I could create a new folder called 'Outbox' and make it the default unsent 
folder with user_pref("mail.default_sendlater_uri", Outbox);
but 'Unsent Messages' folder will be recreated every time I start Thunderbird.

if we take this, we'll probably also have to change:

Scott, I believe your change to
http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/mailnews/import/public/nsIImportMail.idl#127
may have broken the import of unsent message folders from Outlook, OE & Eudora.

I can't test these as I don't have a windows box available to me. However
looking at the code I believe we rely on the "Unsent Messages" to be that for
the profile handling (see links below), the messenger.properties is just front
end display.

Apologies in advance if I am wrong, but please let us know either way.

Thanks.

yeah your right, we don't want that extra change like I thought we did. I just
backed it out.
