Easy Get Mail - Multiple Thunderbird accounts made easier

Like many Thunderbird users, I have multiple email accounts. Thunderbird checks both my accounts every 10mins. However, until today the simplest way to manually check my multiple accounts was to click the arrow to the right of the large "Get Mail" button and choose "Get all new messages" from the drop-down box. A two click operation!

Today, I found Easy Get Mail. Easy Get Mail makes account checking context-sensitive.

Formerly, pressing the Get Mail button would check email only for the selected account. After the installation of Easy Get Mail, pressing Get Mail will check the email for all accounts, unless an account root folder is selected in the folder pane, in which case only the selected account will be checked.
