Use Thunderbird’s addressbook to dial a Phone

March 2, 2010

Working in my home office a have a phone connected to my laptop. With a self written application I can dial this phone.

With Thunderbird 3 predecessors I used a modified version of the FireFox plugin Fritz!BoxDial to dial the phone.

With Thunderbird 3 this does no longer work.

Recently I read the feature list of the Thunderbird plugin MoreFunctionsforAddressbook see
https://nic-nac-project.org/~kaosmos/morecols-en.html.
and I found

option to have phone numbers like “callto” links

It works like a charme (0.5.6.4 with TB 3.0.1).

Give it a try !
