French Ministry of Agriculture Switches to Mozilla Mail

Thursday September 11th, 2003

Hervé, Bruno and Pierre from the French MozillaZine write: "The MozillaZine-FR staff are pleased to announce that the French Ministry of Agriculture has chosen Mozilla Mail for replacing Netscape Messenger 4.7. Outlook and Netscape 7 have been considered, but Mozilla has been preferred for its immunity to viruses and its licensing model. Tests have been run this Summer and Mozilla will be deployed in Q3 on every machine at the Ministry offices." MozillaZine-FR has a French article about the switch.

It's great to hear that governments are starting to adopt Mozilla Mail over Outlook (Out of curiosity, are we talking Thunderbird? Or Mozilla Suite?)

But when it comes to the French Government... I think they're going to have to provide their own translation, thanks to their insistence on using 'courriel' instead of 'e-mail' ( see: <…s/0,12597,1002708,00.html> )
