Mozilla Minotaur Project Formally Launched
Monday March 24th, 2003
In a newsgroup posting, Scott MacGregor has formally announced the launch of Minotaur, a project to create a stand-alone mail client based on the Mozilla suite's Mail & Newsgroups component. While Minotaur will have largely the same feature set as Mail & Newsgroups, it will sport a simpler and more customizable user interface, much like the Phoenix redesign of the Mozilla browser. The revitalised Minotaur project combines the work of both the original Minotaur effort — which aimed to build a stand-alone version of Mail & Newsgroups — with that of Thunderbird, an enterprise intended to create a mail client to accompany Phoenix.
Thank you. I have been enjoying Phoenix for a while now, but couldn't drop the official Mozilla because of Mail, soon I should be able to. I'm glad they still have the whole Mozilla with everything in it, but I never use Chatzilla since it doesn't support IM, and I never use Composer.
Does anyone know.. will Minotaur include Address book? It seems that an address book is a big feature in a mail client, but Mozilla uses it like a seperate component.
Thanks again! I can't wait to try it out when it becomes available.
