Ubuntu – How to configure Thunderbird Unity integration, particularly the monitoring of selected folders


In ubuntu 11.04 I was using two thunderbird extensions :
– Messaging Menu and Unity Launcher Integration
– Unity Launcher Integration

Since 11.10 it seems they are bundled with thunderbird.

I just want to monitor Inbox folders for new mails, not all of my folders…

Is there a way do to this ?
