    Windows live mail replace OE. Thunderbird is better.

    "Best" is subjective. What's best for you is whatever suits your needs. I
    ended up with Windows Live Mail. I don't exactly like it but I dislike it
    less than the others I tried. It was the only one that sorted my various
    e-mail accounts into separate folders.

    Did you try Thunderbird? That has separate folders for separate email
    accounts as well....

    I tried Live Mail as a replacement for OE but did not like it one bit.

    If you want a combined emai; and newsreader then Thunderbird is the way
    to go as far as I am concerned. I have both Tbird and Mozilla's
    Seamonkey installed and can't tell much if any difference between them
    as far as email and newsreading go. Seamonkey might be a little easier
    to set up and then again it might not.

    You won't regrest Thunderbird. Go for it.

    Windows Mail looks just like OE, including work groups, but keeps the
    messages and contacts in a different way - no more "dbx" files. I upgraded
    my Vista laptop to 32 bit W7, then put Windows Mail on it. If you Google
    for "windows mail on windows 7" you can find two files that you must run
    before you try to use Windows Mail on W7. They are named "Windows Mail.reg"
    and "Windows Mail2.reg". I've been using mine with Windows Mail ever since
    W7 came out. Since you are apparently running XP you will need to do the
    Outlook Express to Windows Mail import process.

    I didn't like Live Mail either. I have never used OE so I can't
    compare them. I've use Agent for both newsgroups and email since 1995
    and IMO nothing else compares.

    My problem is that my main e-mail address is Hotmail (and has been for many
    years). MS has such a tight grip on it that I can't funnel the @hotmail.com
    into a separate folder. Last time I tried TBird it only worked sporadically
    with Hotmail.

    Have to agree with you there, I've done the same and it's still to be
    beat.

    Hotmail can be downloaded straight into T'bird now that they've
    enabled pop.

    Settings are;
    pop3.live.com
    Port; 995

    I know; I've done that. But it won't download all the separate folders I've
    created over time. I wish Hotmail would allow me to forward so I could make
    a gradual transition to GMail.

    I don't understand.....

    In TB, each account has a section about where to put
    messages.....

    ......and then there's also mail filters, which will allow you
    to move/copy messgaes when received to, ti looks like, any
    folder at all.

    Are you saying that the message filters don't work using a
    Hotmail POP configuration ?

    Ah..I see, never used Hotmail, so I'm not sure what to suggest. If you
    moved the mail that you want into your general inbox would that maybe
    allow you to download them. Once you've got them make new folders in
    T'bird.

    I tried Thunderbird but couldn't get it to work and the people who are
    supposed to help are damn snooty and would not explain things. They were
    the same when I tried out the web browser a couple of years ago as well.
    Windows Live mail takes a bit of getting used to after OE but it is OK for
    Usenet and would be fine if the windows could be arranged - I can't imagine
    why they didn't allow that as it is a trivial thing to program. ( I must
    admit though, after OE it is a big relief not to get 100 spams a day on my
    new ISP - don't know how long that will last but the anti spam looks good.)
