Why Use Mozilla Thunderbird?

There are a multitude of reasons to use Thunderbird as your email application. Here are a few reasons, all of which will be discussed in depth in subsequent chapters.

It’s Secure

Worried about security? Relax. Thunderbird has powerful security features that will help keep you out of harm’s way. First, because it does not permit scripts to run by default (JavaScript is switched off by default), it makes it more difficult for worms, trojan horses, and viruses that are running rampant on the Internet to block your productivity or, worse yet, cause irreparable damage to your computer and files. Additionally, Thunderbird’s remote image-blocking capabilities add a further layer of protection to your privacy and security. This does not mean that you shouldn’t take proper precautions and use a good anti-virus program on your computer system to make sure you are fully protected.
