Replying from Thunderbird 0.3 from work (on Windows).

I have just finished setting up Courier-Imap, Courier-Maildrop and 
fetchmail on my desktop, so I can choose and change mail clients as I 
wish, and not have to worry about mail-box formats or redoing filters 
etc.  The only restriction is that you then have to use a mail client 
that works well with IMAP.

I currently use Kmail for reading my mail-list mail (I like the + and 
down arrow navigation) and Thunderbird if someone sends me HTML 
formatted mail and I want to reply.  I may even have a look at Evolution 

I can provide pointers on how to do this if anyone is interested.
