Thunderbird 1.0 Reaches 1,000,000 Downloads in Just 10 Days!

What an amazing year we're having. First the phenomenal successes for Firefox, and now it's Thunderbird taking the world by storm! In just ten short days, Thunderbird 1.0 has been downloaded over 1,000,000 times -- and in 21 languages!!

There is no doubt that this is our most successful e-mail application release ever and we're not alone in thinking that. Steve Segal, in his Tribune Review article Mozilla outfoxes Microsoft raves, "it's the first free e-mail client that should give Outlook a run for its money and is one of the best first versions of a program I've ever seen. I have no plan to switch back to Outlook, as I'm so pleased with the Mozilla software."

With your help, we're going to see millions more reclaiming their inboxes. Thanks, everyone, and keep spreading the word.

--Asa, on behalf of the Thunderbird team and the SFX admins

Even if the dowloads were 10,000,000 it still isn't up to par.

..it still isn't up to par.

I like it. T-Bird doesn't have all the bells and whistles that OE and others have, but then again, it's just an e-mail program, not a clown.

To each his own but the only place I've had a problem with Thunderbird is in its ability to remember already read messages (which is a problem with Netscape mail also). Up to the par of which course are you talking?

Gotcha, but if they make Night Train or Ripple free, we'll beat that in a heart beat!
