Hi Mark,

Like the others who have already replied, I would like to thank you for
your excellent contributions to Thunderbird over the years.

I would also like to thank you for sending this message - I realize it
might not have been easy - in time so that this change can be taken into
account for our governance discussions in Toronto today.
