One of the reasons I use WLM is because it synchronises my contacts as well as my email across all the devices I use Outlook.com on, so that would be an important consideration.  Oh yes, and the reason that thunderbird is as good as it is?  Well, it now has source code formerly used by Eudora, which was made open source a few years back.
