    I downloaded the update to Thunderbird and was reminded of one of the limitations to opensource software. I use the “Send Later” add-on to schedule the delivery of bible readings that we send out via e-mail everyday. However, that add-on has not been updated for Thunderbird 3.0, so it was disabled. To keep using it, I had to re-install the previous version of Thunderbird. Here’s a link that told me how to do that: http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/go_back_to_2_0.
