Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3 Released

Wednesday October 15th, 2003

The third release of Mozilla Thunderbird, the standalone mail and newsgroups client, is now available. Thunderbird 0.3 features better attachment handling, performance improvements (particularly for IMAP users), support for placing your signature above the quoted message text if you prefer to top-post, and a new POP account option to remove read messages from the server after x days.

Mozilla Thunderbird is based on Mozilla 1.5 and can be downloaded from the Thunderbird 0.3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org. The Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3 Release Notes have more details and mozilla.org's new Thunderbird page contains more general information about the program.


#21 PROBLEMS CONFIGURING THUNDERBIRD FOR IMAP

Hi Guys, thought I'd try out Thunderbird. Looks good, liked the easy install, only one problem. How do I conficure IMAP for use with webmail?

I have looked at a couple of FAQ sites that assume you're using Mozilla --iI thought they'd be similar, but How to I get my Password into Thunderbird? When I try and connect to my webmail provider the connection times out. I'm guessing that without a password not much will happen.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers
