New Thunderbird

May 1st, 2007 · 1 Comment

There’s a new version of the Thunderbird email client available here; Version

I’ve just installed it and can’t say how stable it is yet. There are a few new features. For example, you can tag messages with different categories (Important, Later, etc.), there are custom folder display options, saved searches, and viewed message history, along with improved security.

They aren’t making it an automatic upgrade for another week or two, maybe to get a better understanding of stability, but if you want to be an early adopter, now’s the time.

If you do download it, you will find that junk mail options are in different locations now and may have to be reset, though I think it retains your learned statistics. Look under Tools, Options, Privacy, Junk for some options, and Tools, Accounts, Junk for each account for other options.

    I was thinking of trying the beta but never did. I did just install this on my Linux machine. I’ll let you know if it does anything funny.
