Default thunderbird extension for new email popup

When a new e-mail arrives Thunderbird pops up the little window saying account X has gotten a new e-mail. Instead it would be very nice if one could choose what should be shown in that popup. I would really like to see the sender, the subject's e-mail and maybe also the first part of the message. This should preferably also be linked to the actual message.

As it is now one has to click that popup thingie and then select the new message before it shows. Sometimes you just get e-mails that aren't that important at that time and can be happily ignored until later.

Maybe there is already such an extension? At least I haven't found it.

That's exactly what I am looking for right now. I looked through all relevant extentions at https://addons.mozilla.org and didn't find anything, then searched with Google and found this, not sure whether it does exactly what we want but I'm gonna try it out now. http://jelte.nlnetlabs.nl/Projects/Mailbox_Alert/

Have you found another extension that does what "we" want?

Cheers
Magnus

Okay whatever you mean by that? That youre using an old version?

Here is the link for everyone who also was looking for this: https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/2610/

And yes it works great :)
Everytime I receive an e-mail now a popup shows up with subject and sender. I hope he/she can include part of message body as well in future releases as well as a link to the message.

Cheers
Magnus

That's what I did just to find out that it was the same one as I was using but an old version.

All I meant was that it's better to give out more info so anyone easily can find it.

No hard feelings. ;)

Question Email Alert / Notification for Thunderbird

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for an extension or add-on for Thunderbird running on Fedora14 to display a pop up message in the window, similar to what outlook does.

Programmable in filters for specific catch phrases or people, this would be accumulative to the filter that sorts your messages into designated folders.

Eg. CRITICAL kernel crash.....on xyz server

With the trigger set for "CRITICAL" in the subject, this would trigger a pop up on screen, to get an immediate reaction... whereas all the other stuff just gets sorted for later.

I've looked at Mail Alert, and you can set general alerts, but not AFAIK for specific words or phrases...

Any suggestions ???
