It works! I can get both my pop account and my hotmail account in one program, and they both work. I did have some difficulty getting my hotmail emails, but that is an issue with hotmail, not Thunderbird. Setting up message filters was easy too.
If you want to filter by a group from your address book, don't create a group inside an address book. Create a new address book and add the contacts to that.
