Tabs in Thunderbird – Status Update #3

Following my "Tabs in Thunderbird – Status Update #2" post back in end-June 07, it is to be noted that the tab functionality enabled then was for the trunk builds.

The good news for users of branch builds such as the latest Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 is that Myk Melez has just ported over his tab functionality patch over from the 1.5 builds to 2.0 builds. Builds for Windows, Linux & Mac OS X are available over @ his blog.

Myk adds that "To open a message in a tab, context-click it and select ‘Open message in new tab’ from the context menu. To make this the default behavior when opening messages, set Preferences > Advanced > General > ‘Open new messages in’ to ‘A new message tab’."
