The Thunderbird backend is pretty buggy and memory hungry, so it is no 
longer built by default.  You have to pass in --enable-thunderbird to 
the configure line for it.  I'm not sure if Ubuntu builds/packages it, 
maybe bhale can answer that.

The problem is being worked on, however, so hopefully soon we'll be able 
to re-enable it.

It checks both directories, but I'm not sure which it prefers.
