There's one question which is critically important and hasn't been 
answered yet:

How long will Mozilla, using paid staff, maintain Thunderbird? 
"maintain" meaning:

  * Releases: security updates, and every few months a release from
    trunk (new features)
  * Fix breakage caused by Mozilla platform changes
  * Fix important bugs

? How many years? As long as there are more than half a million users? *

* (And please don't hide Thunderbird project and download links or 
similar - as already does, unfortunately).
