Comments about Claws Mail as a Alternative to Thunderbird
Despite the style, Claws is super fast and allow you to programs it with Perl and Python which is great for marketing automation.9
It's a good, lightweight alternative, but the UI is clunky and it misses HTML message composing. You have been warned!14
No HTML compose is the only reason I don't switch to it. We're not in 1980 anymore.15
very good alternative under linux. I can not say the same under windows since fancy plugin is very buggy.-1
Much faster than thunderbird which cloaks on weak machines.7

Comments about Evolution as a Alternative to Thunderbird
I use both Thunderbird and Evolution, sometimes Claws-Mail. Evolution is the only one that can show the real "received" date in scams I have been receiving for months. In a today's scam Evolution shows "sent date" (falsified) 14-12-2019 and "received date" 30-01-2023 (evidently true). Thunderbird and Claws-Mail show 14-12-2019 in both columns.1
Unfortunately, only available on Linux, not on Windows, not on MacOS. Otherwise promising.0
well, I use cinnamon desktop, Thunderbird does not display 24 hour format but AM/PM for starters. Also, I use the built-in acount manager and Thunderbird does not "talk" with that as well.. Evolution does sync my CALDAV and CARDDAV from this. Thunderbird needs plugins for this and these plugins also make Thunderbird unstable (lightning). Since I like to keep things "clean", Evolution is my software of choice ATM...0
Has a nice Gui, works fast and has many options. Still some functions are not intuitive. Good alternative to Thunderbird0
Web-browser, advanced e-mail, newsgroup and feed client, IRC chat, and HTML editing in one application. Itis built on the open source Mozilla Gecko engine, the same code which underlies Thunderbird and is the base for the Firefox browser.
- - SeaMonkey is the most popular Mac alternative to Thunderbird.
Comments about SeaMonkey as a Alternative to Thunderbird
SeaMonkey is both a WEB BROWSER and EMAIL CLIENT. It's the successor of Mozilla Application Suite or Netscape Communicator, resp. Further it includes also a news client program, an HTML editor (SeaMonkey Composer) and an IRC client (ChatZilla).21
Unfortunately doesn't support synchronization with CardDAV address books.0
It has all of Thunderbird's features and many more.15
More of a web browser than an email client-9
Geary is an email application built around conversations, for the GNOME 3 desktop.
Comments about Geary as a Alternative to Thunderbird
Only IMAP. No support for local folders.1
Doesn't have an address book1
Easy to set up. Thunderbird doesn't connect anymore with hotmail and yahoo. No address book.-21

Comments about Mailspring as a Alternative to Thunderbird
Simple, more streamlined UI and easily customizable.4
Great alternative, especially for casual users. Simple, streamlined UI, feels fresh.1
Need to create an account on a third-party company to access your email.56
Unable to even find an address book or ability to import a csv file from previous mail client. You lose me when things are made so "modern-clean" that I have to consult a manual or Google things.0
nice interface (if you are talking about the feature, kcontact/kmail is the best, but this has a nice interface)-3
Betterbird is a fine-tuned version of Mozilla Thunderbird, Thunderbird on steroids, if you will.
Comments about Betterbird as a Alternative to Thunderbird
Its Thunderbird, just Better. No Import needed, as it uses the same profile Folder!3
Betterbird does everything that Thunderbird does (it's a soft fork), while improving bugs and features.
Because it's a soft fork, it retains the security implementations of Thunderbird.
Thunderbird actually implements many of the bug fixes created by Betterbird, but at a much slower pace.0
No Thunderbird importation.-6
