> I am such a Mozilla fan I use their email application as well.  Mozilla

> you, as it can be a bit of a learning curve if you are used to Outlook.

> In addition, you could be experiencing other things that most Windows 
> users simply live with, and that is the fact that if your computer has 
> been in an 'always on' status it tends to generate memory leaks over 
> time.  These leaks can cause system instability and crashes.

> Hopefully this helps.
