I think the title says it all. I have a 25GB U1 account and I like the option provided in Thunderbird to upload large e-mail attachments to YouSendit. Is there a way to use U1 instead of YouSendit? I could obviously publish the file via U1 and copy the weblink into the mail body. But I'd like to be able to have the step happen automatically when files exceed a certain size. Having said this, I kind of expected to see U1 as an option in the Thunderbird Edit->Preferences->Attachments menu.

That really sounds like a good Add-on idea. But from your Ubuntu one files page , you can directly send the link to them . – atenz Jul 12 '12 at 18:10
I agree, but sometimes it's handy if you are typing a mail and at some point you want to include a large file without leaving the mail. Instead before you send it Thunderbird would ask you whether to mail or link it - just as it does with Yousendit. – Philippe Jul 12 '12 at 18:23
Yeah, it is Really a handy feature , looking forward to see it implemented. – atenz Jul 12 '12 at 18:27

UbuntuOne support in Thunderbird Filelink is under development in Bug 744037 - Add UbuntuOne support for Filelink.

As you can see in the bug report, it is planned to land in Thunderbird 15, and you can already test it and give feedback by using Earlybird.

This sounds like a really compelling feature, but there is currently no support for Ubuntu One as a backend for Thunderbird's filelink.
