Mozilla Thunderbird is an open source program made by the makers of Firefox that allows users to manage their e-mail accounts and news feeds. Thunderbird allows users to save their contacts in the program; however, contacts stored in Windows Contacts can be imported using a free add-on available from Mozilla's website. Thunderbird can be downloaded for free for both PC and Mac from Mozilla's website, and the program can link to virtually all e-mail accounts using POP, IMAP and Exchange.
