    Up until now i have always used outlook on a PC as my main Email Client

    I have never used mail in OSX

    Really, fills all my needs and has integration with the OS, just like Outlook

    Apple Mail is by far the best. I belive there is outlook for mac but it's no longer being updated. There is microsoft entourage but for me it was nothing compared to apple mail. Entourage is much like outlook. It comes with Microsoft Office for mac.

    Eudora. I've been using it for 13 years without issues (well, maybe a few :) ).

    I prefer Mail, but I think that Thunderbird isn't so bad either. If you find you have problems with Mail that you can't overcome, give Thunderbird a look.

    I use Apple Mail for all my personal email, but I use Entourage at work (Exchange based email).

    I voted "other", but thats just because I have a CRM with built in email. Mail or entourage also work fine.

    Mail, because its there, and it hasn't given me a reason to switch to any other program. Works great with gmail.

    Mail

    It's just there and so simple. I use spotlight in it a lot, and of course the junk filter.

    Apple Mail.

    Used to have GPG bundle, but figured out I didn't do anything that was sensitive enough to bother, and I tried the Letterbox bundle when I moved to a widescreen Mac, but I never really use mail preview, so that wasn't any fun either... ;)

    Apple Mail.
    Mainly for system integration and because nothing else has wowed me enough to put in the effort to change.

    Out of curiosity, how many email accounts can Apple Mail handle? Can it connect to an Exchange server?

    Probably an academically high number...

    It handles my 6 active (5 POP and 1 IMAP) + 1 disabled just fine... I don't have any more than that... :)

    Yes.

    I did use Entourage for a while, but in the end I decided I just didn't really like it. I was only really using it for Hotmail reasons.

    And those reasons weren't strong enough to stay with it. So I switched to Apple Mail. And now I'm mroe than happy. Its simple and fresh. :)
