Many use Thunderbird instead of Evolution. They should have an equally beautiful experience. I'll attach a screenshot.

The solution used in Unity-3D Dash is not to scale bitmap icons above their original size.

As Paul said, Unity (3D) does not scale up any icon (see screenshot). Unity 2D could use the same approach.

Moreover, Thunderbird should provide big icons (as Firefox does), doesn't it? Maybe a Thunderbird's bug too?

@Paul, Marco: thanks for the tip. This is indeed an acceptable fallback solution. The real issue though is that thunderbird doesn’t provide an icon with a decently large size. The same issue can be observed when e.g. launching thunderbird from gnome-do.

We'll use a larger icon in the 3.3 packaging for oneiric, but this isn't going to change in the 3.1 packaging for natty

This bug was fixed in the package thunderbird - 5.0~b1+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu1

thunderbird (5.0~b1+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream release from the miramar channel (THUNDERBIRD_5_0b1_BUILD2)
    - Fixes LP: #766022

  * Switch to comm-miramar
    - update debain/mozclient/thunderbird.conf
  * Update globalmenu-extension to 1.6
  * Align packaging with firefox:
    - rename debian/apport/blacklist => debian/apport/thunderbird.in
    - rename debian/control => debian/control.in
    - rename debian/thunderbird-dev.install =>
    - rename debian/thunderbird-gnome-support.install =>
    - rename debian/thunderbird.desktop => debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
    - rename debian/thunderbird.install => debian/thunderbird.install.in
    - rename debian/thunderbird.manpages => debian/thunderbird.manpages.in
    - update debian/apport/thunderbird.in
    - update debian/control.in
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/thunderbird.sh.in
    - update debian/thunderbird.xml.in
    - update debian/thunderbird-dev.install.in
    - update debian/thunderbird-gnome-support.install
    - update debian/thunderbird.desktop.in
    - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
    - update debian/thunderbird.manpages
    - added debian/thunderbird-dev.links.in
    - added debian/thunderbird-globalmenu.dirs.in
    - added debian/thunderbird-mozsymbols.install.in
    - added debian/thunderbird.dirs.in
    - added debian/thunderbird.links.in
    - added debian/thunderbird.lintian-overrides.in
  * Build language packs directly from the thunderbird source
    + Include compare-locales FIREFOX_5_0b1_BUILD1 from
      http://hg.mozilla.org/build/compare-locales. It's needed for merging
      en-US strings with incomplete locales
    + Pull l10n data in to tarball from bzr
      - update debian/mozclient/thunderbird.conf
    + Configure build for creating language packs by configuring with
      - update debian/mozconfig.in
    + Store the list of locales to ship, and provide a way of automatically
      generating that list and the control file entries from the upstream
      source. Also provide a way to blacklist languages. We map languages
      to package names using langpack-o-matic (and also get descriptions
      from there too)
      - update debian/rules
      - add debian/locales.shipped
      - add debian/control.langpacks
      - add debian/control.langpacks.unavail
      - update debian/control
      - add debian/locales.unavailable
      - add debian/refresh-supported-locales.pl
    + Add common-build-indep hook to build the translation xpi's
      - update debian/rules
    + Add common-binary-post-install-indep to install the xpi's in to the correct
        debian packages
      - update debian/rules
      - add debian/get-xpi-id.py
    + When rebuilding debian/control in the clean target, fail the build
      if the control file was out-of-date. This ensures that we don't
      accidentally drop language packs, and forces me to maintain an
      up-to-date control file in bzr
      - update d...

  * debian/control:
    - unity-2d-places and unity-2d-spread do not depend on unity-2d-launcher.
      All they need is now in libunity-2d-private0.
