Takes a bit of getting used to but that's true of most new things

It sounds like these changes might also affect MS Office Outlook going forward:
Outlook.com is moving to Office 365!

Here is a Thunderbird forum thread about the WLM/Outlook change:
Will this change by Microsoft effect Thunderbird as well? ? mozillaZine Forums

I would imagine any change in office outlook would depend on what servers you're using,
I use hostmonster so I doubt I'll see any changes especially since I do not connect in any way to outlook.com.

I agree, you should be ok.
I have MS email accounts and use the MS IMAP servers and Office Outlook connector.
I think i'll get hit with changes, for Outlook 2010 and WLM 2012

Well I'm a bit confused. Any response to these questions would be very useful.
1) I'm running LiveMail 2011 (not 2012). I also don't have Outlook. Should I run the patch?
2) If I try out Thunderbird can I run both it and LiveMail?
3) How would I transfer/copy my LiveMail content to Thunderbird?

Ideally I'd like to have Thunderbird mirroring LiveMail so if LiveMail bites the dust I'm ok. Tricky questions but any comments would be helpful.

You should not need the patch if you are not using one of the Microsoft email systems mentioned in the email. As for running live mail and thunderbird in parallel, that is not only possible but good practice, this is simple if you can use the IMAP protocol as this is designed to sync between multiple clients. The transfer is quite straightforward you save the mails to eml format from live mail and import into thunderbird

Phew that a long post from my phone

If you are still limited to pop3 then it can be done by setting one client as master and one as a read only and set to leave mails on the server you would use the master day to day and just update the read only as required based on your usage.

1) If you don't have any MS email accounts (Outlook.com, Hotmail, MSN, Live) i wouldn't apply this patch.
2) I can use both Thunderbird and WLM on the same OS without issues or conflicts.
3) I only use these Email clients on my test box, and with email accounts where i don't need to keep any emails.
So i never transferred from WLM to Thunderbird.
I use IMAP and never needed to transfer, emails show up in both client programs, no problem.
If you use POP you might need to transfer saved emails.

I also don't have Outlook
Outlook has so many different meanings now, that makes it more confusing, such as
Office Outlook client program, Outlook.com email address, Outlook web site, ...

I am reliant on Hotmail as my email address.

Thanks for the advice so far.
