Switched to Thunderbird

Filed under: Web/Tech | No Comments »

A few weeks ago, I posted about some email problems, namely that my client was slowing down. Mailsmith used to keep me happy, but it couldn’t deal with volume–deleting a few thousand spam messages took 5 minutes. 10K and it would freeze. Yesterday I got 600+ spam messages and decided that I was either going to find something new or not do email. I need email to work so I found something new.

I tried Microsoft Entourage, but yea it’s Entourage. Ick.

Thunderbird version .9 has a lot of improvements over some of the older versions I have used. It’s lightning quick which is keeping me happy.

I’m also a FireFox (now 1.0!!!) user, so Thunderbird makes me feel right at home.
