Thunderbird(messaging, open source)
A complete free, open-source e-mail client from the Mozilla Foundation and therefore a true code descendent of the e-mail code in Netscape Navigator. The first non-beta release was in late 2004. The Firefox web browser is from the same source.

Thunderbird(1) A full-featured email client that comes with Linux and is also available for Windows and Mac. Thunderbird provides unique features including a Saved Search feature that provides a virtual mailbox based on specific search criteria. For example, all mail from a particular person can be in a Saved Search folder although the physical messages are stored in several other mailboxes.
Like its Firefox Web browser counterpart, Thunderbird also supports "extensions," which are plug-ins that enhance the program. For more information, visit www.mozilla.org. See Firefox and Penelope.
