Re: O E classic again

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>

No me neither likewise live mail and other more recent clients. What I find bad for me is having all the accounts in one long tree which can make it muddly and hard to figure out which folders are tied to which accounts for sorting and if you hide some then you tend to lose messages when you forgot you hid them and have rules sending email there which you forgot you had!
This is why using the bodged up Outlook express is what I'm doing.
Outlook is like using a swiss army knife as screwdriver. it has far too much in it.
20 Euro is not a great amount for three installs on different machines.
It of course still has the bugs OE always had like the preview pane can crash it through nvda, but who wants that preview pane in any case.
It also seems to be handling the secure connections fine as well. Yesterday I had to reinstall it due to it losing the ability to remember passwords, but I took the opportunity to get archived many old emails and tweak some rules while I was at it, It kept the accounts OK though so I'm not complaining. It forced me to do some housekeeping.

The one problem it seems to share with other old clients is that if Windows 10 decides to make a whole new build like the anniversary one it trashes it, so its best to back up all messages when you get wind of an impending mega update from Microsoft.
I had a look at the weird client in 10, but its a tonka toy really.

Why not just use Thunderbird, being it's fully supported, and being NVDA
works absolutely beautifully! with it?

Subject: [nvda] O E classic again

Hello all,

I just did a system upgrade for a friend and found that live essentials is
no more. He didn't go all the way to windows 10 so he is stuck without an
email client. OE classic is inaccessible, but I paid not as much attention
to the discussions on it as I should have. So, I installed it and was less
than happy with the result. My friend is even more disgruntled as you can
imagine. Is any work being done to make an add-on to support OE classic?
If so, how can we contribute? Neither of us are coders, but we may be able
to help with funding and testing.
