Ubuntu: How to run Thunderbird in the background?



Question:

I want to get instant notifications for new emails and I don't want to install and configure an extra program for that. Thunderbird shows notifications, so does Gmail webapp. But both of them work only as long as they are open and running (or minimized).

Is there a way to have Thunderbird show notifications without keeping it open (at least the GUI)?

OS: Ubuntu 14.04

Thanks


Solution:1

I recommend (and use) FireTray, which you can get at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/firetray/.

It will keep Thunderbird running in the background, and then notify you of new emails.


Solution:2

You can use minimize to tray add-on; TB needs to start though. See this link for description and downloading

The background in this particular image is a simple poster board that can be bought fairly cheaply. You may feel that just shooting onto the poster board background would be enough.
