Thunderbird as good as Outlook?

Question

Should I switch to Thunderbird? What's the difference? Can I access my work email from Thunderbird?

I own Microsoft Outlook so I've never had the need or desire to install Thunderbird. So with that said, I would say no.

What's the difference? Outlook is not a free tool and it's used mainly in the business setting where it can connect to Microsoft Exchange Server for corporate email. It also has other features like connecting to IMAP and POP servers from companies like GMAIL however overall, it's for the business class.

Thunderbird on the other hand IS free and can be download and install by anyone. Unlike Outlook, it is not designed for the corporate setting but instead for home users who want to use it to connect to IMAP and POP server on the internet.

I completely agree with Alex. One thing I must say about Outlook is that for me it has an easier interface than Thunderbird, but then again, Outlook costs $$$ and Thunderbird is free.

Agreed. Office is not free, Thunderbird is. Normally companies will buy you Outlook for work so it will connect to Exchange however when home, you should be just fine with Thunderbird.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.
