	:-) What a sexy TM policy that is ... thankfully ours is better in that

	Oh - odd; I imagine that is the detection of icedove going wrong.
Poking in connectivity/source/drivers/mozab/ would prolly help - do we
load the mozilla module in MDriver.cxx ? (generated from SLO2FILES in
makefile.mk) ?

	Oh - adding a Thunderbird/Icedove in the dialog sounds by far the best
from the perspective of reducing clutter / duplication. Also - (from my
cursory glance) it is unclear that we require any real code changes to
support icedove - I don't see (off hand) - is it possible that IceDove
tweaks the product type enumerations in some way eg.

return ::com::sun::star::mozilla::MozillaProductType_Thunderbird;

	Anyhow - I hope that helps !

	All the best,
