Why should you install Mozilla Thunderbird?
Mozilla Thunderbird is a free and open-source email client application, it’s easily customizable and comes with lots of features. Thunderbird was developed by Mozilla Foundation – an American non-profit organization founded in July 2003.
The most crucial piece of software for a computing device is an email client such as Microsoft’s Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird to help the user organize his incoming email. Thunderbird is the leading open-source competitor since it shrugs off any competition by being better organized, having ease-of-access features, and offering a different look and feel to the classic email software program.
Security and spam control were among one of the most important issues for the development of Mozilla Thunderbird – you can train the junk/spam filters by marking them as spam from within the inbox. There’s even an anti-phishing module built-in to the client capable of warning the user of the suspected phishing attempt when the message is received.
The Mozilla Thunderbird User Experience
When you install Mozilla Thunderbird, the setup should be simple enough, just type in your email address and the software will automatically explore all the available domains and grab the settings from the servers. When you’re asked whether to choose between POP3 or IMAP, rather pick POP3 since it keeps a copy of all your emails for offline access if you don’t have a solid internet connection.
Thunderbird also allows the addition of using Google Calendar, and importing the data straight into the client – you’ll be able to view all of your events but not edit them or create new ones – to add this feature you’ll need to download the extension available from here.
