My requirement for mail clients that would be used here at
work includes most importantly that they be MAPI-enabled
e-mail clients. If you have to ask why, the answer is: our
line of business application is a Windows-only application,
and we find that by sticking exclusively to Windows-based
applications, we achieve a high rate of integration between
all our systems, and more importantly, between all our lusers,
er, users. The shorter version of that ansnwer is: groupware.

I'd be interested in seeing what e-mail clients Dave and
others use *THAT ARE MAPI-ENABLED*. Not a criterium for
most of you perhaps, but it is for me.
