This is silly. I want a lightweight alternative to the Outlook Client so I don't have to choose between running that piece of crap or the piece of crap exchange site. Gmail an alternative mail server, and a great one, but it is not an alternative to the outlook client.

This needs subcategories.

Your lightweight alternative to the Outlook is Small Thunderbird iconThunderbird
which also has portable version. Must have app!!!
