New Thunderbird release: Simplify your email experience!

Mozilla, a global, nonprofit organization dedicated to making the Web better, today released new versions of Mozilla Thunderbird, its free and open source email application, available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

If you’ve ever dreamt of having a personalized email address (such as “kirk@chezkirk.net” or “dad@thesmithfamily.com”) for you, your family or your business, Thunderbird has made it simple! In partnership with Gandi and Hover, we’ve made it possible to sign up for a new email address directly from within Thunderbird. Along with your personalized email address, Thunderbird will be automatically set up and ready to send and receive messages.

Our two partners are based Europe and North America respectively. Anyone can sign up with either company, but if you want a specific country domain (such as “.us” or “.com”), select the provider in your geographic area. We are working with additional suppliers to cover more areas of the world and to provide more options in future.

But we are really pleased to announce more: we have added completely new options for large files sharing! You can now speed up the transfer of large documents by uploading them to an online storage provider and sharing the link instead of sending the file directly as a message attachment. Improve the speed of sending email and avoid message rejection if the recipient’s server disallows large files. As an added bonus, you’ll also save space in your sent folder and the recipient’s inbox.

Rather than embedding attachments in your message, Thunderbird Filelink uploads the file to your private online storage account and inserts a link to the file in your message. The recipient can then click on the link and download the file. YouSendIt is our launch partner but additional partners will be added in the near future.

Reminder: The Thunderbird 3.1.x series and earlier versions are no longer supported and therefore are becoming more exposed to Internet security threats. We recommend that all Thunderbird users of previous versions upgrade to the latest release as soon as possible.

To get the latest versions of Thunderbird for Windows, Mac or Linux download Thunderbird from http://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird/all.html or go into the About dialog to check your latest version.
