Thread: Mozilla Thunderbird

I recently learned about Firefox...it blows IE away, i think.
I also came across thunderbird to view your emails. I was wondering if it is worth downloading and using.
What are your thoughts about this program. I use yahoo right now, is Thunderbird better?

If you are using yahoo for a free yahoo account, then just stick with that. If you are using a paid yahoo account, then you can get pop3 access, I believe, so give Thunderbird a try and see if you like it. It doesn't cost you.

I have Outlook 2003 and Thunderbird and Thunderbird is a lot better.
I use it to check my comcast and gmail email...(\ /)

If you're looking to use it as an alternative to Outlook - I'd go ahead and switch. Most people who I've had migrate from Outlook to Thunderbird are very happy with the change.

Well i went ahead and downloaded thunderbird. But when setting it up it ask for the pop server name for Yahoo. Where would I find this info? I looked around online but what little info I found was not helpfull.

Help setting up Tbird
I am trying to set up my Tbird to interface w/ yahoo. But i searched Yahoo's site and could not find the pop or the other setting tbird ask for. Can anybody help me accomplish this?

Yahoo Free email account? if so pop3 is not available. The only solution i can think of is getting another email account at gmail.com (has a lot of features, big space and pop3 enable)
no need for invite just go hereI miss Dimebag Darrell

What makes Thunderbird better than Outlook?
September 1st, 2005, 05:32 AM #10
Some argue that Outlook does search better than Thunderbird, but I'll disagree hands down. Thunderbird introduced me to e-mail searching. It does it wonderfully, and it does it nice and simple like.
Thunderbird also does message filtering better. Plus it's got built-in spam blocking. It also has RSS feed capability, extensions, skins and better at offline synchro.
I've switched people over to Thunderbird after Outlook has completely mashed their mail. Or after a virus has gotten ahold of their address book. It seems to me, and maybe I'm mistaken, that these problems just don't happen -- or are rare -- with Thunderbird.

Interesting, I have never had any problems with Outlook, works perfectly. But I like to test new software so I might have a look at this Thunderbird.
