Another Spam Thread

ANOTHER SPAM THREAD….In response to my question about spam filtering in the previous post, several people have suggested migrating to Gmail and Thunderbird. I’ve been thinking about doing both, but I have a couple of questions:

  • Does Gmail work with an email client or is it strictly a browser-based interface?

  • Can anyone share their experience migrating from Outlook Express to Thunderbird? The FAQ is strangely silent about it. Does it work? Any problems? Any gotchas I should be aware of?
