Thunderbird 56.0 Beta 2
Mozilla Thunderbird makes e-mailing safer, faster, and easier with features such as intelligent spam filters, a built-in RSS reader, and quick search. Thunderbird was designed to prevent viruses and to stop junk mail.
Thunderbird includes tabbed e-mail, new search tools and indexing, smart folders, support for Firefox, a simplified setup wizard and robust junk protections that include phishing and spam filters.
Key Features Include:
- Tabbed email.
- An Archive feature similar to the one found in GMail.
- Lightning fast search.
- Smart folders.
Thunderbird has junk mail tools that have been updated to stay ahead of spam and features anti-phishing protection.
An option under "Tools > Options, Advanced, General" now allows to select whether date/time display will follow the application locale (adjusted by operating system's format settings for that locale) or the locale selected in the operating system's regional settings. In other words, an US English Thunderbird can use, for example, German formats.
IMAP: When after sending a message storing that sent message fails, the message can now be stored in a local folder.
When messages are composed in paragraph format, "body text" and split mail quotes are converted to paragraphs when pressing the enter key.
Thunderbird now uses the latest Mozilla technology based on Rust for encoding messages.
Various improvements in the Thunderbird themes on all platforms, especially for Windows 10.
Unwanted inline images shown in rogue SPAM messages.
Contacts sidebar: Selection and context menu behavior.
Deleting message from the POP3 server not working when maildir storage was used.
Message disposition flag (replied / forwarded) lost when reply or forwarded message was stored as draft and draft was sent later.
Inline images not scaled to fit when printing.
Selected text from another message sometimes included in a reply.
No authorization prompt displayed when inserting image into email body although image URL requires authentication.
Blank lines removed from plain text replies under some circumstances.
Large attachments taking a long time to open under some circumstances.
