I was so impressed with this OpenSource email client that I had to post about it. I’d been having problems with Mozilla Thunderbird for quite some time. Finally, getting frustrated, I uninstalled it and went hunting for a suitable replacement.The installation went without a hitch. It then imported my contacts flawlessly. It uses IMAP and imported even my customized Google Mail subfolders perfectly. I deleted my old ISP email information, which had also been imported. With my Gmail the only account, I set it to check for new messages every minute, and voila! I’m in business 😉
Calendar, Chat, Feeds … this baby’s got them all. I’m sure I haven’t used it long enough to note any bugs, but when an application installs intuitively and then does exactly what I want it to do, the first try, that’s a sell for me personally.
Click on the screenshot above to go to the SpiceBird website, if you’re interested. It’s an 11 Mb download. If I find anything I like better, I’ll be sure to let everyone know. But for now, it’s SpiceBird for me 🙂
