Can I add color with filter and other questions.

Hi:

I just started using Thunderbird.

My copy of OE somehow got messed up and I was having difficulty configuring
it for gmail or my ISP. TB worked "first time" and still has most of the
"look and feel" of OE.

BUT there are a few features of OE that I still would like to have. They
include:

1) Having one of the "filter" actions include adding color to the listing
of the post.

2) Having a "Read Next Un-Read" button.

3) Deleting an entire un-expanded e-mail thread with one "click."

As far as I can determine, these "features" aren't yet available in TB.
Did I miss something?

Again, I LOVE Thunderbird. I especially like that it doesn't automaticlly
download pictures from SPAM. I expect that my SPAM load will decrease in
the next few weeks.

Thanks in advance.

lets see what I can do. Filtering: yes, its called tagging.
You'll see it when you create a filter. Or, hit the
numbers 1 to 5 on the number pad

right click on the top toolbar, and select customize. Or, I
think its View, Toolbars, Customize. And you'll find
additional buttons there.

OE really doesn't delete anything. It just removes it from
your view. TB doesn't do that.

Actually, OE works quite similarly to TB and other Mozilla mail
products. When you delete a message in either one it gets marked for
deletion and moved to the trash (in OE - Deleted Items). There they
stay until you empty the folder.

Drats!!!! Once again, I read wrong. I thought the OP was
discussing newsgroup messages. Thats why I said what I
said. Instead I should have read email messages, and what
you say is correct.
