As of July 2012, Thunderbird has transitioned to a new governance model, with new features being developed by the broader free software and open source community, and security fixes and improvements handled by Mozilla.

Thunderbird is a free, open-source, cross-platform e-mail and news client developed by the Mozilla Foundation. The project strategy is modeled after Mozilla Firefox, a project aimed at creating a Web browser.

Someone at MU needs to update the "no longer being actively developed" notice at the top of this page. It may not be under active development by the Mozilla team, but its under active community development.

Great new version. Some small bugs and shortcomings fixed. Used it for years. Will use it for years. Five stars for encouraging Team Thunderbird for not giving up on this software. Webmail is for soccer moms. :-)

What is wrong with this app? Why knock it down?

Nothing is wrong with Thunderbird. But why comment with "Great new version" without giving any actual reason. You can give a rating without comment if you have nothing new to add.

I like it and that's why i said "great Version".I gave a rating without comment. Does it offend you? Are you being more than hypocritical? Why are you commenting at all?

Yep, second that. But, why do I keep going back to crap Apple Mail? There is still something missing from Thunderbird and I can't work out what.

I like this email client, and currently use it as a substitute for Mail in Mavericks 10.9.1. It's solid, stable, and works well with the Exchange server at work (using plugin ExQuilla).
The biggest benefit right now is how it handles Google mail. Apple Mail has a real problem with Google mail due to the way Google has changed how it uses IMAP. For some reason, Thunderbird handles Google mail just fine.
I suspect Apple will fix Mail and release the fix in the next Mavericks update. I may switch back then, but I gotta say Thuderbird impresses me.
I'd give it 4 stars except the DANG RATING got stuck at 3.5 and I can't change it!

All the hard work and countless hours committed to Mozilla by open source developers...and you nail them on the rating because you're too lazy to figure out how to correct it.

Not cool, man. As a developer, I would much rather you abandoned the review instead of shorting me on the rating because you found it too confusing.

So much has changed. In 1995, I was barely browsing the internet and getting my e-mail through CompuServe. In just a few years, I was using Claris em@iler and then, Eudora. One of Eudora's many bugs re-arranged the mail I could see, and I switched to Thunderbird.

The one reason I use Thunderbird is history. While I delete the majority of e-mail, there are certain things I need to keep, so it's good to have an e-mail client that not only allows keeping e-mail, but to allow me to search it quickly--and never misplaces any of it.

Interesting that the release version is still at 24.x because the beta is up to 27.0. I've found the beta to be completely stable, and presumably they are based on the latest betas of Firefox.

Interesting. I thought this project was put to rest forever, but I'm glad to see it is still receiving some attention.

Yes, indeed. I thought any updates would only be security fixes, but the description at the top here seems to suggest that there will be ongoing, open development.

Never understood why development was going to cease. It's a very good, simple to use, and comprehensive email client.

They just didn't see the need to put serious money into it when many people use their web browser (or mobile device) to view their e-mail.

If there was a Google mail client on the desktop, there might not be a continuing Thunderbird.

This version is great and extremely easy to use. I feel the interface is easy to view my mail and newsgroups. I like it better than some Newsreaders that are not compatible with Mavericks.
