Microsoft Entourage Engineer Recommends Mozilla Thunderbird for IMAP

In this blog entry, he discuss IMAP support in Entourage (which he and Mike Fullerton and Steve Friesen designed), Outlook and other clients. He rates Thunderbird 'B+', saying, 'Thunderbird is an almost perfect IMAP client for Windows. If you use IMAP, this is the product for you.' I've been using the Mozilla-based mail implementations with IMAP, since... well, forever, and couldn't agree more in what he says." The post contains a few mistakes, such as stating that Thunderbird supports the IDLE command when it does not (bug 141369).

I've checked in support for the IMAP Idle command, <> - it can be disabled on a per-server basis by setting the server pref "use_idle" to false. This will be in tomorrow's nightly trunk builds. Please let me know if there are any problems.
