Change default email template in Thunderbird

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Opensuse 11.2 x86-64 KDE 3.2.1 Thunderbird 3.0b4 Thunderbird doesn't offer a way to make a user created email template the default when "create new message" is selected. Instead, one must open the templates folder and open one's template directly. A minor annoyance, but frequent. Surely there are files with code defining both the default and my preferred template; I would like to try substituting the code for my template in place of that for the plain vanilla Thunderbird default, but can't seem to find the files I would need. Can anyone point me in the general direction? (Distributions)
