Mozilla Messaging (abbreviated MoMo) was a wholly owned, for-profit subsidiary of the non-profit Mozilla Foundation. It was broadly tasked with aspects of the Mozilla Project that focused on interpersonal communications, such as instant messaging and e-mail. Its main focus was developing Mozilla Thunderbird, the e-mail client developed by the Mozilla Foundation.
It was spun off from the Mozilla project in 2007; on 4 April 2011, it was merged into the Mozilla Labs group of the Mozilla Corporation.

Thunderbird is developed, tested, translated and supported by the folks at Mozilla Messaging and by a group of dedicated volunteers. Mozilla Messaging ("MoMo" for short) is a sister project to the for-profit Mozilla Corporation, the folks who make the Firefox browser. Both are wholly owned subsidiaries of the non-profit Mozilla Foundation.
