@anyone,

I switched from Outlook Express 6 to Mozilla Thunderbird under windows
XP home and I missed the ability of OE automatically using the DUN and
retreieving my email. With Thunderbird I have to manually start and login
to the ISP and then get mail. Is there a clever or maybe not so clever
way to get Thunderbird to auto dial up the ISP before getting email.

I don't know BP
I haven't used dial up in a while, so I hadn't noticed that this was missing.
Someone else has any idea

Me neither.
I've been using a permanent connection for ~1 year.
Maybe you could try the mozilla.org forums.
Other than that I don't have any ideas.
Cheers

@all,

Found more cool stuff for TB the makes it act like OE.

1) Outbox_0.1_rep.xpi --> this extension when installed creates "Send Later"
button similiar to Outbox in OE, for new messages and reply messages.

2) FreePops-0.023.exe --> this allows you to retrieve email from HTTP
webmail like Hotmail.com and others that don't use POP3.

3) Hotmail.lua --> this TB plugin with FreePOP allows you to get hotmail.

4) TBTray_05b.zip --> this program creates a icon on the system tray
of TB and when double-clicked brings up TB for use. I created a short-cut
for TBTray in the Startup Folder.

The more I tweak TB, the more I like it. It's a great email client

I guess Lua (programming language) is finally spreading
I love that language, and I wrote some commercial cool stuff (E-Mail -> paging terminal communications (TNPP/TAP) stuff ) about 4 years ago.
And I posted this circa 2000 : http://www.lua.org/uses.html#26
