Well to be honest, before Netscape mail, I was using Outlook (not OE) at work. No problems for 2 years straight -- never down.
In fact, I had never even heard the term "kicked off" until I started using Netscape last month. Now I'm "kicked off" four of five
times a day. But that's ok, because when it happens, I know who is to blame, especially in the late afternoon when I'm restarting
Netscape Mail for the 4th or 5th time, because then I think about everything that Netscape Mail could be, but isn't, because of all
those anticompetitive things that MS did, I mean, everyone know's it's all MS's fault. I wasn't born yesterday and I'm not fooled
at all by Outlook, even if it was up 24 hours a day for two years running, and allowed me to put the sender column on the far left
(where it should be). That's no reason to use it, or even tolerate it, and thankfully I don't have that option any more. I'm not
suffering, I'm liberated. (I'm also wasting about 20 minutes a day.)
