Email: Mozilla Thunderbird

Mozilla Thunderbird is a great email server for people who have multiple email accounts they would like to manage in one place.

My personal favorite feature is the built in search engine. You can do a local search in one email account, or you can do a search that encompasses all of the accounts, so you can find things even if you don't remember where they came from or where they are!

PC:
Click link below to Download the installer file;
https://www.uvm.edu/software/distribution/windows/email/UVM_Thunderbird_setup_10.0.exe
Double click to run the installer.
Follow the guidelines for installation.
Accept the license agreement.
Select "Standard Installation.
Run Thunderbird by double clicking icon on desktop.

MAC:
Click link below to Download the installer file;

A new removable disk icon will appear on your Macintosh desktop.
Open the new disk, then drag the "Thunderbird" icon to your "Application" directory.
You can then run Thunderbird by double-clicking the icon.
