    The last few months I read reports that development of Thunderbird had stopped, but after doing a little research it seems like there is an attempt to create a future for this product.

    Although I use Microsoft Outlook, I tested Thunderbird last year and thought it was a good product. So, for those looking for an alternative to Outlook, Thunderbird may be worth considering in light of its possible future.

      For those looking for an alternative to Thunderbird, there’s Fossamail.

      FossaMail is an Open Source, Mozilla Thunderbird-based mail, news and chat client for Windows and Linux, brought to you by the Pale Moon developers (and therefore not affiliated with the Mozilla Corporation). It is an alternative version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail&news client, and based on the Pale Moon browser core.

      I went with Thunderbird years ago as a replacement for Eudora (which is wish was still around). I’ve considered having a go at SeaMonkey which has retained a much simpler interface for it’s components.

        I like the included E-Mail Client of SeaMonkey on both Windows and Mac OS X. I also have set up OE Classic for a few of my older clients.

        Before you wonder "Am I doing things right," ask "Am I doing the right things?"

      Even if development has stopped the base app still provides mail and calendar. As long as there are no big security holes you’ll be fine.

      cheers, Paul
