Thunderbird is my latest addition to my work PC, so that I can check my gravitystorm emails without using the web interface that my provider, umm, provides. The only problem is that all my filtering rules are run by the web interface, so I need to keep that open in firefox to filter all the messages into the appropriate folders. I need to sort the filters out to be server-side at some point, but never underestimate my laziness.
I found today that Psi and OpenOffice.org have installed themselves quite weirdly – i.e. they’ve added themselves to the startup folder as a network path (cs-cxgeneral6c$blah), instead of a local path (C:blah). Which explains why Psi pops up no matter what machine I log on to. It took me worryingly long to realise what was going on. I’m contemplating doing a similar thing for Firefox and Thunderbird, but I’ve no idea what that would do to my Firefox and Thunderbird profiles.
