The Mozilla Foundation announced today that its Mozilla Messaging mail subsidiary has begun operations. The initial focus will be on the development of Thunderbird 3 which the company said will deliver significant improvements including integrated calendaring, better search and enhancements to the overall user experience.
Thunderbird is a free open source email application used by millions around the world and is built using the same open source development model as the Firefox web browser. Mozilla Messaging is staffed by a small product development team which will work as part of a community of contributors from around the world. "We are excited to renew the focus of our open source community on the future of Thunderbird," said David Ascher, chief executive at Mozilla Messaging.
