What's a good alternative from Outlook 2000/2002/2003 and Outlook Express?

My uncle is having problems with Outlook Express and would like something non Microsoft to use. It needs to have Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, deleted items etc.

Have to agree on 'Thunderbird',
i downloaded it about 2 weeks ago.... never use 'Outlook' now.
It's easy to set up and you can add skins just like 'Firefox'

I use Thunderbird and am quite happy with it. It's really easy to create numerous folders, and you can set it so that your anti-virus real-protection will scan e-mails as they come in.
