ThunderBird from the Mozilla Stable is very good - it is frequently updated for both features and compatibility.

Calypso is also very good: Now known as courier

Eudora is pretty good, and free if you are willing to put up with the adverts

Thenderbird is currently the tops of the alternatives out there

Hotmail, Yahoo, Google Mail, (I nearly said G-Mail!), and probably half a dozen others.

Tnanks for that, will give them a try...

was thinking offline email and news. Outlook express doesn`t allow deleting messages without opening them, (or at least I can`t see a way, and I just don`t like it.
Got spoilt by being with `Demon` for a while, and using their Turnpike which I got to know how to use. Don`t think you can use Turnpike without being with Demon, or I`d get that since I know it.

Turn off the Preview Pane

I use Outlook so cant tell you exactly but!

Click View > Preview Pane.

wee eddie - "Hotmail, Yahoo, Google Mail"

Except none of those are e-mail programs (or "clients" as they are called)

-

Outlook Express

View menu, layout, Uncheck Show Preview Pane. this switches off the Preview Pane. Now double click a message to open. Single click and hit delete to delete.

WARNING - If you open a message and then use the Delete button in the message it will automatically open th next message.
