It would be nice if thunderbird could minimize to the system tray or keep a instance of the program running. This would allow users to be notified of new mail all the time

Having following features would make minimize to tray much more useful-
1. Startup minimized
2. Start with Windows

Every other email client has built-in minimize to tray functionality. Thunderbird is the only one that doesn't. It's 2016. It's time.

Relying on third-party plugins that half work and break with every update is not a good option. Please!

Those are Extensions as Plugins refers to say Flash Player, Java, Silverlight etc.

Locking due to old age of thread as it was from way back in 2005.
