Mozilla’s Thunderbird has hit the net today with version 1.5 of its popular free email client. I used Thunderbird for about six months as my mail client and was pretty pleased with it to be honest, though in saying that, I still haven’t used it in six months given my use of Microsoft Outlook in work. Might just be tempted to give it a test drive.
“Thunderbird enhances the overall e-mail experience, adding antiphishing capabilities to help keep people safer, while also integrating and simplifying access to new technologies, such as RSS,” Christopher Beard, Mozilla’s vice president of products, said in a statement.
Thunderbird 1.5 also aims to bolster its RSS support by letting people receive feed updates as e-mail messages. People can now access podcasts through a dialog box, which is tied to an application such as a Web browser or audio player.
