I'm getting very frustrated with the slowness of outlook, and the fact that it can't even follow my simple 'rules' and organise my email properly.
I really want to make the switch to Mozilla Thunderbird but the only thing is will I be able to synchronize my PPC with Thunderbird?

Any thoughts? Will it sync with pocket outlook? can i use Pocket Informant with it (i know this uses the microsoft data file)

Any tips or points in the right direction would be appreciated

I'm sorry to hear you have problems with Outlook. I have to say that I've moved from MS Outlook client to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 at home (running on Windows Server 2003 inside a Virtual PC machine) and it's much better. Also I now have push e-mail (check my article on Exchange ActiveSync always-up-to-date AUTD). It also seems to have solved all problems with duplicates.

I know Intellisync sells alternative syncing solutions, however their page says it's compatible with "Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, Lotus Notes, and Novell GroupWise" only...
