Hi, I am fed up with the slow performance / not responding of WLM and want to migrate my email to another email client.
Ideally I'm looking for something that can import my exiting message rules / folders rather than set up everything again as I have 6 different accounts (1x Gmail,1x Hotmail,3x Yahoo and 1 x BTInternet) with a minimum of 13 folders for rules for each account !!
TIA for your help,

Try Mozilla Thunderbird.

If you need any assistance with it such as how to customize it, or add plugins etc., go here: Mozilla Thunderbird Help

Thats a non starter for me as I'm looking for something that can import my exiting message rules / folders which is not an option with Thunderbird.
There must be something / some way to do it - I know I'm not alone, googling "WLM not responding" brings up plenty of others with the same reason for moving !!
Any other suggestions ?
