But, the next you’re gonna use Thunderbird 91’s new account setup wizard, you should know that it supports detection of CalDAV calendars, email signatures, the ability to connect to an address book during setup to make it easier to import your contacts, as well as to setup encryption.
In additon to the new account setup wizard, Thunderbird 91 also major and highly anticipated new features like support for importing and exporting Thunderbird profiles, the ability to encrypt mail to BCC recipients, Quick Find in the multi-message view, and the ability to suggest replacements for discontinued or incompatible add-ons.
There are also visual improvements to the calendar display, the message compose window, and the message reader UI. On top of that, Thunderbird 91 will ship with undo and redo support for event and task creation and deletion, as well as per-calendar and global notification settings.
