Hi all,

I'm getting a nagging message on Thunderbird telling me to upgrade to the
latest version as the one I'm using will soon no longer be supported. I've
downloaded the tarball for 11.01 from Mozilla but I am filled with
foreboding. Is it safe to install this over the top of my existing
Thunderbird installation or am I likely to trash something and/or lose all
my mail?

Might it be safer to leave things alone until I decide to upgrade my entire
system? I'm using Ubuntu 10.4.

Cheers,

Graham

Maybe, but I've been sticking with 10.04 because I haven't been happy with the way Ubuntu seems to be going. I expect at some point I'll have to make a change but at the moment, I'm checking out alternatives in Virtualbox.
