Autoit and Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

Atila

Hello, my first post and I apologise, I’m a newbie at Autoit but very keen to learn.

I’ve had some success coding some very simple scripts and now want to do something a little more complicated (well, in my eyes anyway!!)

What I want to achieve is very simple and that’s a message box that contains the number of unread messages in Thunderbirds Inbox.

In other words, if there are five unread messages in Thunderbirds Inbox then the Autoit message box would simply have a number 5 in it. The script would then also update its self, say every 15 seconds to see if the number had changed due to a new messages arriving in the Inbox or an email being read.

So my first question is.... can this be done using Autoit?

And my second question is.... can anyone point me in the right direction to achieve it?

Many thanks

Atila

If the mailbox is known then you can deal with it directly using imap.

I don't think there will be amy easy way to get AutoIt and thunderbird talking. Since thunderbird is designed to work across many systems, it won't have a nice easy interface for AutoIt to use.
