Is Thunderbird free of use?


Yes, it is very much free to use. Unlike other email clients, thunderbird can be used in Linux, Windows, OpenSolaris and Mac. It also has pluginsthat you can use depending of the user you are and what your everyday activities are, for instance, Lightning- a calendar app. It also has optional security option that can make you choose whether  you like to open the images inside a message or not. Another thing that is good in Thunderbird that could not be seen in other email clients is that its search bar can filter keywords which is relevant to what you need and groups them under relevant categories, called the Spotlight feature, which makes the searching process very neat. If you have Gmail, then it can also manage it with its Gmail support that can handle your Gmail special folders.

Thunderbird is a very good email client overall if you are looking for an organizer of multiple accounts of emails and is highly recommended.

Thunderbird is the email application counterpart of Microsoft Office Outlook. It is a free email application developed by Mozilla, the creator of the web browser Mozilla Firefox, that is easy to customize and setup and loaded with great features. If you want to try this email program, you need to check if it supports your operating system.

The latest version Thunderbird 24.0 supports Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. For Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8, Thunderbird supports both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of these operating systems but in case you are running one of these, Thunderbird 32-bit is the only supported build.

For Mac users, it runs on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, and 10.8 Mountain Lion. For Linux users, Thunderbird will not entirely run without the libraries and or packages listed below.
