Mozilla keeps Eudora alive, releases new version based on Thunderbird

,----[ Quote ]
| The Eudora team might have called it quits on commercial aspirations and 
| released the product as open source some time ago, but that doesn't mean you 
| should get the trash bin out just yet.   



Giving Microsoft The Bird

,----[ Quote ]
| I used to be the biggest evangelist of Microsoft. All other software was 
| inferior.  
| [...]
| I have been a huge Outlook user since the early days of Outlook Express. 
| [...]
| The most immediate thing I’ve noticed is speed. It loads immediately, and 
| responds immediately. And that is with all of my Outlook data in-tact! After 
| I migrated my data I went to town with the extensions. I’ve listed them all 
| below, as I found some really cool ones. My favorites are the Lightning/GCal 
| add-on and the QuickFolders.    



Praying That Eudora Has an Afterlife

,----[ Quote ]
| Hope is not lost, as Qualcomm released the software to open-source
| volunteers to use and improve. Eudora might again thrive by sharing
| code and features with Thunderbird, an E-mail program being
| developed at the open-source Mozilla project.


Eudora e-mail client to go open source

,----[ Quote ]
| Qualcomm on Wednesday announced plans to release future versions of
| its Eudora e-mail client software as open source. The company is
| collaborating with The Mozilla Foundation to base the next version of
| Eudora on Mozilla?s Thunderbird e-mail software.


The future of Lightning... after the Thunderbird announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| We'd like to state publicly that we will continue to work on our two products 
| Lightning and Sunbird in the foreseeable future and that we still envision 
| great things for Lightning and Thunderbird. We are currently hard at work for 
| our next release 0.7 (coming this fall) and are starting the planning work 
| for the following releases 0.9 and 1.0.    


[Thunderbird] Comunity reports back!

,----[ Quote ]
| This report was compiled from hundreds of comments, ideas and suggestions 
| made to various web blogs, wikis and mailing lists, due to the recent Email 
| call to action by Mitchell Baker. It aims to provide an overview of the 
| information we found important, ordered by feasibility and relevance...   


Reviewing Features of Mozilla Thunderbird 2

,----[ Quote ]
| In case it's not obvious, extensions are basically software utility
| add-ons of varying complexity, while themes are user interface styles
| that can somewhat dramatically change the look of the application.
| Mozilla installs a single extension in Thunderbird by default-for
| error reporting-and a single, default user interface theme. I
| find the default Thunderbird theme to be pleasing and in keeping 
| with the standard Firefox look and feel.


First look: Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0

,----[ Quote ]
| The one e-mail client that seems to still be on the rise is the
| open-source Mozilla Thunderbird, which recently hit Version 2.0.
| While it hasn't changed radically, the new release includes several
| new features, most notably for organizing and finding messages.
| In this review, we'll assess which additions are useful and
| which are fluff.


Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Though it's likely that I'll move back to Outlook full-time at some
| point (I still use it for calendaring, actually), I have to admit
| that I had intended to use Thunderbird for about a month and then
| move on, but it's proven usable and efficient. Thunderbird is an
| excellent and high-quality email solution, and while I'm guessing
| that many of the people who read this site haven't really given it
| a shot, my advice is to do so, especially if you can't get your
| hands on Outlook 2007. Thunderbird is quite a bit better than
| Windows Mail or Outlook Express, and while many Web-based email
| services have improved with Ajax/Web 2.0-based interfaces, users
| who have to manage a lot of email will be better off with a true
| email application.


Thunderbird 2 Flies Ahead, Racing Web Mail

,----[ Quote ]
| To a certain degree, Mozilla's Thunderbird could be a victim of
| the success of its browser sibling. As next-generation browsers
| like Firefox have become better at supporting highly interactive
| GUIs for browser-based applications, managing e-mail strictly
| through a Web interface has become much less of a chore, and,
| for some people, has even replaced desktop mail clients as thef
| irst choice for dealing with e-mail.
