It provided e-mail, calendaring and instant messaging. It could be used for personal or office use to access email, calendar information and various instant messaging (or chat) accounts. The integrated instant messenger could connect to GTalk, Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ, XMPP and various other servers and protocols. It had a dashboard that provided gadgets for showing information such as new emails, schedule for the day and many more. iGoogle gadgets could also be added to the dashboard.

Discontinued

Development and support for Spicebird has been discontinued and users are invited to migrate to Thunderbird.
