Thunderbird - more secure than OE?

  sjbell 11:30 01 Jan 2005

I know Firefox is more secure than Internet Explorer, I was wondering if Thunderbird is considered more secure than Outlook Express? I have tried TB but can’t seem to get to grips with it. I do have OE set up to send and read all messages in plain text to increase security. Any comments would be appreciated. Happy New Year!

In a simple word. Yes.

There is more than sufficient guidance in Mozilla's FAQ section on both Firefox and Thunderbird to help you configure both; the links should be provided automatically in your bookmarks.

Since installing TB and Firefox several weeks ago Ad-aware SE Personal, Search and Destroy and SpywareBlaster have become virtually redundant.

Get Firefox and have a Happy New Year!

Thanks both. I am already running Firefox, perhaps I will give Thunderbird another go.

Just go into the Menu and set up your accounts, Prefs are under Edit

sjbell already has Firefox - the question relates to Thunderbird...:-)

Your OE accounts are automatically imported into Thunderbird when you install it if you wish or you can do it afterwards via Tools>Import; you can import the Address Book, Mail etc in one go or individually as you require.
