Just in case you haven’t heard this elsewhere, Copernic has released a new version of their excellent Desktop Search toolbar that. among other things,
fully supports Mozilla Thunderbird, including indexing of Thunderbird emails, attachments, and contacts. Also announced was support for indexing Eudora emails and attachments and many exciting new features based on feedback from a wide variety of users.
More details here. I’ve always liked Copernic, and it’s good to see they’re really going for it in what is now a crowded marketplace. As their press release puts it,
once again, Copernic, a small business, is beating the big powerhouses – Google, Microsoft – to the punch with this newest version of CDS. There has been talk that Google has plans to announce support for Mozilla Thunderbird very soon, but this newest version of CDS makes Copernic the first vendor to support both Firefox and Thunderbird.
CDS works with Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP and Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. It’s probably churlish of me but I’d still like to see the interface make better use of empty space. When you’re searching thousands of documents the difference between seeing 20 matches and 30 is a sizeable one. But this is a minor quibble in a great program.
