"Thunderbird 1.5 introduces several new features including a software update system, spell check as you type, built in phishing detector, auto save as draft, and support for deleting attachments from email messages. Message filtering has also been improved with new filter actions for replying and forwarding. Saved search folders can now search folders across multiple accounts."
"I wanted to thank everyone in the mozillaZine community who helped test the alphas, the betas, and the release candidates that went into this release. Thank you for trusting Thunderbird with your email throughout the development and release cycle for 1.5. I'm looking forward to working with all of you on 2.0 and beyond!"
After a hard day at work, nothing like popping open a nice, cold can of wine.
Been using Firefox and Thunderbird two years now. Just upgraded latest versions of both last week. Love 'em.
I've been using it since the release candidates. It's pretty good, and the phishing detector works well. It false-positived some legit emails, but there's a button to say the email's okay, and it learns from that just like the junk filter.
That alone may convince me to switch over. I have tons of emails that have attachments (in Outlook Express) that I want to keep the emails but delete the attachments (since I have the saved elsewhere anyway). It amazes me that MS never added this feature to OE.
The major thing is moving all those emails over to Thunderbird ....
Thanks for posting this.
Everytime I hear the word "Thunderbird" I get a headache.
"Have you heard? What's the word? It's 'Thunderbird.'"
You're joking right? Micro$oft is so far behind in it's feature sets it is ridiculous. It is only after every other browser (or mail client) includes something that they get around to adding it.
Well alright, perhaps. But it seems to me to be such a no-brainer needed feature that yes, it does amaze me. But then perhaps it shouldn't.
Wot's the Word? Thunderbird!
Want a thrill? Drink it chilled.
Wot's the price? Thirty twice.
Who drinks the most? [redacted].
Folks should really get away from MS-Outlook in any case. It's a virus/worm magnet.
I think you're right. In fact, I tried it several months ago and it seemed to work fine. However, the attachments problem was still there, so I didn't switch over.
Looks like it's now time, though.
Been using Thuderbird for at least a year maybe more. Will probably upgrade at some point - maybe not right away but soon. Thanks.
Piece of garbage. Uninstalled it and went back to Thunderbird 1.06.
They need to do a little more prep before they release these updates. i went through too much nonsense with FF 1.5.
