    I go to school at the University of Phoenix partially online and the UoP servers are not compatible with the Office X so I have to use Thunderbird.

    I use Thunderbird for my school e-mail and newsgroups but I really don't like it. Dare I say I'd rather use a Microsoft product.:rolleyes:

    My biggest grip is the constant entering of passwords even when you click the save checkbox. It doesn't save crap.

    Any alternatives?

    What version of Thunderbird are you using? i remember the password save problem from older releases and avoided the program just because of that, but 1.5 seems to have its act together.

    I suspect that you can make them work with Entourage or even if you can make them work with TBird. They probably just don't want to support other clients. Personallly I prefer TBird 1.5, but the others have their place.

    What are the server account settings in TBird?
