#3 Reorganize those preferences panels

I think thunderbird could use some addressing of how its user interfaces are laid out. It seems a bit confusing to have a "Composition" option in the Accounts section, AND in the Options panel. They shoudl somehow be consolidated. I could see how a new user would have tons of trouble trying to figure out how to change the default font on their emails (obscurely placed under HTML options--some novices may not even know what HTML means--they might think it has something to do with webpages), and immediately have to look in a completely different location to figure out how to make their messages appear above the reply as opposed to below the reply. Not that I'm indicating that these should be account-for-account settings, but I think this could use some major reorganization.
