    I need a new email client

    Give the email client built into SeaMonkey a try. I like it very well. SeaMonkey is the continuation of the old Netscape Communicator 7.2 suite, with browser, email client and chat client all built in. You won't hardly be able to tell the difference from Netscape 7.2 except for the security...

    How to check your PC performance in detail .
