Using Thunderbird for Work Mail

I recently decided to switch over to Thunderbird for my work mail client. For a long time I was using Netscape, and then switched to Mozilla when the spellchecker was added.

Why switch from Mozzilla mail? Because Thunderbird is the same thing, whithout the browser etc. But why switch if they are the same thing? Because now that Apple got application switching (apple-tab) right in Panther, I don't have to be annoyed that I can't tab between browsing and mail.

Now if I could get an X-based tabbed terminal. iTerm is good, and X11 is good. I end up running iTerm to avoid all the xterm windows, but have to run X11 for emacs.
