[news=http://news.google.com/news?imgefp=7NctiGScKW4J&imgurl=www.gameshout.com/news/012006/images/012006_2547.jpg]Mozilla released on Thursday its updated e-mail application, Thunderbird 1.5, which is designed to deliver improved security and functionality.
Thunderbird 1.5, which can be downloaded for free, has been retooled to offer improvements in four main areas: updates, security, RSS and podcasting.
"Thunderbird enhances the overall e-mail experience, adding antiphishing capabilities to help keep people safer, while also integrating and simplifying access to new technologies, such as RSS," Christopher Beard, Mozilla's vice president of products, said in a statement.
The e-mail client also features automated updates, designed to download security and product upgrades to people's systems and then to prompt them when ready for installation.
In another effort to bolster security, Thunderbird 1.5 is designed to push e-mail through a finer spam filter. Last fall, Mozilla released an update for its Thunderbird 1.0.7 that plugged several security holes.
