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.

still the best in it's class ! one thing THunderbird needs to improve in is a better export account settings and import account settings to a new or different computer 1 click simplicity ! like this tool I have used to back up and reinstall fire fox on another computer this is a godsend http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/
this is where Microsoft outlook has failed miserably

Still the best email software.

Lightening upgraded seamlessly to ver 3.3. I dont use any other add on's or themes, so I dont know if there are issues with those. This a very nice stand alone e-mail client for those of us who dont need a lot of bells and whistles.

Everything looks the same in this major number upgrade. Except my favorite theme doesn't work. I guess I'll have to live with that for security purposes. Still the best free email client out in the world.
Reviewing 24.6.0 (Jun 30, 2014)
Half finished and no longer in active development. Tab integration is half-assed, you can't even compose a new message in a tab.
Is Mozilla thunderbird the best all over the net? Please, I need a reply!
