    Default Mozilla releases Thunderbird 3

    You can download it at; Thunderbird - It's All Yours



    This version looks and feels much more complete and professional than previous versions. I've run the beta for a while and for anyone using Windows mail, Live mail or Outlook I'd say give it a try, unless you are connecting to an exchange server.

    Features:
    Tabbed Email: Provides the ability view individual emails and folders in tabs, and web pages via add-ons in tabs so users can quickly jump between them, just as one manages web pages in Mozilla's Firefox. Folder tabs are remembered, so Thunderbird starts up pre-configured and personalized to each user.

    Filtered Search: Designed with search in mind, the new search interface in Thunderbird 3 contains filtering and timeline tools to help users quickly and accurately pin-point the exact email by word matches, correspondents or even attachment types at the moment they need it, all based on analysis of the user's own emails.

    Message Archive: Archiving mail moves email from the inbox into the new archive folder system, de-cluttering the inbox while at the same time enabling users to find email months or years from now.

    One-click Address Book: A very quick and easy way to add people to an address book, by simply clicking on the star icon in the messages received from new correspondents.

    New Mail Account Setup Wizard: Getting started with Thunderbird 3 is faster than ever with the new account set-up wizard that requires simple information, like email addresses and passwords to get going instead of a user's IMAP, SMTP, SSL/TLS settings.

    Smart Folders: Combines individual mailboxes to help manage multiple email accounts in one spot. For example, by selecting the Inbox, users can view all the incoming emails from all their different accounts without having to go to each email account separately.

    Add-ons Manager: The new add-ons manager can help users find, download, and install hundreds of add-ons enabling them to customize Thunderbird 3 and add functionality or change the appearance.

    Better Integration with Gmail: Now integrates with international versions of Gmail and Gmail's special folders such as sent and trash.

    Better Integration with Windows and Mac OS X: Updated look and feel, improved import tools, search integration, and address book support for Windows 7, Vista and Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

    Gecko 1.9.1 Engine: The same Web page rendering engine and graphics infrastructure used in Firefox, provides the latest Web Standards support and security enhancements.

    Automated Updates: Thunderbird's update system notifies users when a security update is available and automates the download and installation process to keep users safe.

    Thanks for the news, but I'll stick with live mail and Outlook. I used to use thunderbird, but was so dissappointed with it that I stopped using it. At least i know with Live mail what I am getting and that I can use it either, because there are sometimes when I need to use Outlook rather than Live Mail.

    Cool beans Seti. Personally I find Thunderbird 3 superior to both in many ways, but whatever floats your boat...

    I looked at it. But it just doesn't fit for what I need. Not that its bad just way to much social media stuff that I won't use. It feels really bloated again and that's saying something for Outlook But it's nice to see MS putting the focus back on Outlook, of all the apps in the new office it is certainly getting the lions share of changes.

    I have heard a lot about Thunderbird but never really got down to trying it since WinMail /WinLiveMail satisfied my very basic needs. But the tabbed email feature and some others look interesting enough, to want me to check it out now.

    FreePops application connects your hotmail account with the mozilla thunderbird email program, so you can access and read hotmail through thunderbird

    1. Install and run FreePOPs. This gives you access to the POP3 protocol.

    2. Open the Mozilla Thunderbird email program. Click Tools in the Thunderbird Options menu. Select Account Settings from the drop-down menu

    3. Choose Add Account and designate Email Account as the type of account to add to Thunderbird. Click Continue.

    4. Enter your name in the Your Name field. Plug in your hotmail address in the email Address field and click Continue.

    5. Select POP in the Select the Type of Incoming Server You Are Using field. Type "localhost" in the incoming server field.

    6. Designate your hotmail account to use a separate inbox or for it to appear in Local Folders. Click Continue.

    7. Type your hotmail address in the Incoming User Name field and click Continue. Click Done.

    8. Go to Server Settings in the account named after your Hotmail address. Type "2000" in the Port field.

    Marcuspeio,

    You do know that Hotmail now has POP access, right??

    Servers -

    Incoming: POP3.live.com
    Outgoing: SMTP.live.com

    Great, I've always loved Thundrebird.
    Version 3 IMHO is an impressive work, expecially some features like the new very powerful search interface.
