That's good to know, I've tried Lightning 0.5 recently with Inverse's
Lightning Enhancer extension[1] and it's promising but left me
unsatisfied so I've been trying Chandler which is usable but
has its own issues.

Hmm, have you looked at Scalable OGo[2]?  Inverse have put a lot of
work into it and have also worked on the Thunderbird client support
for it [1] and [3]


I'm going to be evaluating this as an option for an SME client in the
near future.
