Thunderbird piping for the fjords
I am a believer in local copy of all emails (and still having a cloud option!). Call me old-fashioned if you will. Since I often work on emails offline (on planes or in foreign countries where I don’t have unlimited data plan), it comes really handy. It seems I’ll have to find a new client that will cope with my 8Gb mail archive. But not sooner than in a few years, and who knows what happens till then.
Mozilla is cutting development on ThunderBird. And where’s Chandler when you need it? Seriously though, it’s probably an inevitable move from Mozilla. Desktop email clients that look like Outlook are a legacy product. And Mozilla has to husband its scarce resources very carefully these days.
