My mailbox has been congested so I'm trying out reading newsgroups via

delete threads I don't care about from thunderbird's display. I
figure there must be some way to do this, right? But I don't see the
delete option anywhere when I'm browsing mail groups. I assume I'm
missing something basic, & thunderbird help is nonexistant... ...
thanks forthe help,
I also read this list as newsgroup linux.debian.user using thunderbird.
You can't "delete" a thread, because you're not the thread author. You
can mark the thread "Read" quickly with the "t" or "r" key.
So when I read this list, the first unread message header is highlighted
by thunderbird when I hit "Get messages for Account." Then "t" will
mark the message or thread "read" if I don't want to read it. The
arrows keys let you navigate a thread before or after opening it as well.
Matt, the keyboard shortcuts are clearly noted in the pull-down menus.
If you need more help, the pull-down menu "Help -> Thunderbird Help"
takes you directly to Mozilla Thunderbird Help,
Maybe you can tell I really like this puppy!
