Thunderbird vs. Mail.app... why?
Authored by: st on Apr 07, '04 08:01:59AM

There are three major reasons for me to stick with Mozilla, which has an even uglier GUI than Thunderbird, but has more or less the same functionalities:

1. Option to prevent remote images to be displayed. Remote images are images that are not sent together with the message but that are downloaded from a website. With this option activated, most spam is rather harmless, sparing me images that I definitely do not want to see.

2. Folders separated by accounts. I have two IMAP mail accounts: private and business. With Mail it is not obvious which folder is on which account. With Mozilla and Thunderbird they are in two diferrent branches of the mail archive hierarchy. In fact, Mozilla supports full hierarchies, Mail, unless I'm mistaken, does not.

3. Incremental search (what some call find-as-you-type) in the message body. It's still the fastest user interface for searching texts.
