    I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird. The toolbar permits me to "go to the
    next *unread* message" and the menu bar permits me to "go to" the *next*
    message. Usually, I prefer to move to the next message, so it would be
    handier to have that option available on the toolbar and subject to a
    single mouse click rather than the multiple moves required to use the
    menu bar. Can I somehow make that change?

    Why not just use the keyboard shortcuts:

    F-Next message
    B-Previous message
    N-Next unread message
    P-Previous unread message

    Haven't found the capability to do as you describe, however, why use the
    mouse at all? "F" takes you to the next message.

    In a different direction, you can use PowerPro
    http://powerpro.webeddie.com/ and the keyboard shortcuts The Old
    Sourdough link'd to.

    Create a toolbar anywhere you want that has the commands you wish, you
    can even hide it until you need it; say when you take the mouse to the
    right side of the monitor the bar will pop up right were your mouse
    is...

    Thanks, Old S, I never have given thought to learning keyboard strokes
    -- old dog and new tricks syndrome. I think your suggestion is
    excellent and I intend to bend this weak mind to learning the most
    convenient of keystrokes. I understand that some of the "old pros"
    never bother with the mouse -- keystrokes only.

    Thanks, Trax. I visited PowerPro home page. It looks awfully good. My
    reticence comes about only because I'm old, set in my ways, and too lazy
    to learn anything that I can get along without. I'm saving the link in
    my Bookmarks. Who knows, one day I may feel an uncontrollable burst of
    energy and initiative!

    You're welcome. Have fun, and yes, quite often the keyboard is the fastest
    and most convenient way to go. :)

    It's so usefull and pack'd full of abilities that it's learning curve
    is kinda high - Lots of tweaks.
