It seems like the designers probably pine for Apple's UI and will always be held back and stunted by that.

    That said, since quite a few places have switched to non-standard EWS (Microsoft profiteering from COVID), Thunderbird has been very useful in providing decent support. I use it along with davmail to babysit Microsoft's silly protocols.
    Well... even Apple users have a choice in what software they want to use, and Apple's mail client isn't everyone's favorite.

    Eagerly waiting the day that the message list pane is finally brought into the modern world by allowing more than 1 line in each row.

    A bit of a warning that this release makes profile changes that are not backwards compatible. That is if you upgrade to TB78 you cannot got back to earlier versions of Thunderbird without restoring a backup or resetting (deleting) your existing profile.
