I use multiple email accounts with a volume of +100 emails a day, and web clients like gmail don't cut it for me, I need a desktop client to work. Thunderbird however just crawls, I've tried a million things but it just cannot handle that amount of email. Every morning I have to wait 10 seconds just for Thunderbird to load, then another 5 seconds until the folder I clicked on loads, then another 3 seconds until I finally get to read an email.
I've been looking for an alternative to Thunderbird for years now, but until now no dice. Here's what I'm after in a nutshell:
- Not a fork of Mozilla Thunderbird
- IMAP compatible
- Fast, capable of handling large volumes of email without a sweat
- In active development
- Compatible with Windows 7
- Advanced filtering (at least as feature-rich as Thunderbird's filters)
Is there such a thing?
