Yea well, but I'm still addicted to the suite, cut me some slack ;P

One little bugger I forgot to mention earlier (compliments of OE again):

bug ??? - RFE: MailNews: Can't change between HTML and plain text on message compose

Also, I'd suggest changing the default behavior of:

IMAP account settings -> Server Settings -> Advanced -> Maximum number of server connections to cache

from 5 to 1, because over high latency link (like 250+ ms) it may give the initial impression of TB/MN as sluggish with IMAP.

I bet there's a historic reason for having the default 5.
