HI Raymond

For many years I have avoided e-mail clients and just relied on the 
browser based gmail.

But I have changed my mind.

Thunderbird enables me to see messages individually and so I can sort 
and delete them.

The sorting function on Tbird is more robust as well. It drives me crazy 
when I receive an e-mail with a subject heading that is part of a thread 
but the message is about something else entirely. I can find these 
better with Thunderbird.

I do not like the Calendar interface on gcalendar. I am hoping the 
calendar in TBird will be better.
