Profiler - yet another backup script for Firefox and Thunderbird profiles
It automatically detects the last recently used profile directories of Firefox and Thunderbird (installed versions, no portables).
Clicking the Backup-Button creates a complete Backup of the found profiles with a timestamp.
Restore deletes the according profile dir and extracts the content of the selected archive into the profile directory.
Uses Winrar as compression tool, but feel free to change it to your needs
So, Thunderbird does not have a minimize to tray option. Here is a handler to do just that.
More info. at https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/187431-thundrebird-to-tray/
gmail does not allow to things that a regular email client do, so, thunderbird is a good option.
But ThunderBird does not have a minimize to tray option. There are plugins but I read around forums and they have problems depending on the version, so, I wrote a non-plugin solution to my wanting.
Sources and compiled executable files are at https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/files/file/438-thundrebirdtotray/
The tray icons are:
Pruple = ThunderBird is not running. A double click will run it.
Blue = ThunderBird is visible. A double click will hide it
Green = ThunderBird is hidden. A double click will unhide it.
Right click will show a menu to:
Minimize to tray.
Show/hide ( just as a double click on the tray icon would )
Compose a new email.
Browse some folders that may be of interest.
In new version 0.2017.3.11
added: command line options /RunAs "UserName" [/minimized] [/hidden].
the user/password is saved encrypted to the ini file to each user's configuration.
fixed: "dyslexia induced" misnamed files.
added: browse startup folders
PS: I run this from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird" but I guess you can run it from anywhere. The features implemented are those to fit my needs. If you'd like to add a feature, I could go the extra mile line of code and add it. You may even make me aware of things that can be done, and be of use, that I did not know at the time of coding this.
I am trying to achieve the following:
When an email is received with a specific subject field, I want to trigger an autoit script.
I am not sure how to do the first part (monitor emails and check for the email subject filed, or even better, email content).
I have no specific requisites about the email client, it could be outlook, thunderbird, or other. It would be okay as well to read the email header only from an online gmail account.
I know it is possible with a gmail account (there are severals widgets that can do that) but I was wondering if this can be done using autoit ? My programming knowledge is very poor, and I doubt I can go through the use of Google APIs for this.
