Mozilla Messaging

The initial focus for Mozilla Messaging is the development of Thunderbird 3, which will deliver significant improvements, notably integrated calendaring, better search and enhancements to the overall user experience.  Thunderbird is a free, open source email application that is used by millions of people around the world and is built using the same open source development model as the award-winning Mozilla Firefox Web browser.

Mozilla Messaging has staffed a small product development team who will
work as part of a community of contributors from around the world.

“We’re excited to renew the focus of our open source community on the
future of Thunderbird,” said David Ascher, CEO, Mozilla Messaging. “Every
one of us is committed to building a great email product that people will
love to use and that serves as the foundation for choice in a critical area
of Internet software.”

Mozilla Messaging is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Mozilla Foundation. The board of directors consists of David Ascher, CEO, Mozilla Messaging; Christopher Beard, VP and General Manager, Mozilla Labs; and Marten Mickos, CEO of open source database vendor MySQL AB.

“Thunderbird email is a vital part of the Mozilla project which brings
freedom to hundreds of millions of internet users worldwide,” said Marten
Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB. “By joining the board of Mozilla Messaging, I hope to help the world communicate better.”
