[Bug 481281] Re: thunderbird cannot use socks proxy

Looking some more, it looks like it is a matter of Thunderbird not
proxying the DNS queries properly (or at all).

For Firefox, the following settings fix the problem:
  Preference Name                 Status     Type      Value
  network.proxy.socks_remote_dns  user set   boolean   true

For Thunderbird, DNS lookup should go along by default with the proxy or
at least have a visible checkbox on the proxy dialog.
