Question: What is Thunderbird?
Answer: Thunderbird is a program that allows you to send and receive email. You can connect to the Internet, download your messages, and then disconnect. Afterwards, you can type up your replies, then reconnect to the Internet, and then have Thunderbird send the emails out and disconnect you from the Internet when it is done sending. This is great for users who have a dial-up Internet connection that has a limited amount of time to be online. Thunderbird also has the ability to tag an email so that it can be flagged with messages such as “Important”, “To do”, and “Later”. You can even create your own tags through Thunderbird by selecting the down arrow to the right of Tags, then giving it a name and selecting a color.
