Mozilla has released an update for the Thunderbird mail client. Version 68.4.1 promises significant improvements in interaction with a Microsoft Exchange server. If IMAP/SMTP is available, Thunderbird now also offers this function. In addition, available Office 365 accounts are now recognized independently.
The update removes a number of bugs and closes known security vulnerabilities. You can find out more about the bug fixes of version 68.4.1 in the changelog on the official website. Thunderbird 68 is available for free download for Windows, macOS and Linux.
Already in Thunderbird 60 the look of the program was polished up properly. Since then, the browser has been able to deal with web extension themes. In the current version 68, Mozilla now completely converts the mail client to this type of theme. In addition, the separate options window disappears in the new version, the settings move to the tabs.
Similar to Firefox, Thunderbird supports extensions and converts them completely to web extensions. XUL-based extensions are no longer compatible with Thunderbird since version 60 and are deactivated by default. This made several popular add-ons incompatible with the mail client. According to the official release notes, version 68 is only compatible with add-ons that have been adapted by the developers.
In addition to numerous changes and improvements, Thunderbird version 68 has some new features. All folders of an account can now be marked as read and filters can be executed at specified intervals. In addition, an individual language for spell checking can now be selected in the chat for each conversation.
Users can download the new version from UpdateStar or from the official website.
