Comparative Mail Client Review Includes Mozilla 1.6 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5

Friday March 5th, 2004

Fuzzy sent us a link to a comparative review of several mail clients, including Mozilla 1.6 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5. The review focuses on applications for Unix platforms, with Microsoft Outlook 2002 included as a reference point. Mozilla and Thunderbird win praise for their excellent IMAP support, though the total lack of a virtual/search folders feature is noted. The way that users are forced to have separate folder hierarchies for each account is also listed as a drawback.

#2 Separate folder hierarchies

I think it would be more natural to have the possibility of configuring mozilla in such a way that all mail arrives to the same tree-branch. Practically all of my mail arrives in one account. Although for the outside world, I might have different 'identities' (email adresses), I don't really see myself as needing that distinction in my email program, for myself. It requires good thinking on part of the developers though, because perhaps it would not always be so easy to distinguish those 'identities' with only one folder hierarchy (like replying to an email with the right 'From' address).
