Log Message:
Updated thunderbird-bin to 0.4.

Major changes since 0.3:

* Improved Look

The default theme for Mozilla Thunderbird has taken a huge leap
forward. The theme is about 90% complete with only a few "classic"
looking icons remaining.

The message list pane now shows status for reply, forward and unread
as icons directly on the message envelope instead of using text.

The message list pane now has a separate sortable column for
attachment status on a message.

The Windows animated alert has a new look and feel. It now shows the
Account name instead of your server user name.

* Improved Interoperability With the OS

Linux: Thunderbird properly dispatches browser URLs to the default
browser. Read more about how to hook this up.

Mac OS X: Added a Windows menu which makes it easier to manage open
Thunderbird windows. The menu bar behaves correctly after closing all
open windows. Mozilla Firebird and Thunderbird can be run at the same
time with out the two builds interfering with URL dispatching between

Windows: Thunderbird can be set as the default mail client and/or as
the default news client.

* New Features

Windows users can copy and paste images (including screen shots) from
the Windows clipboard into HTML mail compose.

Only mark a message as read when it has been open in the preview pane
for a configurable number of seconds.

More options for customizing toolbars the way you want them.
Enchancements include: a mark button in the main mail window and
copy/cut/paste icons in mail compose.

Profile Migration from Netscape 4.x has seen a lot of improvements.

A Palm Sync Address book conduit extension is now available for
Thunderbird 0.4.

POP Accounts now support aging on the server.

* Recently Fixed Bugs

No more new mail alert notifications when the incoming messages are

The progress bar now appears in the mail 3-pane window when reporting
progress for operations like downloading new mail or a message body.

Auto Proxy URLs now work.

POP Accounts: "Click here to download the rest of the message" now

POP Accounts: A new filter action to delete a message from POP3 server
if messages are left on the server by default.

Junk Folder Purging works on all accounts and not just the first one.

If you configure a mail server to use secure authentication but the
server does not support it, Thunderbird no longer silently falls back
to insecure authentication. Thunderbird brings up an error dialog and
refuse to connect to the server.

News error dialogs no longer hang the application.

HTML Anchors in messages work.

When threads are sorted by date, Thunderbird sorts by the newest
message in the thread.
