New build of IceApe-UXP for XP!

  1. Hi. Do you have installers for MailNews and Basilisk/Serpent?

    Potentially dumb question: Is MailNews safe for daily, modern emails? Just thought it might be a few security fixes behind.


    1. I have no intention on creating installers.

      and in security view, MailNews should be fine for everyday use.

    2. No problem. That sounds good, MailNews runs faster than the current Thunderbird. Can I use both on later Windows with no problems?

    3. sure, they have different path for storing profile.
