Editors' Review

Working with multiple e-mail addresses and inboxes often requires a management client. Mozilla Thunderbird for Mac, despite its dated look, performs well as an open-source e-mail manager.

As an open-source project, this program is available as freeware with no restrictions or payments required. Download and installation occurred quickly and without any problems. After initial setup, which prompted us as to whether the program should be the default email client, Mozilla Thunderbird for Mac welcomed us with a well-designed main interface. Aesthetically, the graphics were dated and would have been appropriate for a program several years old, as opposed to a newer application. As freeware, this was not an overall detriment. While there were no dedicated instructions, menus easily walk the user through entering email data for syncing. The application quickly began downloading the existing inbox contents. Buttons for composing emails and other typical functions were well placed and easy to locate. Even with multiple email addresses entered, it was easy to read the messages and determine from which address they originated. The email reading window was also large, an appropriate choice for a manager.

For those looking to manage their email using a client, Mozilla Thunderbird for Mac functions well and provides all expected features.
