    Generally like it but am dogged by having 2 sent folders and a problem
    getting error messages that sent message cannot be saved when using
    ng's and writing and replying. Mail works fine in this regard.

    TB help sucks. Nobody in ng can help. Lot of chatter but little help.

    Been there but cannot find answer although others have problem. I'm
    just learning how to log into and use forum.

    One thing I really like about TB 3 is ability to edit forwarded mail
    cutting off headers.

    Hi
    I am using TB3, mac-version and am also stuck with special folders /
    additional sent/trash etc) I do not want
    because it makes it all look very confusing;
    also, there is a problem with folders, once removed, stil showing up
    in tree. Also, a copy of a (big) tree of folders with messages in it
    from local account folder to mail-account folder ends up incomplete
    (TB
    breaks off the copy without noticing, ending up with an incomplete
    copy of the original. Luckily I did a check up!). I guess I will
    wait for a (hopefully upcoming)
    Cheers
    Erik
