"Mozilla released Thunderbird 2 today, a major update to its free, open source email client. Thunderbird 2 offers easy ways to manage and organize your email with message tags, advanced folder views, message history navigation, find as you type, and improved new mail alert notifications. Thunderbird 2 also includes support for Microsoft Vista and an updated user interface.
Thunderbird 2 is immediately available for Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems in over 35 languages as a free download..."
I just installed 2.0 over 1.5 without any problem, the update should not touch your profile.....but I did back it up, just in case.
Just click on the green button in the link jgweed has provided, then allow the installer to download to your desktop.
Make sure Thunderbird is not running, Back up your current profile (just to be safe), and then run the installer. All your settings and mail should still be there.
