Marketing Updates

  • Press Tour Update - Completed press tour in Paris, Munich, and Tokyo. Everything going very smoothly. Had a great press conference in Tokyo with over 35 reporters with an additional 6 more interviews later in the week. Mozilla Japan has a very strong marketing team. Press has been very receptive to Thunderbird 3, all the new features, and the future ahead for our team.
  • Will be wrapping up press tour this week in New York and on the West Coast.

IT update


Done / Cleared

In Progress



  1. Top 5 GS Thunderbird 2 Support Topics (code in progress: ) basically the same as last week, possible McAfee false alarm
    1. Cannot send email (Verizon blocking port 25 starting fall 2009, AT&T percent sign in outgoing email due to wrong setting from AT&T support ?!?)
    2. Cannot receive email
    3. migration to Vista and Windows 7 - it works well for some not so well for others, most just need settings and migration help, be great if MozBackup or something like it was built-in
    4. McAfee finds trojan - probably false alarm, roland to follow up with Carsten and Sam
    5. email lost (fixed by compacting folders and deleting .msf)
  2. Thunderbird 3 Beta Top Support Issues (not many reported, starting to monitor to see what we can improve for post 3.0)
    1. Windows 7
  3. SUMO for MoMo tracker ticket:, TB3 Global Database KB - 1st article from JenZed, thanks! - should have 1st iteration of MoMo SUMO theme by end of week from contractor Gary Cunningham-Lee who did the original SUMO theme
  4. Key Support stats from the following graphic:
    1. approximately 26 / day (180/7, higher than last week if we subtract the Raindrop topics - not sure why)
    2. total new topics:180 total replies: 69 (Ruby Code)
      1. date:20091027 #new support topics:23 resolved:9
      2. date:20091028 #new support topics:24 resolved:8
      3. date:20091029 #new support topics:32 resolved:9
      4. date:20091030 #new support topics:25 resolved:7
      5. date:20091031 #new support topics:17 resolved:4
      6. date:20091101 #new support topics:9 resolved:0
      7. date:20091102 #new support topics:20 resolved:9
    3. #replies from non MoMo folks: 3 from TMZ (thanks!) 14 from gyurrika (thanks!), 2 from Thomas (thanks!) MoMo folks: 2 from Philipp of Lightning (thanks!) 43 from Roland, 2 from Andreas (thanks!), Bienvenu 8 (thanks!)
    4. happiness metric: API doesn't have happiness emotitags, asked GS staff about that, code in progress:, manual happiness metric = 69 - 43 = 26 (50 last week), 56 Hendrix messages (generally Hendrix messages are unhappy but this week we had 2 happy messages from Thunderbird lovers, 1 wanted us to run our own email service! Thanks!) - bug to track down Hendrix for Thunderbird 3 and get rid of it as much as possible
