Brian is tired of using Windows Outlook on the Mac. It's just plain boring and he can't do much with it when it comes to task management. Apple Mail is really not much better. What are his alternatives?
Leo says that there's a great power tool that supports Apple Mail called Mail Mate, but it's a bit old fashioned. AirMail is another option that also supports tasks and it's quite pleasing to the eye, but it doesn't support PGP encryption. AirMail also has a send to option that would allows him to send tasks or calendar requests to other apps.
What about spam filtering? Leo uses Spam Assassin. It's server side, meaning that he'll never see the spam.
