Email Client recommendation?

by Myles Sinclair 12 replies
Hello Folks,

I've been using Eudora for a few years, which I'm very happy with - but now have a specific need for which it doesn't seem able to deal with.

I have multiple domains, all of which have email addresses that are forwarded to my primary address. So, info@greatideas.com, support@anothername.com etc., all go to myles@primary.com When I reply to these emails, the response is shown as coming from my primary address.

What I would like is a desktop email client where I can select which email address is shown in the "from field", rather than as now, just having my myles@primary.com address showing as the return address.

Just wondering what other folks are using to solve this problem.

Hope someone can advise.

Many thanks,

Myles

    I switched to Thunderbird.
    Thunderbird - Reclaim your inbox
    Was able to import my Eudora files.
    It's free too.

        Hey Michael, Eric,

        Thanks for the recommendation. Does Thunderbird have a feature that allows you to specify different "from addresses" in the outgoing emails?

        Best wishes,

        Myles

          Yes it does, and it is very easy to use as well. I would vote for Thunderbird as the best email client.

    Yahoo does this too with non-yahoo addresses via SMTP. Plus unlimited storage.

    I am using Thunderbird. I was using Outlook for years, then one day it wouldn't work. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and nothing. Looking for something similar to Outlook. Being a Firefox user, I had heard of Thunderbird and gave it a try. I have been using it over a year now and love it.

    I have Thunderbird setup very similar to what you described. I have several email accounts setup in it, that all get forwarded to one generic account which I keep at the very top of the program. I keep that account "maximized", and all the other accounts "minimized". This greatly reduces the clutter and makes it much easier to deal with (BTW I use a plug-in called 'Folderpane Tools' to move the folders/accounts around).

    If you set it up like this, whenever you reply to an email from the main (generic) account, it will automatically use the correct (pre-forwarded) email account in the 'From' field. Works perfectly.

    If you need any help setting it up like that, just PM me.
