Thank you soooo much for not forcing the default view to 'smart folders' on Thunderbird 3.1.
Whoever decided to rename them to 'unified folders' and not make them default needs some kind of promotion.
Why you say? I have about 10 email accounts, and actually share my instance of Thunderbird with my wife for her accounts. Unified (aka. smart) folders made mail separation messy.
Why you say still? I also have many custom folders that i use for mail organizing. 'smart' folders didn't really look that nice at all.
Plus I am too lazy to change the view every damn time i start thunderbird. :)
