      Thunderbird have not Outlook's express / Live Mail's simplicity. Thunderbird is like evolution Light. Very detail settings. When "some" not work, you cannot write and save draft.

      Among other things, no provisions to open non-system folders to keep different files. You can open one but it doesn't let you type or delete, or in general work on it. It's passable but very far from being similar to WLMail. :)

      Microsoft Office Outlook vs Windows Live Mail opinions
      Some users think Microsoft Office Outlook is a great alternative to Windows Live Mail, some don't.
      It is a fussy programme. I can't view all of my different email feeds in one inbox. The 'rules; and 'junk' filter simply do not work. All in all very disappointing

      Apple Mail vs Windows Live Mail opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Apple Mail is still a legitimate alternative to Windows Live Mail, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      ndlinn It's a great alternative, if you plan on switching to Mac, but there is currently no Windows support, so it’s not a true alternative.
