What’s New

  • NEW
    Filelink: Upload your files to an online storage service and send links to your friends, avoiding bounce back due to large attachments. We have partnered with YouSendIt to bring this feature, but additional partners will be added in the near future.
  • NEW
    In partnership with Gandi and Hover, you can now sign up for a personalized email address from within Thunderbird. Along with your new email address, Thunderbird will be automatically set up and ready to send and receive messages. We are working with additional suppliers to cover more areas of the world and to provide more options in the future.
  • FIXED
    Various security fixes
  • CHANGED
    The minimum system requirements for Windows are now Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later.

Known Issues

  • Unresolved
    If you are unable to view content for your RSS feeds in the Wide View Layout, you can switch to Classic View, or you may need to disable the Lightning Calendar add-on. In both cases, you'll need to restart Thunderbird (see 531397).
