Whenever I need an app, I just grab whatever Ubuntu offers as the default before I go looking for an alternative, if needed. permalink
Hallelujah, where have you been all my life! permalink
Of course Thunderbird has been around for a while, but I hadn't tried it out in several years, and had pretty much become a slave to Apple's "Mail" program. permalink
The list is too long to mention, but Thunderbird really ticks all the boxes for me. permalink
Most impressive is how it archives all my email and folders from the server and stores it in a local database that has blazingly fast contextual search. Beautiful. permalink
T-Bird's spam function is also outstanding. It outperforms all programs I've used before and even lets you train it's filters before you enabled the filing/deleting of spam messages. permalink
The only weird thing I've noticed is that the default setup places your repliy to an email at the bottom of the original, which does not seem standard email practice. It is easily changed in the Account Prefrences pane. permalink
Bravo to the Thunderbird team. You are kicking ass on helping simple Human Resources manage the biggest info glut in our digital lives. permalink
