with their email address already inserted. Is there a way to have the contact list on the left hand side in thunderbird?

    Cheers.

    I use thunderbird as well, have for some time.

    I am not sure how to make the contacts appear on the left. When you open a new mail, the contacts appear on the left though.

    Oh, and there is this: POP Goes The Gmail. Although, taking my Gmail offline and onto my harddrive is somewhat counter to the purpose of Gmail. But, I too do like to have a centralized repository so to speak. Oh well... ;)

    Thanks, g220, but neither site made much sense to me.

    I mean, I don't even know how to set up Outlook or Thunderbird...

    Trotter, YahooPOPs is pretty much like a "razzle-dazzle" play. Where one end of the software presents itself to Yaoo as an HTTP client, but presents itself as a POP3 server to your email client. In Outlook go to Tools --&gt; Accounts --&gt; Add --&gt; Mail and then add the client per the setup for YahooPOPs. This way Outlook thinks it is getting data from a POP3 server and Yahoo thinks a browser is getting emails from it.

    The POP Goes The Gmail still seems to be pretty buggy. Apparently you must have .NET Framework installed for the ap to work.

    OK. I'll give it a try tomorrow, and let you know how it goes.

    Thanks.

    .NET?

    :eek: even another reason to steer clear of the privacy obliterating Gmail.

    Trotter, In the Yahoo settings, see *mail forwarding*...you can get your yahoo mail forwarded to your Home account in Outlook...thats what I do.

    Thanks Pastor K...I decided to use incredimail now instead of outlook or thunderbird ...in the past I had problems with it but it seems to work great now. It has so many features too, I really like it.

    Hey superdave, it's actually the POP Goes the Gmail ap that chokes without .NET not Gmail itself. However, Gmail does require ActiveX, so your point may still be valid ;)

    I am really starting to like Thunderbird and Firefox. And, i'm REALLY loving my g-mail. It's the best e-mail system i've ever used.
