Quoted from mscott over @ mozillaZine forums:

“Starting with today’s 10/18 builds, you can now help test one of our new 0.9 features, saved search folders (aka virtual folders). A saved search folder looks like a regular mail folder but when you click on it, it runs a pre-determined search on arbitrary search criteria and arbitrary mail folders and shows you the results, creating the effect of a ‘virtua’ folder. We just checked in our User Interface for creating and editing saved search folders and can use your testing help.”

Summary of the New Behavior & Known Issues

“And a big thanks to David Bienvenu for doing all the heavy lifting in the mailnews back end to support saved search folders.”

Personal blog moved to SFX

My personal blog has moved over to Spread Firefox. I will post all non-TRE/Thunderbird related posts there, including site improvements etc. Everyone is welcome to post suggestions in either site.

Currently, my thoughts are on a Spread Thunderbird site. With such a sustained marketing campaign towards Firefox, Thunderbird will need a similar push to gain worldwide attention to compete with the likes of Outlook and Eudora.

Read more and contribute to the discussion. You will have to login or register there to post comments.
