Bangalore: Well surprisingly, it is true and really disappointing. Recently open source giant, Mozilla confirmed the news that they no longer be developing their longest standing email client, Thunderbird. This report undoubtedly created waves of shock across a lot of Thunderbird users. So now the big question, are you ready to make the move?

Well, worry not; for every creation there is an alternative and Thunderbird holds the same. The following list contains top five alternative desktop email clients for enterprises. All these email clients are similar to Thunderbird as they are open-source multi-platform email clients, comprised of native options.

So with that being said, let’s take a look at the top 5 alternatives.

#5 EudoraOSE (Open Source Edition):

Eudora OSE (Open Source Edition), formerly codenamed Penelope, is an extension for the Mozilla Thunderbird email client software implementing some features of Eudora.

On October 11, 2006, Qualcomm and the Mozilla Foundation announced future versions of Eudora would be based on the Mozilla Thunderbird platform and be open source.

The service is free and runs on Thunderbird code with additional codes and features from Qualcomm’s Eudora client.

EudoraOSE supports multiple syncs of numerous web accounts. The service comes with some pretty cool features like message redirection, comprehensive session restore, advanced attachment handling and content display controls. Other notable characteristics are group selection and type-to-select feature for quickly finding and retrieving messages.

EudoraOSE is available on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

1: There's a few issues with this report:

1) Although Mozilla itself has stopped active development, the community (just as in the case of SeaMonkey) can develop Thunderbird. Mozilla is also doing a minimum of Security and stability releases.

2) Eudora OSE hasn't been actively developed since Version 1 was released in about 2011, Eudora just haven't sent out a "We're not doing this anymore message".

3) Eudora OSE and SeaMonkey aren't services, they are applications.
