Hey guys,
I am having trouble installing thunderbird e-mail on windows 7.
Is there a good alternative e-mail to use instead?
Thankyou.

Thanks classic,
I don't have the page here before me at the moment but the message block says that the outgoing mail is secured or encrypted and my isp[Bigpond in au.]
does not have encryption on smtp.W I try to manually configure I get both pop and smtp like that.AT first I could send but not receive mail.
Have uninstalled thunderbird at the present so can't get a screen shot,even if I can work out how to do it on W 7.

I don't think that TB should be OS dependent so it is probably some incorrectly configured setting that you need to double check with the Bigpond.au specifications (http://bigpond.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/672).

Whenever there are problems with Vista and Win7 I always try turning off UAC temporarily to see if any of its security aspects could be involved.

Thanks fellers,
I had to reset the password with bigpond and all is ok now.
