I tried, really, but its not that easy...
There are some annoying details about usability.....

I also tryied to put Thunderbird instead of OutLook.
My father used it for a while, and he liked the anti-spam features
(after learning how to use it). But after a week or so he asked me if
he can go back to Outlook, also because of some usability issues.
Firefox is OK and he's still using it. He find it a bit slower than IE
though.

Avi
