mail notification in Thunderbird only for some accounts

Thunderbird already comes with a reasonable mail notification popup that tells you when new mail has arrived.

However, if you happen to have more than one email account like me, the default mail notifier by Thunderbird quickly becomes annoying, because I don’t want the mail notifier popup each time a mail arrives in any of the accounts but only one particular one.

A good alternative to Thunderbirds notifier is the “Mail Alert” addon [1]. It allows you to trigger changes on any arbitrary mailbox folders and thus is exactly or even better than what I was looking for.

One final hint: you can craft the contents of the popup message by using variables such as sender, subject, … You can get a listing of those variables by opening the Mail Alert help.
