I'll have to try the Nostalgia plugin, I've been using the quick file extension so far, which works but is not quite ideal when you immediately hit the right folder: you still need to select it from the list before hitting enter.
Although quick file makes thunderbird almost a usable Mutt replacement for me, I still have some remaining gripes:
- I don't know how to configure the equivalent of fcc-save-hooks: I want to be able to specify where to save both incoming AND outgoing mail addressed to certain people. Especially at work this is vital, as I still tend to organize my mail based on recipient (due to heavy Mutt use).
- I think external editor support is still somewhat lacking. I've tried the plugin, but it wasn't always stable (hangs up both thunderbird and emacs). I type all mail in emacs, and am not willing to switch to another editor just for email, especially if it doesn't fully support emacs keybindings.
I do very much appreciate the ability to view the folder list in tree-view mode, so once thunderbird matures a little further I may try switching again. For now I've returned to mutt, and I'm not unhappy with it so far.
