"Not bad"

May 19, 2005  |  By po0x

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Pros

Seemed like every other email client

Cons

This program wanted my password every 2 seconds even though I clicked for it to remember it.

I tried to send one email which never did get sent.

I will stick with Incredimail until I find something better.

"Full Featured, Fast & Free!"

May 10, 2005  |  By mistert

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Pros

Well designed, highly configurable UI and lightning fast compared to the full version of Outlook. Great security features. Many useful application extensions and cosmetic themes are available at no cost. Installation is fast and easy. User Forum and Knowledge Base are instantly accessable from Help Menu. Highly recommended for anyone who needs the depth of Outlook but prefers a more streamlined, efficient & safer email interface. Definitely FIVE stars!

Cons

While the installation is a breeze there are dozens of configuration options that might be confusing to users who not email savvy. If you're totally satisfied and comfortable with something like Outlook Express, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail etc., Thunderbird might be a bit more than you need. Users with multiple email addresses should be prepared to spend an hour or two configuring and tweaking the various options and account settings.

"By far the best email client around."

May 08, 2005  |  By prizmatic

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Pros

I love how the client "learns" which mail is spam and which mail is good...auto moves the evil/spam stuff to the junk folder. Saves a lot of deleting required with MS Outlook Express.

"Simply a Warning"

April 24, 2005  |  By Duchess

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Pros

It appears to be similiar to Outlook and well, yeah, it is FREE.

Cons

One thing I discovered that it does NOT support is Hotmail. I clearly remember reading that it supports webmail, yet after downloading and installing I discovered that their definition of webmail and mine must be different. I soon discovered that they do NOT support Hotmail or Netscape mail. Altho I liked the appearance and look of this program, I NEED to be able to access my webmail accounts with the same program as my pop mail accounts. So, I uninstalled. Now, here is when I ran into an issue. Apparently, it resulted from my electing to click yes upon installing if I wanted to set this program as the default email program. Well, after deletion I no longer had access to any email program. I could no longer access Outlook. I ended up having to do a system restore to get my Outlook back.

"Almost perfect."

April 24, 2005  |  By xpil

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Pros

Does have almost everything that an email client needs. Fast, safe, nice interface, handles all protocols (including nntp!), skinnable, very intuitive configuration. And - one of the most important - keeps messages in standard UNIX format, which makes possible to export the messages to any other email system with (almost) no work.

Cons

As I can see, there are two cons:

- Poor import from other clients. Well, it IS possible to import from almost every other email client, but it requires quite good IT knowledge to do it, and it takes too much time (importing gigabytes of email from TheBat! took me about six hours...)

- Poor (but still better than M$O/M$OE) handling very large amounts of email

"Great junk mail processing, but too buggy"

April 23, 2005  |  By yuanliu

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Pros

mail filtering and many other nice features. It is junk mail processing that has been keeping me using it ever since Thunderbird 0.9 came out.

Cons

1.too buggy -- often dies or loses mail. Mail editor has problems in moving the cursor. Today, it even refuses to get mail from one of my accounts, which I can get in from browser and do see mail there. Multi-stream problems also, especially in compacting folders.

2. Does not handle double-character smoothly. I can elaborate if anyone wants to listen.

"reinstallation nightmare!"

April 16, 2005  |  By martinw1200

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0

Cons

Don't even think of reinstalling this program! It simply will not accept the old mailboxes, and it has no feature for importing its own mailboxes like most email clients do. Everything lost!
