like Thunderbird and then do as Andreas suggests.

It doesn't work on Thunderbird.

I can do it with Thunderbird 11.

Which version of Thunderbird does it not work in?  Which OS?
The current one for Ubuntu is 12.0.1

I have not read all the posting of this thread, but I know that there are a number of differences between the current version of TB and the older ones. I have not kept up with all the changes. Ubuntu 10.04LTS just recently went from 3.x.x to the newest versions in their repository, so I was downloading/installing the newer version myself.

I have never used the "email as MS Word" type of options, but I know that you have have 5 or even 10 attachments withing your email with TB. I have done that before.

Are you trying to "sent to email as . . " for many documents into one email message? I do not know how LO would do that. If you want to send one message with multiple file - be it .odt or .doc - I know the best way is to save/export/etc. the files in whatever format you need, check those files to make sure they were exported/converted correctly, then use the "attach" option in your email client. As I said, I have sent many files attached to one email message before with Thunderbird.

The only limitations seem to be the size of you "mail box" at your email server. Most of my email accounts are less than 20 MB, with one being about 1 GB. I know there are web mail systems with "unlimited" "mail boxes", but I do not use any of these services.

Which email clients have you tried, and what versions?

I have not used Evolution, or some of the other free email clients that can be used for Ubuntu or Windows, since I find that Thunderbird has everything I want and need. There are a lot of extensions for it, just like for Firefox browser. So you can make it work that way you need it to do. The Lightning Calendar extension is a good one for Thunderbird. Then there are the security options as well.

Actually, I have the "add on" that asked me about if I remembered to attach a file if I use key words in my text that might indicate that I am referring to an attachment. [if just happened with the pause in typing here after "attachment", saying I use the words "attach" "attached", and "attachment".]

To be honest, no email client will do everything for everyone. People look at all the things that MS Outlook has/had and want it in an open-source client. Outlook is more than a client. But if you want a good email package that has a calendar [that may now have the abilities to sync with Google Calendar], and other extended features, you could do a lot of great work withing Thunderbird email client and its available extended features listed on their web site.
