  • From 17.0, Tenfourbird doesn't contains Enigmail add-on. It provide separately. Enigmail for Tenfourbird 10.0.* or before does not automatically update. You should manually download and install Enigmail for Tenfourbird 17.0.* or later.

I'm impressed with Tenfourbird 24, which feels more snappy to me than version 17. I reported a pesky menu issue in early November that has since been resolved (thanks again to our anonymous friend in Japan!). I've been using Tfb 24 to access a mix of one POP and three IMAP accounts across three different mail providers for 7+ weeks and it's been very stable. Nice work.

The update to TenFourBird 17 from 10 doesn't seem like that big of a step to me. I have been very happy with the upgrade from TenFourFox 10 to 17 but I can hardly see any improvement in the email app that is an upgrade over the way it was done before. I was hoping for a better tagging system like TFF. Also the inactive tags look a little weird, wonder why they changed that?

Last sentence should have said "inactive TABS" not "inactive tags."

Tenfourbird 17.0b2 may have a larger memory footprint, but some aspects, including searches, feel significantly faster to me than they did in 10.0.10. I will be interested to hear what others think.

Sweet! I was hoping they would port Thunderbird over to PPC! The main problem I have with it is that tagging support is rather mediocre in my opinion. It is too hard to search my tag and too hard to apply tags.

great email client for PPC Macs! Kudos to the developer for porting this to our PPC Macs! thank you:) Fast, stable, secure, easy to use and easy to import your Apple Mail email inboxes into Tenfourbird.

I've been using Tenfourbird exclusively for a few weeks now and have had no issues. It is a bit hard to gauge the performance of an email client, but Tenfourbird 10.0.3_2 feels noticeably more snappy to me than Thunderbird 3.1.20. Anyone who still uses a PPC-based Mac should appreciate the efforts of the person who built Tenfourbird, which is based on TenFourFox, especially now that Mozilla has dropped support for the Thunderbird 3.1 branch.

i concur! Tenfourbird is a solid email client and imho is better than Apple Mail App for PPC Macs! I love the stability and the secure nature of Tenfourbird-- and ofcourse the speed! Thanks to the developer who ported this to the PPC Mac platform! Kudos to you:)
