Thunderbird Portable

Modified autorun.inf file

Submitted by jrh on December 16, 2005 - 2:38pm

I modified the autorun.inf file provided to include "Launch Portable Thunderbird" in the list of programs that XP displays in the autorun window. It's one less click you have to make to run PTB!

action=Launch Portable Thunderbird

Can PTB still read RSS?

I just started using Portable Thunderbird 1.5 and I love it. There are, obviously, a few quirks, but that's to be expected.

One, for instance, is that it doesn't seem to read RSS. It wont download the any new articles headers for some reason.

It this a known issue with all the portable Thunderbirds?

TB1.5 RC1 Checks for Default Mail Client

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on December 14, 2005 - 8:17am

Am I the first person to have a problem with Portable TB? Is it that good?

On the support page, you say that you have made modifications so that Tb doesn't check if it is the default mail client. I am using Portable Tb1.5 RC1, and everytime I run it in this library, I get asked if I want to set TB to be the default client....

Anyone else have this problem?
