LXer: E-mail paradigm shift: From IMAP to POP on the clichéd wings of Thunderbird

Published at LXer:

I've been accessing my main e-mail account via IMAP for years now. With IMAP, the mail stays on the server, and the mail client brings down the headers and then any messages necessary. That way I can go anywhere, use any computer and have access to that mail with another mail program, or use the same mail server's Web interface to check up on my latest messages. My main mail client is Thunderbird. I can't say I'm deliriously happy with it. One reason I use Thunderbird is that it's available for Windows and Unix/Linux, so I can use it in any of the hundreds of GNU/Linux distributions, in any BSD system, on my Windows box at work, and even on Mac OS if I felt like it (I don't).
