I beg to differ on all counts. When an
email client takes well over 700 MB of ram, stops responding
while browsing messages, takes 20 or more seconds to browse
folders, I have a hard time using it or being productive. This
is on a machine with an SSD, Ryzen 7 processor and plenty of
ram to use, that being said.
Maybe things have changed lately – I’m more
than willing to give thunderbird another go – but outlook has
come leaps and bounds even over the last year, too, with both
Jaws and NVDA.
Funny, outlook is the example I give when someone asks me
about sluggish software. Outlook paired with a certain other
program named after a movie shark is even more so!

Thunderbird is amazingly sluggish for me
and takes up well over 700 MB of ram. How is this okay (not
aimed at anyone here). Maybe it was my configuration.
I’ve been using Microsoft outlook which,
surprisingly, works very well. Windows mail worked fantastic
too though from what I remember it did not close threaded
messages correctly and kept them all expanded. I’m not sure
if that has been fixed.
I actually agree.
Its got its own niggles but its still good enough.
And with waterfox, I just tried a full run.
While there are sites which will generate freezes, its only
1 or 2 and I can get round them.
Quite impressed with it, seems to be mostly working and

Thunderbird is great and responds really really quickly!
and that's coming from someone who stubbornly stuck to
using eudora, even into Windows 10.
Yes, I used Eudora for probably twenty years. LOL
Just curious, what annoys you about
Thunderbird? It is highly customizable, so maybe you
just need to tweak some things.

Hi, which PC app do you like for
mail. I'm watching out for something to replace
