Recently installed Ubuntu 12.04, configured Thunderbird email client. But seems like the email client is not working in background(like Rhythmbox).

Need to keep running that like other foreground application to get mail notifications.

And solution? Need any addon or plugins?

Found the solution with FireTray is an extension for Thunderbird.

One possible solution to your question is using Popper.

To install it from its PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ralf.hersel/rhersel-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install popper

This will check for email in the background and notify you: enter image description here
