So, yeah.

I've been using Incredimail now for close to a decade and never had an issue with it - up until the last few days.

The last straw was Wednesday when it froze up completely and just wouldn't work.  I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling, but no dice.  Last night I finally admitted defeat and pulled the plug on the program for good.

Really pisses me off as I found it a useful E-Mail program, making it possible for me to pull in E-Mails from the three accounts (Webmail, Hotmail and Yahoo) that I maintain into one clearing house.

Anyone else here had something like that happen?


Oh, and does anyone know of a better program like Incredimail that I can use?

Hmmmmm

Well, I already use Firefox.  Something to think about anyway.

Thunderbird has a good reputation.

Both Open and Libre office has a tendency to go completely to shit at times. I'm assuming it has to do with if you have several versions installed, or leftovers from old installations, or both at the same time or something. I've had both suddenly start freezing for a minute or so whenever I save anything. Really annoying.

For some reason, Outlook '10 borked on me this morning. I'm thinking it was just a net connection, but I don't know.
