Hello again.

Maybe you have xprint installed?  Are you sure it's needed?

On my sarge system, cupsys handles all printing.  Printing from
thunderbird, the default printer is the cups default printer.  The print
dialog box is identical to the print dialog box in mozilla 1.7.8.

With cups-pdf, printing to a file is as simple as choosing the
"cups-pdf" printer in the printer selection dialog, or you can still
choose the print postscript to file mozilla.ps.
