No, keep the idea. It will help others to find the solution to your idea ;)
Oh, well, I'm glad to see here some feedback. Who knows, maybe we'll get this applet of dream in some future? :)
I promote this idea.
I have 3 mail accounts.
It would be nice if we could check more than one mailbox with one applet.
Yeah, trollboy, I agree with you - you can just keep your mail client open, however not always. So, it's just an idea to contribute and consider - to create such universal applet.
Emil89, you're totally misunderstood me. If my English that bad? :) Okay, again: I know how use Thunderbird and create many accounts, but I would like to have an applet for checking my incoming mail without actually launching Thunderbird (or Evolution, or any other mail client you like to use). There is such applet for your gmail account, and I think it's possible to create some kind of universal applet. Maybe not for supporting every single mail client, but working with the most popular ones.
Different mail clients store data in different ways so it may be difficult to make a truly universal applet in that way. It should be possible to make an applet that can check a list of accounts and display new messages and then open your mail client to read them.
I keep my mail client open all the time anyway so have no real interest in such a beastie but I can see the benefit for those with limited resources.
You CAN have more than one mail account on Thunderbird (I have two), so if I didn't misunderstand you, that's your solution. Just go to Edit/Account settings... click Account actions and Add mail account. :)
