Thunderbird Mail Application

In my last post, I wrote about some challenges that I was facing performing image alignment in emails. If you missed it; I couldn't get embedded photos to align right and have text wrap. I tried Apple Mail, Outlook and Google's gmail.

The search is over!

I was able to get the formatting I needed by using Thunderbird email client by Mozilla. Thunderbird is a free email application that's easy to set up and customize - and it's loaded with great features! One of the features is the ability to have more control with images in emails.

The formatting capabilities in Thunderbird allows me to format the emails exactly like I did in Windows Outlook. I am still a lost at why Apple didn't include any image alignment functionalities. I did a test run and verified that the sent emails look great in Windows Outlook and in Apple Mail.

Thunderbird has built in chat functionality - supporting Jabber chat. While most of my company is using another chat client, part of the company is on the legacy chat. For now, I have found a replacement for my new hardware configuration.

During my research, I discovered a practical email application called Mail Designer Pro 2.3. The application makes it easy to create professional looking emails. The emails will look good regardless of what platform or device you use - even on the iWatch. This might be a solution that I may use down the road when I may want to send emails.
