Hi :)
Outlook is not OpenSouce so it can't be taken under TDF's wing and given a
home here.

There isn't really much choice in terms of which email client and looking
around into comparisons of different ones.

The ethos of TDF and LibreOffice is largely to ensure it "plays well with
others".  As i understand it LO works reasonably well with a  wide variety
of email clients and i can't see that changing.

The 2 broad questions i think we can explore at this stage are;
1.  Would it be good to have an email-client that outsiders and noobs may
begin to perceive as being closely linked with LibreOffice?

Almost all responses have been very positive.  Most went straight into
finer details.  The few potential issues were a long way from being

2.  If so, could we cope with Thunderbird being "under the same umbrella"as

Again almost all agreed.  Most raised questions about details of
implentation, and pointed out potential problem areas.  Again no blockers,
so nothing insurmountablee = just some wise words about maintaining some

Regars to all from
Tom :)

Please do not spread FUD. This is blatantly false.



Can Thunderbrid really retrieve 2GB per hour from 20+ accounts,
without losing email?

You seriously receive 2+GB of *new* email per *hour*?

Not sure what kind of real world scenario that falls into - unless
you're a spammer and those are bounces from your latest spamathon.

But, as long as you have a big enough pipe, I don't see why it wouldn't
be able to do it, yes, without losing email.

Can Thunderbird really compact folders without losing data, whilst doing
that email retrieval operation?

As long as you aren't attempting to compact the Inbox that is currently
being written to (expecting otherwise is ignorant), and I guarantee you
Outlook would experience corruption in such a case too

If so, I'm really surprised, because the developers told me that those
were "won't fix" bugs.

Really? Care to share the link to said discussion? Because if your
complaint was about a corrupted Inbox when attempting to download 100+MB
of emails to it while compacting it at the same time, then they were
correct to tell you that.
