I spent about half an hour fighting the accont wizard before giving up and going back to 2.0.

If you want to use an email address that doesn't match you username then thunderbird changes the email behind your back.

It kept trying to append a domain to an IP address I was typing clearing the field.

I don't want all my mail in one folder (Work / Personal) and didn't find an easy way to set this.

It's wouldn't accept the SSL cert permantly for the session.

It made a simple thing very hard. I know the account details I want to configure but when it kept changing them without telling me it made me quite angry!

I didn't run into any of the issues you describe, but it sounds like you have a fairly non-standard email setup. You should definitely file some bugs with the Moz folks. I'm sure they'd like to know about the problems you encountered.

This sounds like "Smart Folders". Does View menu -> Folders -> All work any better for you?

I had the same problem. Due to circumstances beyond my control I have had to spend the last year or so under MS Windows. While T-Bird is not my favourite email client, it is better than most of the other options on WinXX. When I tried to upgrade to v3 the wizard did everything it could to make sure it didn't work. Finally I removed T-Bird and installed one of its many clones (Synovel Spicebird). Thankfully the new year brought with it a new system so I'm back to using Linux and Evolution.
