Thunderbird is a very respected MUA.  There's a big group of people
who don't feel comfortable writing mails from mutt (or the like), and

We are not talking about developers, we are talking about anyone who
needs to send a mail to a mailing-list and get a reply.

Also, it's not like we are discussing about mailers for a propietary
