    Default Mozilla Thunderbird Compatability

    Is there any plan to add compatability to Thunderbird for the jumk mail and phishing protection? I've never used Outlook because of security issues, and it would be nice of the Zone Alarm Security Suite offered its full email features for other clients.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    Default Re: Mozilla Thunderbird Compatability

    MailFrontier(which is the software ZA licences its antispam filter from) works based on the Outlook plugin system and not Thunderbird's extension system. That is why it does not work on Thunderbird.

    Whether there will be a Thunderbird support will depend on MailFrontier. Most antispam companies don't see the need the need to support Thunderbird as Thunderbird has an in-built spam filter and since Thunderbird is open-source, that means any extension developed for Thunderbird has to remain open-source which is something companies are not eager to do because people can see their code and they don't earn money.
