  2. I've used the portable version of Thunderbird. Also, because of the
    way the mail is structured, I can copy files between my desktop and
    external USB drive quite easily.

    But beware, any mail client is going to be very slow on a flash drive.
    I used a portable USB hard drive, because although my flash drives fit
    everything comfortably, they were so slow, I wasn't sure if it was the
    flash or something else had gone wrong.

  3. If that's the case, it's worth to try a fast SD card in a mini/micro
    USB SD cardreader. The fast SD card is probably much faster than a
    normal USB memory-stick ("flash drive").
    Yes, these days there are portable USB hard drives, which are nearly
    as convenient to carry/use as a USB memory-stick and relatively cheap
    and sometimes even cheap in the absolute sense (for example a 320GB hard
    drive for a lower price than a 16GB memory-stick).

    Not sure what the USB flash drive bit is about.

    Just going thru the exercise myself, and have chosen to run OE6 on the virtual XP on Win7 64bit.

    Dont like Windows Mail, because it has a separate inbox per POP account and since I have
    about 10 thats a complete pain in the arse. And its a real kludge to run on Win7 anyway.
    And it has separate eml files per message too, a real pain because I keep email forever
    because its so much easier to check on the detail of stuff I have previously bought or
    transacted etc.

    Not keen on Windows Live Mail, the latest one doesnt quote newsgroups at all
    and I prefer to use the same client for email and usenet.

    Some use Outlook, but its a real pain for multiple POP accounts.

    I dont like Thunderbird myself.

    I've used the Bat Voyager which for years has worked fine
    I like need the portability of a USB drive (traveling and so forth)
    and not losing emails when you change computers.
    Seems adequate speed ways though?
    Just wondering if there is something better out there

    I use a USB drive to send and receive email.
    http://www.ritlabs.com/en/products/voyager/
    Keeps all my email on a USB drive (program activations and so on)
    I don't like its reply format. receives in HTML (asks first before
    displaying or downloading content)
    Used to like Outlook Express till Microsoft removed it as part of
    their continuing downgrades from WIN3.11

    Yeah, my brain fart there.
    Thats a bit dangerous, USB drives fail more often than any other single thing.

    Corse you can copy them regularly for backup.
    Yeah, thats a pain in the arse given that most of them are in that format now.
    They only did that after XP.

    Its not great for quoting HTML emails tho.

    No big deal if you dont reply to them or are happy to just top post.

    You can keep the emails on a USB drive, but not OE itself.

    Yes TheBat also comes with a PC Email client which allows me to
    remove/save selected emails
    This "feature" works well remembering (only asks for unknowns)
    Gone to Microsofts bit bin now

    Thunderbird and mozbackup.

    Appears to be the best for me if you want to move everything from one PC to the other, nothing lost.

    However I have never run it from a USB drive, but I don't see any reason why you couldn't.

    If you have full access on both PCs, you would only use USB to transfer the files.

    OK, if you don't want to move it from one PC to the other as I suggested, you need the portable version:
    http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/thunderbird_portable

    and seems to
    I don't know why you would think that.

    This seems more like it thanks
    The write/read "Pad" format seems the same as what I thought was a web
    browser

    OK good luck with it.

    I tried a heap of methods for traveling before I came across tbird and mozbackup.

    I don't know if mozbackup will move your files from the portable app to a PC, be nice if it does.

    Got it to receive after putting in exactly what I put in before?
    But looks adequate
    Noticed it kept changing port settings on it's own accord?
    Now to work out how to view headers and body?

    Another option is Forte Agent. Its email client works quite well. Plus you have
    an industry standard Usenet client, to boot.

    And it's a simple matter of copying the "data" sub-directory between desktop PC
    and laptop if you want to sync the different copies.

    Does Thunderbird do Usenet?
