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.

The review of Kmail says:


One notable feature is that if the message mentions any of the words "attachment" or "attached" and you did not actually attach something you will be asked if you intended to do this; a small, but very useful feature.

The same notable and useful feature is found in Pegasus for Windows. It would make a nice addition to Tbird.
