Hi Everyone,

I am trying create an extension which will read my incoming email and post all the details to external API
From a last three days I am unable to get any proper source or blog which help me out for the basic code
I tried a small extension from there official support website and it working but don't know how to access mail box and mail messages.
Can anyone help me with that

Thanks in advanced.

Were you trying to use https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... extensions ?

You should also look at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird/Add-ons_Guide_57 . https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/forums/ lists some useful forums such as mozilla.dev.apps.thunderbird at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum ... hunderbird that you might want to browse. I suggest you also subscribe to the MailDev mailing list using http://lists.thunderbird.net/mailman/li ... erbird.net and browse the extensions development forum at viewforum.php?f=19 . Most of it is for Firefox but it still might be useful.

I suggest you start by examining the source code for an existing add-on at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ that either reads mail messages or checks for new mail. Perhaps Header Tools Lite or MailBox Alert?
