Been using Tbird for donkeys years, wholly concur about v78, sticking with v68 at least for now. Just wish a few annoying little bugs could be squashed. Particularly the one where it apparently ignores, or fails to recognise UTF-8 definitions in emails. Just discovered that each folder has individual properties, where you can set the fallback encoding for messages in that folder. Not found any way to globally set all folders, going to be a pain going through my 100+ collection...

To the reviewer complaining about Tbird version 68.10 being "10 versions behind" -- it is understandable to think that, given the way Mozilla has been behaving, but in fact there has only been one official Tbird release since 68.10 and it is called 78.7 -- just recently released and, yes, making it look like there have been 10 versions since 68.10. That's an old Microsoft trick. The 78.7 version is available here as a Flatpack -- but BE AWARE: Mozilla has made *major* changes to Tbird with ver. 78.7 and I do not like a lot of them. Particularly them messing up the way Profiles work. So you might want to check out ver 78.7 in a separate machine and see if you like it. Besides the screw-up with Profiles, try writing a message with version 78.7 and after the "auto-save to draft" timer kicks in, see if you enjoy having a bright, flashing blue light streaking constantly back and forth across the screen while you're trying to concentrate on writing something. Irritating, distracting and a classic example of unecessary animation where it is definitely not needed or wanted. And no, I couldn't figure out how to turn it off. I'm sticking with ver. 68.01 for now. I've tried a lot of email apps but have been using Tbird productively for 15 years with no problems. It's been one of the very best and it is cross-platform with Linux-Mac-Windows(gag). Or, at least it was -- until they messed with the Profiles. I've always been happy to update to the lastest release of Thunderbird -- until I tried the new conceptual disaster of version 78.7. Mozillia appears to be trying to turn Thunderbird into Firefox and does not seem to care what they break while they do it. I may have to look at another option and find a way to covert my 15 years of Tbird email archive files into it. Oh, joy.

This version is 10 major releases old - Package maintainers - Pull your socks up, please??? How can I get support for it if it's already been superceeded by 10 NEW VERSIONS?!?!?!? UNFIXED BUGS, SO I AM UNINSTALLING AND NOT USING THIS ANCIENT PACKAGE ANY MORE.

The only app that really installs and works easily with a very old hotmail account. Much as I want to try something else I keep ending up back with TB. The only thing really lacking is an easy way to import and sync the Outlook live address book.

The application is excellent. I use the email, contacts, calendar, task and enigmail functions. The app has extensive add-ons to help you personalize the application to make it more relevant to how you want to use it. It is also great that it is cross platform so you can recommend it to those who may not use Linux.

Thunderbird is great, it could be better with some extra feauters such as export in pst archives and google calendar full compatibility. When add the newer version in software manager ?

I have used Thinderbird for a very long time but decided to uninstall it today. In general I find it just fine. But I don't think the interface is very user-friendly and on top of that, what drove me away for good are the bugs. I get a lot of "An error occured" popups, but I also lost half my inbox today because something went wrong with setting up filters. I lost some very important email in fact so I am kinda dissapointed about that.

In combination with Enigmail extension my favorite email program. Simple setup for various email providers. Mail server settings were found automatically.

Running in Linux Mint 19.3. Using it with a gmail account, and so far so good. New to linux, but if all apps work this well I'll be very happy!

Ergonomy is not only functions. It's also design. I think Thunderbird deserve a much modern design. Address book and conversation mode should be integrated.

Should not be pre-installed on Mint under any circumstances. Why is this still packaged with so many OS?

Отличный почтовик, но с сегодняшнего дня не могу подключиться к почтовым ящикам Гугла. Обычный пароль не подходит, набирал и вручную и копипастом. Пароль для приложений также не подходит. Может кто знает что делать? Не хочется менять почтовик. Привык уже к нему... /UP/ Оказывается что в Пакетах лежит Thunderbird 60, вот с ней проблемы. С новой версией 68 всё работает

Still by far the most powerful mail client available. As far as v68 not being available yet in Mint I don't mind that, v68 kills 90% of the add-ons and until the extension developers catch up and update their code to work with it I am happier on this version.

Good client however perpetual problems signing in to Gmail using generated app-specific password. Manual configuration did not help. Not able to find any help material online. Deleted Tbird and installed another client (Geary) which worked flawlessly.
