 That would require a userContent.css file in the chrome folder of the 
profile you want to alter.

P { line-height: 1.0em !important }

The base value is 1 em and means 100% of the the fonts designed height.  
Adjust the value to greater or less than 1 to increase or decrease the 
"Leading" space between lines of displayed text.

Upon review, this style could also be placed in the BODY tag where it 
will affect all line height computations within the message.

Body { line-height: 1.0em !important }

      To answer Rick's (the OP) follow-up question, will it also work
in the folder pane?

You can use the line-height styling to adjust the "Leading" of text.  
Leading is the typographic term for inserting additional thin strips of 
lead between lines of lead type.  In CSS this works in a similar manner, 
adding whitespace below the letters that forces lines of text farther 
apart vertically, independently of the margins, borders, and padding of 
the container the text is rendered into.

I personaly have had mixed results trying to use line-height  to modify 
some theme settings for the folder tree in the folder pane.

As to the other thread where Rick asked a follow up, I defer to others, 
as I have not tested adjustments because of the graphics used by the SPC 
theme.

P is the HTML tag for paragraph.

How to filter for support-thunderbird messages
I've had problems using Thunderbird to filter some of my mailing list messages into their own folders. While the typical filters for To:/Cc: or Subject: work just fine for ordinary email, some mailing lists don't include a standard List ID element in their subject and some don't include the mailing list name in the To: or Cc: address. This Thunderbird Support list is an example of a list that doesn't have a standard subject, but I thought it was consistently addressed to "support-thunderbird@lists.mozilla.com."
