Windows 10: Mailbird (email): £1 per month for pro version?!
Mailbird (email): £1 per month for pro version?!
I am trying Mailbird. I like it. However, the free trial (of the full version) expires soon and the continuation of the full version costs $1 per month, 12 months payable in advance by various routes including Paypal.
This seems odd. Why bother with such a small sum. What's the catch?
(Admittedly, £12 from, say, 10,000 users is £120,000 per year, a useful sum for a few nights out.)
I've never used it. I've been using Thunderbird for years, and it's free. Does what I want.
Yes, I used Thunderbird until a year ago but changed to gmail (using Google's browser as the front end). The Thunderbird sites strongly imply that T'bird was no longer being maintained. Mailbird is simple and has a clean interface. It works with gmail. I like it. It has a similar interface as Apple's Mail.
Where did you hear that?

A new version was released just 2 days ago.
Active, independent, user-to-user community still going strong.
(Support at Mozilla.org has never been as robust as that for Firefox, but that is not new.)
Having said that, it's true the TB is no longer a very high priority at Mozilla. But there are still many, many users.
If Mozilla eventually loses interest, I expect (but cannot guarantee) that someone else will pick it up.
Perhaps my "not being maintained" was a bit too strong.
" At the same time, it was announced that Mozilla Foundation will provide at least a temporary legal and financial home for the Thunderbird project."
I can't remember the source of the following:
"Having said that, it's true the TB is no longer a very high priority at Mozilla. But there are still many, many users.

This refers to T'bird "not being dead".
Also, I found T'bird over-complex for my simple needs.
I run Mailbird & IMO it's excellent. Started off with free version but as it's limited to 2 accounts (& I have 6). I sse no catch.
Me too. I have three accounts. After a week of using Mailbird I really like it. It does everything I want and is so easy to use.
FWIW, I found that Em Client to be a great third party email tool.
Link: eM Client | Best Email Client for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10
Free and pro versions are available.
Why would you pay for an email client when there are so many free ones available. There are a couple of paid clients such as The Bat! and PostBox, neither of which I have understood a paid model.
Oh yes, there's plenty of free stuff out there & not all of it blasts you with ads & pop-ups etc but I think if a bunch of people produce some decent software that I like then I'm prepared to pay them something for their time.
Furthermore it's only £12 a year - not a great amount for what it does & also (and this is in no way directed at you or anyone else) it makes me feel less of a cheapskate
I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty...
Last night I received my 3rd blue screen error in about a month. That one and the previous one said "system service exception (netio.sys)." I forget if the first time this happened the error listed the same.
Anyway, here's my log file...
Lots of BSODs and I'm tearing my hair out. Please help! If someone can look through and give me some clues, that would be great.
1. I've tested memory with memtest so far
2. HDD with chkdsk / HDD tune etc
3. Checked internal cabling, everything...
I have installed the update on Friday and could not print emails from Windows Live Mail or any other free similar software.
Meanwhile all other printing including weblinked worked normally.
Returned back to the previous Windows10 v 10586.71...
I upgraded to Win10 recently and I have an issue that I was only able to find two insiders had in the past with no resolution. I previously had Windows 8.1 and did an upgrade to 10 on both my laptop and my desktop. The problem I'm having...
