How to add your Google Apps Mail account to Thunderbird

One thing that I love about Postbox is it’s complete support for tonnes of email services. However, sadly, Postbox has turned paid. As a result, I decided to give Thunderbird 3 beta a shot. And, I’ve come back disappointed.

One main reason I jumped to Postbox is that Gmail takes an hour to load on normal non-broadband connections. Besides Gmail, Yahoo and Windows Live Mail, I also use Google Apps for email (yes I know a lot of email addresses!)

So, I was rather surprised to find that Thunderbird (on which Postbox is based), doesn’t directly support Google Apps, as it does Gmail POP and Gmail IMAP. So, in this post, I will guide you through adding your Google Apps account now.

Now, in Gmail Labs, you’ll find a new feature that will delay the sent email for five seconds before it is sent. During this time you will be hit the Undo button and stop the email from being sent.

Gmail finally fixes Mark as Unread

One thing ever Gmail user loves is the conversation view. However, one painful experience with the conversation view is the "Mark as Unread" feature which used to mark the entire conversation as unread, which means that you had to figure out exactly which was the first unread post, the next time you opened up the conversation again. This has always been a painful experience especially if you have ten or more emails as part of the conversation.

Now Check your Hotmail / Windows Live Mail Offline

When, I reviewed Postbox a few weeks back, they still hadn’t added support Windows Live Mail / Hotmail. However, in their b8 and subsequently b9 release, one-click integration with Windows Live Mail was added. However, even then, Hotmail required you pay for POP3 access.
