    I just hate the HUGE buttons on the toolbar, there is no option to decrease their size. When I first ran the programa it asked me about firefox/mozilla integration, I answered yes, then thunderbird cool is that? Maybe a firefox 2.0 beta issue? Another cool problem: when clicking the uninstall start menu item it shows a erro "Could not open install.log file." you click OK and it does not uninstall. I just hate it, never want to see it again, no second chances for this.

    Great app, never let me down. Simple, but not oversimplified.

    *rpavl* - what on earth are you going on about, never read so much garbage in my life [well maybe a slight exaggeration], and what is a preocess anyway.

    Good program, does what it's supposed to do, integration with Firefox etc makes life easy, never had a problem with it over the years I've used it.
