Actually, I do believe that on Windows you can do the same thing, but it is essentially loading the same executable and the same set of libraries. It just starts out with the Mail client instead of the browser.

OE is a separate executable from IE and the common bond between the two is the browser engine. Nothing about OE is loaded on boot except the engine, and if you never get any HTML related mail the engine is never used...so I don't think that you can use the "loads on bootup" as an argument for why OE is faster than Netscape mail.

So speaking of loading on bootup, why not make a loader for Moz that will load essential parts of it into memory on startup similar to the way that IE works? Except make it an executable so that you have the choice to stop it from loading if you want by simply removing it from your startup proggies that get launched. I know Moz loads fast now, but it could be even <I>faster</I> if it steals a trick from Micro$oft.
