    Congrats on dipping your toe into the pool of Thunerbird. I run about 14 IMAP email accounts out of my two instances of Thunderbird. I’m running my windows version with the GnuPG plugin, the “colored quotes” and Lightning plugin. Lighting is a cut-down version of Sunbird, which gives a calendar view in Tbird.

    I restart Tbird about once a day on my windows XP Pro box. I restart my Tbird about once every two weeks on my Fedora Core 4 box.

    I would certainly encourage you to consider managing your email backend with IMAP. I’m running a small “embedded style” server in my kitchen with a 250G on it and it recieves about 35 email lists and my family’s email and it’s only a 600Mhz box with 256M ram, running CentOS. This box is quiet, it’s fanless, and all I hear are drive-seeks.

    The following howto is the one I prefer, however, it’s not the simplest or most direct setup. It is one I like to share because if you’re looking at managing virtual mail domains and users in a database instead of LDAP, this works well.
