    Emails ...

    I want Outlook (not Outlook.com)

    So, I want an email program which brings my emails to MY computer and not stored on some Cloud system ... simply, I don't trust the fuckers.

    Previously I used Outlook (part of the Office Suite), but the upgrade with a new computer to Win 10 apparently precludes my older version of Office.

    I don't need the Office Suite ... there is enough freeware available for those functions.

    I'm not in Thailand ATM, so no freebies available there.

    Pirate Bay as a source of Outlook ... possible, wary of viruses/malware ... however, if someone has a link they have used and trusted, I won't say no.

    I don't have FaceBook/Twitter etc, so I don't care about linking. I do want an integrated Calendar.

    The only way I've found to actually buy Outlook is as part of Microsoft Office and that is about Bht 8,000


    When I travel back to Thailand, I can view my emails through my ISP, but they delete emails older then 3 months old.

    Some constructive help please.

    Thanks
    Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure..

    Why don't you just use Thunderbird?

    Don't quite understand your needs. I use Outlook on both my iMac and phone, and it has calendar and other functions. I don't use a 'cloud' for anything. Emails never get deleted unless I choose to do so.

    I previously used Hotmail, and was offered Outlook as an alternative, and never part of the Office Suite.

    Free download here:

    https://outlook-on-desktop.en.softonic.com/download

    and you can get the phone app for either iOS or Android via their respective stores.

    Do you know Eudora? After all, I haven't found any better and faster email for thousands messages to be easily filed and searched. Unfortunately, it does not always shows html messages. And they have discontinued their further development, leaving it to Thunderbird.

    Thunderbird I am using only when needed to see such html content. However, disappointed by the handling difficulties of a larger number of messages, very difficult to retrieve and to file attachments and much more problems. So using TB only for few special cases when cannot read the message in Eudora.

    Interesting, some Thai text that is garbaged when opened in Eudora, can be read in Eudora preview.

    Or in Mailwasher I am always using before downloading messages to Eudora. Very easy program that can open, check and see thru funny messages, then delete straight away from the server.

    EUDORA still can be downloaded free from Internet and it works with my nearly 100,000 messages very good, easy to back and transfer to another machine.

    I have tried many other (free) names, haven't found any better than EUDORA.

    I had a quick look and I already use FireFox.

    It's got a Calendar ... great.

    I read the reviews, but couldn't find the answer.

    Does it download the emails to your computer rather then the program sitting on your computer and the emails off in the Cloud?

    If you can access your emails from either your iMac and phone then arn't you looking at a remote server hosting them?

    So, you would be using Outlook.com ?

    Well, you either buy office 2016 for home and business or type 'Mail' in your Windows search bar and use their built in app for normal users

    I would definitely NOT recommend downloading Outlook off pirate bay or Somchai for very fukkin obvious reasons

    I used Eudora from the first day it was released but switched to Thunderbird a few years ago, you should really try it.
    Outlook I have never used and will never do, that is the number 1 program responsible for users getting trojans and viruses.

    I've used the same hotmail address since 2003.

    When Outlook came about nothing happened, I just sign in all the same.

    I've disabled the cloud storage thing on the laptop, and disabled all it's extras and stopped it hovering in the background slowing me down. It used to keep bothering me to use it. My private emails are for my privacy.

    Fuck Cloud, it's a scam to get your info, and yes, I have things to hide.

    It's a user setting, you decide if you want the mails to get erased from the server or being left on the server.

    It shemails you need to worry about.
    Good luck I use fastmail but am not as IT savvy as many here.
    I'm not too bothered if CIA watch read my

    "What' time's dinner Teerak' or my Wisdens orders on Amazon.
    I'm not sure but I think there is no privacy any more there are sleeper Ants and undercover Thai women disguised as beer.

    One thin I would recommend a back up drive for power outages or if you lose a laptop/phone etc

    As god said to Moses Keep taking the tablets
    I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn’t find any.

    It will do what you tell it to.

    Keep a copy of read emails on the server, or delete them.

    Up to you.

    I have gone full mactard this year. MacBook Pro, iPad and iPhone.

    keep it simple,

    Use Thunderbird, the only credible one left on the market

    some other installable app might be too complex to setup or use, I know quite a few interesting ones, but not for newbies

    As I said, I have TB, using already over few years only for some html, however, from the reasons I have mentioned, I cannot compare with the user-friendly Eudora.

    Windows Live Mail was actually very nice, even though it had a bit of a gay interface

    but it had all the features you needed to replace Outlook Express,

    sadly they discontinued the thing,

    why is it that MS shutdown projects that actually works and people love, how fucking retarded can they be ?

    I use Opera Mail and have for years. Yes it downloads the emails to my computer. The settings can be tricky.

    Don't know though if it has the calendar requirements you want...

    edit: btw the Opera browser and email client used to be integrated, but no longer are.

    Email client | Outlook alternative | Download free | Opera

    Eudora has moved.

    On October 11, 2006 Qualcomm announced the final release of the commercial version of Eudora, as well as the transition of the product to open source under the Mozilla Foundation. Qualcomm continued to contribute resources to the development of the project called Eudora OSE until its launch in September 2010. To get the most up to date information and the current status of Eudora OSE, please visit Mozilla.org.
