I just found this article. A little old, maybe things have changed, but is this true?

I like thunderbird but it needs "minimise to tray icon" built-in. The 3rd party extensions don't work well, i get notifications of new gmail emails just after i have already read then when i minimise sometimes as the extensions are buggy.

If they gave me this then it would be perfect. The other problem is that you can't check your hotmail more frequently than every 15mins due to microsoft changing their protocol and not letting mozilla into it's details i believe.

I'm not too worried. If they let it die, it will be forked into something else. That's the beauty of open source software.

How many accounts can you have in the free version? I'm unable to find that information anywhere on their website.

It will be around for some more time, a few months I hope. I don't want to go back to Outlook 2010.

Seems so. I guess they don't have enough funding to continue spending money and resources on Thunderbird, despite its popularity.

I literally just found a copy of Outlook 2007 and I was looking to move over until my copy of Outlook 2010 arrives. For the past year I have been using Thunderbird and immediately I found awkward issues in Outlook 2007.

1: The signature setup is interesting, I have the company logo hosted externally and it seems to increase the size and pixal-ate.

2: The default "from" address is the same no matter what PST you are working with.

3: You cannot automatically BCC

[u]These are all standard features within Thunderbird.[/u]

Wrong, the free version is restricted to 2 accounts. That renders it entirely useless for me, I have 5 accounts I need to watch over. I'm not sure if I can justify spending $50/year to keep this software up to date, as nice as it looks :/

Why use thunderbird when Windows (live) Mail looks, better, works better, and just is better.
