  Home > Customer Service > Hate Spam? We Prescribe Thunderbird

Why Mozilla Thunderbird?
Thunderbird is an open-source development built by the same developers of the popular Firefox browser. Just like Outlook Express, Thunderbird is full-featured email client with lots of perks under its belts. Features like real-time search, adaptive junk mail filtering, anti-phishing protection, and image privacy protection have convinced many users to switch.

As a Thunderbird user, the most impressive feature by far is the adaptive spam filters. It works in conjunction with Spam Assassin to detect and tag suspected spams and automatically move to the Junk folder. Better yet, any untagged spams coming into your inbox can be manually marked as Junk by clicking on to the "Junk Can" icon. Its adaptive filters will then remember the originating email address and/or the respective domain name and will add this new data to the anti-spam algorithms.

After 6 months of training to my filter system, I have seen a satisfactory decrease in junk mail in my inbox.

More powerful features than Outlook Express:
Just like Windows LiveMail or Gmail, Thunderbird, by default, does not display any images in the HTML emails. It prevents virus attacks or spammer's email receipt conversation tracking. Another interesting feature is its anti-phishing filter. HTML emails with outgoing links that does not correspond to the URL displayed on the email will be marked as "Thunderbird thinks this email is a scam." I enjoy such features as it has prevented me from being scammed by various online banking spoofing and phishing (or hamešonnage in french) scams.

This newly found feature is a true gem - "View: Not Junk". It can be easily set up that your Inbox is only displaying emails that are not marked as Junk. Works in conjunction with the anti-spam filters, my Inbox can soon declare "I got no spam", as famously quoted by John C. Dvorak on TwIT.

For more information:
Thunderbird is available on Windows, OS X (both Intel/PowerPC based), and Linux and in 35 different languages.
Download Mozilla Thunderbird Mozilla Thunderbird. Try out Thunderbird and see for yourself. If your email account has IMAP settings, you can have both Outlook Express and Thunderbird coexist and evaluate its anti-spam filters.
