Sylpheed Sylpheed

Excellent email software 5 stars
I have used Sylpheed for about five years now. Previously I used some other well-known email software for 15 years but always experienced a problem moving it to a new PC due to the compressed mailbox format. There are no such issues with Sylpheed which I've found to be extremely stable and reliable. Mailboxes are simply folders on the drive. It handles multiple POP3 accounts with ease with a choice of signature on each account. Email is displayed as text which is what I prefer. If you want to see any HTML version you can open it in a web browser. Images are handled nicely, appearing in the body of the email and attachments tab. Sylpheed has a nice feel to it which is what you want when dealing with email all day. Price: Free

Kaspersky Free Kaspersky Free

Unsuitable for older equipment 3 stars
I installed this on a ten year old laptop that I still use regularly (and very effectively) in the hope that it would be a lightweight solution. Immediately Kaspersky Free was using between 24 and 75 of the CPU whenever I did anything. In fact I struggled to uninstall it because everything I touched was "not responding" due to the resource hogging. I realise this is old equipment but the whole anti-virus industry needs a rethink. These programs do little more than they did years ago yet clearly use vastly more resources than they used to. No one wants an antivirus center stage on their system dominating everything.
