comment Is there another email service that threads conversations like how Gmail does?
Oh, I guess it only works like Gmail with new emails. I just tested it out, sending out 1 email from Thunderbird (linked with my GMX Mail account) to my Gmail account, then replying from Gmail back to GMX, then replying from T-bird/GMX back to Gmail, then replying again from Gmail. In T-bird, I now see all 4 emails together in 1 entry or conversation. That is how I want it, just like Gmail. But this extension was not able to collect earlier emails into 1 conversation, emails that were already in the inbox before the extension was installed.

Hmmm... I finally installed thunderbird and this extension. It doesn't seem to work quite right. Maybe I didn't set it up correctly? It didn't combine different emails in my inbox into 1 entry, even though those different emails were part of the same "conversation". (They have the same subject.) For instance, I sent an email, received a reply, replied to that reply, then received another reply. I still see both replies to me as two separate entries in Thunderbird, rather than all 4 emails (both sent and received) in 1 thread, which is how it would be in Gmail. Why the difference?

Hmm nice! This will be more complicated, since I've never used Thunderbird and will have to install it and set it up to work with the email account. But this sounds like a good approach. By the way, with Thunderbird, all the emails will be downloaded to my computer, won't they? (And disappear from the online inbox?) Isn't that how any email client software such as T-bird works? I can't vote up either of these 2 answers but I would if my rep would allow it.

Oh, interesting! Thanks, I didn't know this. I haven't gone back to Hotmail in a long time. Now, if only there was another service that is not so popular, because I will surely not be able to register the name.lastname@hotmail.com that I want, without adding some numbers or whatever due to how popular hotmail is...
