    Callender, I like the look of that program, now for the 'silly' questions,
    can I transfer all my email address's into it? will it take my Plusnet address? and it says, sign up, do you not download it? if so where can I download it? silly question, but you can write emails in it??

    - - - Updated - - -

    Thanks Callender, think you might have answered all questions , but where can I download it from or do I just 'sign up'??

    Have changed time, so hope all is 'happy' now XXX

    It's webmail so used via your browser. Nothing to download or install.

    Re: Plusnet email. Just try to add your account using your username and password and see if it's accepted.

    It's a mine-field, why oh why did Microsoft not have WLM in Win10, I am trying to get on with eM Client, but can't get the contacts book looking 'right', also I find it takes a long time opening, have icon on bottom tast bar, but seems I have to click it at least twice for it to open, then wait ages to see if any new mail.
    I also use to use Mailwasher, that told me instantly if I had any new mail and I could delete from there what I did not want.
    Think I am just a moaner who want's what she can't have, am gratful for all the advice and will look into it all.
    Hi there

    If you can source a version of Windows XP you could run this as a Virtual Machine and then use Outlook Eexpress -- IMO one of the simplest and most convenient of pretty well all email clients I've ever seen and used --does what it has to do -- has IMAP, no limit to the number of accounts etc.

    Outlook itself on modern versions of Office probably has too many things people don't actually need.

    Webmail things usually are a BIG PAIN -- slow, and usually riddles with adverts.

    I've used GMX as a backup provider for email for more than ten years, myself, have never had anything go wrong and it's quick to use Online. I give out My gmx email address to sites on the web that I'm not 100% sure of and then collect the emails that come back through. This means that they emails go through three layers, GMX has it's own spam filter, it then goes through the spam and junk filters at Gmail, and a few of my own filters to sort items and store them. I also have Bitdefender total security pro, which scans all incoming items for nasties

    Not sure if it's still an option but ... You used to be able to create a number of linked GMX addresses from one account, which may suit your need to send out Newsletters as you could set up emails containing your name and the club name so people recieving can easily identify where it's coming from,

    Hi there


    Nothing wrong with Outlook express on a VM running XP and using IMAP for the email server -- and unlike a lot of modern email clients you can configure it properly as well with sensible configuration screens --a lot of the new stuff which does the "Auto config" really goes bonkers if you have different inbound / outbound mail servers, different logon id, passwords etc and if your email address isn't in a "pre-canned" database of common email addresses.

    No limit also to the number of different accounts you can have plus of course you can send from any of them too.

    If I hadn't got it free from work Office 2019 I would still be using OE on an XP VM. (you don't have to use browsers etc on the VM if you are bonkersly worried about security -- your HOST can provide decent security via the Internet gateway etc).
