etched into the cave:
Excactly. Which is why - even in Wintendo - I don't use Outlook Express,
like you are doing, or Internet Explorer.
Since you're using Windows up there in Oregon, you might want to try these
on for size - all free and all way more secure than Outlook Express. Oh,
and they help you not to top post either.
Pan - A GTK+ Newsreader. Excellent Binary Support: http://pan.rebelbase.com /
XNews - No install and very secure: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/xnews.html
40tude Dialog - Very powerful and full of features such as rot13 and other
addons: http://www.40tude.com/dialog /
I've used all of the above as you can see if you google my nym over the
I haven't used this but many swear by it:
Of course, should you decide to upgrade to Linux from Wintendo, then you can
always use KNode, which is what I'm writing this on:
kai - spyware free since 2002...
or bottom post.... my choice.
I tried Thunderbird. It SUCKS!!!!
I have a very good anti-spyware program that is free and WORKS!
SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition from here:
I like Thunderbird.
Of course, the only thing I use it for is email. The newsreader has
never worked right for me on it. I am using it less now, since gmail
is much better on the web, than using POP or IMAP through Thunderbird.
Compared to outlook express, Thunderbird is way ahead, giving you many
more options and features to use your email. Things like Junk mail
filtering. However, the new Windows Live Mail is a great improvement
to Express, and it should be used instead of outlook express in all
But that is all for email, for newsgroup readers, I have no idea.
For this newsgroup, I use Google Groups.
As far as an antiSpyware program running on linux. Why? Most spyware
takes advantage of Windows flaws, or installs a windows program
without your knowledge. Neither of those are possible when you use
Linux. The only possible way to have any kind of data compromised
would be a problem in Firefox that is platform (OS) independent, and
steals stuff from firefox like passwords and logins out of your
browser. No spyware or viruses for Linux.
Linux is great. My wife uses it at home and doesn't even notice that
its not windows. She doesn't care what the operating system is as long
as her email, word processing, and photos work, thats all she needs,
and I don't have to worry about her installing stuff that breaks the
computer or installs spyware or adware.
