I have Thunderbird.
I think it is "here to stay".
I like it a lot.
I don't have Incredimail, but Importing is done
using the Tools--> Import.
Of the the nice features I enjoy is the POP3 downloading.
I have it set up for my gmail account.Configuring POP3 in Thunderbird
Once set up, you simply select "get mail".
It will download mail from the server you have chosen (gmail)
It all goes into the Inbin.
20 messages might take 10 seconds to appear in my Inbin, (now on hard drive)
A word of caution.
Big file attacments (like a couple mp3's at 9.5MB) take too long.
Do them separately, by placing them in the Trash temporarily, before you
have POP3 used to download all your messages. (T-bird doesn't download Trash).
You can set up folders of your choice to organize.
Folder names I use are BC, PM Archives, Individuals, etc
Sub-folders of PM Archives include:
02-22 to 02-28 sent
02-22 to 02-28 rec'd
Sub-folders of individuals might be a nickname or full name.
BC contains forum & topic notifications,
Sub-folders might be:
you may color key any message listed in Inbin, Folder or sub-folder
in one of five colors, to assist in organization.
Use the context menu, right-click any message line found in the folder(s).
0 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 are
(default-black) - red - orange - green - blue - purple
