I'm looking for a gnome applet that periodically would watch for thunderbirds mail accounts.

Something similar to gmail firefox plugin. Did anyone notice this kind of applet?

This is not a gnome applet, but might help :

Also, there are screenlets apps available, IIRC.

Maybe I should be more clear, I want applet/whatever similar to import accounts from thunderbird profile – iElectric Sep 13 '09 at 8:02
Sorry, I don't think such a thing exists. The closest you'll come is manually adding your accounts to mail-notification. – Ryan Thompson Sep 13 '09 at 18:47
Actually, I just noticed that mail-notification can come pretty close to what you want. It won't auto-import, but it can directly read the Thunderbird INBOX files. You just have to point it to the files. – Ryan Thompson Sep 13 '09 at 18:51
That still means I need to have Thunderbird open, to recieve new mails. I guess there is even no API to thunderbird's credentials. Maybe I someday write such thing – iElectric Sep 18 '09 at 18:12

You can try using AllTray and dock Thunderbird in your system tray, then let Thunderbird's built in notification take care of it.
