Props to the CR team for Icedove 3.1.11
Just a quick note to thank all involved with the Icedove 3.1.11 package in the community repository.
I am running Mepis 11 (Kernel: 2.6.36-1-mepis64-smp x86_64 (64 bit, gcc: 4.4.5) ).
I have previously run Thunderbird on a variety of machines and while I do like the Mozilla concept of an email client, I have to say in the past I have been disappointed in the speed retrieving searches and in my inability to move profiles from one machine to another easily. I also like the concept of an unbranded client, so I have been trying Icedove on and off over the years with different degrees of success.
Both of those issues are in my rearview window
now for my work notebook. Finally - it just works
I'm still too chicken to use Lightning as I won't forgive the move from Thunderbird 1.x to 2.x or 2.x to 3.x ( in which I lost the calendar completely ) and will stick with Iceowl until I can backup perfectly in case of a mistransfer of data.
Probably will have to develop a better understanding of the components there first.
Thanks again for all your efforts
