Thank you very much Thilo for your informative and prompt response.
I've saved your post so I can find the default fonts again <g>.
From the Mozilla Thunderbird home page I see they are up to version
1/5/0/7 from my 126.96.36.199. I'll look into upgrading although I must admit
that Thunderbird seems very complex and 'fragile' to me so I get really
nervous when I mess with it.
I see you have been posting for about a month. Please keep up your good
work - it's not that easy to find 'technical' users in the Ubuntu
groups. My background is Slackware so I'm very much into the nuts and
