Thunderbird 2 was released yesterday. Have any of you early adopters (TPH?) got any comments? Had any issues?

Can't say I've ever needed a mail application on my PC, I use gmail and am more than happy with it's web-based interface.

I suppose I could load it on my machine at work and see if I can set it up to work with our Exchange server Wink

New versions of things are always good though Laughing out loud

Sometimes good sometimes

Sometimes good sometimes not.

Often updates are simply to try and keep peoples interests or to appear to be innovative when in actual fact they introduce little that is actually needed and often change the nature of the interface you were used to and happy with for no good reason.

I've just updated (no thanks to the auto updater!) Manual download and overwrite seems fine , lots of icons have changed , annoying stuff though in the removal of the 'get new mail' on right click of accounts in the left side folder pane which was nice and simple, one click on the account I wished to check now I have to ensure it's selected then hit main panel 'get mail' or menu on top bar it seems like a two process operation instead of one.

Message threading is annoying as it keeps scrambling the display order I like descending by date latest to last, message threading just seemed to keep junking that.

Tagging function ala google quite useful probably.

Hate the way when performing actions such as moving emails around focus just jumps all over the place o you need to keep scrolling back to where you were, or at least trying to find where you were.

Is this a ground breaking update? likely not but then again maybe things are fixed under the hood that aren't apparent, and as for features I may have not come across them all in the short space of time so far
