Version History of Thunderbird 0.8
- Global Inbox: POP3 users can now combine all of their POP3 accounts into a single global inbox under local folders.
- Comprehensive Data Migration: Switching to Thunderbird has never been easier since Thunderbird can now migrate all of your e-mail data including settings, mail folders and address book data from common mail applications such as the Mozilla 1.x Suite, Outlook Express, Outlook and Eudora.
- RSS Integration: Thunderbird now features a built in RSS reader which allows you to easily subscribe to and read news and weblogs that support RSS.
- Improved Privacy Controls: In order to help protect your privacy, Thunderbird now automatically blocks remote image requests in e-mails from senders you don't know.

- If your network uses proxy authentication for HTTP, Thunderbird now correctly prompts for proxy authentication instead of silently failing.
- Bug fixes too numerous to mention!
