As the resident Thunderbird supporter on some IRC channels I hang out 
in, one of the biggest issues I see with Thunderbird adoption is really 
pretty obvious: our Gmail support sucks. If we can fix the papercuts 
with using a Gmail account in Thunderbird, we'll be a lot more able to 
retain new users who try it out.

If the first thing you see when you install Thunderbird is that it 
doesn't handle your mail very well, you're just going to uninstall it 
and never look back.
