Not so powerful as Outlook but open source and it gets better with every version.

I use it, but I am very disappointed. Not nearly as mature/stable as its sibling, Firefox. It crashes too often, and it has many annoying bugs, which often stay unfixed for a long time. It is much slower than Outlook Express (you won't notice this on a modern machine, but don't try to run it on old hardware with of you have a large mailbox).

I'll have to agree with the previous reader in that this application has a number of annoying bugs that have been around for a really long time now. The "full headers" bug, for example, has been around for so long that now there's a third party add-on that fixes it. It's also very limited feature-wise, especially in areas other than e-mail. The address book, in particular, with its lack of LDAP write and native vcard support, is very disappointing.

But, to be honest, it's not that bad: It's a fast and stable app with an appealing simplicity and a large number of useful add-ons. It can even become an Outlook killer some day; all Mozilla has to do is fix the bugs, implement a new address book, and bundle it with Lightning.

Can't set to send emails from Hotmail server. No help anywhere.

Thunderbird is a reasonable replacement for outlook express. It will do basic emailing fine.

However it is lacking major features and compatibility to stand against outlook
