"Thunderbird an application to manage multiple emails."

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is a very complete application that allows you to manage the email of multiple accounts in a simple way and that in most cases does not require configuration by the user because the application itself automatically detects by entering the email electronic and our password.

The application is really complete and allows you to configure almost anything from our mail as automatic responses through a bot configured on our computer, alias management or the possibility of creating backup copies locally on our computer, this is very useful if we do not have with stable internet connection throughout the day.

Another feature of the application is that it allows to modify its visual aspect by using skins that change color and images its interface, the installation of the skins is very simple since there is a marketplace where to find them.

What do you dislike?

What I did not like about the application is that its interface is not very successful as far as icons are concerned since they look very outdated and the modification is not allowed by the skins so there is no possible way to change them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Thunderbird is an application that I would recommend to anyone regardless of whether it has one or several emails (although it has many is more useful) because it is really useful especially in work environments because of its ability to create local backups that can be viewed in case of losing the connection to the internet.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since we use Thunderbird at work I have personally seen how I have more time to devote to other tasks because thanks to this application I save a lot of time visiting email management websites, which increases exponentially if we have emails in different domains.

However in windows it is lent because the tool runs lightly

What do you dislike?

A veces puedes tener problemas configurando las cuentas de correo de dominios privados, que no son las típicas de Gmal, Yahoo, Hotmail... etc. y no hay un soporte técnico al que puedas acudir para recibir ayuda, aunque sí que es sencillo dar con foros donde comentar tu problema o descargar manuales y tutoriales de la red.

A veces te pierdes en la interfaz, por ejemplo yo tube problemas para encontrar la opción de eliminar una cuenta de Thunderbird.

A veces hay bloqueos en el programa y debe ser reiniciado. Si no te das cuenta puedes dejar de recibir avisos en tiempo real.

"The post distributor in a single terminal."

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is a more scalable open source tool for electronic mail terminals. In the same has the functionality of configuring trays of different electronic mails. However, corporate decisions only keep a single email with the company. Additional that you can even save those emails from the tray to which you can see them after not being online. It is a complete and integral terminal. For our performance it is the only lighter fact tool that exists. For this reason it is the default.

What do you dislike?

The only error is the synchronization time, it is not instantaneous like another email viewer. Additional features depends on the add-ons of the platform due to its free code coding. However, thunderbird behaves efficiently

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend the tool for all users who want to save their mail trays. Being able to administer the tool in one place. Additionally, if you want to generalize an electronic mail is the necessary tool

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The tool has brought benefits such as the users of the company, has been able to save their emails in case of any failure of lost emails, as an offline file. Additional that the terminal looks great in the equipment of the company. Thanks to her, the administration has been more efficient for all the technical personnel that carry out the internal support of the tool

"the most comprehensive post office"

What do you like best?

in the search for a post terminal, which meets the need to be executed on low-resource computers. It was planned to install Thunderbird on the computers of the company's administration. The tool is a fairly compact terminal and designed under the design of free software, as it comes in most of the distribution of linux, in windows it ends up being a terminal or manager of SMTP emails that allows to have contact with the gmail chat, if is the case or another electronic mail platform.

What do you dislike?

The only defect of the tool that I believe is that the finishing of colors is very bad. It does not have that hue of bright colors. Additionally, they do not have many complements, such as a calendar of event verifications. From the rest the tool fulfills its main functions

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The tool is recommended for all users who want to use it as a method to organize all outgoing and incoming mail. Additionally, it is a fact of taking into account as a user decree under a mail organizer as thunderbird and a daily work administration or each personal response management

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has brought many benefits such as the installation in equipment of little capacity or high recourses. The tool adapts quickly to solve cases of users who wish to see in a structured way the electronic mails. Additionally, the tool as a post office manager for administrative personnel is easier to manage

"Thunderbird - All email account in one place "

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is a great program that allows me to support my mailboxes. The main advantage of ThunderBird is the fact that the program supports an unlimited number of email accounts, so we can add email accounts as much as we want. Another advantage is the ability to back up our emails so that we can browse them offline in case there is no Internet access. It is worth mentioning the fact that ThunderBird is an open source solution, making it available for free to everyone. ThunderBird is an easy to configure solution, which can be expanded with plugins.

What do you dislike?

One of the drawbacks that I noticed is the fact that synchronization with the e-mail account takes too long and that the program lacks some functions that can only be extended with plug-ins.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a program that allows you to use multiple email accounts in one place, then you should consider trying ThunderBird now.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Thunderbird saves me a lot of time to check individual email accounts.

"Manage all your emails with Thunderbird"

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is an application with a very simple objective that is to be able to handle email accounts in a massive way, which is especially useful for people who have different emails for each activity such as personal, work, family emails ...

The best thing about Thunderbird is that by accessing your application we can synchronize our email trays so that when we receive an email it arrives directly to our computer, stored locally. Because Thunderbird shares the application management engine with Mozilla Firefox, it is possible to browse the internet and even install visual themes that we can also find available for Firefox.

What do you dislike?

The application can be a little slow when you have emails from the same server, for example outlook, when we have 5 to 10 emails from this domain, the inbox check is very slow and sometimes it is possible that we are required for 2FA confirmations or by mail electronic as security measures, which is very annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this service especially for people who need to keep local copies of their emails to be able to view them even when they do not have access to the internet, this is very useful to export emails to other computers. Also, if we have several emails, we avoid having to access by inserting credentials every day for each email.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a user of this application it has been very useful because I can check all my emails in a very fast way, just by opening Thunderbird I receive notifications from all my emails regardless of the domain to which it belongs. The application is especially useful since it is not longer needed to access the domain website for login so i dont have to waste time by inserting mail and password for every mail.

"Opensource Mail client"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Thunderbird is that it is a software created by the Mozilla foundation, this means that you know with certainty that the software does not have any kind of trap to steal information from your emails since Mozilla does all its Open source projects.

The application supports the most important domains and you can add as many emails as you need, the auto assistant configures most of the domains without almost user intervention, it is only necessary to add the email and password.

It is also possible to modify the internal options of the mail client as the visual theme that it has by default since it supports the themes of the browser Firefox (also created by Mozilla), these themes or also called "people" modify the color and image of the header of the application.

What do you dislike?

- A negative aspect of the application is that, as is otherwise normal, the synchronization becomes somewhat slower the greater the number of emails to synchronize in your application.

- The application does not support language change without having to resort to reinstalling it using Thunderbird with the language package we need, it would be useful if the application incorporated all the languages and could be changed through options.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Thunderbird is an Open source application and 100% free, I recommend it because using this tool you can be sure that your emails will not be spied on. You can add hundreds of emails from any domain that will be detected automatically by the configuration wizard.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Thunderbird saves a lot of time because with a single click of mouse we can access any email that we have added to the application, it is also possible to access local emails already deleted so it adds extra security to have backups available on our computer. In summary, the main benefit of using Thunderbird is to have all my emails organized in a quick and easy way.

"It is our corporate email service"

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is the messaging service implemented corporately by the company where I work. I use it daily to review, send and organize emails quickly and very easily. Given the large number of existing workers I usually use the address book in which they are registered at the time of writing emails. To maintain an order in the information sent and received every day, I take advantage of storing and discriminating the emails in subdirectories located within the folder called "Local folders", which allows me to more efficiently locate a specific email when it is required and thanks to the search engine enabled in the application.

What do you dislike?

One of the things I do not like about this tool is that the text editor is not very easy to handle when writing reports with pictures or images extracted from other digital documents where the same separation between lines, size and type of letters and design of the pictures, as it is done in editors such as Word for example. It has happened to me that I want to write a title with typeface and text with another type, and the text editor makes its own discrimination. This was easier when I did it in Outlook. Another option that is not viable is that you cannot attach emails directly from the folders but you must save the hard disk as a file and then attach them to the mail.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you prefer softwares and implementations under the Free Software model, this is an option that you can put into practice.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In general, it is an electronic messaging service with functional options that allow company employees to maintain communication via email, including reports, diagnostics, reviews, reports and status on the operation of the company in its different operational areas. Personally, it has allowed me to execute my daily work that is supported daily via emails. However, I prefer to work with Outlook, for its kindness when it comes to making emails as reports without altering their images and Excel tables.

"Thunderbird, Free email client"

What do you like best?

I love using Thunderbird because it greatly relieves my workload and staff to manage all my personal and work emails at once, in my Personal Thunderbird I have more than 4 emails that I use at the same time and in my company some more.

The best thing about Thunderbird for me is the possibility of adding the emails to the application in a quick and simple way in which you only have to enter the email and password and then the application automatically configures the local mail service.

Other interesting features of Thunderbird is the possibility of locally storing emails to be able to consult them without connection, this is really useful if your domain limits the mail tray to a certain number of emails.

What do you dislike?

It is very difficult to find negative aspects in such a simple application and that the only thing it does is to manage emails but unfortunately I have found one that is very annoying:

When you add several different emails from the same domain it is very possible that the application tries to update everything at once saturating the domain with repeated requests so we will end up being limited and we will have to log in through the browser to verify the email account through SMS or alternative mail, this has happened to me with outlook.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using the application if you are a user or professional who loses a lot of time daily in checking their emails on different websites. Using Thunderbird you can consult everything in minutes and without licensing fees.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thunderbird is very useful to manage different email accounts in a fast and uncomplicated way since it frees us from the problem of having to access each web site to log in to our email specifically.

"Great mail client "

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is compatible with all existing e-mail domains, and the application is very simple since we only have to insert our e-mail and password to automatically configure our inbox, although it is possible to find some that do not they are detected automatically so it is necessary to enter the configuration parameters manually to make it work.

It supports the possibility of storing your emails locally so that even in case of connection loss we can review the received emails. It also includes basic features like deleted from remote or local emails, marked as unread, spam etc ...

And very important by default disables images and potentially malicious content for our machine so we can check our mail without fear of getting infected by viruses.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that the mobile application is not synchronized with the desktop application, nor the reverse. So when you delete an email from one of the two clients this is not updated immediately at the other end.

I would also like the possibility of being able to use security methods like 2FA to access the emails since some of my accounts contain sensitive information such as bank details.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Thunderbird is a recommended application for all those people who handle more than one email in their work or personal life since using Thunderbird saves a lot of time, in addition the application is free as it is evident when created by the mozilla foundation.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems that are solved are that we can access all our emails in real time without losing time using the web browser to enter each of the emails, thus losing work time.

"Control all your emails with thunderbird"

What do you like best?

I am using Thunderbird because due to my work I currently have to manage almost 12 different emails and Thunderbird has worked perfectly with all the domains without any type of problem or error.

The application has a lot of advanced configuration options but if you do not need to configure the emails manually, you do not have to waste time with it, and the best thing about Thunderbird is that, at least in my case, all the domains are auto-detected. correctly and I just had to put the email and the password!

Incredible now I can manage all email accounts at once and without wasting time opening and closing sessions with several different accounts.

Other things that I liked about thunderbird:

- You can configure it to manage the mail locally so if you lose the connection you can continue reading emails

- You can also write emails without connection and send them, when the connection returns they will be sent automatically.

- The application is open source and free, offered by the Mozilla foundation (the same created from firefox)

- I work in Windows and MAC although it is also available for Linux users

- Thunderbird is very stable I have not had lag or crash problems in the application

What do you dislike?

What I did not like about Thunderbird is that if you add several accounts from the same domain (outlook for example) when making simultaneous connections to check the mail, Microsoft Outlook activates the security of the account and blocks the login until you enter from the web and deactivate it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using Thunderbird if you have many emails to manage either personal or professional and do not want to waste time opening and closing sessions on the Internet. Also Thunderbird is open source and free.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the company I have to manage more than 12 emails and I was losing a lot of time trying to review them all one by one, opening and closing sessions. Now thanks to Thunderbird I just lose 10 minutes of my time and I can do it in real time.

"Best email client for Desktop"

What do you like best?

At work and at home I have been using Thunderbird for some time, thanks to Thunderbird I can manage my company and personal mail at the same time without having to enter the respective websites of each service.

The best of Thunderbird for me would be:

- Multi platform application that allows to run on Mac, Windows or Linux

- Many years of development that make Thunderbird a completely stable application

- Simple interface

- Requires little hard disk installation space

- Low CPU and RAM consumption

What do you dislike?

There's nothing wrong with Thunderbird, it's a mail application and it works perfectly, I have not seen any bug so far. I would say that they could improve their interface or make them support plugins or themes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If in your work (or at home) you handle a lot of emails I recommend that you use Thunderbird because you will gain a lot of time to spend on other things. Before I had to consult 6 email accounts one by one and I lost almost 30 minutes a day, now in 5 minutes I can check all my mail! And the best part is that you do not have to pay anything for the license because it's free

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems that Thunderbird solves at work (also at home) is that it allows me to be more efficient and occupy time in other more important tasks. Another benefit is that Thunderbird is Open source and free.

"Maybe the best client for your business and personal mails"

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is a tool we have been using in our business (and I personally also in others) for some time because Thunderbird allows you to manage dozens of company emails, personal or of any kind without problem.

Technically the application is very stable although it is normal because Thunderbird has many years of development so it could be said that it is practically a finished product, although it is still being updated and adding new functionalities.

The requirements of Thunderbird are really low or nonexistent, opening the application will not involve any work for your computer.

Another Thunderbird thing that I like is your work team belongs to the Mozilla foundation that works for open source software. It is also multi platform supporting all the most used operating systems currently on the market such as Windows, Mac or Linux.

What do you dislike?

Sincerely the application does not have any serious flaws, as I said it has many years of development and is free of important bugs.

If I have to say something that I would like you to implement is some way of applying themes to change the aspect of the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend you use Thunderbird if you are looking for a way to access all your emails without wasting time checking one by one in their respective web platform.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my work as a support I receive dozens of emails of different types every day, clients, work companions, bosses etc .. having different emails if I had to check all one by one I would lose a lot of time that I do not have, thanks to Thunderbird I can always know if a new email has arrived without worrying about what account it belongs to because it manages all the accounts as if they were one.

"Amazing email client"

What do you like best?

For me the best thing about thunderbird is the possibility of managing all your email accounts at the same time, for example I have two business emails, two personal emails, and three for other purposes. I can receive several emails at a time in different accounts without problem, to do it through the browser should have several tabs open and even close and open sessions several times to check all my emails.

The best of thunderbird:

- Multi platform (Linux, Windows and Mac available)

- Open source and free

- The Mozilla foundation and its philosophy always in favor of open source software and the comfort of knowing that you are not being spied

- Supports almost all existing email services by default, if it does not work you can always choose the manual settings.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that some services limit the number of requests for the same email domain, if for example you have two outlook emails you will not be able to consult them at the same time as Microsoft limits a connection every several minutes. Obviously this is not a problem of thunderbird but I wonder if it is possible to solve it via software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

After trying several mail clients I must say that Thunderbird is totally superior to the rest in all aspects, especially in the most important is the price.

Definitely I recommend Thunderbird if you need to manage several emails and you are looking for a free solution that works reliably.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We work in a large department and manage several email accounts both company and personal and we need to be aware of the latest news that come through the mail, thanks to Thunderbird we can manage all our mail and free of charge.

"The best alternative to Outlook for a desktop mail client. "

What do you like best?

Web mail clients, such as GMail are adequate if you're managing one inbox but if you need to monitor a number of email addresses all day, every day and without cluttering up your web browser with lots of open tabs then a desktop client is what you need. Free and open source, Thunderbird fills the gap that many Outlook Express and Windows Mail users have without the need to turn to bloated Outlook.

Also development of this software is pretty much frozen, except for the occasional update. The developers aren't messing with it for the sake of it, bloat isn't being added, much loved features aren't being taken away. The Thunderbird you use today is the one you'll be using in a few months and that's great because, seriously, how many more features does an email client need!

What do you dislike?

The add-ons and themes directory could do with clearing out - there are too many extensions that are incompatible with the latest version.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There's an extension that will let Thunderbird's calendar sync with G Suite! It's brilliant!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thunderbird, as desktop client, makes it far easier to manage and access multiple mailboxes than webmail. If you have to look at 2 or more mailboxes all day, this is the way forward.

"The best free (as in freedom and beer) email client"

What do you like best?

There are four great things about Thunderbrid:

1) It's very easy to setup new accounts. If you use a well known email provider, like Gmail, Microsoft or Yahoo!, Thunderbird is able to automatically set up everything for you. All you need to do is click on the authorize button it shows you to enable Thunderbird to login to your account. Setting up an account on a private e-mail server is also very easy to do.

2) It's very easy to make backups: just copy your profile folder anywhere and you're good to go. This also makes it very easy to migrate your Thunderbird data to another machine.

3) It has a full-featured search function: You can search by keyword or phrase or by regular expressions, and you can limit your search to certain accounts, or search by participant in any conversation, among many other things.

4) It protects your privacy: media files in your mail are not downloaded and shown by default so you cannot be tracked when checking your email. This can be disabled on a per-mail, per-account or per-profile basis if you want to, however.

What do you dislike?

Two things:

1) It can consume a considerable amount of hard drive space (my Thunderbird profile is about 10 GB after 4 years of use) since it downloads and caches any mail that you open. If you just check the headlines then it doesn't download anything, however.

2) There is no minimize-to-tray function. This was easy to fix in previous versions of Thunderbird with an extension (Thunderbird extensions are just like Firefox browser extensions), but the latest versions (from 2018 onwards) do not support any minimize-to-tray extension.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just like it's sibling Firefox, Thunderbird requires a moderately modern machine to work. Other than that, it's both free, full-featured and easy to set-up so trying it out should not be any problem at all.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Thunderbird to handle all my email accounts, including my personal account Gmail account and several work related Gmail and institutional accounts. Thunderbird is compatible with SMTP, IMAP and POP3 e-mail servers so it works with any provider, like Google, Microsoft or even your own servers

"very good efficient and fast email software"

What do you like best?

The Mail Account Configuration Wizard

Before this functionality, you had to know your IMAP, SMTP and SSL / TLS configurations. Now all you need to do is write your name, email address and password, and the assistant will automatically search our database and find the right configuration for each person

What do you dislike?

There are several things that I do not like at all about the Thunderbird, but basically all are reduced to one in my opinion you have to look for life locating and installing add-ons that enable us functionalities or something similar.

The idea of ​​these plugins, in principle, is not so bad either. It allows the programs to grow through ideas provided by external developers to the original application, either because the official developers did not think about them or did not consider them enough to incorporate them, but for other people they are important.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To manually set up an email account, you should know the following information, which is usually provided by your email provider

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is an open source, it has been working for many years and being a very popular mail client, with add-ons for personalization

It is free, operates on multiple platforms and has various customization options and I am working on business in the company on solids control in oil fields.

"Thunderbird is great for multiple accounts"

What do you like best?

I have been using Thunderbird for years. As a freelancer, I have personal accounts, business accounts, and client accounts. I currently have 11 email accounts to keep track of daily. I love that you can color code accounts, use colored tags for important emails, to-dos, etc. They are also color-coded and user-defined. I can create HTML signatures, have chat accounts including Twitter, RSS Feeds etc., and choose from dozens of useful add-ons. There is also a calendar add-on, which is currently not working. There is also a unified inbox, while not practical for my use, but could be to others.

What do you dislike?

Thunderbird was not maintained for several years but has recently been given a much-needed update. Unfortunately, many of my add-ons are not currently working. Hopefully, the creators of these add-on extensions will update their products so they can be used with the newer software. Once the add-ons and extensions have been upgraded and I can use my calendar again, it will be perfect!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Thunderbird has been and continues to be a great application for email. Along with the integrated feature and add-ons and extensions available, it is the only email that works for my multiple email accounts.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to have all of my email accounts in one application! I can easily see what account has new mail without having to open a separate app or view.

"good free email program"

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is a good program that manages different email clients, both business and personal. It is capable of managing multiple mail accounts without any problem. It divides them into tabs and when clicking, it expands the inbox and all the other folders in the mail.

It syncs very quickly and emails are received in real time.

Every time you receive an email, a popup appears and it sounds. It is very useful if you are waiting for mail or if you are away from the computer so you can hear it immediately.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the lack of updates that this program has. There are many things that can be improved, especially the slowness of the program if there are many emails in the inbox. They must be sorted or erased so that it works smoothly.

I do not like the mail display to be below, and there is no tab or popup to read the mail.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend to everyone that you need a free program to control, read and respond to electronic mail. To be free, it is one of the best ones on the market.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly, in my company we use it as the main program to read and send electronic mail. It is a great program that for now serves us quite well.

"Email made easier"

What do you like best?

I mainly installed the thunderbird because it incorporated an agenda within the email client. I usually receive emails with customer appointments and I'm very good at pointing directly to the agenda.

When viewing the calendar next to you, you have a much clearer view of free days and busy days.

I love being able to incorporate different emails from different websites to work.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how difficult it is to change email. If you want to delete an account it is very difficult. It has so many options and tabs that it is not at first sight.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend to everyone that you need a program to manage email and that it is easy to install, easy and very easy to use. It really is fantastic.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my company, we use this program as the main client to receive emails. All the employees use this client and they are all very happy because it is very easy to use and quite intuitive.

"One of the best free software to manage emails"

What do you like best?

- We use this software at work to have all the emails of the employees in the same computer, so that we never lose time in answering the clients effectively.

- It is free and has many features and add-ons.

- almost everyone in our company knows how to use it. It has a very intuitive interface, and for a typical use (write, answer, delete emails) is perfect.

- It has a fairly large community because the program is open source.

What do you dislike?

- Sometimes the program stops suddenly and crashes.

- When you have to dump a lot of information in the emails (copy, delete multiple files or upload them) sometimes it goes very slow.

- Programmers tend to update their interfaces to make them more accessible and modern, but it seems that thunderbird programmers do not update the software as they should.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy, free email manager with lots of possibilities. For a company it is perfect to manage all the accounts of employees

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- It allows us to keep order with emails to always follow guidelines and never waste time and get along with customers

"Free email client"

What do you like best?

This program offers the multiple management of different electronic mail accounts and for free.

I like the option you have to preview the mail without having to open it completely.

You can also see the subject of the mail clearly without being cut. The images of the mail are seen correctly not like Gmail that often removes them.

You can receive the electronic mail in real time without having to update the inbox.

What do you dislike?

In order to use the calendar and the tasks you need to install an extension. I think the program should provide these tools within the same program without having to install any other extension.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I just recommend this program to anyone looking for alternatives to the typical mail client. This will please you, it's free and very easy to set up. Try it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this program to manage email but also as an agenda and as a management of tasks since it has the extension that offers these extra features. You have all the needs in one program.

My company manages different emails and the program allows us to manage it much more quickly.

"Un buen gestor de correo electrónico"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor para mi es el poder tener múltiples cuentas de correo electrónico en un solo programa. Es muy útil si tienes una empresa con muchas cuentas o simplemente quieres tener todas tus cuentas personales en un solo sitio. Es gratuito y una buena alternativa a Outlook.

Puedes gestionar tus cuentas de correo con etiquetas, colores, carpetas, etc. para poder tener mejor organizado tu correo, así como escoger qué tipo de avisos y alertas quieres recibir.

Además, con la aplicación móvil tengo la posibilidad de recibir dónde y cuando necesito, todos los correos que me mandan.

What do you dislike?

Si gestionas muchas cuentas con muchos correos tiende a ir lento. El diseño del programa podría ser más moderno.

Da la sensación de que Gmail o Outlook está más extendidos que Thunderbird.

La aplicación para teléfono móvil (android en mi caso) podría ir más fluida y ser un poco más sencilla de utilizar.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomendado si tienes que gestionar muchas cuentas de correo, y quieres tenerlas en la misma bandeja del programa.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tengo una empresa con muchas cuentas de correo electrónico, y este programa me facilita mucho poder tener en una misma ventana todas las cuentas, ahorrándome mucho tiempo.

"Free alternative to manage your email"

What do you like best?

It is a great program to manage both personal and work email. It has a very simple and simple interface to use.

What I liked most is to be able to add multiple emails and that you do not have to configure it, just add the email and the password and the program does everything for you.

It allows you to manage mail in folders and tags with the name you want, without any of its defaults.

What do you dislike?

The interface of the program is a bit old-fashioned. It would be nicer if you were upgraded a bit.

To clear an account is very difficult and you have to look very well to find it. They could change this feature a bit and make it easier for users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it to all those who need to administer their email and they need a free alternative that works well. I recommend it to all those who need to administer their email and they need a free alternative that works well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to manage the company mail. Being a free program is an alternative to take into account because the outlook is expensive and not so efficient.

"Good to manage emails"

What do you like best?

Thunderbird is a good email manager, it is easy to configure and very efficient. It does not consume many system resources and that is important when you work with many programs at the same time. It alerts you instantly when you have an email. It's great.

It allows to classify the email by folders and labels and you can add more accounts if you want.

Its interface is quite intuitive and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about this program is that it costs a lot to change the configuration parameters or delete the account. It is a bit farfetched.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a free option you have to keep in mind as an alternative of Outlook. It is great for small and large companies because it offers a variety of possibilities. You can add as many email accounts as you need and allow you to compress or expand the account information as needed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to manage the email mainly. It is much easier to use than the one used by many hosting services.

It allows synchronization with your calendar and warns you of the events you have.
