Thunderbird is an easy-to-use, complete email and news reader program. Many of the features Firefox offers, such as themes and extensions, are available in Thunderbird as well. Thunderbird and Firefox can be used either together or separately.

A comprehensive set of features is included with Thunderbird that will appeal to all users. Thunderbird has a flexible and powerful spam and junk mail filter. It is a news (NNTP) reader, but to be fair, Outlook Express is also a news reader program. Thunderbird also has a built-in spell checker, so there is no excuse for misspelled words in emails.
