Thunderbird 1.0

Mozilla have released version 1.0 of their email client Thunderbird.

Featuring a global inbox, message grouping, saved search folders, comprehensive data migration, RSS integration, improved privacy controls and improved quick search, it seems it’s ripe enough to remplace Outlook on many a computer.

I have just started testing this release.
And even though I installed and tested previous versions too, I never switched to Thunderbird because even though I could easily import my outlook emails into it, they were imported without their attachments which held me back from moving to it.
Obviously this has been solved with this version.

Other than that, every release was getting better and better, and when they first introduced the global inbox, I felt it had everything needed for an email client.

What I love most about Thunderbird though is it’s logo / icon. It’s beautiful. Very catchy.
