A few months back, I broke my Kmail config, and decided I'd check
out Thunderbird (I haven't used it since it was part of Netscape

monkey riding on my back hitting me with over-ripe bananas.
How so?  I've used Tbird for years, after having used Evolution,
KMail (back in the KDE 2.x days) and Nutscrape 2.x-4.78.

Eh, it was just all the little things -- I couldn't get it to look right (fonts, icons, etc) and I wasn't willing to spend the time customising it. I didn't need to do that with Kmail -- the default look just is nicer, in my opinion, although I realise that's a subjective feeling.

Maybe mine's been configured for so long that I don't remember any more...

And I kept running into gotchas that annoyed me. Things like, when I would show all headers in a mail with the intention of copying them, I discovered that each line was a separate text control and you couldn't select text from two header lines simultaneously. Apparently you're expected to use a completely different interface, the View Source command, and select text from that. Grrr arggghhh.

The Mnenhy extension makes that easy. And reply-to-list is another vital add-on, especially for mailing lists (debian-*, for example) that don't munge reply-to headers.
