I use the latest dev build of OpenSolaris (build 132). And I use 
Lightning 1.0b1 which is available in the contributed builds page for 
Lightning. Works like a charm.

Note that there is a bug in 64 bit mode that you have to add a few lines 
of script to the thunderbird start script because by default it is a 32 
bit binary and if you have several hundreds of folders, you get error 
messages. This is due to a limitation of thunderbird 3 default build 
which configures a maximum of 256 open file descriptors on Linux / 
Unix... need to set that number with ulimit to much more... :)
