Thunderbird 2 offers easy ways to manage and organize your email with message tags, advanced folder views, message history navigation, find as you type, and improved new mail alert notifications. Thunderbird 2 also includes a refreshed user interface and support for Microsoft Vista.

    I was so looking forward to TB2, but upon installation, the menus in TB2 don’t work, i.e. when I click the word FILE, EDIT, etc, the word is visually-depressed, but the menu does not pop down.

    Q. generally, how many weeks/months after a major milestone release would we expect to see the first dot-release?

    The Bugzilla team clarified that the fault was due to the theme I was using. When TB2 runs in safe mode, without the theme, there is no problem. Hence, you could delete this and the above post if you like.
