    do they not have gmail in canada?

    Anyway, ThunderBird should work so long as you setup the ports and server info correctly.

    I think Mail.app does the job very well... even if it isn't as full featured as some of the others, it does what it does well.

    What kind of functions do you need?

    Click to open email, read, file.

    Simple.

    i tried it and it didn't work =(
    i belive with any program msn does not allow you to recieve or send mail unless you pay.. as far as i kno.. so here is what i do

    i use adium, and i set up another account.. u can use ur hotmail as the username, and password as password, since this is technically also ur .net account..and adium will notify you when u have new mail, a pop-up appears, and it says, goto msn.com or ok, if u click goto.. it logs u into msn and bam...

    not the same, but best i could find to do..

    I love mail, but for some reason I can't get it to connect to the Outlook webmail based email for work, so I had to result to using Thunderbird. :/
