The new Mailbird Installers are out, and man are they cool.

Installers you say? Why plural?

Ah, I’ll get to that little bit of genius in just a sec (it’s tweak no. 4 if you’re in a rush). Let’s start at the top though.

What’s new and awesome with the new installer?


Tweak no. 1: Faster

14% faster to be exact. The new installer moves blisteringly fast, getting Mailbird installed, up, and running live within a few minutes (how many, exactly, depends on your internet connection…unless you use the Offline Installer).

With this faster tweak, we’re saving you time before you’ve even begun using Mailbird.

Tweak no. 2: Bug-Free

Ah, bugs. The bane of every software program, especially the betas.

The old Mailbird installer had a fair few of them. Sometimes, you wouldn’t notice them at all, and Mailbird would install perfectly. Other times….well, Mailbird wouldn’t install at all.

Not anymore, though. The new installer works seamlessly on any Windows computer, running on any hardware. No more problems, just a quick and clean install.

Tweak no. 3: Customizable

Our old installer was very hands-off. It took care of the location of the files by itself, without bothering you about it.

The new installer still does…if you want it to. And now, if you’re more hands-on, you have the option to tell it to save all Mailbird files wherever you want them saved, instead of the default.

Tweak no. 4: Offline Installation

Most of what the Mailbird Installer spends it’s time doing is downloading the Mailbird files from our server. This makes it easier to download the installer itself since it’s so small.

But what if your internet connection isn’t so hot/is non-existent? Usually, that would mean no installation for you, sucker. It’ll just crash halfway through if it even manages to start.

We’ve solved that problem too, though, with two installers. The regular installer you already know about. And now there’s the offline installer, which comes with all of Mailbird’s building materials already inside of its 26MB body.

Installing from the Mailbird Offline Installer will work no matter what your internet connection looks like.


So how do you go about installing it?

It’s a pretty simple set up. Just download the regular installer here, or the offline installer here, and you’re good to go.

    Online installers absolutely sucks! Sorry, I have to tell that. First because many people uses firewalls and you have to respond to more popups, next because it’s great to have offline installer for later use. When I go outside of cities I need everything on my hard drive so I can install any program anytime. The internet speeds (and prices) are still so bad around the world so it’s a must to have installers with you. The only good thing about online installers is that it downloads the latest version but the offline one can have that in-build function to ask for a fresh version.

    I don’t know who first introduced the online installers but it didn’t calculated everything first.

    I don’t want to spread hate but I hate online installers 🙂

    Thanks for amazing email checker app!

    Downloading offline installer took ages from my location in Indonesia. Kindly please bump up that bandwidth on your server. Need mailbird to run on old machine and hardware (which supposedly one of your captive market), online installer just can’t do it with old wireless network hardware.

  • Do you support dynamic password,My company email’s password is consist of settled passwd and dynamic number..when I set Identities,it tell me the smtp server error…

  • @disqus_lQhExpqxFs:disqus Can you let us know in That way we can help you fix it.

  • getting error while updating ;/

  • Outstanding.. Once multi-account support goes live this will be amazing.
    Having the ability to put the program where you want is important.
    Great updates everyone. I just hope it is every file. The current
    build-up of files due to auto updating is a little large. However, the
    fact that everything and I do mean everything is removed when you
    uninstall mailbird, truly is the bi-product of a great, well thought out
    application. The product is really forging forward and once perfected,
    might just take over the world.. Hey Pinky, you out there?
