One serious problem is it's use of the hidden file .thunderbird for it's profile information. Can this be changed to .eudora or .Penelope? Really messes up the use of Thunderbird which was the previous best e-mail choice for Linux and has too much info to be discarded. Should this be reported to the eudora team as a bug?

jim, I will pass on if they haven't already discussed it or it's dealt with in rc2 which i'm working through at present.
It was primarily so the two applications can share data.
edit: reply from eudora group is that it's not practical to have it different by default as it would mean a lot of code rewriting, their sugestion is to look at the thunderbird wiki as it may give you a idea of how you change the save location. sorry.
