[HM] email programs

I always try to use Apple products if they are well made, but 
unfortunately Apple's mail program has a flaw that is unacceptable to 
me. When you send long links to Windows users it truncates them and the 
links are flawed. If you want to feel really embarrassed, send a long 
link to a Windows friend using Mail.app, and the next time you talk to 
them watch them snicker. So I was forced to try a different program, and 
I am now using Thunderbird. It has it flaws, but at least I am the only 
one who sees them.

If you try Thunderbird, make sure you download the latest nightly build. 
Since it is still being developed, each night they upload the final 
product for the day with all it's fixes. Check back every month for a 
revised program with some of the bugs fixed. If you download the one 
they advertise as the newest one on Version Tracker, you will be getting 
a few months old program.

Here is the nightly build page. Scroll to the bottom and the last one 
with the April 17th date on it is the one.

The version of Outlook Express (which wants OS 9.x) that came with thus new machine is cumbersome, and going to the .mac website to retrive email is very slow and awkward.
