I don't mean to hijack your thread, Mystic Falls, but you could try Windows Live Mail.
if you're like me and don't want web-based email.
I use Win 7 so I'm not sure if you can get away with this, but I have a 2009 version of Win Live Mail and I do not sign into Windows Live Essentials so I have no bells, no whistles, just as close a program to OE as I can get...though they did make some peculiar changes I haven't figured out a reason for yet.
A second Drafts folder under a section called Storage Folders?
A second Sent Items folder ditto?
Oh, well, it's reasonably close to OE and not web-based, which is enough reason to get it, IMO.Whatever you do, do not download Yahoo Mail!
Like Yahoo Groups which are heading rapidly for the bone yard thanks to Yahoo's new management, Yahoo Mail is a horrible mess you do not want to contend with.
