Mozilla Thunderbird 2, the latest version of the free open source email client, is available worldwide today.
Thunderbird 2 allows users to manage and organize email with tags, advanced folder views, and fast inbox and message searches. Users can also customize Thunderbird 2 with add-ons that match individual preferences.
Geena Trapani of Lifehacker says ” …the beauty of the open source Thunderbird email client is its extensibility. Sure we love our web-based email like Gmail, but Thunderbird is the ultimate open source desktop email app. Its pluggable interface lets developers freely build extensions to make it ever more useful. And ever more useful do a few key extensions make it.”
