WISH: Thunderbird - Multiple panes for folder views

Ian Graham
When I have lots of local folders, I get really frustrated scrolling up
and down from the remote folders to the local folders.

It would be nice if, instead, there were two folder panes: one
containing the remote folders, and the other the local ones. e.g.

----------------------
|- Remote folders  |X|
|  - INnbox (23)   |X|
|  - Sent          | |
|  - Trash         | |
|  - xxxxx         | |
----------------------
|- Local folders   | |
|  - folder 1      | |
|    + subfolder   | |
|  - folders       | |
|  + folderX       | |
|  -folderaaa      | |
|  -folderab       | |
|  -folderCC       | |
|  -folderdD       | |
|  -folderEE       | |
----------------------

Then I can scroll through the local folders, and still see all the
remote folders unscrolled. My model is to move mail from the inbox to
selected local folders - so I'm constantly scrolling down to the local
folder I want, moving the message to it, and then scrolling to the top
to get back to the inbox.

THoughts?

Yep. Nice idea.


Have you considered making a bugzilla feature request?

Yes, I have -- but wanted to check here first to see if I had just
missed something: To be honest, I expected that (a) this would be
possible with some appropriate hidden pref setting, or (b) someone
would've suggested this before.

I will submit it as an enhancement request.
