Dear DotTechies, and thanks to Ashraf who opened this forum and more,
I have an annoying problem that I suppose I share with many other dotTechies, as we seem to be quite a heterogeneous, language wise and else, group.
I am not using an email client to download my messages but leave them, sometimes with large attachments and all, on the Netaddress server.
I have sorted them reasonably well in folders.
I suggested to the Netaddress support that they make it possible to download attachments separately and remove them from the message leaving the message without attachment on the server. They did that.
I also suggested that they improve so that one can use an email client to download messages folder by folder. They did not do that the way I had hoped.
When I asked the support people, I got the answer that it is possible if I use an email client which supports IMAP.
And I am soon out of space again although I pay handsomely for extra storage.
I receive emails in English, Swedish, Russian, French and German (not that I understand everything that I get at first glance).
Therefore, I have looked for a very good email client. It should support IMAP and Unicode.
I understand that the subject line and the message part sometimes are treated differently, so the subject line can turn up illegible although the message part is alright.
My browser, Maxthon 2, works like a dream.
I have tried Eudora ten years ago, at that time there was only the POP3 alternative that can not separate the email folders.
Now, when I checked Eudora IMAP, it does not support Unicode or utf-8.
I understand that Thunderbird does not support Unicode.
I would appreciate very much getting advices on a good email client that supports IMAP and Unicode/utf-8, both in the subject line and in the message part.
Thank you very much in advance,

As far as I know, Thunderbird supports unicode just fine.
You can set it either as default (so that it covers also the subjects) or manually per message.
I suggest you give it a try. Last week the new version 3 was launched.
Whatever client u try, check the option “leave messages on server” until everything works as you want and then download-remove them all from the server.
