    I currently use Entourage, but I'm not a huge fan of it. It seems to be a memory hog.

    I get TONS of junk email though, like 20-30 a day, and the filter on Entourage is great.

    Does Applemail have a filter? If so how good of a job does it do? And can you make Rules in Applemail like you can in Entourage.

    If you don't use either Applemail or Entourage, what do you use?

    I used Entourage for awhile, but I got tired of the beachball. I got tired of waiting several seconds for an email message to load. So I switched to applemail, and I am much happier.

    I use both, my work account is on applemail because it doesn't get much junk. But all of my gmail goes through entourage for the filters.

    i disagree, i used thunderbird for about 10 minutes and it fucking blows compared to mail 2.0 as far as looks go.

    mail does what a mail program should do. pop/imap are extremely easy to set up, junk mail filter is great, looks great, and it works with finder/spotlight which just makes it ftw.

    I use Mail.app and it does the job, but it is not without its quirks. The spam filter works great for me, and I have some rules to sort my mail into subfolders.

    Entourage is a good TV show, but if you think MS Shitware is finding its way on my MacBook... think again.

    can apple mail handle exchange accounts? I'm using entourage for that reason, and it does a great job at it :dunno:

    Yes, it can, but it's not as integrated like Entourage.
