Re: Endless email. - Nancy
Downloading to your email client means downloading to a program on your computer (Thunderbird, Outlook, Outlook-Express) so all of your email, new, saved, sent etc is on your computer - not on the net. You have access even if you are not online or the server for the email system goes down. You don't have to go to the web to download. You open your mail program, click "send/receive" and your mail downloads to your email program. Only Google to my knowledge allows that. The others want you to keep your email on their server so they can show you adds and control your mail.
I can check Yahoo and others again.
Another thing is unless someone has an email client, you have no access to Usenet. Something I've used and enjoyed for many years. And to get Usenet Groups, you have to have an email service like Gmail.
