    Default Firefox Yahoo Notifier

    I am in a discussion with the developer of the Yahoo! notifier for Firefox.
    My idea was to see if the notifier could be adapted to work with a Zimbra
    mail server. If you want to see the details go here:

    [Ext] Yahoo Mail Notifier 1.0.0.3 - discussion - MozillaZine Forums

    The main thing that seems to be required to make it work is some sort of page that displays the unread mail count. Does the zimbra server produce anything that might be usable to a plugin like this?

    It looks like Yahoo! has a system for its Yahoo! toolbar which produces this:

    http://update.toolbar.yahoo.com/slv/v4/not

    Any thoughts on getting this to work? I can see it being quite useful.

    Nope.

    Any idea if the source is available?
    While this extension works there are some features
    in the Yahoo! notifier that would be nice to have in the
    Zimbra one. Maybe get the two devs talking to each other.

    Or one step further - work being done on: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/users/1...a-toolbar.html

    (Outside of the browser there's the toaster - admin console downloads page or as part of Zimbra Desktop)

    All the code for the firefox extension is included (download the .XPI file, rename it to .ZIP and unzip it) -- it shouldn't be too hard to pull out the zimbra-specific stuff from it in terms of contacting the server and getting data -- and use it somewhere else. Let me know if you need help with any of the server protocol stuff...

    Maybe I'll give it a go. I'm not a full on developer but I'm pretty good with scripts and munging two into one. Thanks for the tips.
