    It is just too big, has a steeper learning curb, and bloated for the user population that MS M&C targets. It rather is an alternative to MS Outlook.

    The e-mail functions are great and customisable but Thunderbird cannot run in background. It has to be open to receive e-mails so in my opinion it is not a replacement to Microsoft Mail & Calendar.
