Well don't blame me if T-Bird is vastly different across platforms.
I'm just saying where to find it in Thunderbird. If those Mozilla
folks are doing their job right, then I would hope you would see the
same thing on CentOS. YMMV. Sorry for trying to be helpful. However I
can't find any reference to what T-Bird version you are using, so if
you are on v2 then all bets are off.
