I'm sure Bill wasn't trying to advertise, but his opinion is suspect
(1) He works for the company that makes TAO.
(2) His mail goes through his company's mail system.
Where I work (not an e-mail vendor), we are switching from TAO to
a combination of cc:Mail and NotesMail. Most of our users don't like
the TAO user interface.
I didn't read you original post, but if you are looking for an e-mail
client for reading internet mail, try Pegasus Mail by David Harris.
It's great for mailing lists, like this one because it has very easy
to set up filters for sorting (and deleting) new messages.
