I agree, Outlook97 is horrid. Outlook98 is a bit better. I've always used
Pegasus and like it very, very much. I'm only using OUtlook temporarily
while waiting for new system. It has one feature to recommend it: can
retrieve mail from multiple ISPs and mailboxes without me having to install

Amen. With the exception of Excel, I have never found a piece of MS software
I truly liked. I loathe Word, but use it because there simply isn't anything
else anymore (don't like WP). I wish Xywrite were still alive....the old
Xywrite was blindingly fast, incredibly rich in features, and compact.
