Mac Emulation Reviews 2006

Review: Thunderbird Review

By: dero32

Mozilla Corporation

The Mozilla Corp. has been and still is very popular with there products and programs, for example Sunbird (Calendar) and Firefox (Web Browser) and that leaves us to Thunderbird a great email messages provider which can receive messages from any email service like POP or IMAP.

Popularity and Good Features

Some email users donít really use Thunderbird or Outlook Express, probably because is hard to set up or they just use there internet browser to check there emails. Most people download Thunderbird for skinning or emulating so it can maybe have the perfect Mac OS X Mail interface but even without the skins Thunderbird and Mail are pretty familiar is some stuff. Thunderbird has a great email junk filter that never fails so like Nylock10 said “So you wont wind up with your grandmother’s “Family Photos” email in the junk folder and accidentally delete it!” other good things from Thunderbird is that you dont have to worry about RSS feeds cause you can read them right from Thunderbird. Sometimes accidentally you delete an email from Thunderbird and your like “oh NO!!” but no need to worry my friends cause that email is still saved on the original email site, so you can delete emails from Thunderbird and still have them on ur email provider website. Like i said some people may think is hard to set up but if you think thats true heres a guide for how to set up your Gmail account on Thunderbird:…y?answer=38343 .

Skinning or Emulating

Like I said most people or better said us Desk Modders (Mac Emulators) use Thunderbird for skinning. Thunderbird has a big number of skins just like Firefox. Mozilla has skins for almost every program they make. Here on the Mac Emulation Community we probably just use Thunderbird to have the Mac OS X Mail look and not only that, is pretty comftarble when you just click the Thunderbird icon and you get all your messages without even opening your web browser. If you would like to have the perfect look of Mail for thunderbird you can see this Perfect Guide from Aqua-Soft…underbird+mail .
