I'm running Thunderbird 3.0 Beta from Fedora 11, and it's got one new feature that I really like. If you select multiple messages at once, the “message body” view will show a kind of summary of them.
So, you can select a thread (for example with Ctrl-Shift-A), or all messages in your inbox (Ctrl-A), and see this summary view. Then you can either delete them all, or click on a message (either in the body view or the subject list) and view that specific message.
Thunderbird 3.0 also has tabs added to it now, but I just haven't gotten used to them or found a use for them….comments powered by Disqus
