Thunderbird 64.0 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.
ADD-ON SUPPORT: Restartless add-ons continue to work if their authors have made the necessary minor adjustments. Non-restartless legacy add-ons using XUL overlays are only supported if add-on authors have adapted them, and Lightning/Calendar is the only one we know that has been adapted.
Changed UI when installing add-ons. Restart required for legacy extensions.
Calendar: UI improvements for event dialog.

According to RFC 4616 and RFC 5721, passwords containing non-ASCII characters are encoded using UTF-8 which can lead to problems with non-compliant providers, for example office365.com.
