I'd liek to have a summary page that opens when thunderbird starts. The current
"list of features" page is completely useless. I'm thinking of a sortof "global
inbox" but for all accounts (including IMAP) showing all your new mail and what
account/folder it came from... 

I figure the first thing most people do when they open their mail client is go
down their accounts looking at the mail in each. Having a central location would
give purpose to having filters that set priorities on incoming mail as well...
why not just have a slider next to the search box for 'priority' etc. to allow
instant filtering.

Outlook's feature that allows you to see a snippet of the email before your open
it is nice as well.

Also, would be nice if you could reorder accounts in the left hand panel, i
think they're alphabetical at the moment.

Brainstorm over ;-)

In fact... you could generalise the idea to letting the user add a "Pseudo
account"... eg. let people set filters on a *view* of their other accounts, eg.
i could have a pseudo account that showed all messages in all acounts that are
marked as urgent for example.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
