Thunderbird Mail-Followup-To patch

There is a patch that fixes and completes MFT support in Thunderbird 2. It's just the last patch from Bug 204339 backported to TB 2 together with the patch from Bug 325429.

You don't need this for Thunderbird 3!

This works with kubuntu 8.04 and probably with all other debian based systems:

sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev fakeroot devscripts
[...]
sudo apt-get build-dep thunderbird
[...]
cd /tmp
apt-get source thunderbird
[...]
cd thunderbird-2.0.0.*/debian/patches
wget http://www.leptonite.org/mft/mozilla-thunderbird-2.0-bugs204339+325429.patch
[...]
echo mozilla-thunderbird-2.0-bugs204339+325429.patch >> series
cd ../..
