Moving to Thunderbird

Get Thunderbird!These days I am testing how it is to use Thunderbird for mail. So far I am just finding my way through it, so I am probably missing most of the functionality.

However, the junk mail filter seems to work very well with very little training, and the Thunderbird-Tray mini-app was easy to install and really helpful to put Thunderbird out of the way withouth closing it completely.

There are some more “minimize Thunderbird to tray” applications at Minimize to system tray (Thunderbird) - MozillaZine Knowledge Base, but the MinimizeToTray extension listed there did not work with the newest version of Thunderbird. A pity, as I would rather use an extension than an external app.

So far, it is been a pleasure to migrate (from Outlook). But I am still in the honeymoon period, so I will let you know how it goes.
