Topic #24 Need help with Growl!!

Help! Could someone please tell me in a very elementary way how to get the Growlnotify code (thunderbird_wrapper.sh) set up with Growl. I'm brand new to Macs and UNIX, so I don't know how to modify the appropriate files, or even how to find them. (E.g., I tried saving the Growlnotify code using the Mac Script Editor, but it wouldn't compile -- should I take out the #'s?)
 Thanks!

You should/may/could use the script that I provide here in my scripts examples. This is not an apple script, so don't write it with the applescript editor. It's a simple text file. Just save it somewhere o­n your hard drive. Then, you must give 'execution rights' to this file. For this, open the 'Terminal' application (located in /Applications/Utilities), and type
chmod u+x "/path/to/go/to/the/script/growlNotify"
(of course, adapt the path)
Then, set this path+file in Yamb settings.

Thanks, Globs! Your reply was helpful. I also found the following site useful: http://www.neilturner.me.uk/2005/Nov/04/growl_and_thunderbird.html
which has explicit, step-by-step instructions for setting up Growl and YAMB to work with Thunderbird.
