Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Thunderbird 3. You can read the release notes, or download the darn thing. "If you like Firefox's tabbed browsing, you're going to love tabbed email. Thunderbird 3's tabbed email lets you load emails in separate tabs so you can quickly jump between them. Search results open in a new tab too. New tools like our timeline and filtering tools will help you pinpoint the email you're looking for, whether it’s the one from yesterday, last month, or several years ago."

Thunderbird 3 indexing takes forever

I use Thunderbird on several computers.
[The profile's files reside on a microSD card inside my 3G USB stick which is also the way all my computers and their XP/Ubuntu OS's connect to the internet. This is handy].
The problem is:
1) I'm wondering where Thunderbird 3 is going to store its index. My notebook has been indexing for over 4 hours..and not I see it's on its way around again, indexing the same unused mailboxes. The hard drive LED is off, so I'm hoping the indexing is being written to the USB micro SD.
2)Maybe TBird3 is not for people like me. Is it portable?
