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.
