@todd should we maybe rebrand it as well?

P.S. we need to check PureOS against that list.

Is icedove dead? if so, we may be looking at PureMail...

Yea, Debian changed it from Icedove to Thunderbird so we sync'ed that in. I guess good time for PureMail, adding @francois so he is aware we will need some artwork.

mak lowered the priority of this task from "Unbreak Now!" to "High".Aug 19 2017, 5:02 AM
