    I will be deeply grateful if some kind soul would recommend a decent, practical e-mail program to replace thie goofy Google e-mail program. It should run on Windows 10. I've considered going back to MS. Outlook but hoping someone has a better idea to share.

    This should be interesting considering the bias and censorship being displayed by so many companies that offer services on the internet, specially social media. I an using the basic "mail" program that comes with windows 10 software but have put a lot of limitations on what I get via windows 10 "mail" via my internet and e-mail provider.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at it. I have it here somewhere but it mysteriously stopped working a while back as a consequence of a windows update. To use it I will probably need to have windows installed again (for about the third time).

    That “edge” option?

    I just a new laptop Win10. That default email is not user friendly.

    Ive been looking at new email support as well, use GMail, but I absolutely HATE how documents, pictures are downloaded/saved/hidden.

    We are forced to use outlook at work, iffy, the new version requires you to go to the website. PITA in the field. I use a lot of pics/pdf files in the field, not user friendly, esp when you consider how utterly fucked 5G e is.

    This ^ is exactly my problem with it and the very reason I want the hell out. If only I could go back to Outlook Express but W-10 doesn't support it. Bummer. .

    Nope. Gotta use that new purty, dolled up version. The original plain jane version rocked, wasn’t fancy, but very effective. Signatures were basic.
    Seems like everything is form over function these days. Annoying.

    Get your own domain name through go daddy.

    Then go to App River and get an exchange email. Your family could get them too. You control your own content, and Gopgle doesn't scan your emails.

    Take a look at Thunderbird email; after you set it up, it is quite easy to use and it is quite similar to Outlook Express.
