    Old is New Again

    It seems that this software application basically gives you the same kind of features that any "old school" email client from 20 years ago provided.

    Or perhaps not, as there's nothing to prevent Facebook and Twitter and any other site from changing their API to lock out 3rd party applications like this one, causing Mailbird to easily morph into Jailbird.

    Mailbird

    It's an "OK" email client. Nice feature set. BUT, it's a resource hog and it doesn't play well with Gmail. Seems no matter how low you set the simultaneous connects, Gmail says "too many". To be sure, Thunderbird get the same thing but doesn't seem to be as frequent in getting them. Outlook doesn't get them at all. Tech support for Mailbird is very responsive once you get past the Captcha/anti-robot stuff.

    No.

    Mailbird is hilariously feature-free. I'm shocked they can charge for it.

    - There's no way to see folders other than your inbox.
    - There's no way too see mail headers
    - Most alarmingly, there's no way to keep local copies of mail, e.g. for search or backup purposes

    These are BASIC features of any credible IMAP client, and yet they're utterly missing here. When I corresponded with the Mailbird folks in May, they seemed suprirsed that someone might even want to DO these things; one gets the idea that email isn't something they use very much.

    Compare this with Outlook, or Thunderbird (which is *free*) or Mail.app on the Mac (which comes with MacOS), and Mailbird comes away looking pretty darn weak. It's like an unfinished student project.
