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.

Actually, I think I read in the Mozilla 1.7alpha announcement that such functionality was checked in a few days ago and will be in Mozilla 1.7 - email aliases or 'identities', I mean.

And I know that I can filter multiple accounts into one hierarchy, but it's like what you say about 'dummy values for account addresses', a silly way to have to operate. It's not that big a big deal though.
