Is there a way to open yahoo, hotmail and facebook together in an outlook style application? Like pidgin handles now all my messaging, I'd like another application to handle all my emails from one application.
Thuderbird 13, now in Alfa, supports Facebook messaging, but no Wall or other advanced features. All versions of Thuderbird support Hotmail or Yahoo.
There is a small article about it in OMG!Ubuntu.
You can install it from the mozilla-daily ppa:
But note that this can also upgrade your firefox and that they are daily builds and can be very unstable. Do not install them on production mahines.
