During the course of the next seven days, four hundred users in eleven countries will get the Mozilla Thunderbird MUA installed on their respective workstations, desktops, notebooks or whatever. That will simply be a silent installation of Thunderbird, no questions asked. It wouldn’t really be worth mentioning if it weren’t for the fact that some of those countries have absolutely lousy Internet connectivity. Anyone remember the days of 2400bd modems? Well: think “worse”.
The actual configuration of all necessary user-settings in Thunderbird as well as creation of a profile for it will take place a bit later on. This will be equally easy, as I’ve created a customized installer which takes care of all that. It has already been well tested by twenty five people, and it will be put to good use on the night of the 18th through the 19th of February. That date is code-named big bang ;-)
Now it is time for me to put my feet up for a bit.
