"It's alright"

July 13, 2005  |  By Phoenix_Hacker

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

It's a solid email client that isn't microsoft. Much better than Outlook Express but hey, what isn't?

Cons

The calander extension isn't very good and it's just barely on par with Outlook 2000. Mozilla can do better.

"The best email client"

July 13, 2005  |  By Flamed

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

Very easy to use, customizable interface, work really well with IMAP mail server. When I deleted an email on IMAP server with Thunderbird, it is gone. Unlike thunderbird, microsoft outlook express and outlook 2003 still keep them the inbox with a crossed line, very annoying.

Cons

None, an integrated hotmail or HTTPS email server support will be nice.

"Thunderbird. Everything you need."

July 03, 2005  |  By Nighted

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

Want skins? Newsgroups? Addons like PGP, smilies, RSS feeds, and too many other amazing extension to mention...seriously, go over to Mozilla.org, it will blow your mind at how much you can customize this client. Oh one more thing...IT'S COMPLETELY FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Cons

For the price, none.

"Great alternative to Outlook Express."

June 29, 2005  |  By stargazer

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

I now use T-Bird for my e-mail. I like the junk mail feature. Works great for newsgroups too.

Cons

Address book is a little clumsy to me. It takes a while to learn how to use effectively.

"WOW! This is easy to use!"

June 27, 2005  |  By Better_than_unemployment

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

We have 3 e-mail pop-accounts that all used the same computer with Outlook Express, what a pain in the #ss. My computer novice family easily adapted to Thunderbird. Plus it has some pretty cool extensions. I am trying to get everyone to use the calendar extension.

Cons

Not enough viruses. With this program I feel like I am wasting money on virus software.

"Let me explain why Thunderbird is great if you have the proper preparations..."

June 21, 2005  |  By TJ Thompson

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

As long as your computer is fast and is free of adware and spyware, Thunderbird should run smoothly. However, my computer isn't the fastest, and might have something hidden that I cannot find through running Ad-Aware Professional, so it slows down Thunderbird specifically.

If you are properly prepared, go for it! Try it out! It's part of the Mozilla family, afterall, so it's awfully not awful!

Cons

If you aren't prepared, try it anyway for a few weeks to a month. If it works, great! If not, do not continue, because your mail might be tracked and read without your consent. I don't know, so play it safe if you're unsure.

"God awful software"

June 08, 2005  |  By Cheese61

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

It's free

Cons

Utterly user unfriendly. Good for computer geeks, college students and the jobless who have time on thier hands to learn the ropes. Everyone else beware, help files are confusing, nothing is intuitive and...just avoid it. There are better free email clients and, by the way, this is the WORST usenet reader out there.

Just awful.

"Very nice, but too slow for my system"

June 02, 2005  |  By ajfengr

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

It all just makes sense and does what it should do. I also like that it handles multiple accounts easily.

Cons

On an ancient system running Windows 98, this program slows everything down to a crawl. I realize my machine is a dinosaur, but Thunderbird is slower BY FAR than other Email clients such as The Bat. However, I've never used Outlook, so I probably don't know the meaning of "slow" yet. HAHA

"thunderbird rules!"

June 01, 2005  |  By dburr13

 |  Version: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2

Pros

THUNDERBIRD is faster, safer, and more user friendly than OUTLOOK...OUTLOOK seems old and clunky in comparison.
