I would like an option to be able to start #Thunderbird at system startup already minimized or a mode that sends notifications even if the program is closed (kind of like Windows Mail does

I am coming from this thread and wanted such option too. Adding system a system service to keep it running in background which can be added to auto-start too.

I also would like a minimized auto-start option with windows or alternatively a background service to check for new mails in the real-time. A close to tray would also be nice to prevent accidental termination of the program, that way I could keep getting my mails. These two features, I believe, are the most demanded ones currently as many people are moving away from Windows Mail for obvious reasons.

Hi!

I also would like to have a minimized auto-start option, a close to the tray, and a letter icon on the tray area, when new email arrives.
