The verdict is that I did not feel appealing or awesome immediately. The reason I guess is that from where I got migrated.
I was using NS Communicator 7.02 previously and almost all the features that were present in NS is available in Thuderbird. So I guess I could not appreciate the excellence of Thuderbird immediately. Hoping that in the long run, Thunderbird would be my prefered email client.
The compelling reasons for the switch from NS is
- Close association of Thunderbird to Firefox
- Large memory footprint of NS (annoying)
- Email composer is not that keyboard friendly
- Email Composer lacks complete support for table (advanced options) and other complex formatting
