I guess I should explain a little more. I run a music news website, and 
filter 300+ emails/day with Thunderbird and also queue up mail-outs.

When I will be away, I will need access to my TBird that has been left 
running open collecting/filtering the mail. I will need to access 
Thunderbird and check on my inboxes and do some corresponding with groups.

Now that I think of it, perhaps ssh access to an "already-running" 
programme would not work -- I am not sure. I have used ssh on my home 
LAN to work on one of the computers on the LAN but never with a 
programmed that has already been turned on.

I'll take a closer look at x2go (their website is under heavy 
construction) but it looks like, for the time being, working something 
out with TeamViewer looks like the easiest of the methods to use.
