Hi,
 
I got curious so I installed Thunderbird 45.8 about 2 hours ago.  It’s a very interesting email client.  And, that’s saying a lot for me because I hate change.
 
So far, it downloads large amounts of messages with out a hicup.  It can also handle deleting one thousand emails with out choking.  I wish WLM had received more attention from MS.
 
However, I do have a few questions.  I’ll probably figure out around half of them but:
 
1.  Can I rearange the message headers?  For example, I prefer “unread” to be anounced right up front if possible.
 
2.  Is there a key stroke to get Jaws to anounce which message you are on in 45.8?  For example, message 22 of 100.
 
3.  How do I get TB to open up at the InBox instead of the home page.
 
Thanks to all, especially Randy who stuck with me for several days.

Hi Randy,
 
Well, after I took a look at the link that I posted , I discovered that I couldn’t make heads nor tails out of the stupid thing.  So, I downloaded TB V38.3 from the link that you posted.
 
Later this afternoon, I will try to figure out if I understand how to completely delete all of my current TB files.  If so, I will go for the new TB install.
 
I appreciate all of your time and effort,
 
James B

Randy, thanks for looking.
 
I just found a ThunderbirdFTTP site where all prior versions are listed.
 
I saw on a list some where that TB 45.8 was a good choice for a Jaws17 user.  I’m curious to know what you think about that.
 
Here’s the link.

This is a safe download. I have got files here before.

V38 is the only version I could find that wasn't a Alpha or Beta.
