     Just installed Thunderbird on this laptop.  My first impression is that 
this is very nice, a much needed refinement of OE.  What I liked best at first 
is that you just provide your email address and password and then it looks up 
the POP3 etc. setup information in a database.

     I have a couple of unused Dell towers at home, and I'm going to set one up 
as a WinXP machine.  That will let me use all of my design and writing software 
without having to deal with the Win7 denials.
