I used to use Netscape long ago.  I moved over the 
Thunderbird for mail and newsgroups.
My news server (Giga-News) retains non-binary newsgroups for 
over 10 years, and
Thunderbird's sorting would hang up on such huge lists.  So, 
I moved newsgroup browsing over to Knode.
Not sure if Knode is available on Windows hosts.

But, I still use Thunderbird for email, and find it works 
great.  I have email going back to 1997, and
have imported it from mail reader to mail reader as I 
upgraded.  I can use search functions to find old
email addresses and messages, and use the filters to sort 
various list messages to the proper folders.
