Dear experts,

Is anyone aware of how we can use the Mozilla Thunderbird email client together with TM9?

I'd like to find out if it is possible to TM Connect Email from the Thunderbird email client and have an alternative to using MS Outlook as our office email client.

There's a TM Save available for Mozilla's Firefox so I'm thinking there must be something either available or in the works for Thunderbird.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

The only email link is with Outlook. I believe this has something to do with Outlook being being full mapi compliant and the other programs are not.

Do we know for certain TM saving Outlook email requires MAPI?  Even if it does, I would think/hope some sharp cookie could figure out an annon to Thunderbird that would TM save email in a manner similar to TM saving a web page which doesn't require MAPI.

If I find out more I'll post.

This is doable but Lexis will most likely have to do the coding for it.

Portions of TM Connect may be possible to replicate by purchasing the Time Matters DataLink API and re-developing the add-in product specifically for TBird.
