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.
