    100% in agreement. I was, some years ago, idly looking at alternatives to outlook. I wanted to discard office and change to oneof the other office suites available. The two account restriction on the free version was not a hindrance.
    After the setup, it migrated, entirely, everything I had in Outlook, even the contents and reminders in my calendar, I have used it since, without any hiccups

    It's not awesome compared to Outlook. For instance, there is no way pf changing the font size for message headers or email text content unless I'm missing something.

    I have used both Eudora [free & Pro] and Thunderbird back in my Windows 3.1 - Windows 95/98/98SE days. Then, suddenly, for reasons unknown to me, both Eudora and Thunderbird just did not work just they used to in times past.
    I moved to eM Client [paid-for version] because of having several email accounts, really enjoyed it.
    Because my three school districts I sub for use Google This, Google That, Google Gmail, I began heavily using Gmail.
    For a while now, I have been using eM Client to "back up" my gmail stuff. I "tell" eM Client to move, one by one, or in clumps, emails from Gmail server into my eM Client folders residing in my data partition. After each move session, I copy the eM Client folders from laptop A and paste them into laptop B. More or less bi-monthly, full image backups are made onto external usb HDDs.

    I haven't tried it because it seems a bit complex, but Any chance to adjust the font size EVERYWHERE in this ridiciously shrinked layout of Thunderbird 68.1.0? Theme Font & Size Changer is to no avail anymore. | Thunderbird Support Forum | Mozilla Support seems to indicate that you can adjust the font size.

    Mine looks a little different because I haven't upgraded to the latest version (mine is 68.12.1). But I think that refers to font size in messages, rather than headers. I'm not aware of an easy way to change the font of the message headers.

    Is that too small?

    Looks like it's following the system fonts/sizes.

    Not too small for me. I was just responding to @Steve C regarding changing the font size for message headers. The link I posted seems to suggest that you can, but I'm not going to try it, since I'm satisfied with the current font sizes.
