    Is there a way to make Windows recognise it as a mail client in the start menu?

    At the moment mine gives me the option of MSN Explorer, Hotmail and Outlook Express.

    I know I can just create a shortcut and pin it, but can you do it this way?

    Set it as your default mail client in Internet Options ?
    (if that doesn't appear, then open thunderbird, open the options and tick the option to make it the default client.. then see if its listed)

    I did miss it :)

    One thing, is there a way to import messages from outlook into thunderbird?

    As you may have guessed, i'm REALLY pissed at microsoft applications at the moment, mainly IE, OE and Messenger so i'm finding alternatives

    Yep, it's quite easy to migrate all your emails/contacts from Outlook or OE. TBird is awesome :)
