    I'm glad to see some progress on TB3 but geez, releasing an Alpha to the pulblic? That's like driving a car with the lugnuts loose. "Eh, they might come off, they might not."

    Thunderbird and Outlook arent even in the same class of programs. That's like saying, "sorry guys, you can play with photoshop all you want, I'm happy with paint.

    Outlook 2007 brings fear and loathing every time i'm confronted with it as have to support it at work . Not a day goes by I don't receive a call concerning Outlook2007. I hope Mozzila brings Thunderbird up to be a competitor to Outlook forcing Microsoft to get there act together just like how Firefox forced Microsoft to move on from IE6.

    Lets hope a addin comes along so I can use my hotmail account with thunderbird just like I use my exchange mailbox with outlook.

    Hopefully they get the calender right as the Lightning extension sometimes goes a lil bonkers. I am downloading it now and have a look around.
