    Default Email client for Windows

    Hi - I don't want to start a flame war, but I'm genuinely struggling (and have done for years) to find a decent email client for Windows.

    In my opinion, and I believe this echoes Zimbra's efforts, search is critical. I personally also make use of tags. Beyond that, I don't have any particular email requirements, yet there aren't any great clients out there for Windows.

    Outlook Express: Actually does IMAP very well, but tagging isn't present, and search is poor
    Outlook (IMAP): This is frankly rubbish
    Outlook (Zimbra connector): Better than IMAP, but I don't think the search exploits Zimbra's great server-side search functionality
    Thunderbird 2: This is what I use, but it's a bit clunky in some places, and search is both slow, and requires you to choose exactly which fields to search.
    Thunderbird 3: Rumoured to have better search, but it's not present in alpha2
    Zimbra desktop: I don't think it supports winmail.dat files, and you have to page through scrollable lists, which seems to be a strange UI. It also uses a lot of disk space.

    In contrast, on the Mac, OS X Mail is pretty good, and Spotlight is brilliant.

    So - what I'm looking for is basically Thunderbird that's got the search capabilities of Spotlight. Does anyone know of anything, or is anyone using another mail client with great success?

    So why not using ZWC (Zimbra Web Client)?

    From your post, I do not see a single reason to use a fat client...
