Love your show but have been snowed under at work (I am another one of those over worked Physics teachers!) I just wanted to say I am catching up again and agree with what you said about Thunderbird being a great email client to collect from multiple accounts.

Ray said he keeps everything. I am a bit like that myself and I have found that Thunderbird doesn't like it once it has more than a few thousand emails in the inbox and I have had some horrible crashes that have lost the entire folder.

I found that I could prevent this by moving older message to a local folder so that I never had too many in the inbox at once, always kept it under 2000 and thunderbird plays nicer when you manage your mail like that.

Don't get bitten the way I did!
