How to Import Outlook and Thunderbird Accounts in 2018

Posted by Jason Ephraim on March 7, 2018

New Feature Announcement: Outlook and Thunderbird Account Import That’s right! Starting today, folders, settings, and messages from popular POP3 email clients like Outlook and Thunderbird will import automagically when connected. That means that any folders, emails, or anything else we can bring into Mailbird through your other client’s POP3 or IMAP connection can be instantly imported with the click of a button! We’ve had a ton of requests for this feature, and it has taken a lot of time and manpower to make sure that this feature will work for every possible client and version. It’s taken a ton of time to ensure every version of Outlook, Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail will work. We are ecstatic that it is finally ready for you! Start Importing automagically Once you installed Mailbird or chose the option to “add another account”, Mailbird will give the option to “import from another email client”.   Mailbird will detect the accounts that you have added to your existing email client. Choose the account you would like to import to your Mailbird. The last step to activate the import – insert your email address and password and Mailbird will set up the account for you. Depending on how many accounts you have selected in the previous step, you may be asked to enter the details multiple times. One for each account.   Voilà! That’s it. Mailbird will start the import of your account data, such as folders, settings, and messages. It will also let you know once it is…

The Best Way to Unsend Email in 2018

Posted by Jason Ephraim on March 6, 2018

Ever wish you could Unsend that last Email? Have you ever sent an email only to realize you sent it to the wrong person? Or, maybe you’ve sent an email referencing an attachment you forgot to include? Spelling errors. Grammar mistakes. Wrong name. Wrong attachments… It’s easy to feel a little anxious about clicking that send button. Especially, if you have ever experienced that sinking, dreadful feeling of seeing an error in an email you just sent- and knowing you are powerless to do anything about it.   Potential for Disaster   Now, most of the time it’s not a big deal if a bad email goes out the door: • Most people won’t notice that misplaced apostrophe. • You can quickly follow up with another email with the correct attachment. • You can send a message telling them to disregard your previous email. • And so on… But, every so often, there are situations where sending an email with what may seem like a small error on it or even clicking on something you shouldn’t have, can have huge and far reaching repercussions. This can have an impact on: Your career – if this happens to you regularly or if the mistake is a big one, it can tarnish your reputation within your workplace Your personal relationships – while friends and family are more forgiving than work can be, emails with incorrect information can still make you look bad or untrustworthy Your financial security – Clicking on viruses or malware can put your financial…

Mailbird – Best Email App for Windows 10 in 2018

Posted by Christin on February 19, 2018

Finally, Mailbird for Windows 10 is Here! …and has been delivered to millions of PCs and devices of patient users all over the world already. Microsoft has announced it to be the best and most beautiful Windows yet, that makes you a master at multi-tasking and adapts to you and your behavior transforming your PC in to your personal assistant. It introduced new technologies such as Cortana integrated in the new web browser Edge, which allows you to write or type directly on web pages and now Microsoft is taking the PC experience to a new level. We believe you need an email client that matches the new, beautiful appearance for Windows 10. An all-in-one communication and productivity suite that can keep up with the most productive Windows ever , putting old-fashioned and cluttered clients out of business. Welcome to the Windows 10 version of Mailbird. It’s glorious. Feedback on Mailbird for Windows 10 has been awesome, starting in just the first hours of the launch. Many Windows 10 fans are complaining about the native Windows 10 email client, saying that it has been disappointing.   Q: What brought you to Mailbird in the first place? A: Because Windows 10 default email client fails at “Email Privacy Tester” and at displaying quoted messages from Mac’s email client.   After trying Windows 10 Mail, I still prefer Mailbird over Mail 🙂 Mailbird feels more minimalist, lightweight, and has better shortcuts. Also, Mailbird shows all mail in the same thread on the same page, which Mail doesn’t.   Q: What is the most important feature of…
