Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Soars to New Heights

Mozilla PR:
Mozilla Thunderbird 2, the latest version of the popular, free and open source email client, is available worldwide today. Thunderbird 2 allows users to easily manage and organize email with tags, advanced folder views, and fast inbox and message searches. Users can also customize Thunderbird 2 with add-ons that match individual preferences.

“Thunderbird 2 has powerful new features and proven security, delivering an improved email experience to users worldwide,” said Scott MacGregor, lead engineer for Thunderbird at Mozilla. “In Thunderbird 2, we incorporated the proven benefits of tagging to email. Tagging initially gained popularity on blogs, photo and link-sharing sites as an intuitive way to organize online information so users could easily find desired content.”

Thunderbird 2 users can choose from hundreds of add-ons to customize the application for their needs. By integrating professional networking tools, VOIP calling, and shared address books directly into Thunderbird, users can expand the email client into a versatile information and communications hub.

Thunderbird 2 is available now as a free download for Windows, Mac and Linux, in more than 30 language versions.

I've been testing pre-release versions of Thunderbird 2 since February 1, and I have to say, it's decent. There are enough differences between Thunderbird and Outlook to be annoying, especially since some can't be easily rectified, but it's a good email product and of course you can't beat the price. I'll review this soon on the SuperSite.
