... newsreader - there are only three predefined headerlines to use with filtering mechanism - as they were in 1.5.x and no way to add custom ones.

And no, I can't create a extension myself.

I remember a few years ago when I read news in Thunderbird (it was just split out of Mozilla a few weeks before). It wouldn't store my preferences to have an extended view sorted by date. Each time I launched Thunderbird I had to manually go to the "View" menu to display the list of news by date and extended.

Things have changed, and now I read the news in Google Groups. Since then I don't pay anymore for my Usenet account.

Anyway, regarding Thunderbird 2, where are the screenshots???!
