    • Mailbird is a nice looking mailclient. But it lacks of nearly everything that outlook has, except for the mail handling. There is no calendar and no real contact management. The main "feature" that mailbird has is the integration of 3rd party plugins (Google, Asana, ...). This is a nice idea but NOT a outlook killer at all. MrAlternativeJan 2017 Disagree   Agree

On April 28th, 2016 no new/changed E-Mail-Filter-Rules can be added/saved to 483 existing rules -1 Helpful

about Apr 2016

I have already 483 active rules. You cannot filter rules to find double rules, which should be changed or deleted.
On April 28th, 2016 no new E-Mail-Filter-Rules can be added to 483 existing rules in my Even if I deleted some rules, other rules cannot be canged and new rules cannot be added. If I click "save a changed rule" the saving procedure does not finish.

I hope that Microsoft soon repairs this big bug with the E-Mail-Filter-Rules.

I have an account for, one for and one for, all three with the same userid, and now I can't rename or add alias so I can have the service from MS on their new email, because it 'isn't available'. FAIL Microsoft. BIG FAIL. Now out there someone is got my userid on the, while I keep the old MS 'stars' (hotmail, msn, live). I believe is logic to assign priority on merging services like this on the users that already got the userid asigned to them, and not what is happening right now. When switched services, users had the choice to keep userid on the new service. Now what will be next? first was hotmail, then msn, then live, now outlook... will it be greenmonkeys? cinnamonfarts? milkwart? People at MS is getting it wrong. Now they opened again the door for impersonators and other garbage.


Only one forwarding rule is allowed in (beta)

In Google Mail there are more than one forwarding rules allowed, what is very necessary.

Defining a 2nd forwarding rule is denied:

Defining a 2nd forwarding rule is denied

I like the idea of hopes and opportunities

I think it is also necessary to be able to change the position (chronological order) of forwarding rules or rules setting a category, which unfortunately is not possible at Google Mail also. If one rule sets a category and another later operated rule has a category as precondition, it is very necessary to be able to change the position of rules.

Without this features, the rules become very complicated, because you cannot subdivide the rule-tasks to more different-rules by using categories, defined by pre-operated rules.

I hope that will not have this big disadvantage of GMail, if it will be out of the beta-stage.
It seems that has many of the big advantages of Gmail (send from other addresses), it would be fine if could provide the biggest advantage of Yahoo-Mail, the 500 throw-away-addresses. If the first characters of the throw-away-addresses could be choosed more freely, could become the greatest email-service.

"Aliases joins an existing multiple e-mail address feature offered in both Hotmail and Google's Gmail that uses a plus symbol after a user name, but before the @ symbol. Users would then add any word after the plus symbol to create an identifiable address (e.g. This lets messages get filtered into folders, while also providing a way to see if that retailer you bought something from sold your address to a third party."
