Looking for Windows E-Mail Client

Fri Nov 22, 2013 10:13 pm

I'm looking for a Windows E-mail client with the following abilities:

1. Can send and receive messages in Unicode format (more specifically, UTF-8).

2. Can search for a string in an entire message (body and header). It must be able to search in the entire message using a single option, i.e. it must have an option saying "Search in entire message". It isn't enough to be able to combine two options saying "Search header" and "Search body" to have the same result.

3. Can forward messages so that the "From" line shows the original sender rather than the forwarder.

The last version of Eudora from Qualcomm can do 2 and 3, but not 1. The Mozilla version of Eudora can't do 2.

I usually use kmail using Linux, which can do all three, but I'm looking for a Windows program. I've tried the Windows port, but found it unacceptably slow under Windows 7 64-bit.

I believe that Windows Live Mail covers your three bullets.

I know for sure it can do number one and three. I'm a little iffy on if the client meets bullet two.

Seems like Thunderbird with the Mail Redirect add-on can do it. I tried looking the feature up in Windows Live Mail and didn't find it. Outlook certainly can do it.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.
