Outlook Vs Thunderbird

  Curacion66 20:09 13 Feb 2007

I have just left AOL & want to use either Outlook Express, Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. I can't make my mind up. What do other people recommend. Does one have an advantage over the other.

Outlook is more business orientated than OE or Thunderbird.

Both pretty good, but Thunderbird has the option of tweaking it with assorted extensions like the lightening calender, combine that with its integrated spam filter and spellcheck that isn't dependent on Office being installed and it's a bit more versatile.

I changed to T'bird over a year ago and have never once been tempted to go back to to OE. Some of the alternative skins are a nice touch as well.

I have used T'Bird for a couple of years and will never change - it's brill.
