    Which email client to use in our church office

    I am setting up our church office with some 8 PCs connected via a LAN and ADSL connection to an ISP.

    I would like a common e-mail client, and Outlook Express - well the price is right! But I am concerned about security issues, especially virus attacks. I am planning NAV corporate edition.

    What are the likely problems I might find? Does version 6 offer improved security to version 5.5? Am I right in assuming that I need to run the same version of IE and OE?

    We also have Office 2000 licences, although still using Office 97. Is there a benefit in moving to Outlook 2000 over Outlook Express 5.5 or 6? Moving to Office 2000 is just a fair bit more work.

    Big question blue moses .

    Maybe using a program that lets you read the mail on the ISP server & either delete , reply or OK it to put it on your computer is the best way to go .

    I use this one .
    POP Peeper is a utility that runs in your Windows task bar and alerts you when you have new
    email on any of your POP3, Hotmail, MSN or Yahoo accounts. You can also use POP Peeper to read
    and delete your email. POP Peeper supports HTML email, so you can see your email the same way
    as you would in your email client.

    blue moses,
    Definitely plan on a good anti-virus program like NAV.
    Don't depend on any security features in OE. It doesn't have ANY anti-virus security!! Both have things like 128 bit encrypting.
    You can run different versions of IE & OE. So why not use OE? You didn't mention what Operating System you will be running? WIn 2000, Win XP ?


    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
