It would be nice if a tab could be 'locked' such that it cannot be switched to display a different mailbox. It is currently all to easy to accidentally click another mailbox in the mailboxes tree and change the current tab's mailbox. 

Suggest a contextual menu when right-clicking the tab to have a 'Lock Tab' item in addition to the existing 'Close Tab' item. Also suggest that a 'lock' icon be placed in the tab to indicate it is locked.

It is unclear to me what should happen when a user clicks a mailbox in the mailboxes pane attached to the locked tabbed mailbox. Perhaps nothing? Perhaps the mailboxes get dimmed out?

The "show this mailbox" facility in 8b8 is a simple and elegant solution to this need.  I'll remove my vote.

Penelope didn't see any activity in the vcs for the last 8 years, closing.
