The main reason why most toolbars aren't vertical is because most 
languages read horizontally, and therefore it makes most sense to put
text horizontally, not vertically, to make it simple to read.

Make buttons the way Firefox/Thunderbird do - text label below the icon
- then let the user choose. For people with large widescreen monitors,
having a wide(r) vertical toolbar wide enough to hold both the button
icon and the text label would be perfectly fine.
