I realize I am off topic here, but…though much of my mail uses Gmail, I also want a computer-based email client. I have long used Thunderbird, but now am also looking at The Bat, Barca Pro b/c it has a built-in planner function, and Chaos Intellect for the same reason.

Any suggestions from anyone?

Chaos Intellect seems to be the best at tying each email in with a total contact history, including meetings, and tasks. But I am not sure how important that all is in the long run.

Thanks.

Daly

For what you are looking for, I wanted to use Gemx Do Organizer. It was great idea from them, but the implementation lacked. Particularly the email client module is very basic.
Can’t think of any other planner+email in one…well…ehm…MS Outlook ;)

Thanks Thomas.

I have given Chaos Intellect a good look. Had a very minor problem that was more my ignorance than anything, and phoned the company. Turned out I was speaking with the owner. We got my question answered, and then he went on to explain some other features to me. I was very impressed.

Greetings Daly,

First of all I don’t think you are off-topic at all, especially given the prominence of e-mail in the task manager thread.

Regarding e-mail management, I have personally long settled on dedicated programs that can (be) link(ed) to/from outher programas, rather than searching for all-round solutions. As such, I am currently using The Bat! which seems one of the most powerful.

An important aspect for me is a database infrastructure which can make enormous difference in spped when one is dealing with hundreds or even thousands of e-mails. As far as I know, only Outlook, Outlook Express and The Bat! rest on proper databases, though I don’t know of Thunderbird.

Regarding Chaos Software, I was a registered user of Time & Chaos 5.0/6.0 and had also purchased a software bundle of additional software. Of these, their e-mail application, though powerful, was (as most of Chaos software) too North American in its outlook; among other issues, it couldn’t handle foreign characters.

Cheers
Alexander

Daly -
If you use Zoot32 on a regular basis, Outlook syncs with it, which is a major plus for some of its users.
