Ok Im interested in the whole new seperation of items thing rather than having a big mess. I use Phoenix aka Firebird as my default browser and I am interested in trying Thunderbird. I was wondering what do you guys consider as the best build for me to try out?

well there's not much to choose from yet:
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird

if on Windows, download 2003-04-16-win32.zip, if on Mac or Linux, download the available builds for this platform :)
<i>Latest Firefox Trunk & Thunderbird 1.0</i>

cdn

AFAIK, Hotmail isn't using any known protocol such as POP3 or IMAP so it can't be supported in Thunderbird without reverse-engineering the Outlook module.

Still there seems to be some workarounds, see <a href="http://www.mozillazine.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9357">this thread</a>.

I wonder if the dev team could get permission to include one of the workarounds from another open source project into the main program.

I don't think we can put things in that are licensed solely under the GPL, like HOtmailPopper and YahooPops are (I'm not really sure about that though). So we would have to get a volunteer to do it (only if the devs approve of course), and it would require a lot of maintenance I think.
