Right on, I'll have to give it a go (have downloaded). I'm more of a text
person, but it's usually the layout that means the most to me.

I've had amazing luck here with no crashes (just program freezes/force
quits, but that's because of crappy beta software anyway). I think I've only
restarted the computer, really! Very happy with the Mac.

Dare say that's why I started using it in the first place! And probably it's
biggest "plus" for me. Now it just needs a "highlight keywords" feature and
it'd be perfect. ;)

And a double warning on that. Never open email attachments unless you
know for absolutely certain that the person in question actually meant
to send them to you. There are virii out there that will open up the
address books in Outlook and then send themselves to everyone in the
address book as attachments. Thus your best friend may open an infected
attachment and you will receive it from him/her and if you aren't
careful you will open it and infect your computer and send it on to
everyone in your address book.
