Tips for Thunderbird
HomeThunderbird




Thunderbird (TB) is the state-of-the-art free replacement for Microsoft Outlook.

At the time I update this, TB is currently in V60.

For the best TB experience, it is important to have:
— Thunderbird
There is only a 32-bit version.
Download it: https://www.thunderbird.net


— Dictionaries
The following dictionaries are the most important ones:
 1) English;
 2) French;
 3) German;
 4) Spanish;
 5) Portuguese.

Download them: https://addons.thunderbird.net/thunderbird/language-tools/general
The Portuguese default dictionary is the reform.
