Great email client from the creators of Firefox
Download Mozilla Thunderbird For Windows XP, a desktop email client alternative to Microsoft Outlook from the developers of Firefox.
Thunderbird is Mozilla’s award-winning and free solution for managing your mail more efficiently. And there are many benefits to switching to it. For example, unlike Mail, it can handle virtual IDs and create addresses on the fly, and it’s widely considered one of the best spam filters out there. More recently, it has been updated with a fluid tabbed interface to make email management easier.
The fact that Mozilla Thunderbird, like Firefox, can be enhanced with all kinds of extensions makes it an extremely competitive email client. It’s also much faster and more stable than before thanks to the Gecko 5 engine.
How to go
Setting up Mozilla Thunderbird is painless. You can quickly import your mail and contacts from your Outlook or Mail account and set up POP3, IMAP, or SMTP accounts in an instant. To stay well organized, Mozilla Thunderbird offers filters to deliver your mail to individual folders and mailboxes. And, of course, there’s a built-in spell checker to make sure your letters are professionally crafted.
What makes Mozilla Thunderbird a bit more unusual is the fact that it comes with an integrated RSS reader. This is a bit outdated nowadays because many people use a separate application – or even Firefox itself – to track RSS feeds, but it can be useful if you want to send mail and follow RSS feeds at the same time while composing emails.
Thunderbird’s search tool is excellent, and searches are performed in real-time as you type. Search results are displayed on a separate tab. Tabs in general are a very big part of Thunderbird and, like Firefox, you can open multiple messages in separate tabs. This is a fantastic feature of Thunderbird, although it tempts you with too many messages at once. Archiving is another handy feature for those who don’t want to delete messages but want to free up space in their inbox.
So what about security? You might think that an open-source email client would be inherently less secure than a paid one, but Thunderbird is surprisingly secure with a pretty bulletproof spam filter. The reason for this is that Thunderbird is regularly updated and built by volunteers who are primarily interested in making a better product, not in profiting from the final product. Security updates are regular but small so as not to slow down Thunderbird.
One of Mozilla Thunderbird’s biggest selling points is that it offers support for Microsoft Exchange, which means it will appeal to Office users who previously opted out of it.
On the downside, the app lacks some finesse in certain areas. Thunderbird still doesn’t have the different types of email messages that Gmail does (although an extension for that can be downloaded separately), and there aren’t multiple options for managing attachments and photos. There is also no calendar, but again, this can be downloaded separately as a ” Lightning Bolt “.
All in all, Thunderbird is a great free alternative to Microsoft Outlook.
