[LUG] Thunderbird for spam control


My wife has her own laptop and insists on using XP because that was on
the machine when she bought it. Oh well, what can I do?

She gets a lot of spam mail, of course, and I want to get it sorted for
her. However I just cannot get on with Outlook Express ( what a terrible

I know that Thunderbird is available for Windows, and I am used to that
program. I would like to suggest installing the Windows version of TB
for her and then helping with the spam.

Is this a good idea? Is it easy to download and install on XP. I haven't
used Windows for years, so I am a bit worried about messing things up.
Would any particular version be best?

Any help appreciated thanks,
