Publisher's Description

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.

Gettin' REEEAL tired of having my profile completely wiped when upgrading. Happens about every third release of TB. Would also be nice if they would natively support Gmail contacts and calendar, seeing as how their the most-used services of their kind. But hey, it would probably take devs three years to get it working right so maybe its just as well we have to rely on GContactSync and Provider for Google Calendar. That said, this is still the only totally free desktop email client that does most of what anyone could want and as far as I've heard its NOT going to be ruined like Firefox. For those of us fighting against the dumbing down of computing and the webification of everything, TB is an invaluable tool.

Still the best email client. No problems encountered.

The current version has been delivered with some flaws as are pointed out on a Ghacks.com article.

I'd stick with the previous version for the time being, even though this new version has some decent updates, it still doesn't work as advertised.

I have used Thunderbird even when it was part of Mozilla Suite and have always found it to be excellent; stable, fast and rarely found bugs. Best email client around.

Been using it for several years but with punctual problems with images embedded with different encodings, witch results in totally deformated text on the receiver side or looping when sending the mail.
Lets see if this version finally solves it, at least it says it does.

Just checked the problem is not yet solved (10-04-2017).

Much improved, faster and less RAM hungry than previous versions.

How are some users rating Thunderbird 5 star?
Its very heavy on system resources, super bloated, slow, importing mail from Outlook 2007 crashes which is a known bug since version 25 and its still not fixed. Its probably one of the better free options, its not complete junk, but compared to The Bat! this email program is a joke.

Simple mail client that does what it should, you may need go elsewhere if you need more features or complexity, never had problems with it on any Windows version.

Pros: Yahoo seems to actually work in this build. Its always a roll of the dice though.

Cons: Profile deleted during upgrade. AGAIN. Calendar still displays alerts *before* checking to see if they have already been viewed. Will this ever be fixed? LOL, why am I even asking?

Bottom Line: Gettin' REEEAL tired of having my profile completely wiped when upgrading. Happens about every third release of TB. Would also be nice if they would natively support Gmail contacts and calendar, seeing as how their the most-used services of their kind. But hey, it would probably take devs three years to get it working right so maybe its just as well we have to rely on GContactSync and Provider for Google Calendar.

Hangs after installing Windows 10. No solution, no clear alternative.

Overall decent client but has very inconsistent behavior from machine to machine and even between installs on the SAME machine. To sync contacts and calendars with popular services you'll need some addons. Default UI is pretty homely and not as configurable as it should be so you'll want some addons for that as well.

Great basic client - No problems on Windows 10, handles multiple addresses with ease, no frills but very stable & reliable.

I like this new version with the Lightning calender already built it. Still rock solid email software.
