Mozilla Thunderbird -- New Download

2 posts in this topic

I've been using Thunderbird for quite awhile.

It's an older version (1.5) but it still works great.

I'm tempted to download the latest version of Thunderbird. My problem is I

don't know what's going to happen if I download the latest version.

1. What's going to happen with my current version ?

2. What's going to happen with mail currently saved in various folders

in my current version.

3. My profile -- will it be transferred

All the above, plus other concerns, keep me from downloading the

current Thunderbird version.

I really can't find a good tutorial on the subject.

If anyone has had the experience of downloading a new version of Thunderbird

I'd appricate your tips and pitfalls I may encounter.

Version 3.x and higher included indexing for faster message searching. I found that Thunderbird became slow after that, and that's when I switched to Outlook 2003. I never looked back. So I never ran past the last Thunderbird 2.x revision ( or something like that). I loved Thunderbird up until that point.

In all honesty though, I find even that Outlook is superior especially in terms of speed. Thunderbird as you know it somewhat lives on in the Seamonkey mail client.
