    IncrediMail is not a good app to have on your system, seen by many security apps as a PUP.
    Also was told it was a torrent or something like that all I know is it did slow sometimes right down and take ages to load and sometimes freeze
    When posted about it on their forum got told nothing they could do about it and to switch back to an earlier version
    So was glad Mail App came along as no trouble with that at all

    I've been hearing conflicting information about it, but most of it's negative.
    In your Post #5, you said " I guess maybe it was the reason I had to reinstall WinME about once a month. "

    So to make sure if Incredimail is the culprit or not, use this link to completely remove Incredimail.

    See if you still have to reinstall WinME after that.
    You can always reinstall Incredimail if it is not the culprit.

    The website makes a simple thing like reading email unnecessarily complicated, and I only have or need 1 internet device.
    Can you explain how having one client on everything makes it complicated.

    I suppose that, if I had multiple devices, the GMail site might actually be simpler, but a local client automatically looks for and downloads mail periodically, and when it's working properly, it notifies me automatically.

    If you read one email on say your smartphone and then went on to desktop gmail you would find that it has been synced and marked as read. Gmail on all the devices should be in the same state.

    That's just the same behaviour you get with a desktop client, except with a desktop client you have the ability to have lots of inbox's and providers at the same time.

    I was just about to post that this is a function of the IMAP protocol but the boss beat me to it :)

    Thanks, but I no longer have that computer. I was talking about distant history.

    I forgot to mention that I have two e-mail providers, which makes one more advantage to a local client in my case. (I'm not sure whether client is the accepted term, but it's the term used by Thunderbird.)

    the way I work my email/Calendar is a little unusual I think.

    I have a main account, (g-Mail), which I access via Thunderbird for any major work and the web interface on the PCs when I have Firefox open, (most of the time). I also access this account from my Android devices. As these are all using the same IMAP account they are synchronised more or less instantly as I work.

    Also as my PCs and Android devices are synchronised, I always get a notification when a mail arrives, (on the PC from my phone)

    I also have a number of other accounts to perform specific tasks - these are all set to be collected into my main gMail account every few minutes so are all readable in one place. I also run many filters on incoming mail to sort them into folders for organisation - I used to do this in the desktop client but found that gMail's filters were just as good and a little quicker.

    The same sort of integration applies to my Calendar and my to-do list
