Outlook vs Thunderbird for email
First off, I am back to blogging after a long break!
I have been trying Mozilla Thunderbird for offical email for the past 100 days. My verdict – inadequate.
The search feature in Thumderbird is pretty bad. I was finding it very difficult to extract mails based on anything other than keyword searches in the subject field. That said, these are the features where thunderbird can do with a lot of development:
1) Rich editor. The message compostion features are rather rudimentary
2) Better color schemes: One look at Outlook 2007 and Thundebird and you know the difference!
3) Tighter integration with calendar, reminders etc..
Having said all this, Thunderbird is still a very good open source alternative for an email client.
