Mozilla Thunderbird Plug-in: SocialMail 0.6.2b

One of my favorite plug-ins for Thunderbird; it’s actually the plug-in that saved Thunderbird from being replaced by something else [for me]. SocialMail is a plug-in that mimics the functions of Xobni. Xobni has openly said that they have no interest in creating a plug-in for Thunderbird, and doing for Thunderbird what is Xobni has …
