    Question Thunderbird Address Book - contact photo plugin request

    Using thunderbird, I'm looking for a plugin to see the LDAP contact photo, like in KContact. If this means I can add photos to my contacts that would be good too. Kinda "apple mail"-ish but still, good. I think gmail also send pictures to other gmail people, can that picture be downloaded through POP into thunderbird?

    Just doing a quick search for "photo" in the Thunderbird section of Abominations.Mozilla.org (actually AMO, the Mozilla add-on site, I'm just still not happy with the redesign the site got recently) I saw the Message Faces add-on. I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for but I didn't turn up any other candidates. It could be an addon is just waiting to be written to do the job.

    MessageFaces works great, but I can't find the LDAP integration... still cool tho!

    MessageFaces supports embedded PNG Face Headers, X-Face, Gravatar.com, local face images and remote Face URLs

    It doesn't indicate anything about what standards LDAP and Gmail use. It's good to know this exists but can anyone confirm that it works with either LDAP or Gmail avatars/face pics.

    Message faces only handles picture display and sending via email, has nothing to do with the Address Book in TB according to their site.
