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 would like somebody (who knows, obviously) to say whether the mail devs will fix the problem where folders/incoming accounts/outgoing accounts/identities are all mixed together. That way I can decide whether I should stick it out with thunderbird until it gets fixed (I can be patient), or switch to another email client.
