Thunderbird 1.5 released

Mozilla has released , the latest version of its full-featured free email client. Thunderbird offers intelligent spam filters and customizable views, as well as RSS (really simple syndication) integration. A new software update mechanism offers streamlined, automatic updates which are handled in the background and notify users when they are ready for installation. A built-in "phishing" detector helps protect users against email scams by flagging suspicious messages, and Thunderbird's support for RSS allows users to receive feed updates as email messages, filtering and organizing these updates as ordinary email. Version 1.5 also allows users to access podcasts via a dialog box that provides access to a "helper" application, such as a Web browser or audio player. Thunderbird 1.5 is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
