I'll grant you that OE has a very nice UI. However, that's the ONLY good
thing about it. Virus problems aside, my favorite Windows mail client is
Outlook (note the lack of Express there). That's primarily because it
WORKS. It can actually handle a "begin  " line among other things. Now, I
realize that not everyone has MS Office, and therefore not everyone can
use Outlook, but in such a case, I'd much rather use FoxMail or some other
program than OE. At least something that works right! (Or, better yet,
just install cygwin and run your favorite Linux mail client.)
