I would have loved to hear which features OE offered which were unavailable
elsewhere, e.g. KNode or Thunderbird heaviily loaded with extensions.
Outlook Express and Outlook are not stable applications. KNode, on the other
hand, has only crashed about 4 times for me in the past 2.5 years. I
composed nearly 10,000 messages in that period of time and will never expect
the same reliability from neither Outlook Express nor the O/S it sits atop
and thus dependent on throughout its operation.
This discussion probably takes us off topic. There are entire newsgroups that
are dedicated to the choice of a newsreader.
