    I tend to use the installer over top of the current installation in lieu of the internal update but that's a personal preference.

    On the OT - most folks that I'm moving over from XP to Win 7 or Win 8, I'm recommending T-Bird as it looks and feels like Outlook Express but better.

    Is that the Sent Folder of an e-mail service adress like Gmail?

    Thunderbird has been discontinued beyond security fixes, stability/bug squashing, isn't that correct? I read they were/are/have discontinued any major updating for it from 2012 forward. http://techcrunch.com/2012/07/06/so-thats-it-for-thunderbird/

    I now use Postbox, it's an actively developed, and exceptionally good Thunderbird fork that gets regular updates.

    Also TheBat! since it's speedy, feature rich, and has full on-the-fly message/database encryption.

    And you have to pay for both of them, so they are not an alternative for Thunderbird.

    Reminding again this is not Mozilla support and please don't assume everyone accepts private messages from everyone.

    Since you obviously dewll a considerable
    portion of your time at places like this
    you must apply the same rules the rest of us
    apply in the real world

    I sympathise

    Just don't feel a lesser man
    for being less physical

    The only good email clients these days, are paid ones. I'm sorry if you have to spend $9 for a developed, improved, and stable fork of a dead project. That's the price of a hamburger, I think you can handle it. Thunderbird is an undeveloped buggy pile of trash IMO, I'd gladly pay $9 for someone to fix/finish/polish it - which Outbox folks have.

    Baseless affirmation. Again...

    The question is: do I want to spend any amount of money when I can use some excellent free programs (Thunderbird included, even though I know it is not perfect)?

    Post removed. Let's try to keep things civil and stay focused on the topic.
