Thunderbird 24.0

Thunderbird is a free, open-source, cross-platform application for managing email and news feeds. It is a local (rather than a web-based) email application that is powerful yet easy-to-use. Thunderbird is developed, tested, translated and supported by the folks at Mozilla Corporation and by a group of dedicated volunteers. Thunderbird is free. Thunderbird has lots of cool features. Thunderbird gives you control and ownership over your email. There are lots of add-ons available for Thunderbird that enable you to extend and customize your email experience.

Thunderbird gives you IMAP/POP support, a built-in RSS reader, support for HTML mail, powerful quick search, saved search folders, advanced message filtering, message grouping, labels, return receipts, smart address book LDAP address completion, import tools, and the ability to manage multiple e-mail and newsgroup accounts.

  • Tabbed email
  • An Archive feature similar to the one in GMail
  • Lightning fast search
  • Smart folders

My favorite new E mail software is eM Client 5 http://www.emclient.com/

I think it's a lot better then Thunderbird, Windows Live mail, Google Mail Bird, Opera Mail and more. If your looking for a new e mail client that has lots of features,very light, updated often and has outstanding customer support then give eM Client a look

eM Client 6 will be released soon!

And before you say anything no I do not work for eM Client I am just someone who has been looking for a good replacement for Windows Live Mail for years now and when I found out about eM Client I was hooked the minute I started using it

Really the only bad thing about eM Client would be that you can only use 2 accounts with the Free version. If you want unlimited account you need to pay for the pro version which I did and it's well worth it I think.

Actually i'm testing the free version out right now. Very impressive. I love how easy it imported from thunderbird and I REALLY love the build in calender.

Looks very nice and the tasks integration is a big plus - but thunderbird still has more functions and wider support and using EMClient feels substandard.

Cripe!

I JUST checked my Thunderbird for updates and it got nothing. I have the most current version as of now, according to the update checker, and it's at 17.0.8.

How the heck did this thing jump all the way up to 24? I know that's where Firefox is at, but cripe!! Their website still has my version listed even.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. But the Thunderbird development has been really weird the last couple of years. Just glad it's somewhat still being updated-

Versions 18-23 have been "Beta" versions only and so were never pushed to the "Release" channel.

Version 24 will officially leave Beta later today, and will then be pushed via auto-update to the Release channel - so hold your horses, you'll get it in the coming hours if you're on 17.0.8

Thunderbird 24 ESR will be out in a few mins/hours. Thunderbird doesn't add much funtionality so releasing a new version every 6-8 weeks is a waste of money, a new version every 6 months or so is a better decision.

First big release in a while. I wish Mozilla would go back to its roots an focus on this rather than other projects Firefox OS.
