Since I began using Thunderbird some time ago, I have missed having a new mail notification in my tray. Of all the things I miss from Windows, that’s about it, but it has been missed. It’s time consuming to have to check my email manually every so often to ensure I know when I get new mail.

Thankfully, I found a solution recently. It’s a Firefox extension and is called the Mozilla New Mail Icon extension. I had no problems installing it and it works perfectly.
