I recently upgraded to Thunderbird 3 on the Windows box which I am compelled to use for my email reading. I am loving the new feature which shows the body, title, and sender of all the messages in the thread in the message preview pane. The only thing that annoys me is that it only shows the first few hundred characters of the message body, not the entireity of it. Is there a setting which will tell it to show the entire messages, rather than truncating them where it sees fit?

This is currently not possible. There is a Bug 510490 on which talks about this request, but nothing has been decided yet on implementation.
