I was an MS Outlook user and my whole staff was using the same application for the past four years. But due to the increased demand for Desktop-based email client in our office, I decided to change my email platform from Outlook to Thunderbird. The decision was well thought and was taken considering the benefits of the organization. I was aware of the challenges that we might face in migrating the data of Outlook to Thunderbird. However, this challenge does not stop us and we moved from Outlook to Thunderbird. Thankfully, we didn't lose any of our email data during the migration process.
