    Thanks. So so far, one vote for Outlook Express. The reason I haven't
    gone to this right off the bat is that since it is an MS product (with
    some dubious and unknown relationship to Outlook) then if there is some
    corruption in my system I wonder whether it might affect O.E. similarly.
    (If there is some corruption which uninstall/instal doesn't fix, a wipe
    and reload of the system may, but I'm reluctant to go to such lengths
    just now...)

    On another point: I did check, and Outlook's 'Save As' does allow one to
    save as text. (I just tried it and it works.) Not that that is any
    consolation to me....

    Outlook Express is superb with Unicode. Besides:

    1/ if you interact a lot with web content, it has a nice, though
    minimal, facility for opening and editing web pages for emailing.

    2/ it allows you to save your messages as text -- great for determining
    character encoding problems. (As far as I can determine, this is not
    available with MS Outlook.)
