Go get gmail. Set it up for pop access and use windows mail there ya go.
Btw gmail is free!
Msn: lights-rage at hotmail.com
Note: the irc is ssl, so you will need an ssl enabled irc client. just
contact me for help with that.

Subject: [Nfbmo] Best email system for screen readers
In accordance with the Law of the Inevitability of Behavioral Change
("People will continue to do what they are doing until it is more painful to
continue than it is to change") I have finally decided that AOL is simply
too painful to continue to subject myself to it's intrusive commercialism
than it is to learn something new.
What do y'all find to be the best email program, client, etc.? I have
a high speed DSL, a reasonably powerful processor, substantial memory and
plenty of disk space.
I use JAWS.
Features I want:
1. No huge all-inclusive environment - AOL takes up a huge amount of
memory, space and crashes VISTA.
2. Ability to perform the same function on groups of messages (delete, keep
as new, move to folder, etc.) This can be done in AOL but it takes forever.
Worse, if I accidentally click or hit enter on any part of any email, the
post opens up and all the checkboxes are cleared - ya gotta start all over
3. Ability to easily reply and forward messages without JAWS going
otu of forms mode.
4. Hopefully there are no monotonous notices that a housewife lost 30
pounds by eating nothing but her toenails eppearing as an entry in the list
of functions such as New Mail, Old Mail, IMs, Sent, Deleted Mail, Dieting
Houswife, Contacts, Brad and Angelina adopt a gorilla, Calendar, Folders and
Teeth sandblasting toothpaste.
5. I already have a yahoo account, a g-mail account and several accounts
from my cable company (Charter) - anybody prefer one of them?
6. If anyone knows of a good source for learning about accessibility of
email systems, that would be helpful.
I will appreciate any and all suggestions - other than those who tell
me where I can shove my email - unless they're really funny.
