Mozilla 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. 😦
