Mozilla Thunderbird Email Converter

About Mozilla Thunderbird:

Mozilla Thunderbird is an open source and absolutely free of cost cross platform email, chat (Twitter, XMPP, IRC), news client, feed reader and was initially established by Mozilla Messaging in 2004 but today is properly known as Mozilla Foundation. Interestingly it has been developed for all OS like Windows, OS X, Linux.

Supports multiple identities within accounts. Features like Junk filtering, Extension, themes, Standard support are being updated by the team day by day. But Still there are some limitations of the Mozilla Thunderbird email client.

Mozilla Thunderbird Limitations

First of all, the most disappointed thing about the Thunderbird is that its GUI is as similar as its browser but it's not so good and user friendly as it could be.

Mozilla Thunderbird supports to configure account easily but when it comes about POP3 email storage or any offline email storage supports on local folder mode is 4GB only and if it exceeds then it can behave unexpectedly or your data can get corrupted. It can slow down the application too. Also in some cases issue related to overly-long filenames can also be experienced. For number of features which are provided by other email client easily here you find it difficult. You need to add extensions or add-ons like for calendar option and features you need to have a third-party tool.

Mozilla Thunderbird has color-tag but they are not shown at the left side navigation pane globally, during search and in quick filter option tag will help at that time only.

You have to search for every feature, which is really difficult task to do, users obviously want to have such kind of GUI that can make their task easier, no one will want to go for such kind of confusing application. No doubt Mozilla Thunderbird email client is better in its own ways. But these reasons can make you to switch from Mozilla Thunderbird app for more professionalism or for more user friendly email client. Spam handling is also poor. Also, attachments loading is not that up to mark, it shows attachments to be empty even if it was send with attachments.

If you want mails of Mozilla Thunderbird convert to any other format then you will have to use third party tool like Mozilla Thunderbird Mail Converter.
