    i'm using Thunderbird since 2 days now. I LOVE it !

    Before i was using Outlook Express as my news client.
    Now with Thunderbird, is there a way to flag/mark/identify a complete
    thread for easy visual lookup?

    In OE, there was this thing called "watch". Using this, in a simple
    click i was able to mark an entire thread to be watched.

    What was really nice with it is if a new message arrive and this message
    is part of a watched thread, then the name of the newsgroup change color
    to red to tell you that new activity on a watched thread append.

    Is there something similar in TB ?

  2. I don't know that there is exactly this functionality, but there are
    several ways to highlight a thread. Click on the thread, then click
    Message>>Watch Thread. Then click View>>Threads>>Watched Threads with
    unread. You will then only see watched threads that have unread messages.

    Unfortunately, in my testing of this, there does not seem to be any
    alert that a new message has come in to a watched thread.

    You can also label messages or threads in various ways, or flag them.

    If you are only looking to highlight the thread, you can right-click the
    thread and use the "label" feature. Selecting "important" will
    highlight it red.
