MAIL PROGRAM GURU'S NEEDED
I'm in PC hell right now. PC died last week so I'm in the middle of getting a new one spec'd out and built [taking too long], but I'm working on the laptop till then.
Using Windows Mail on the laptop, corrupted today. I hit reply or create new mail and it just freezes. Running sfc/scannow but not holding out allot of hope.
Installed Outlook  because I had it on my Office disc, but it will not allow me to attach individual signature files the way I can in Outlook Express or Windows Mail, it's only allowing me to choose a single signature that will automatically be added to each email.
I use signature files for the 20 odd information files that get added to replies, like, how to pay through Paypal, instructions for sending me a check, wire transfer, you name it I've had a signature file that saves me hours of repetitive typing. They do not attach but get added to the end of the reply as text.
I need a mail program that will allow me to work this way, or an easy to understand alternative. Doing a reinstall of Windows isn't an option right now.
Mozilla Thunderbird, Opera, what's out there that interfaces like Outlook Express but will allow the use of signatures the way I use them, and import and store 1/2 million filled emails from OE, since OE is no longer supported in Win 7 I have to go to some email program, Windows Mail has been fine and is near identical to OE, but it's a mess right now. I need something to get me through the next week or so [although worse comes to worse I can muddle through until the new PC is done].
Any help or advice greatly appreciated, just remember I am not extremely literate to the jargon, although I can understand most of it.
