Not really.

If you wanna go the opensource route there's Thunderbird but it really doesn't compare to Outlook. There's also Eudora which is awesome but might be a bit of a steep learning curve...

sorry, Windows XP or even vista by now (vista has a few problems with older files but other than that it's pretty cool)

Try using Evolution as email client Thalion. OpenSource. MS Office/Exchange compatible. How do you connect to your email server? POP? MS Exchange? IMAP?
It supports MS Exchange with a seperate plug-in. But IMAP/POP support is native....
Google: "Evolution" E-mail client

I have tried Outlook, Outlook Express, Incredimail, Pegasus etc. and have settled on Mozilla Thunderbird, it does everything I want it to and have never had any trouble with it.

There is also the web based one - gmail which I also use quite a bit, nice thing about gmail is they have an application you can download for your cell phone so you can very easily send and receive your emails on your phone using gmail.

Hhhhmmm - Office 2007 will most likely cost you around R4000 - if not more - IF you want to go the legal route ;-)

Try OpenOffice in combination with Evolution..... Works BEAUTIFULLY! Was designed with each other in mind ;-)

That is about the price, if you go to Incredible C R6500.00
Lucky I can buy hardware and software direct.

Legal route is best now days.:whistling:

OpenSource software is basically very good quality "free software" that does not require a "paid-for license".

OpenOffice is developed by Sun Microsystems, to be a very good quality (and at least 95% compatible) Office Suite competitor to Microsoft Office Suite.

Evolution is also OpenSource (an OpenSource license allows anyone to freely use, distribute/copy, even modify the code, BUT in this case the code MUST be redistributed with the software).

Thalion - YES - Evolution was orginally developed for Linux many years ago. The developers then changed the code to work on MS Windows XP as well. (Developed in CPP). So - yes - you do indeed get a version of Evolution that works/installs natively on MS Windows XP.

Thx. At one time everything was "OpenSource" to me.:whistling:
