Mozilla Thunderbird is packed with great features such as IMAP/POP and HTML mail support, labels, quick search, a smart address book, return receipts, advanced message filtering, LDAP address completion, import tools, powerful search, and the ability to manage multiple e-mail and newsgroup accounts.

Mozilla Thunderbird includes a fully-integrated Usenet newsgroup reader supporting all the basic functions, such as subscribing to newsgroups, downloading headers and messages, offline support and thread watching/ignoring.

It provides enterprise and government grade security features such as S/MIME, digital signing, message encryption, support for certificates and security devices. There are a large number of add-ons which extend the functionality of Thunderbird.
