    Hi,

    I am in a need of an email client (outlook/thunderbird etc) with specific features,

    I have several domain names and email accounts that take ages to administer - but if i use outlook / thunderbird I end up with a mailbox for every account - or the emails seems to not download from servers with the same mail address, and inadvertantly get lost! e.t.c

    Like software that would allow me to specify many email account locations and usernames/passwords, let me apply various statuses and groups to them - in more of a central way than outlook will let me:

    Visnetic Mailflow:
    http://www.deerfield.com/products/visnetic-mailflow/

    is similar to what i have in mind, but much larger and feature packed than I need for myself.
    I dont mind if the software has to run as a server (i.e. using it as a localhost website).

    I'd prefer not to run a mail server as i can't guarantee my computer will be on all the time (dont want to change the MX record but then loose mail when my connection is down). Is there another way to run a server that wont result in lost mail?

    Does anyone have any suggestions,
    Please ask if you need further response, I know i've waffled quite a bit,

    EDIT: I might be getting to the point when a mail server is better - i would still like to be able to read my new emails when im not at home - so when i am at work i can still view any new or existing emails. So either using some web based software i can access through my dynamicDNS IP and have installed at home - or just use software that supports IMAP.


    Thanks for your help.

    EDIT: Free / Opensource is key

    I've settled for using Thunderbird with IMAP for now.
