      This may be of use to those of you who maintain and support Thunderbird in your enterprise. The project appears to be open to community development, though.

      I hate to see this happen. Thunderbird was a great alternative mail/news client in Windows. Looks like they'll be doing ESR support like they do with "old" Firefox builds.

       

      Since many manage Thunderbird in Patch Manager, I thought this would be of interest.

       

      Thanks!
