Combines all I need for a desktop client.


Still one of the best alternatives to Microsoft Outlook

With emails you can go two ways

  • Dedicated client (outlook)
  • Web client (gmail, etc)

Thunderbird is still a great alternative to microsoft outlook

Has lots of plugins

The best ones in my opinion are these in image link below

It has one of the most transparent configuration dialogs. That caused me to trust Thunderbird more than any other mail program. In addition, it allows a lot of customizations through config and extensions.

It has a good interface and it's very complete. Run perfectly.


Excellent (ONLY as an e-mail client)!

It needs some Add-ons though:

  • Enigmail (PGP)
  • FireTray ( Because it can not start hidden and can not be closed to tray on default!... In the name of Jesus Christ i beg you, fix this! This is a MUST HAVE function in every program what made for communication! )

Missing Functions:
- 'Send Without Subject' warning handler - can't turn this warning off, annoying , there are unofficial add-ons and therefore they are not recommended
- OTR messaging for the XMPP account, without it no one should use the chat! Very,very stupid move from its devs not implementing it to! (They started it they should finish it,lazy work)


I like it

about Thunderbird and The Bat · ·

Really, I am not an expert, but this mailing agent works for me. I attached couple of mail boxes to it and use it daily. No bugs admitted.
I consider this the best app for Mac, for Windows I use The Bat


Had potential but...

about Thunderbird and Postbox · · -1 Helpful

Unfortunately the only working IMAP mail client (portable thanks to John T. Haller) which supports PGP and S/MIME.

Thunderbird has the ugliest UI in the universe, never ever seen such an ugly program before.

Very disturbing: If one wants to reply to an HTML mail (HTML mails are standard) Thunderbird is inserting weird color lines which should replace the ">" quotes. A no-go for me. No way to switch back to the original ">" or ">>". Postbox (Thunderbird for money) offers a quotes but answering at the top of an email makes no sense to me.


Freezes ...

about Thunderbird and Evolution · ·

... when dealing with big POP3 and IMAP Accounts (>3000 Emails, 300 MB) on Windows 7 x64.

Tried Evolution ... Works great.
