NewMail Execute   NewMail Execute

This extension observes your mail-folders and and runs an executable of your choice whenever new messages arrive.

Thunderbird's built-in-functionality only lets you play a WAV-sound and/or display an alert.
Using this extension you now can invoke any external program or script which can perform any action you like.

These actions could be:
  • show a special notification-window (useful for Linux-users like me ;-])
  • control an LCD
  • play sound-files of any format
  • etc.
"NewMail Execute" also passes the folder's name (which triggered the execution) to the external program as an argument.

The screenshots show you how the extension can be customized and explain what exactly I use the extension for.
The download-link can be found here.



Known issues:

NOTE
This extension is in early beta-stage!
Although it fulfils all my personal needs, it may not do the job for you!
There still has to be done a lot of testing (IMAP-folders, heavy (down)loads, etc.).
It's very unlikely that the extension could cause any harm... but I just wanted to "warn" you. ;-)
Of course... any suggestions, bug-reports and comments are welcome.
