Which e-mail client should you use? Microsoft Office Outlook has been dominant in the E-Mail client scene for many years. However how about now? Let's compare the world's leading E-Mail clients, Microsoft Outlook 2013 and Mozilla Thunderbird
If we take into consideration practicality and appearance, Microsoft Office Outlook 2013 wins by far. Mozilla Thunderbird does not feature so much as Outlook does. However, Microsoft Outlook is not free as Mozilla Thunderbird, so that makes up for it. Mozilla Thunderbird is also available for multiple OSes, such as Windows XP+, Mac OS, and any type of Linux, in contrast to Outlook which is only available for Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Outlook, features a built in full featured Calendar, which is extremely useful especially in an office environment. Thunderbird does not feature a built in Calendar, but there are plugins that let you add one. The beauty of Mozilla Thunderbird is that it's open source, thus thousands of programmers can improve its cons.
