Really? I know more than a dozen people who will call B$ on that one.

Outlook is notorious for corrupted PST files and Profiles, and trying to
rebuild a profile in Outlook is much more painful than doing so in TB -
mainly because it is so easy to backup TB profiles, and virtually
impossible to backup an Outlook profile.

whereas Thunderbird chokes up and dies under the same conditions.

Please do not spread FUD. This is blatantly false.

We have been using TB in our smallish (60+) user environment since
before it went 1.0.

I currently have 28 separate IMAP accounts, and TB is pretty much rock

It isn't perfect, but no software I have ever used falls into that category.

Of course, we have only used it as a real email client is supposed to be
used (IMAP, not ridiculously dated POP)... ;)

Also, if you are using POP with the 'leave messages on server' option,
then you should be using IMAP. The POP protocol was not designed to work
that way, that feature was an afterthought...
