    The main reason I spoke of the Outlook addiction is that (at least as of
    the last time I looked at the question) it is practically impossible
    to get one's data (saved emails, saved calendar entries, etc.) out of
    the Outlook database in usable form. In particular, emails with
    attachments are practically beyond reconstruction.

    Mozilla-based email systems use plain mbox/Eudora format, which at least
    maintains the emails in a way that's easy to understand.

    Me, I use mutt. GUI-based mail clients are just too slow.

    Most languages are dramatically underdescribed, and at least one is 
    dramatically overdescribed.  Still other languages are simultaneously 
    overdescribed and underdescribed.  Welsh pertains to the third category.
