check all folders for new mail

To make thunderbird check all available folders for new mail (instead of configuring each folder separately) find the file prefs.js, which is in ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/SOMEDIR and add the following line, when Thunderbird is not running.

user_pref("mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new", true);

Then run Thunderbird again and it checks all folders.
