Re: Thunderbird will become a webbased application - What about accessibility?
I've been making the same point for awhile. Some people still use Outlook Express. People still use Windows Live Mail.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
E-mail is not the way malware or malicious content is generally spread now. The interest is in human engineering, getting people to think an e-mail is from a trusted source and taking actions such as going to fraudulent and malicious web sites or opening attachments. Another way is malicious web sites or hacking advertising on web sites, reputable or not.
Also, I don't recall ever seeing, on lists like this I've followed since about 1998, one report of someone being directly infected by opening an e-mail.

Why does anyone need to use the very latest version of Thunderbird, if
an older one still works just fine?
This is a ridiculous example, but I held on to Eudora 7 for almost a
decade, and only switched to Thunderbird in the past year. Why? Because
it still worked under Windows 10.
Perhaps that won't be possible this time around, but other than security
concerns, or the way email works being changed in a fundamental way, I
can't see much changing in how we create, send, and receive email any
time soon. Email is very very old.
