I use this addon to trigger fetchmail to run. It pulls down my mail from the server to my desktop. I only have Thunderbird configured to check for mail locally. Perhaps a little odd, I know. I could use Thunderbird to check external mail servers directly.

This was a good solution for me and allowed me to experiment with writing an extension. Hopefully, someone else out there will find it useful.
