Resolved Question

Simple Email Client

by JamesJoey123 / May 29, 2013 4:37 AM PDT

I've searched hi and lo to find a simple email client but I haven't had any luck.

I don't want web based email.
I don't want all the extras like calendar, contacts.....
In the left navigation pane I want a bunch of irrelevant folders. Only the folders under the account(s) (inbox, outbox Trash and the like)

Any help will be appreciated.

>> and loves it , costs her $8.00 a month. It's very simple to use. She's the only person I know that uses it so I can't vouch for it any further. Hope this helps...Digger

I don't want to pay 8 a month. I'd pay for the software but not a monthly fee.

Did you already try Thunderbird? It's free from Mozilla.

It's pop3, not web-based. It doesn't have a calendar. It does have an address book, but you're not required to use it, if you want to do without it. And all folders except the standard ones you have make yourself (or, in your case, you don't make them). So it seems to fit your needs rather well.

You may want to check out the e-mail client from Opera. Simple and light. Previously it used to be combined with the Opera browser, now they have hived it off to a seperate application.
