Impressed with Thunderbird 3

Guest Author

I needed to test to see how Posterous would handle posting to my Oracle blog, Twitter and now Linked-In. And gave me a good chance to write a quick update on how I really like Mozilla Thunderbird 3 for email.

I had used Thunderbird 2 before but I had given it up - in fact I had pretty much moved to Outlook as my primary desktop email client. We also have Zimbra for Web-mail which is nice but sometimes acted wonky in my browser.

In particular I like the new search in Thunderbird 3. It's VERY fast. Fast enough that I have shutdown Google Desktop and forgotten about XOBNI.

So if you are looking for a desktop mail client - with good search. I would suggest giving Thunderbird 3 a try.

    I am in 100% agreement with you. TB3 is really cool. Tabbed interface is another feature that I like.
    I am waiting to see what add-ons would do to it!!!

    I agree with you on TB3 and have made the move at home (from TB2 using IMAP Google)
    The only problem I find:
    1, Will support support it?
    2, When it will get corporate buy in?
    Support always come out of IE products first (from what I see) and with our latest move to Oracle Beehive and the connector I am sure that this will be a while before someone says: "yes, we will develop the same tools going forward"
