I have been using Thunderbird 2 for more than 2 years now, I recently upgraded to Thunderbird 3 and found it very well designed. Here is what I liked:
- Has an attachment reminder, so if you write “please see the attached… ” and then forgot to attach, it reminds you. Neat!
- Tabbed emails. Used to tabbed browsing? welcome to tabbed email. Allows you to open emails and mail folders into different tabs.
- Powerful search. You can type a search string, and it will find that string in inbox, sent box, subject. This is quite useful if you are looking for something but don’t know where it could be.
- It also has smart folders and and archive folders.
- Addon manager to manage all your addons.
Ubuntu 10.04 scheduled to be released on April 29,2010 already bundles Thunderbird 3.
For Ubuntu 9.10, there are ready packages available. To Install Thunderbird 3 on Ubuntu 9.10 read this documentation on how to add the repository.
