Of course the CentOS version has Thunderbird!  I'm using it on K12LTSP 
5EL right now to write this very email.  Evolution is installed by 
default, true, but T-Bird is most definitely in the Yum repositories.  
Here's the proof from my own K12LTSP 5EL server.

  [microman at takhisis ~]$ rpm -q thunderbird
  [microman at takhisis ~]$

Just do a "yum install thunderbird", and you will be a happy ranchero.  :-)

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate 
antivirus protection!
