<h2>SIP phone extension for Mozilla Thunderbird</h2><h2>What is accountex?</h2>
<img src="cockatoo.png" align="right"/> 
<h3>What is Cockatoo?</h3> 
Cockatoo is a project about 
implementing <acronym title="Session Initiation Protocol">SIP</acronym>/<acronym title="SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions">SIMPLE</acronym> as an extension for Thunderbird (XPCOM 
component/XUL interface) that enables users to phone contacts and see 
their presence state. 
Cockatoo is implemented by <a href="http://www.daluege.de/">Filip Dal&uuml;ge</a> 
as part of Google's <a href="http://code.google.com/summerofcode.html">Summer of Code</a>. It is mentored by Brian King of <a href="http://www.mozdev.org/">MozDev</a> and makes use of the <a href="http://www.croczilla.com/zap/">Zap</a> SIP stack. 
 <p>  <p>
Users shall be able to do a phone call by oneA powerful extension to export and import the accountsettings.
click out of their address book and to reply to emails by phone call. To 
put this into practice, the open standards SIP, SDP, RTP as well as audio codecs 
have to be implemented. These functionalities will be included into Thunderbird 
as an XPCOM component. 
 </p>  </p>
   <img alt="" src="start.png"><br>
 <p>  <p>
 On top of this component, an XUL interface will be set up that does  
 several tasks:  
 <ul>  <ul>
<li>Creating a basic standalone interface for accessing URIs of type <cite>tel</cite> and <cite>sip</cite>. These can be accessed by entering it directly or choosing an address from an address book sidebar.</li><li>The exportassistent save your accountsettings in a xml based textfile. Are supported at present pop3 and 'local folder' accounts.</li>
<li>Including a field "SIP address" to Thunderbird's address book cards. Email addresses will be mapped to corresponding SIP addresses so that a sender of an email with a known SIP address can be contacted directly.</li><li>The importassisten imports your saved accountsettings in a thunderbird profile. Helpfully for example after a new installation.</li>
<li>Displaying the presence state of email senders using the <var>SUBSCRIBE</var>/<var>NOTIFY</var> extensions of SIP defined in <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3856.txt" title="A Presence Event Package for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)">RFC 3856</a>. Any other SIMPLE services like <var>MESSAGE</var> (defined in <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3428.txt" title="Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Extension for Instant Messaging">RFC 3428</a>) should be implemented at a later time.</li> 
<li>Enabling the user to call persons from several interfaces of Mozilla Thunderbird like the address book or recieved emails if there is a known sender.</li> 
 </ul>  </ul>

 user interface draft  
 SIP is the most used open standard for telecommunication over IP, it is  
 standarized by <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3261.txt">RFC 3261</a>. As more  
 and more devices like notebooks carry microphones and a permanent  
 internet connection with them (WLAN), it is to be expected that users  
 will want to use their existing environment for phoning as well.  
 </p>  </p>
 Especially the last mentioned feature (calling by click using the  
 address book) is an extremely useful capability, as address books of  
 many Thunderbird users already contain phone numbers. These ordinary  
 phone numbers can be called over a SIP provider's gateway.
