Since Friday, Outlook Express has failed to connect me to my ISP for mail. Have downloaded "Pegasus mail", which is fine for most purposes but cannot cope with Cyrillic or unicode. Does anyone know of a system which can? I could do it on webmail of course, but I'd rather have a computer-based mail handler.
Извините за то, что пишу по-английски.

1. This doesn't sound right. Outlook Express generally shouldn't care what your ISP is. Must be something w/settings. What is the error message?


2. MS Outlook (not "express") works fine for sure. Netscape mail client should work too (just haven't used it for some while).

Becky! Internet Mail - very good email client Feb 17, 2004

Becky!



Features


You can create multiple mailboxes, of course. Moreover, you can create multiple "profiles" for each mailbox. This feature is especially useful if you use laptop computer. You can switch between several different settings, like "LAN" and dialup, for the same mailbox.

New protocols are supported -- IMAP4rev1 for e-mail and LDAP for the address book.

Fast! You can manage thousands of e-mail at your fingertip.

You can write HTML e-mail with Becky!. If you have Microsoft Internet Explorer ver5 or higher installed, Becky! is a complete HTML enabled e-mail client.

Flexible template capability. You can prepare standardized e-mail format for business and personal e-mail. You can also create HTML template, of course.

With unique "Reminder" capability, you will receive e-mail from "you" on scheduled date. You can even schedule sending e-mail messages to someone else. You don't have to remember your friends' birthdays -- Becky! does.

Powerful "Filtering Manager" -- You can sort messages into folders according to the filtering rules. You can define unlimited and/or conditions for one filtering rule.

"Mailing Lists Manager" helps you to organize multiple mailing list subscriptions. You don't have to search past e-mail just to find how to unsubscribe the list.

"Plug-In" Interface enables third parties to create useful plug-ins to customize Becky! for your particular needs. Actually, Becky!'s voice message and PGP functionality are the plug-ins.

etc. Of course, Ver.2 inherits Ver.1's numerous convenient features.

Спасибо за совет Feb 18, 2004

I've looked at a lot of recommended websites and downloaded from two: "Becky!" recommended by Nikita in this forum and "Eudora" recommended by Sergei Tumanov in the General Technical Support forum.
I have decided that Eudora suits me best.
Thank you all for your advice.

Update on email systems Feb 21, 2004

I got Eudora into some sort of working order and can manage quite well with it, but I thought I would try The Bat! as well. I now think it will probably prove better than Eudora. I have had some valuable assistance with it from Владимир Люкайкин, for which I am most grateful.

I have also now discovered that Pegasus Mail, which I thought had no Cyrillic, can be set to Cyrillic Windows as its default encoding, so that is usable too.

None of these systems has anything about Unicode. A friend of mine using AoL cannot understand my Cyrillic because of this, so I have just recommended The Bat! to him.

Just tried reinstalling Outlook Express. It made no difference, it still won't connect to my server (obviously I have checked the account settings thoroughly and they are exactly as they always were).

Thanks again to all of you for your help.
