Thunderbird

It occurred to me that, in the last post about Firefox extensions, I mentioned the Mozilla email program, Thunderbird briefly. I might have left the impression that I use that program for most of my email needs, but this is far from the case. In fact, I use it, but sparingly. The primary reason has been that I happen to like Outlook, it's calendar features and it's ability to use Word to edit emails (though I use Word's functionality in minute ways). I also am not happy with the way Thunderbird imports address books from Outlook - it seems needlessly complicated to the average user (which, having been on a team that programmed such a thing one time for our intranet site, I can understand the frustrations involved). Finally, there are not as many extensions for the product that would make me want to switch.

However, I am growing to like Thunderbird more and Mozilla is planning on integrating a calendar/scheduling feature into it, which would likely push me over the edge.

So, in short, get Firefox and try it, but you may not yet want Thunderbird.
