Better Mozilla / Thunderbird email client support

:shock:
There are a lot of mozilla and Thunderbird email client users. It would be great to have the contact list searched, and have the email opened in X1- like it does for OUTLOOK.

Hi,

I've just used X1 v5.5 Beta3 and indexed files from Thunderbird v1.5 RC2 (imagine... a beta interacting with another beta...)


Good News:
1. X1 indexing Thunderbird email files seem to be just as fast as Outlook.

2. You can drag and drop files (attachments) into both Thunderbird and MS Outlook emails.


Bad News:
A) X1 does Real Time Indexing with MS Outlook, but Thunderbird emails are only scanned periodically and not in real time.

B) Using above X1 & TB beta versions, you *cannot* open Thunderbird emails from X1.
ie: in X1, you cannot Open/Reply/Reply_All/Forward any Thunderbird emails; you must go back to Thunderbird program to do this!
ie: On the plus side, you can go to [Attachments_Tab] and send the Thunderbird email attachment by email directly in X1.



As an aside, my comments on Thunderbird as per:
http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?t=2061

Hope this helps!

Good job on email, not on Contacts!

Yes, X1 does a pretty good job finding email in Thunderbird!

I just wish it could search the contacts as well.

:(
