News and Discussion
- In 'tb-enterprise' ADMINISTRATORS can learn what other administrators are doing, and you can help fellow administrators. (see message archive for past discussions)
- In Planet Thunderbird are Thunderbird team's various blogs. Links to contributors blogs can be found in the right sidebar of the home page if you want to avoid the Planet Mozilla "firehose"!
- At Thunderbird wiki you can find information on all aspects of Thunderbird
To get notices of progress as the bugs are fixed, and as new bugs are added, you should subscribe (Cc) to the meta bug. A meta bug is not for 'work' or discussion. Development of solutions occurs in the bugs which are linked to the meta.
If you want to submit an enterprise related bug, please add "enterprise" bugs to the meta so that they get proper attention, after carefully reading the criteria for blocking , .

We have gathered some articles specific to enterprise needs:
- Thunderbird in the Enterprise - DEVMO documents
- Account Autoconfig
- Software_Update and Software_Update:Testing
- http://kb.mozillazine.org/Thunderbird_3.0_installation_issues (some of these issues are mitigated in version 3.1)
We are by definition a collaborative, open source project since inception, therefore solution providers are more than welcome to look at our code and make solutions we would not have developed. We don't have any certification process in place, but you will find a non exhaustive list of solution providers that can complete and/or facilitate your enterprise deployment.
