Re: Replacement for Thunderbird
Thunderbird isn't being discontinued. It will continue to be maintained and receive bug fixes and security fixes. They just won't be spending time and resources adding new features (what new feature do you really need that isn't in Thunderbird?), and they won't be pushing out a new version of Thunderbird every time they push out a new Firefox (which seems like every other week now).
Oh, did I mention that Thunderbird is an open source project? Mozilla could quit working on it completely (which is NOT what they are doing) and Thunderbird would still live as the community could just take it up and continue.
