Minimize Thunderbird to the System Tray

This is neat: someone’s hacked together a little tool to let you minimize Mozilla Thunderbird down to the Windows System Tray so that it’s not always cluttering up your task bar. Nice work!

UPDATE (Sep. 1 2005): Setting up Thunderbird to run minimized in the tray has gotten a lot easier since I wrote this originally. Today, you just need to install the minimizetotray extension and you’re all set! (Oh, and the same extension can be used to run Firefox in the tray, too.)
