I love Thunderbird, and I think it really is the best mail client out there!  I
especially like the multi-account support,  but there is a small problem I often
run into when I'm writing an email, the "sent" field in a new mail defaults to
the the account that is linked to that last mail folder that I was viewing.
Consequently, if I happen to be viewing jokes from my <goofyguy@yahoo.com>
account, and realize that I need to send an important email to my boss and I
assume that I'm using my company account. So I write my quick report, and click
"send".  The next day I get an email from my boss telling me that he didn't
think that was funny, and to pack my things..
See what I'm getting at? :)  there should be a default "send as" option in
Thunderbird Account Manager.  That would save a lot of embarrassment!
