Along with Ubuntu 7.04, Mozilla released Thunderbird 2.0 today. Thunderbird is Mozilla’s cross-platform e-mail client, and with the Lightning add-on, a full personal information manager (PIM).

If you prefer free software, or you don’t need a full-featured client like Outlook, give Thunderbird a try. I’ve been playing with it, and it really is a pretty sweet program. With a little monkey-wrenching, it is definitely good enough for a solo or small firm to use for managing e-mail, contacts, and calendaring. With custom contact fields and instant search capabilities, in some ways Thunderbird may be more flexible and workable for law offices, actually.
