Just setup Thunderbird: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/
on my computer.
It is so much faster and it is using only 300kbytes
of space for the config and email files
(3 different email accounts and about 12 emails in sent items), so makes it very easy to backup.
Previously I was using Outlook Express on Windows Vista. WHAT A PILE OF SHIT both these are.
Vista is the slowest peice of shit I have ever used, its running on a new dual processor computer and its effin SLOW as a slug through shit.
Outlook Express used >15MB
for same number of config and email files
It just shows that Microsoft is nothing more than bloatware.
