Arrow Which Email Client??

Hi Folks,

Firstly I want to say sorry in advance if this has already been thrashed, but I could not find the answer on the forums.

I want to know what software, email client to be exact, people are using while at sea with there Iridium Sat Phones.

On our last trip we used ASTMail, but I was not happy with it, we had real trouble sending mail, and had to connect 3x to send one message. I see quite a few other options like:

1. XGate by GMN
3. Sailamail (not Sailmail)
4. UUPlus

I like the look of XGate, and it seems popular, it also sends a text when a mail arrives, but I would love to hear others opinions on here, and experiences.

Does anyone ever bother to time there sending when a satellite is just starting its pass (as opposed to finishing and having the satellite hand the call off to the next satellite risking a broken connection mid-email).
