Lightbulb Incredimail on SuSE 9.1


I am about to upgrade to SuSE 9.1 from Windows XP and I would like to know if my favorite email client "Incredimail" will work on SuSE? If I have to use Wine to run it I am fine with that. I just want to know if it will even run at all because I know some programs don't run even if you use Wine and so I was just wondering if Incredimail is one of these programs. So if someone could let me know that would be great.

I dont recommend wine for anyone because theres a superior fork called "Crossover office" which essensially is wine but its made simple.

Get the 30day trial from http://www.codeweavers.com/site/products/cxoffice/ (theres a trial link on the left side of the page).

If however this program requires directx then you will need yet another fork of wine. a product called "WineX" which is basically Wine with DirectX capabilities. You get that from www.transgaming.com. sorry. no trial. its $5 a month.
you can however download and compile your own from CVS for free.
