Thunderbird is a free, open source, cross-platform email, news, and chat client developed by Mozilla and modeled after Mozilla Firefox. And just like Firefox, versions releases incorporated security patches to fix vulnerabilities.

Thunderbird is an email, newsgroup, news feed, and chat (XMPP, IRC, Twitter) client...Thunderbird can manage multiple email, newsgroup, and news feed accounts and supports multiple identities within accounts.

SeaMonkey is a free, open source,  cross-platform Internet suite.

SeaMonkey consists of a web browser (SeaMonkey Navigator), which is a descendant of the Netscape family, an e-mail and news client program (SeaMonkey Mail & Newsgroups, which shares code with Mozilla Thunderbird), an HTML editor (SeaMonkey Composer) and an IRC client (ChatZilla).


Since I've never used either, I have no personal experience comparing them. A simple Google search should provide all that information.
