Tips for Thunderbird



Thunderbird (TB) is the state of the art free replacement for Microsoft Outlook.

At the time I write this, TB is currently in V52.

For the best TB experience it is important to have:
— Thunderbird
There is only a 32-bit version.
Download it from: https://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird


— Dictionaries
The following dictionaries are the most important ones:
 1) English;
 2) French;
 3) German;
 4) Spanish;
 5) Portuguese.

They can be downloaded from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/general
The Portuguese default dictionary is the postreform.
You can download the prereform from: http://natura.di.uminho.pt/wiki/doku.php?id=dicionarios:main
