An introduction to Thunderbird, part 1

Published Thursday 06 October 2005

Microsoft Outlook Express has for a number of years been the leading application for sending and receiving e-mails. This is not only due to a good functionality, but also due to the monopolization from Microsoft, and the lack of competitive programs.

Thunderbird is one of those programs which can compete with MS Outlook Express, not only because it has similar functionality, but it's also user friendly, and it's freeware.

Thunderbird, and other Open Source programs, are products developed by a community of developers. As everything else, this community ain't flawless. IMHO it seems they use too much energy and time developing programs, and fighting the everlasting battle against monopoly. I'm sure I'm not the first one to think about this, but what if the community had spent more time enlightening the masses? I don't see myself as a guru when it comes to handling programs, yet Thunderbird is quite easy to use.

People's fear of the new and unknown might be a missed issue, which needs to be put on the agenda. Throughout this article, I will try to help you understand Thunderbird, as the excellent, free program it is.

Why Thunderbird?

  • It's user friendly, easy to install, easy to use.
  • It's freeware, meaning, you can download it from the web, no charge.
  • Cross platform, you can use it with Windows as well as the GNU/Linux operating system.

These reasons alone should make you consider using this program.
