I just bought a mac, and MS Office to go with it, figuring it would make the transition from PC land easier. Entourage has proved to be rather cumbersome and somewhat buggy, however, so I have been using Mail instead. It's a good email program but is fairly basic. I am used to something with more features, like Outlook. I have heard about Eudora, Thunderbird, and others, but know nothing about them. Any suggestions, recommendations, etc?

Thanks!

I have used Eudora since version 4 and am adamant that it's the best email client ever - but it won't work with Leopard (one reason I stick with Tiger).

Which sort-of leaves you with Thunderbird, a popular email client, which is an emulation (I think it's called) of Eudora anyway. I find TB to be quirky, certain features still being worked on, but it's good enough. Others will have their different views.
