It would be nice if the option to "finger" a persons email account would be available in the sidebar and somewhere in the addressbook itself. It would actually be very simple to implement. Just open a new window, take the email address, and tack the finger protocol onto it like this: finger:email@example.com And mozilla will do the rest.
You should use a bookmarklet for this.
Nifty idea, but not useful on 99% of e-mail addresses, unfortunately. And not understood by enough users. I'd love to see it personally, but overall it's probably not going to help our UI.

MASS-CHANGE: This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state. If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way. If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar). If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state. Query tag for this change: mass-UNCONFIRM-20090614
