Thanks in advance

    Yep.
    I've been using it for years. I manage 4 different accounts with it including one gmail account, and its internal spam filter and its e-mail filters you can set (to sort your e-mails and put them in different folders automatically depending on conditions you set, like the origin or the subject) are very handy.

    I don't see the problem.
    I've got my e-mails on my desktop and my laptop at the same time... They're stored on the server and the versions on my machines are only copies. So I've got my received e-mails wherever I go. If I needed to have them all (i.e. the sent e-mails too) on multiple machines I'd use an IMAP server (my server supports both POP/SMTP and IMAP), with this protocol everything is stored on the server.

    Now if you're talking about retrieving your e-mails from public machines using a webmail... You're playing with fire. You don't know what may or may not have been installed on those machines, it's probably the best way to have your passwords stolen.

    Seb.

    I use both Thunderbird and Outlook, for different reasons. Thunderbird is great because you can set up different accounts and manage them each separately, wheres with Outlook, everything comes into one massive inbox.

    Thunderbird is great becuase their set-up process is automatic, vs. manual with Outlook. However, I've found it difficult to set up a signature with any HTML in it. Doesn't format correctly.

    One weird little bug that has cropped up with Thunderbird lately is that when I hit "reply", sometimes it copies another email below...not the one I just clicked on. Just have to watch for that.

    But I still recommend it.

    Hope this helps!

    I use Thunderbird to manage 14 email accounts. It works great; however, I'd love to find a good web-based solution so I could access all those emails from anywhere. I really love gmail and would happily use it if they allowed you to manage more than 5 email addresses.

    Another happy user here. Have used it for years, currently manage about 6 email accounts through it, and have no complaints to speak of except for the very occasional hiccup with "profiles" becoming corrupt - usually just when I haven't properly shut down my computer, but is easily fixed. Outlook is possibly better/stabler (I assume; haven't used it for years, now), but as far as free solutions go, you'll be hard pressed to do better than Thunderbird.

    Yeah its good love thunderbird, prefer it to outlook greatly. I manage an array of email accounts, about 12 currently. Thunderbird lets me do it all easily, conveniently and in a lovely manner.

    I use it along with other clients. I love it. It has a lot of really nice features including:

    - It's free which is always a great feature in MHO
    - It's by Mozilla who makes Firefox & I love Firefox
    - It has very good spam filters
    - Easy to use
    - You can set up filters to color code lines, apply tags or similar.
    - It has an unlimited hierarchy of folders
    - Contains unlimited email accounts (I have 8)
    - You set up as many folders as you want

    What have I missed? It pretty much does everything you'd want a mail client to do. It rocks.

    Thunderbird is available for other platforms besides windows. I know of at least one medium scale email spammer who used it to manage his many short term accounts.

      Very interesting Webapex. I would never have considered this as a viable option for an email spammer to use but now that you mention it I could see where it would work.

    I use it for a number of email accounts. I think it's just as good as Outlook so why pay for a program when you can get one just as good for free.

    I am not a huge fan of it. I had a LOT of hassle getting some of my email accounts on it for seemingly no reason, therefore I gave it a skip and just stuck with plain old Windows Live Mail which does the job I want fairly well.

    I started using TB when I got Windows 7 and it's been great. It seems to me the search function is far superior to Outlook Express, as I'm always able to find what I'm looking for. Definitely recommend it. Works great for Mac, too.
