Thunderbird 2.0 has been released

thunderbird.pngMozilla has just released Thunderbird 2.0 – sweet!

If you’re not familiar with Thunderbird, it’s the best open source email application out there. In fact, I would say it is the best email application out there.

Don’t worry about your OS, Thunderbird is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Some of the new features:

  • Advanced folder views
  • Message tagging
  • Saved searches
  • Built-in support for retrieving email from Gmail and .Mac (all you have to do is enter your username/password)
  • Updated junk mail/spam filter
  • Updated theme and user interface
  • Better Windows Vista support

FYI, a lot of people must be downloading Thunderbird 2.0 as I write this post because the download speed is very slow – like 5kb/sec slow. 😦
