(FP once promised print pw's, but he sent the wrong ones and then we got side-tracked in a long exchange about column stores which seemed more important at the time, or maybe I just lost track of the message - if there were one change I could make to this Thunderbird reader, it would be to add 'secondary indexes' aka virtual folders aka VIEWS so that I could collect one message in multiple categories.)

Thanks for the tip about gsview - it didn't occur to me, I'll try it.
