    Right, I set up my domain and organised hosting, it also comes with e-mail.

    I have unlimited addresses and would like to utilise them in the best way possible - the idea being to have a separate address for each purpose - a couple of main ones, but in general one for each company I sign up online with so can easily bin the ones that send me spam.

    OK, I can read and send the emails online, but that can be quite cumbersome. What I'd like to be able to do is:

    -Download and read e-mails from every address offline.

    -A filter to sort the messages according to accounts, rules, etc

    -Send messages through the offline application (when online obviously).

    -Leave the received messages on the server so I can read them online away from my offline mail storage PC.

    -Not have a load of duplicates created every time I download my mail because I left them on the server after the first time they were downloaded.

    Is this possible? My email server offers me unlimited storage along with POP3 and IMAP access. And if so, what e-mail program to use?

    Microsoft Outlook is the de facto on Windows and the latest version is pretty good, you can pick it up along with all the other Office programs for about £40 with a student discount. If you have POP3 or IMAP access, you just set up the account in Outlook or whatever client you choose to use.

    I have windows live mail and I have my hotmail and gmail email addresses on them. Thats quite good and I think covers what you want.

    Perhaps I didn't fully understand the question, but Mozilla's Thunderbird is very good.
