I'm looking for a stable e-mail clients software for downloading mail. I'm a freelance web designer, and thus keep receive huge amounts of email, each with attachments reaching 800KB or more - clients sending photographs.

I am unable to use MSOE, as it is not stable enough and keeps disconnecting.

I tried using "The Bat!" and it's excellent, but recently my ISP changed their SSL certificate and The Bat doesn't seem to be accepting the new certificate - like G mail, my ISP only allows download of mail via port 995.

Another feature I really like about The Bat, is it's ability so automatically save incoming attachments in a separate folder on my hard disk.

It would be great if I could get The Bat to work on this new certificate, but incase if that's not possible, is there a free email software on the market that's as stable as The Bat and has the ability to automatically save incoming mail attachments in a separate folder on my hard disk?

Regards.

What's wrong with just using Gmail?

Haven't you heard of Thunderbird? Same guys that make Firefox.

I also used Eudora for many years as well, but in the past 5 years I migrated to Web Based email. I don't download anything to my hard drive.

If you get large files sent to you a lot you may want to setup an FTP server at home that allows your clients to upload files to your FTP Server. Or get a SkyDrive or Yahoo Briefcase account where your clients could also get accounts and upload the files that way as well.
