I can set my phone's address book to play special ringtones whenever certain people call me, alerting me to the potential importance of the call based purely on sound.

Rather than just the solitary biff sound for new mail, we should be able to set custom bifftones in the address book or filters so we can hear who mailed us without switching apps.
I like this.

This is most likely to be implemented using a mail filter with a custom action to play a certain tone as a notification response - which requires bug 11040. So I'll add that dependency and propogate the wanted request there.
Depends on: 11040
This looks like a dupe of Bug 118952 to me.

If you guys need to play who's-duping-who, then please set the components right...
Component: General → MailNews: Filters
Product: Thunderbird → Core
QA Contact: general → filters
Version: unspecified → Trunk

Not a primary focus for the thunderbird3 release; wanted- doesn't indicate we wouldn't accept patches.

I've got this working as a custom filter action, and will make it available in extension FiltaQuilla which will be available after TB beta1 releases.
I've now released to AMO an extension ToneQuilla that provides sounds as a custom filter action to TB and SM, working with TB beta1 shic was recently released. The URL for the addon is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/9956 Information about the addon is available at http://mesquilla.com/extensions/tonequilla/

There is not a well defined process for deciding and resolving bugs that are available in extensions. (Nor is there a decent process to find extensions that implement features, but that is another story). I'm going to leave this bug as "New" which I will define to mean "implement the ToneQuilla functionality in the core mailnews product".
No longer depends on: 11040

Kent, yes, that's the correct thing to do.

kent, why not work on implementing it as a patch as well and see if it gets accepted?
