    ...as I refuse to contemplate Outlook on my desktop (to say nothing of Mac & Linux users), what do people think of using something like FinchSync to syncronise with Thunderbird?

    Flexmail is the best email program out there bar none. In line HTML is all I have to say.

    Yes, but it isn't a PIM is it. Contact/address book & calendar sync are the bits that are missing if you don't do Outlook.

    When's the last time any outlook viruses made it big. Was it Iloveyou, annakornokova? The main vulnerability these days is between the monitor and the chair, and its usually to Nigerian millionaires and member extenders.

    We use Lotus Notes because:
    1) Scalable
    2) Bullet Proof
    3) Integrated DB2 capability language (We can make web-based DB forms in seconds that integrate with email).

    True enough! But what about stability of the program & database then? My current desktop email client has all my emails sent and received back to [...checks...] April 1995. Several GB. Know anyone who's managed to keep an Outlook database going that long, without restores (except for machine changes, etc)?

    Fair enough. I'm no outlook admin, and there is no point in changing for the sake of changing. That software on the top looks very interesting to me. I'm surprised more Mac users dont use it. I just dont want people to be guided by old experiences, thats all. The security landscape is changing rapidly.
