Hi everybody,

I'd like to ask your experience regarding mail applications on MacBook.

Little background info:

I switched to Mac last November and had a lot of headache with transferring my mail data from PC. Finally I used Thunderbird as a platform where my former Outlook pst-s were transferred on PC and then loaded into a Thunderbird on Mac. So far I have been using Thunderbird on my MacBook (I was angry with Microsoft, so Entourage was not an option that time), but somehow I am not fully happy with it...

Now I am considering to switch to Mail, or to Entourage (or something else) but first I would like to know your experience (the pros and cons) to these applications. I have only POP3 mail accounts and have both Mail and Entourage already installed to my Mac. I am not planning to transfer the Thunderbird mails to the new platform, just have them remain in the old application.

Your comments are welcome!


QUOTE Thanks

I use Mail

I went through some stages of other Mail Apps but Apple Mail does everything I want at a quick & easy speed.

I'd use PostBox if it wasn't in beta. Mail works fine for me so far, I also tried Thunderbird but didn't find it as smooth.

Apple Mail.

Linking my Gmail account to Mail has been the easiest, and it's smooth, quick, and simple.
