    "Not that good... Buggy"

    July 24, 2011  |   By bpazolli


    I actually like the interface


    Slow, sometimes doesn't start up, seems to not end it's task properly when ending it.


    It could of been my computer and if you need an email client and don't have outlook I would probably use this. However in today's day and age your probably better off sticking to gmail or similar online service in my opinion. Having an installed email client on your computer would give you some advantage I would of thought. However, after using it for a week the advantages of an online service became far more evident. Move to the cloud haha.

    The only benefit of an offline client is that they are usually required in office environments. Using a program like davmail you can use thunderbird with most exchange servers. That is about it's only use and if you want true compataility you will be switching to outlook pretty soon anyway.
