Thunderbird has consistently been the least bad mail client. I’ve tested just about every open source client and even a few proprietary ones but nothing fits my needs. A few are close but missing some show-stoppers (like the ability to pull up full threads from a single message in my inbox).
After seeing this I donated again. $100 this time. I recommend everyone else consider how important the software they use is to them. For me Thunderbird is essential and used daily so <$10 a year is a no-brainier.
Thunderbird’s filtering functionality is superior to Outlook’s, excited to see even more improvement of the various features in the future
Works great as an offline, local calendar too. I use it on my PC not for email but purely for its calendar.
Glad to see more attention here it was a sad day when I found Outlook as the best email client on Android. The free ones just aren’t as streamlined and clean. Swipe to archive was also a must for me. Let’s hope thunderbird on Android gives it a run for its money!
fairemail and k9 are pretty good android clients.
Never gone for me either! Also the best solution for archiving mail offline. Good community plugins. I was and remain a big fan of Thunderbird and I’m happy to hear it might make a comeback in the mainstream.
Welcome back Thunderbird. Even if you were never gone from my place.
