Mozilla Thunderbird is a redesign of the Mozilla mail component. The goal is to produce a cross platform stand alone mail application using the XUL user interface language. The intended customer is someone who uses Mozilla Firefox (or another stand alone browser) as their primary browser and wants a mail client based on mozilla that "plays nice" with the browser.
Reviewing 24.3.0 (Feb 4, 2014)
Been using Thunderbird since the very beginning, never had a single issue with it.
Hands down, it is the best you can get for emails, and on top of that it's free, no need to pay for any of those half assed very buggy emailclients out there.

Good as a basic client, seems stable & no problems lately.

Reviewing 24.0.1 (Oct 12, 2013)
Giving this a slightly lower 4. Mainly because it crashed the few add on/themes i use. Went back to 17.0.9 esr which works fine again. Really saw no major feature changes with this 24 series. So I figured I would play it safe and use the former version. They really don't have to add any new features and it would be ok. Most people have moved on to webmail based email, but I still like the look and feel of T-Bird over my ISP's email page...

Although this is a final? It does show as a beta on the Thunderbird main screen - A good basic mail client.
Is Mozilla thunderbird the best all over the net? Please, I need a reply!
