I've always found Thunderbird to be the easiest, even on Windows.

What are you used to? If it's Outlook, you might like Evolution.

Though I almost jokingly suggested pine (I happen to like it), what exactly was too hard/difficult/confusing about Thunderbird? I'm pretty sure there are a lot of people who are going to be more than available to help you out with it.

I know I keep asking questions, but what didn't 'work correctly? Many of the most popular email clients (KMail, Thunderbird, Outlook(-Express), and even Eudora) have a very similar profile layout / management system. Name, reply-to address, signature capabilities, out-of-office mailers, the whole thing.

Just trying to help get more information so we can figure out what may be better suggestions for you for mail clients

Hi Again: Well I'll start from the beginning I installed Thunderbird I started it up. everything at that point was fine.There wasn't a profile listed so i started to create one, it wouldn't let me create at default location write error! so I made a dir @ my home directory. I configured everything got my mail everthing was cool. I exited thunderbird. when i restarted there was no profile listed!!
i had to create a profile and go to my home dir to get thunderbird to run. I got tired of doing this everytime checking e-mail! i asked for help! no seem to understand what was going on! I guess i gave-up on it & moved on

I switched from Thunderbird to Sylpheed-claws the other day, it's a tad more lightweight and does all the same stuff
