Thunderbird 3, il peggiore di sempre

Chi di voi, appassionato dei prodotti Mozilla, non ha provato il nuovo Thunderbird 3 alzi la mano.

Io per sfortuna ci ho avuto a che fare sin dalla versione 3.0 beta 1, parecchio tempo fa, quasi un anno direi. Essendo una beta c’erano parecchie cose che non andavano: i nuovi tab che non funzionavano bene, la gestione degli account – che avrebbe dovuto essere automatizzata nella fase di creazione – era un disastro, cartelle che venivano popolate a caso con i messaggi in arrivo e distribuite senza una logica ferrea, etc. Uno dice: è una beta, aspettiamo di vedere la release definitiva. E invece, niente di nuovo!

La versione stabile di Thunderbird 3, rilasciata non troppo tempo fa, è un completo disastro. La cartella “Tutti i messaggi”, che dovrebbe raccogliere i messaggi in arrivo da tutti gli account è completamente desincronizzata con gli account stessi. Es., leggo tutti i messaggi della mia casella di posta, e poi mi accorgo che la cartella “Tutti i messaggi” contiene ancora gli stessi messaggi segnati come non letti. L’aggiunta automatizzata degli account di posta, poi, funziona benissimo solo se avete protocollo POP3 o IMAP 4/5 senza particolari accorgimenti. Se già state usando connessioni sicure (SSL) il sistema si pianta e cerca di trovare in automatico i server in ingresso e in uscita che però non troverà mai. Provare per credere.

Ma il peggio deve ancora arrivare: il filtro antispam. Una cosa che ho sempre apprezzato di Thunderbird (1 o 2) era l’eccezionale filtro antispam. Nei primi due o tre giorni di addestramento il tasso di falsi positivi (posta buona che viene considerata per errore spam) era veramente bassissimo e dopo circa una settimana arrivava completamente a zero. Sulla versione 3, invece, apriti cielo! Il buon vecchio filtro Bayesiano è stato peggiorato all’inverosimile, producendo un tasso di falsi positivi elevatissimo anche dopo mesi di utilizzo. Basti dire che la posta che mi invia mio padre viene per errore messa nello spam dopo 2-3 mesi di utilizzo di questo orrendo client di posta.

Non mi dilungo oltre, perché ce ne sarebbe da dire per ore. L’unico mio rammarico è la brutta piega che sta prendendo Mozilla. Con Firefox 1.5 e Thunderbird 2 si era messa in cima al mondo, ma la strada è stata poi sempre in salita. L’avvento di Google Chrome gli sta tagliando le gambe, e la concorrenza di Gmail è ormai spietata. Ce la farà mai a rimettersi in carreggiata? Secondo me no.

  19. Thanks for sharing your ideas right here. The other issue is that any time a problem comes up with a pc motherboard, folks should not consider the risk of repairing it themselves for if it is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to all the laptop. It’s usually safe to approach any dealer of any laptop for the repair of the motherboard. They will have technicians who may have an skills in dealing with laptop motherboard complications and can make right analysis and conduct repairs.
