<h2>SIP phone extension for Mozilla Thunderbird</h2>Welcome to the home of accountex.
<img src="cockatoo.png" align="right"/><h3>What is accountex?</h3>
<h3>What is Cockatoo?</h3> 
<p> 
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. 
</p> 
 <p>  <p>
Cockatoo is implemented by <a href="http://www.daluege.de/">Filip Dal&uuml;ge</a>A powerful extension to export and import the account settings from/to <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/"
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.title="Get Thunderbird - Reclaim Your Inbox">Mozilla Thunderbird</a>.

 <h3>Details</h3>  <h3>Details</h3>
<p>
Users shall be able to do a phone call by one 
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> 
On top of this component, an XUL interface will be set up that does 
several tasks: 
</p> 
 <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 export assistant saves your account settings in a xml based text file (RDF). Supported are pop3, imap 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 import assistant imports your saved account settings in a thunderbird profile. Very helpful for example after a new installation or re-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>

<h3>Motivation</h3> 
<p> 
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.
