    I purchased my Mac Book Pro for business. While I do and will use a VM to run Windows I am trying to make the complete change over to MAC OS. The one thing I hate thus far is the email program. I need a better way.

    What options are out there for us?

    I attach many files and don't like them to be embedded.

    I also prefer to have read receipts.

    Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

    Anyone else? I don't like the lack of a junk folder in T Bird.

    All files put in an e-mail are sent as attachments. Whether or not it appears as embedded at the destination is up to whoever configures the destination's e-mail client, i.e. you have no control over it.

    The mail server needs to be configured to support read receipts. This has nothing to do with the client either.

    I'm fairly sure it is the program that makes that designation. Read receipts while not 100% fool proof is also built into mail programs like Outlook.

    Yes, you are correct- it is the mail client that makes the determination (whether or not an attachment is displayed inline or as an attachment) at the destination. The source does not determine anything about the destination client's setting.

    ...on properly configured servers, yes- read receipts are supported.
