If you’re managing multiple email accounts, in my opinion, Mozilla Thunderbird is absolutely the best email client you can have.
As an online marketer, I have several email addresses, all but one of them is a Gmail address. I have one I use as a primary, personal account, and the rest are for business.
I also have a Comcast email address that I set up years ago when I started using Comcast as my Internet service provider.
Web-based and Outlook vs. Thunderbird
Now, a lot of people still go on the Web to check their email, but I find it’s a real pain in the butt, seriously inconvenient, especially when you have multiple email accounts you need to manage.
And if you use email clients like Outlook or Outlook Express, you can only manage one account in the program. I know; I tried but it doesn’t work. And when you’re running a business, time is of the essence.
You don’t want to have to keep switching email programs or going online to the web-based servers where you have to log out of one account and log into another one. It’s not very convenient and doesn’t make the best use of your time.
Multiple Email Accounts in One Program – Easy!
With Thunderbird, you can handle all of your different email accounts right inside of one free email client.
It’s easy to set up and you can add multiple email accounts into the program, no matter where they’re from.
As a disclosure, I haven’t tried adding an AOL, Yahoo or Hotmail account to Thunderbird because I don’t use any of those services for email. But you can try!
Also, I highly recommend using Gmail for all of your email addresses anyway, so that’s what I use.
Now, why would anyone want to have so many email accounts anyway? That’s easy.
If you’re an online marketer, you may have a few different websites or blogs, along with your Facebook account, Google+, YouTube, etc., with different subscribers on each site.
If you’re sending out newsletters to your subscribers on a regular basis, you probably want to make sure that they’re coming from an email that’s related to that blog or social media account.
Even if you have just one at-home business, it’s still a good idea to keep your personal email separate from any business-related email.
But it’s not easier to manage if you’re stuck on using the web-based servers.
And that’s where Mozilla Thunderbird comes in. It just makes life easier!
