Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

I wanted to install Thunderbird, since it is highly recommended in this forum.

 

However, when I did a search in this forum, I noted some have problem running Thunderbird properly.

 

Currently I'm using Outlook Express, my plan is to install T/Bird & remove OE for good.

 

Instructions appreciated.

Installing TB shouldn't be any real problem, but to remove OE is some kind of a pain, and I just left mine rather then doing it. I wish there was a program that would do it for you.

This works like a dream, even if it is the Thunderbird 1.0.5 Nightly build.

 

Uncheck Outlook Express from Add/Remove Components in Add/Remove Programs.

In winXP that does not work. You can also uncheck IE but we all know it doesn't remove it either. It will remove the shortcuts but the program is still on your PC. In fact you can delete the folder outlook express and it will reappear with outlook express still there or it won't let you delete it at all.
