I don't know what you are calling Account Central. The function I
consider 'central' for accounts because it shows all accounts in the L
pane has a title bar Account settings as in the par above.
Yeah; I grok the layout concept for folder pane, thread pane and message
pane for communications purposes. I use those 3 panes to orient very

I did say something similar to, "Account central is the pane at the
right when you select an account in the folder pane:".
Indeed your terminology for the concept of account central as a *PANE*
is correct. I don't normally tend to name functions by what pane they
live in, but I can accept that usage for terms of orientation in the
specific context of 'where you are' when you are needing to refer to a
specific pane when you have landed someplace. Personally, if there is
any chance of ambiguity, I like to name the title bar of the window for
the function as opposed to the window's particular pane.
I would like to note that there are a variety of different 'focuses' you
can be in and have a 'folder pane'. Since it is necessary to have a
folder pane to orient an 'account central' pane, we need to be in a
specific focus to be described.

In Account Central you can click the "View settings for this account"
link to open the Account Settings window. That is where here one finds
an Account Actions button at the very bottom of the left pane of the window.
One of many ways to add a new account. I like the simple Account Central
method for creating accounts when QA testing release candidates.
I agree with you that there is such a thing as an 'account central' pane.
If I close Tb and open it as an app; on my system, it opens to a window
title bar Local folders with the accounts on the left (folder pane) and
the Pane title 'Local folders' and I accept that that pane has a name,
ie (Local folders specifically account central pane - based on your
I also accept your argument that in that one view the function in the
account central pane has equal status in the 'create a new account' for
Email, Chat, Newsgroups, Feeds, and Movemail.
IMO that display of 'hierarchy' is in the 'minority' in terms of how Tb
treats the function of creating new accounts. More frequently, a news
account creation is in Other.
