4. Thunderbird Add-on

The Thunderbird Add-On is an integration for Unibox in Thunderbird.
This add-on is supposed to make mailing with Unibox even more comfortable.
The Thunderbird Add-On downloads attachments of e-mails via WebDav to a Unibox server and generates download links for them.
The recipient receives an e-mail with download links for the specified attachments.
Sharing files with emails has never been so easy.
