    Hello there

    I've just made a move to Linux (Mint 10) and set up Thunderbird for IMAP.

    Coming from Windows / Outlook, I missed the tray envelope new mail alert, so I pulled down 'Mail Notification' from the Package Manager as below.

    I have added the various IMAP account details to the utility and it works very well but I just wanted to ask if there are any security implications that arise from having done so.

    I've only ever put my account details in Outlook or Thunderbird - nowhere else...

    Is it safe to assume that packages in the repository (?) are safe / certified in some way?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am using Ubuntu and Thunderbird.I have been using the FireTray add-on for Thunderbird and it is very useful.You can see the new mail notification for different mail accounts on the panel.

    But 'Start (TB) Minimised' doesn't work, right?
