Hopefully the default will be GLODA=off and smart folders=off and then the
additional humungous file space requirements will not be needed and the user
presentation a lot more familiar as well as functional?

I must admit I cannot imagine why the thunderbird developers wanted the global
indexing thing in the first place - I, like many others, keep mail accounts
separate for a good reason - and I don't want a global search - it is insane -
and I also don't want to munge my inboxes together - I keep work and private
mail as well as other accounts separate so they there is no mixing and merging.

Hopefully f12 TB will arrive and function smoothly (hands clasped together, eyes
looking upward, channelling all the power of prayer......and hoping the
developers are listening!)
