Under the Hood of Mozilla's Thunderbird E-Mail Client, Beta 2
Mozilla recently released Thunderbird 3 Beta 2, another stop along the road to the release of the Thunderbird 3 open source e-mail client. Thunderbird handles HTML mail well, lets you keep images turned off until you want them to load, has good protocols for dealing with spam, a decent search engine, and allows the user to specify manual checks of individual mail accounts (handy if you have many accounts configured). Our friends over at TheAppleBlog have a look at the second beta--check it out. Also check into our favorite add-ons for Thunderbird.
