Vonage's Click2Call for Thunderbird.

Is there a Vonage Click2Call extension that will work with Thunderbird? I found this extension (via this forum thread), but as you can clearly see, the person's Web site has been parked. I found this earlier AskMe question that mentions a Greasemonkey script, but I'm not sure how to use it. I've got Greasemonkey running on my WinXP computer, but I don't know how to edit the script itself like you are supposed to. Plus, I'm not sure that it can access my Contacts list in Thunderbird.

Email Help - A Streamlined Solution

I’m hoping that someone can provide me with some email tips, specifically for a Hotmail user. The main problem I’ve been having is finding a streamlined solution for all of my email accounts. Here’s my current setup/status: - 1 hotmail account (my main application) - 2 gmail accounts (used mainly for online sign ups and the like) - 1 work email account - 1 account through my ISP (time warner – roadrunner) - Multiple site accounts at joelneuenhaus.com - To wrap it all up, I use MS Outlook 2003 (work is accessed directly through an Outlook POP3 setup; my website accounts are forwarded to gmail and gmail is forwarded to hotmail; my ISP account is accessed via POP mail retrieval in Hotmail – a real pain – finally Hotmail is accessed through an Outlook HTML account) [more inside]

Telling Thunderbird what folders to check for New Mail

How do I tell Thunderbird what folders to check for new mail? Situation: I use procmail on my mail server to filter my incoming mail into about a dozen mailboxes. The mail ends up in ~/mail/new/mailboxes Thus, my mail never ends up in the default IMAP inbox. It seems Thunderbird only checks the inbox for new mail. Desired Outcome: I want Thunderbird to check my dozen different mailboxes for new mail. How can I do this?

Thunderbird -> Mail.app

I'm trying to import a Thunderbird inbox into Mail so I can use Spotlight to index the messages. Everything works fine, except Mail ends up importing over 4000 messages, most of them spam, when all I see in the Thunderbird inbox is 900 messages. Why are the ghosts of spams past showing up like this? The trash can and junk mail folders are empty as can be.
