I forgot to add that I'm using a new Dell XPS 8500 Desktop System. Outlook 2013 seems to have too many issues and it's not easy to find Outlook 2010 at a reasonable price.

A very long time ago I used Eudora, anyone know about the new Eudora OSE email client?

OpenOffice appears to be as-is, nothing new in the works. So look at LibreOffice now.

What's in Outlook that you want? Most folks get by with Thunderbird.

I just got used to using Outlook 2003 with my old laptop and I liked when I click on an email link in a webpage and Outlook would open already addressed according to the link.

I was looking into either Thunderbird and FIrefox, but I'm also curious about Eudora OSD

I should have left out Firefox as it is a web browser.

Eudora's days seem numbered but there were folk that were nothing short of fanatical about it.

Since the office has Office 2003 licenses aplenty, we stuck there and a decade later have not changed.
I bet that irks some one in Redmond.
