    First off...Hi Guys, have been reading these forums for quite a while.

    I dont think this is covered elsewhere on these forums...

    I need to be able to access several different email accounts at any particular moment in the day. I need to know when new mail comes in, I need to be able to reply from each account separately. Fairly straightforward really eh?

    I dont particularly get on with Apple Mail. I find it crashes fairly frequently and really struggles when I am out and about using the mobile dongle.

    Basically, my problem lies in finding a mail app that can efficiently manage several mailboxes. I really wish Gmail would sort out their offline access mode because the idea behind it is great, I just find it a little lacking. It would be nice to have a web based interface for times when Im not with my MBP, but need something more comprehensive than iPhone mail.

    Maybe I am looking for something that doesnt exist, I just feel that the email experience is not evolving as fast as other software.

    Many Thanks in advance for comments...

    My Apple Mail does this quite happily. I have it linked to two different IMAP accounts with automatic synchronisation. When constructing a mail I simply select from a pull-down menu which account I'm sending from.

    However, bearing in mind your Apple Mail is playing up you can do exactly the same thing with Mozilla Thunderbird.

    I use Thunderbird and am very happy with it. I have about 7 gmail addresses set up (IMAP) and one business address (POP), and no problems whatsoever.

    Postbox is a very good one too. I used it for awhile, but the HTML editing didn't satisfy me. It's free (I think) right now, but I don't think it will stay that way. It's snappy and just feels good.

    You get a month-long trial, after that you have to pay.
