Mailbird installer froze and crashed on first install.

It didn't crash, it just took about 7 minutes to end the install, while giving me a 'continue' button that ignored me.

>mailbird

Is this better than thunderbird?

The paid version is great, if you want to pay.  The free version only lets you have one account.

Well that's kind of ridiculous. I don't mind paying, but trying it out will require usage of more than one account.

The trial allows use of multiple accounts i think, not tried it yet but the intro screen implied that.

The trial is for multiple accounts and it worked fine for me.  Much better than Thunderbird or Mail did.

I bought it, only a tenner for a year.

Fast interface, would be good if you could choose which accounts were included in the unified inbox. Has the basic functionality i need.
Doesn't take 2 minutes to mark an email as read when you click on it like Outlook 2016 does (even when Outlook is set to mark as read within 2 seconds).

It's having trouble with SMTP, hanging on sending with no error.
