If you've been avoiding Thunderbird 3 because you prefer not to roll with beta or RC code, we have good news. The latest version of Mozilla's open source email client has gone gold and is ready for download.
Mozilla touts its latest email client as faster, more flexible, and more secure than previous generations, and it's also more robust. Thunderbird 3 brings tabbed email to the table, as well as a new search interface with filtering and timeline tools.
Other features include the ability to archive old email, better management of multiple email accounts with Smart Folders, an integrated add-ons manager, and a new look and feel with lightweight skins available.
