>> Hi all,
>> 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 again.
>> 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
>> 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.
