Best and Most Secure Email Program (Virus/Spam)

by gumby4 / April 8, 2008 8:02 AM PDT

Whats the best Email Program for online use that has great SPAM and Virus protection. It can be FREE or PAY.
I hate using Eudora (with my Road Runner account).
I had too many problems with Yahoo.
I started getting too much SPAM with GMAIL.
I am currently using GMX but they never answer forum
questions when I have a problem and I've been having
problems lately with the site being down.

I added POPFILE and after a little pain and training, all better.

Stand Alone

Sorry, but I don't want a program to add to an existing one. I need a good stand alone like Yahoo, Gmail or GMX.

Then you are likely looking for companies like we used at the office like THE ELECTRIC MAIL COMPANY which does the scans and blocks for you.

Try e-Capsule Private Mail, this mail client is more oriented to security and anti spamming.

Not A Provider/Go Daddy/Currently Using
by moranacus / April 20, 2008 8:28 AM PDT

I need an Email Provider not a program.
Anyone have anything good or bad to say about Go Daddy Email????
I'm currently using INBOX for emails but got upset with them when I
lost 2 IMPORTANT EMAILS while I was trying out the EMAIL NOTIFIER.
I don't mind paying for an EMAIL PROVIDER just as long as its a good one with no downtimes, spam protection, virus protection and GREAT customer service.
