[RESOLVED] I can't print e-mail properly

Since the new sys that I put together in jan has win 7, I had to get a 3rd party e-mail client.

So, I got one called "Post Box".
I chose it because it was much like outlook which I have become accustomed to and, it's full featured.
Also it was inexpensive.

However, I can not print emails properly with it. I just get a bunch of meaningless symbols and letters.
The same e-mails print fine in my other systems
Also, I have no problems printing "outlook" (former Hotmail) emails on this sys .

I went over every configuration I could find but nothing worked.
Their support is mainly just a large list of FAQs but nothing applies.

Any ideas? What configuration in an e-mail client might be causing this?
As it stands now, if I get an email on this sys that I have to print, I have to also open the same e-mail on another sys to print it .

Are you running 64-bit Windows 7? If so, this from the Post Box site-

"Note: only 32-bit versions of Postbox are supported on Windows at this time."

Yes, 64 bit. I did not know that it only supported 32 bit . I don't know how I missed that.
It said Win 7 compatible....... who runs 32 bit Win 7?

Anyway, like I said, it was cheap.
Thanks.

Any recommendation for a 64 bit mail client?

EDIT :
I just installed "Mozilla Thunderbird" and it seems to be fine for my purposes.
Thanks for your help. :)

Mozilla Thunderbird +1

We need a thumbs up/thumbs down rating system here like techreport.com

....... who runs 32 bit Win 7?
Apparently some do. I visit my laptop maker's website frequently to see what business laptops it has on sale, and lately it has had a number of very nice machines, nicely configured and deeply discounted, but 32-bit, and I, like you, don't want that. I don't want to be "RAM-constrained."

Maybe that is why they are in the Inventory Clearance section, you think?:rolleyes:

I'll 'just add that I made Fire Fox my default browser on this sys a few months ago months ago but, I did not realize they also had a great e-mail client. :)

BTW, I m now reading that some no longer want Thunderbird because it is no longer being developed but, who cares as long as it already does everything you need very well ....

I'm currently running some apps that were originally developed for Win 95 and they still work perfectly ( with 64 bit) and that is all that matters to me.
