Its good, but i miss the copy filter for the messages !
This is realy needed by the most users i think !

Its now only possible to move mails and there is no chance to copy it !

I think its too late in the game for them to push this GREAT enhancement into 0.7 and I think Scott said this would go into 0.8.

By the way, A BIG thanks to David Bienvenu for this enhancement as its working great for me in the latest nightly. I absolutely love this, and its working without a hitch. Only flaw I could see is that the accounts options screen may be a little confusing to new users if they choose the global inbox option.

In the extension manager, the update button seems to open a window that just sits there and does nothing.

When the app starts up look at the offline indicator in the lower right hand corner of the screen and click it to force yourself back on line.


So, is offline now built in? Does this mean we don't need the offline extension any more?


Anyone?

Just wondering, is there going to be an "RC2", "RC3", and then a final release version?

Thanks.

lol, are you afraid things turn out like FF0.9 ?? ;)

--> for the global inbox option : obviously it's too late for 0.7 (an RC is meant to be feature frozen by the way), but is it targetted for 0.8a ?

*sigh* Why does no one read the release notes :)

This happens when you do NOT do a clean install when upgrading. You should never install thunderbird on top of an older version of thunderbird without uninstalling the old bits first. Otherwise all sorts of problems like this happen. The release notes mention this in a big yellow box. :)

Yeah, I noticed a 0.7 release directory with all the goodies in it too. Whether that means it is being released today or not? Only M. Scott knows, and I wouldn't bother downloading it until he announces the official release, as things may change between now and then.

Um, the main product page announced 0.7's availability, I would hope that's official enough...
