I’ve added extensions to make Thunderbird EXACTLY wat i want it to do…the only thing i have trouble with is getting the calendar add-on (lightning .3) to allow printing. I have mine connected to my gmail account and calendar so i use it a few hundred times a day. 6 years ago
Oh, this is very difficult to me but really I give it up.
I can’t change Microsoft Outlook with any program at all. Think about it, it is an E-Mail Client with a lot of features. It is an excellent Personal Manager for events and so on. The Content feature is very very very useful. So I can’t change this program to one that gives me only one features.
I have to say Thunderbird is not too bad. I used it to receive my university mails and I used Delete Duplicate Email to delete them and then receive them again to Microsoft.
I’m looking for Thunderbird 2 and I’m looking for program not just E-mail Client.

Oh, I’m using Microsoft product for ever. I think I have to make some changing in my life. I liked Firefox a lot and I would like to use Thunderbird.

As an avid Firefox fan, I can’t believe I haven’t heard an even greater buzz about Thunderbird. Yes, Internet Explorer sucks—but Outlook sucks much worse. I was at my wit’s end, what with it constantly crashing in the midst of long emails, randomly experiencing connection problems, and what have you.
Thunderbird is fabulous so far. Its junk mail filter is taking a little time to adjust, but since the concept is fresh, I don’t mind taking the time to mark incoming items as junk or not junk.
Funny how changing your email application can make it feel like you’re running a whole new computer! My Sony Vaio is blazing with my current Firefox/Thunderbird setup. 7 years ago
I have used it for a few years and have no plans on changing it anytime soon! 7 years ago
My husband installed thunderbird along with migrating all of my outlook email, but I installed a couple extensions on my own along with a nifty theme and the calendar program. The cool part about the calendar program is the feature to download and share calendars so as examples, I downloaded one for moon phases and famous artists birthdays. Now if just the rest of the family used the program, we could share a family birthday calendar! 7 years ago
Maybe this will be worth it later. I just downloaded it, but I don’t see this will be better than just going on the web at this point. There is too much going on, and the thought of downloading all my folders…no. Not happening. I am still a webmailer. 7 years ago
I have been using Thunderbird (and Firefox) for quite some time now. They do everything I need without all the bloat of “other” applications. And if I want to add things, there are plenty of extensions to do that. 7 years ago
These are instructions for Gnome Desktop 2.10.0 on Fedora Core 4.
Click on Desktop then Preferences then More Preferences then Preferred Applications then click on the Mail Reader Tab select Thunderbird. Close the box and you are ready to go.
Hope this helps 7 years ago

Using Firefox and Thunderbird has allowed me to break free of AOL!!! 8 years ago
I moved from PocoMail to Thunderbird two months ago. It’s not perfect, but much better than Outlook (Express).What I like better in Thunderbird:
- the speed
- the user interface
- the spam filter 8 years ago
I used to use M2 from Opera – Opera uses a database which is better than Thunderbird, but Thunderbird handles attachments and HTML and IMAP much better… (Though Opera is better at handling spam.. oh my: but I’m with Thunderbird at the moment :)

Not perfect, but better than mail at this time…

Definitely worth it for the great decrease in spam and viruses. (And it reduces Outlook’s market share, which can’t be a bad thing) 8 years ago
