Thunderbird + Camino? Anyone? Bueller?

Now that Thunderbird is "a go" as a project, I was thinking that it would be nice if someone made a Mac OSX specific version, just like Camino.

Does anyone know if this has been attempted? Started? Thought about?

Hopefully someone takes this project up, Camino is (in my opinion) back on top as the premier OS X browser and I'd love the same team to tackle an OS X Thunderbird implementation.

You mean like this? It's cool. Acording to the strategy doc OS X will also be getting an official Mozilla Firebird so as to keep XUL support for the platform etc.

Nick, FYI Mozilla Firebird is the browser, Mozilla Thunderbird is the Mail/News App.

I doubt it. First of all the Camino folks probably don't have time and I don't want them to compromise Camino for it.

Also, there are plenty of good mail clients on OS X already.

How about a thunderbird osx version?

I just installed the latest Thunderbird + Firebird, and I already see the drawbacks compared to the old Mozilla integrated approach. When I click on a link in a TBird email, Firebird doesn't open. Now, that is exactly the kind of integration problems I anticipated. Ouch!

Not really sure what you mean, if it is a mac os x version of thunderbird, you can download it from (still dubbed as Minotaur).
