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.

There's just no substitute for a good email client as using Web UI email stinks to high heaven. It's kind of sad that a lot of what used to make the era of Outlook and Eudora so pleasant was that NO ONE wanted to get saddle with crappy things like Outlook Web or the early Yahoo web-based email UI.

Thunderbird has been plugging along for around 15 years+ years now in some form or another and the more things change, the more it stays the same. Emails clients don't need to change much to be honest. It's a simple word processor that sends and received email. It doesn't need to get more complicated than that. But, it's great to see that PGP integration is finally getting it's due in Thunderbird.

If Mozilla's new offshot company that's handling Thunderbird can FINALLY get PGP right (where countless others have failed miserably), everyone will dump whatever cobbled together software hydra they've been using and switch to Thunderbird.

Like allot of software that was good, this has jumped the shark. They followed firefox into the new version that doesnt allow old themes and add on's. I'll stick with the 60 version series. The morons at Mozilla wonder why firefox lost most of its user base now add thunderbird to the list.

Been using TB since the beginning. As someone who clung to Eudora with a death grip, TB is the *only* decent and stable choice for me. I am glad they finally have 64-bit offering as 32-bit is dead, dead, dead. The performance of 64-bit TB is noticeable when launching the app and doing overall tasks. "Who uses email still?" say you Facebook hugging twonks? Everybody. I aggregate 5-10GB of email per year and 32-bit was chugging along but straining under the load of managing that much email efficiently. These days, people send you 10-20MB emails with monster JPGs and PDFs. 32-bit sucks at handling that well. 64-bit has been like a hot knife through butter managing my emails, filters and calendars. Plus, if it weren't for the calendaring feature and integration with my GMail, I'd forget what the heck I'm supposed to be doing on a daily basis. It's the best, sod the rest!

A big update to version 60. Still rock solid. Be forewarned, lots of old complete themes and add on's don't work with this update. Though I used basically only 1 add (profile switcher) it did work in this version. Also found a couple of complete themes that work with ver 60. Everything else is fine. The calendar add on works. I've had no problems with overall use. Still the email software to use if you don't like your webmail to access your accounts.

60 is a risky update for me, I use a lot of addons and I have no idea how many of them will be useless after the update. Probably lots.

"Would also be nice if they would natively support Gmail contacts and calendar"

I don't think Google opens their private API to third parties for native support. Kind of like sayin' "My Ford should work with Honda parts". Silly.

You can have Google Calendar (and, I think, Contacts) access via Lightning and Provider For Google Calendar.

TB 52.8 ESR works well as an email client and even better with my Google calendars. Waiting on 60 ESR now!

Pros: Still the best client around bar none.

Cons: Has lost a lot of polish and love due to Firefox being the Mozilla developer's golden child.

Bottom Line: There's just no substitute for a good email client as using Web UI email stinks to high heaven. It's kind of sad that a lot of what used to make the era of Outlook and Eudora so pleasant was that NO ONE wanted to get saddle with crappy things like Outlook Web or the early Yahoo web-based email UI.

Pros: I'm sure most users will be happy with the new version.

Cons: If you have sub-folders for collation of correspondence from different clients so you can refer back if required, I have bad news for you. Existing sub-folders on previous version do not travel to the new update . My error, I obviously misread the update details.

Bottom Line: Since yesterday I have rectified the issues I was having. All is back to normal.(Please read pros and cons)

Pros: 64-bit salvation finally here! More robust and far more performant than 32-bit 52.x and previous versions. 64-bit can be installed right over 32-bit but the caveat is once you move to TB 60, there's no going back to 52.x as it makes changes to your profile which are one-way.

Cons: Running a bit behind in terms of parity with Firefox base code. Some Add-ons no longer work.

Bottom Line: Been using TB since the beginning. As someone who clung to Eudora with a death grip, TB is the *only* decent and stable choice for me. I am glad they finally have 64-bit offering as 32-bit is dead, dead, dead. The performance of 64-bit TB is noticeable when launching the app and doing overall tasks.

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. 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.

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.
