I've been using the beta for a while. I can't honestly say I like it a lot better than the 2.x series as they've had a lot more time to mature. However, some of the new features are useful. Some will likethe more unified inbox a lot.
If you're using Lightning, you need to install a nightly build to get it to work with TB3.

I may have to try it. With win 7 and no email I tried the beta and had trouble downloading and sending my email so I switch to Opera and used the same setting and no problems.

Thanks for the heads up! Haven’t received the prompt yet to upgrade. Thunderbird rocks.

I’ll give v3 a shot. What I really want is a Eudora clone. TB2 wasn’t it. It pretended to be.

Does it still lose your mail database with every update?
I used the beta, and am happy to report that my addons work just fine, with the exception of Lightening. To that end, I installed an addon that creates a button in TBird that calls up Sunbird, and I’ve gotten used to that.
I absolutely like the ability the unify the inbox.

The new search takes some getting used to, and some learning.
As for the Tabs, since I’ve been using the betas, I’m used to them, and I really don’t want to be without them, they’re that useful.

Downloaded it last night. Installed fine, everything worked. Will have to play with it more as time goes on.
If you need an email client this one is very good and free.
