couple of weeks ago and I decided to upgrade my Thunderbird 1.5 on Vista
Very seamless experience, I downloaded, installed and now running without any
glitch! All address book and filters automatically imported.
entire list of features but my favorite ones are:
- Message History Navigation - Like browser, it now maintains a history of
messages (both forward and backward) viewed.
- Improved Search -
Find as you type pane makes search more effective.
- Automated Update - Automatically checks to see if an update is
available, download and install.
- Stay Informed - Provide more informative and relevant message alerts
containing sender, subject and message text for newly arrived messages.
If you are using Firefox
then you are already familiar with most of the above features but it's nice to
see a consistent set of features in products coming out of
Mozilla Foundation. And probably these
features are available as
for Thunderbird 1.5 but I never looked around. Feel free to drop a comment on
this blog if you know of an interesting add-on.
