I understand about offline mode but is there a way to have Thunderbird visually let you know you are in offline mode without waiting until you try sending an e-mail or other task that requires it to tell you it is (and has been) in offline mode for awhile?

Look at the online/offline icon in the lower left corner of the screen. It looks like 2 computer monitors. There is a red x on it when offline. You can click the icon to change states.
