My fresh install of Thunderdud is borked, if I have it open and move any window, it opens blank write window that you can't close.

Thunderbird is basically the only "good" option for Windows that I know of...

You could try Windows Live Mail.

If you won't miss any archived mail or stored passwords you can't remember, try deleting your profile folder under: \AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird
That usually gets Thunderbird working again for me.

I've used Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird, and WLM is really slow with IMAP. It takes a good 2-5 seconds on each folder when you check for messages, which adds up if you have many folders.

I have to run 3.1 something or other because our AV doesn't have a plugin for the newer versions yet.

All this grief because they're too cheap to pay for the Exchange licenses...
