I'm currently working on a basic extension that implements the WebExtensions API live in the current beta build, and I'm having some difficulty implementing code to detect/filter incoming messages. The older Thunderbird extension docs provide some illumination on this (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Thunderbird/Thunderbird_extensions/HowTos/Common_Thunderbird_Extension_Techniques/Filter_Incoming_Mail), but the link to the previous step is dead and some of the code doesn't seem supported in the current build. Any ideas as to how to detect incoming mail/where I could potentially find resources for this? I'm new to Thunderbird development, so I though this forum might be a good place to start! Any help is appreciated.
