Even though I appreciate 3.0 but the memory usage is very high compared to 2.0. Hope you can fix this and won't be like Firefox

How much memory in v2? in v3?
Are you using 3.0, or 3.1 thunderbird?

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Testing:Memory_Usage_Problems is diagnosis page which isn't quite finished yet, but you can use what's there to do some fishing and report back results in this bug.
Version: unspecified → 3.0

I am using Thunderbird 3.1. This is what others are saying in CNET forums and Avast forums.

Many people are hesitant to upgrade to 3 from 2.0
