Thunderbird .6

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I could swear I saw another Thunderbird thread but I couldn't find it in search! Anyway, I decided to finally try Thunderbird. I don't see any place to put my mail password in though in the set up "Wizard" or Prefs. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

    I'm really enjoying it. Very capable and clean email client.

    It looks and acts like Microsoft Outlook Express.

    It's Open Source.


    Should those really be considered advantages?

    It has adaptive junk filtering (like Mail).

    It probably will send attachments that my mom's clients can open, unlike Mail (blame her clients, they're probably using Win95).

    I'm going to get her to try it out.

    I quite like it myself, I particular like the vertical message preview pane, which i do not know why all clients don't have.

    Though it is still buggy, I entered 2 accounts in and had to restart it in order to enter in a password for the second account. And it would be nice to have multiple account inbox messages collected into one folder as an option.

    Other than that though it's a big improvement from mozilla's old bundled client though the vertical view is the only thing keeping me using it.
