Windows 7: Thunderbird up for Adoption

I tried Thunderbird but it reminded me of Windows Live Mail, which I hate. I'm still using old Outlook 2003.

I use Thunderbird because it reminded me of Windows Live Mail, which I (used to) love.
:O)

Using it for years, configured just how I need it to be, it's behaving perfect.
Let's hope someone gives it a good home (without destroying it!).

I too have been using TB for years and have never found anything to lure me away from it. We have 16 or 17 email addresses, and use almost exclusively POP because I like having control...

I loved Office 2003, but ESPECIALLY Outlook 2003. Do you still have good luck with it? How about compatibility? Have you run into any snags since it went out of support last year?

I liked Thunderbird up until the end of version 2. But version 3 brought indexing and tabs and slowed right down.
If only there was an updated 2.19.x version ... lol

I use Thunderbird daily. I can't seem to find another free suitable mail client whether using it on windows or Linux. I use IMAP. IMAP keeps emails program updated regardless of which operating system you use. That maybe all besides the point if Microsoft gets rid of their outlook.com IMAP and/or pop servers. That would actually make using Thunderbird or any other mail client useless.

Recently, my t-bird became problematic, shut down several times daily without any warning. Reloaded and re-acquainted myself with e M Client 6. Unlike t-bird, I have not found a way to make eMC save an eml file as an html. I have to find a pay-for that will simply convert eml into html, nothing more, nothing less.

TB is horribly CPU-heavy and a bit slow. I can actually go in and clean out the junk in the inbox with their web access at twice the speed.
Maybe you could change a few settings?

Thunderbird Links don't work

Also right click each folder and choose "Compact" at least once per week.

Other than that try defragging TB's databases.

Yet another "brilliant" call by Mozilla.


The TB spam handler has been broken for ~1 year (on my PC).
I can't successfully mark an email as spam, or remove the spam indicator from messages that aren't spam.

IMO, Firefox was the best browser, until Mozilla decided to add the worst features of other browsers.

I've had problems with Thunderbird three times in the past few years. A full removal (not just uninstalling via add/ remove programs but a full removal) and clean install fixed it each time.

I read a long time ago that Mozilla wanted to ditch Thunderbird and looked at a few other email clients. Like yourself I've got EMClient installed and I'm happy with it. It can import account settings from Thunderbird.

Before that I was using Pegasus Mail as an alternative to Thunderbird just to try it and I still keep it installed even though I don't use it much. However it is possible to save individual emails to html format using Pegasus Mail.
