In the left hand column, I see all my email accounts. Now that I'm ditching Compuserve (cuz ' Verizon's crappy new no-privacy policy) I want to move the account to the bottom. I will keep the account open, but have unsubscribed to all lists and am moving friends/colleagues away... So wondering how to change the order, if I can...

See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunde ... rs/?src=ss . It also lets you sort the accounts in the folder pane.

You need to install the add-on using the icon that looks like a gear (its actually a list box) at Tools -> Addons -> Extensions. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Importing_folders for an example of how to do that (using a different add-on). Then restart Thunderbird and use the add-on's options (select the add-on and then its options button in in tools -> add-ons -> extensions) to change the account order.
