    Me too. OE definately has its problems, but it's still the best design from a
    UI perspective.

    I agree. This "feature" drives me nuts too, and it's why I still prefer OE over
    Mozilla Mail.

    As to the suggestions offered in this thread:

    Running another program to consolidate mail is a wretchedly excessive kludge to
    a basic user interface design problem.

    Ditto setting up filters -- it may consolidate mail OK, but it doesn't do
    anything about the clutter.

    As for Mozilla News -- that text editor with the black line for quoted text,
    instead of plain ASCII characters, is *terrible*. News and mail are plain text
    formats, and should be treated as such. If you insist on using HTML or
    graphical crud that's fine, but not as the default interface.

    I'm amazed Mozilla Mail/News are so bad, while the browser is so good.
