Multiple mail accounts

Hi,

I have around twenty active business e-mail accounts. I right now have them forwarding to one e-mail account. I would like to remove the forwarding and go back to "juggleing" accounts.

Which e-mail program will let you use multiple e-mail profiles but not have to setup seperate browser accounts. I use Netscape right now and have to create a seperate "user profile" for each e-mail account. Hence if I want to check the sales e-mails I would have to get out and go back into Netscape. There must be a better way.

Outlook handles multiple accounts very nicely. I have about a dozen different pop accounts and I can check them all at once and they all come into the same inbox. Also when I reply to an email it automatically sends it from the account it came in from so I don't have to worry about which address I'm sending from. I've also set up multiple inboxes and have some email sorted as it comes in depending on which address is in the TO field.

Outlook Express also is fine dealing with multiple accounts (especially versions past 5.0).

But if you want to keep the email program inside the browser......the email feature inside Opera works great. I'm not sure if there's a limit to the number of seperate accounts, but I have 8 setup now, each with their property settings/filters.

I tried Eudora for a little while. It was okay, but I kept having attachemnt issues. People were sending me perfectly good attachments of M$ type files or even .jpg or .gif and I could never use them. Came across as complete jibberish labeled simply 'attachment.' After 3 months of it, I showed Eudora the door-a.

Which version? I've used it since 4.5, and never had a problem receiving an attachment. Right now I'm using the sponsored version. One small, square ad on my desktop while using the program (hasn't ever gotten in my way), and I get all the bells and whistles of the paid version for free.

I've had problems opening attachments, but only when the attachment was genuinely incompatible with my machine. Like somebody sending Windows-only files to my Mac (like .exe, or .vbs which incidentally includes all email "viruses" these days, so it's not really a bad thing), or .doc files to my Microsoft-free home machine (nothing seems to want to open a Word file neatly, except Word itself...). Can't blame that on Eudora.

I must agree, Eudora has been tops for me on mac and PC - never had any problems with attachments. I love it.

Don't you have to constantly update Outlook on PC just to be safe?

What about Pegasus - itīs got all the features needed for professional tasks. Itīs good in multi-user managment, you can have as many people/identities as you wish.
Above all itīs free!

Definitely Eudora. I have a number of different accounts - and receive a great volume of mail. I would not be able to handle it without Eudora.

I do not have the attachment issues that somebody mentioned here. I am using version 5.1 and I have paid for the non-Sponsered version. I have been using Eudora for several years - since version 2 or 3, I believe.

I have used it for both the Mac and Windows - I prefer the Windows version, however I don't think that a better option exists for either platform.

Definitely Eudora.
