    Like Portable Firefox, it's not really portable as it leaves folders and temp files on the host computer.

    I used to use the built in mail client in Opera and thought it was great but since Opera took a dump I tried many to replace it. I used Thunderbird for over a year but it's a little bit on the heavy side for what it is and many of the good plugins are outdated and no longer compatible. Postbox, which is built off of this, has made greater strides in improving and I much prefer the layout but it isn't free.

    I had used the SimpleMail plugin for Firefox as I do prefer my mail client to be part of my browser but it is way too buggy and it corrupted quite a few of my stored emails.

    Fortunately there is still one last piece of good Opera around and that is Opera mail. Unfortunately it hasn't been updated since they ripped it out of the now deceased (Presto)browser. For me it's still a better mail client when compared to this because of it's nicer layout and TRUE portability

    I've been using this for years now, and it's been pulling from my yahoo/gmail/hotmail without an hitch. So 5 from me.

    I switched to this from Outlook Express a while back because I liked the portability between Windows installs and even other platforms.

    I've never looked back.

    FIVE stars.

    In a world where everyone and everything is going 'web', Thunderbird is a mainstay application. It's flexibility, portability and extensibility are the things that keep it as a must have application. Thunderbird greatest asset is the extensions. SocialMail is my favorite extension for Thunderbird; it gives it the Microsoft Outlook/Xobni look/function that everyone is looking for... Thunderbird should be in everyone's programs listing.

    Until next time,
