While Mozilla doesn't devote nearly as many resources to their Thunderbird email client as they do to Firefox and there isn't as many high-profile releases for this project in a while, Thunderbird adoption continues to climb.

Kent James of Mozilla wrote a new post on their blog yesterday about the number of Active Daily Installations for Thunderbird. He shows that Thunderbird's adoption continues to grow and the Thunderbird maximum ADI per month is reaching ten million. The country using Thunderbird the most is Germany followed by Japan, the United States, France, Italy, and Russia.

Kent also reiterated that the Mozilla Thunderbird 38 release is planned to debut in May and they'll be releasing emails about that next big update soon. More details via the Mozilla Thunderbird Blog.

I continue to use Mozilla Thunderbird as my default email and RSS client. What about you? Share your Linux e-mail software preferences by commenting on this article.
