Saddened that support for Thunderbird 3 remains off the table
SpamSieve has been a good, old friend for years. I’ve recommended it to many clients (along with Thunderbird). Many of those clients understood when I recommended against updating to beta packages.
But T-bird has grown up a bit with version 3, and it’s been out quite a while. I have a choice: I can tell clients that they need to stay with a version that is quite long in the tooth now so they can keep using SpamSieve (or buy licenses if their offices expand in the future), or they will have to give it up to use the more current Thunderbird.
Surprisingly, most question WHY they should stay with T-bird v2. They look at me askance if I suggest SpamSieve is the only remaining reason. They ask if I recommend tools that don’t keep up with current shipping products or that they should stay with technology now deprecated to the dust bin. It’s difficult to argue with that.
SpamSieve will need to continue to evolve to stay relevant. I hope someday, it does.
