Three Alternatives To Mozilla Thunderbird
Posted 09 July 2012 - 03:52 PM
If there aren't going to be any more upgrades, that's fine. That means the third party programs I have for the old version of Thunderbird I use now can be updated once (at a cost each time had I updated T-Bird) and I can go with the newest version without worrying about having to pay again when T-bird upgrades without my wanting it to.
Vulnerabilities in e-mail clients can be fixed with add-ons or even a regular antivirus program, so I don't see this as a bad thing. If you want stability in the way you use programs and in your programs, this is a plus for a lot of people. For the snobbish elite who hunger for new, new, new all the time, well, guess they're out of luck. Unless there's something inherently bad in the last release of T-bird that makes it a deal breaker, I'll keep recommending it to my clients - almost all of whom hate change.

I am satisfied with its current features and don't need further improvement to it, but OS changes can be a killer.

It's not really that stupid. Firefox continues to evolve and requires constant attention but Thunderbird's future innovation is limited although it will continue to be fit for purpose. Try the other browsers if you want but most independent users think Firefox is the tops.
