    All I get is "double posts", where Thunderbird
    <sarcasm>helpfully</sarcasm> inserts my sent email into the threaded
    view, and then, of course, adds the ML copy of my sent mail. Still
    haven't figured out which message to kill on my end so I get a proper
    thread view. ;)

    My guess is that this is made worse in newsgroups, due to the gateway
    mirroring the posts both ways, and Thunderbird hiccups on the Message ID.

    Or something.

    I'm still on 2.0 and have never had any problems with the threaded
    view...not sure if that is helpful info or not.

    Alas, no. Thunderbird 3.0 introduced "smart folders", which are supposed
    to make things easier.

    IME, they are neither smart, nor make they things easier. :p

    Same here. TB 2.x works like a charm. I deliberately wanted to know
    whether someone has seen the same effects on 3.0 I am seeing.

    I also switched them off after an initial trial phase (which was very
    brief). :)

    Kind regards
