Absolute great and very useful! I like this addon. However, apparently it's not compatible with TB 9.0.1. It would be great if you could provide an upgrade! :)

Absolutely Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

SmartTemplate is AWESOME!

This is something that should have been incorporated into Thunderbird in the first place.

What were the developers at Mozilla thinking?

A BIG THANK YOU to the developers of SmartTemplate!


Any news for Thunderbird v6 ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Any news for Smart Template on Thunderbird V.6 ?

Optional CC Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Any idea how to add optional CCs? That is...only show the CC line if there is at least one CC recipient.

Edit: Never mind. I got it. Basically...after the To line ends, put a { followed by a line break. Then insert your CC line per usual, ending with another }. This essentially only breaks line and inserts the CC line if the CC recipient exists.

It does not work for me in Thunderbird 5 anymore (even after changing the maximum version). The standard mail header is always shown, the one from SmartTemplate is not.
It used to be a great addon, but currently I would rather recommend "Change quote and reply format".

Works normally in Thunderbird 5 after editing the maximum version number. Excellent Add-on.

TB 3.3a3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A wonderful add-on, thank you very much!

Has anyone had any success yet in getting it to work with TB 3.3a3?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine with Thunderbird 3.1.10 on Windows XP SP3 and smarttemplate-0.6.0-tb.xpi

NB: Please notice that some of the reserved words are the current (!) date/ time (of replying/ forwarding) and others are the date/ time of the replied or forwarded message.

Current timestamp instead of timestamp of received message Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My reply template results in quoted headers that show the current date and time, not the date and time the message I'm replying to was received. It doesn't matter what reserved words I use. Despite what Marky Mark DE says in his review, even %datelocal% gives the wrong result.
This is my reply header:
Subject: %subject%
Date: %datelocal%
To: %to%
From: %from%

I must be doing something wrong. Anybody any idea?

Only works when replying to message in Inbox Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The reply template only seems to work when replying to a message in the Inbox. Replying to a message in another local folder always results in the standard Thunderbird quotes.

Wrong date and time Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Using TB 3.1.8, when I reply to a message, the header displays the current date and time instead of the date and time of the original e-mail. Did I make something wrong ?

Nice and useful add-on though. Thanx.

It gives two header quotes: Rated 2 out of 5 stars


I'm using Thunderbird 3.1.7. Today, I've installed the Smart Template addon 0.6.0. However, after installation, I'm seeing two reply headers like this:

On 2/16/2011 12:19:19 PM +0100 abc@xyz Wrote: ===> This is crafted by me.
On 2/16/2011 4:49 PM, abcxyz wrote: ===> Thundebird default quote.

Is there any way to get rid of this? I deeply appreciate a response.

Thanks much in advance.

extra for addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But you'd better to add the string for title, and, maybe, possibility to crate several templates.

Not work all....... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

On new e-mail.... in reply or forwarded messages it work's.... maybe Spanish TB 3.17?

Fix for all messages.
By replacing the prTime2Str function at 416 with the below function will make the date received %datelocal%Reserved word match the time stamp of Thunderbird. The early comment only fix the problem on certain messages.

function prTime2Str(time, type, timezone)
//Patch to correctly handle comcast.net emails.
var tm = new Date();
var fmt = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/intl/scriptabledateformat;1"].
var locale = parent.pref.getCom("general.useragent.locale", "en-US");
// Set Time
tm.setTime(time / 1000);
// Format date string
switch (type) {
case "datelocal":
dateFormat = fmt.dateFormatLong; timeFormat = fmt.timeFormatSeconds;
case "dateshort":
dateFormat = fmt.dateFormatShort; timeFormat = fmt.timeFormatSeconds;
return fmt.FormatDateTime(locale, dateFormat, timeFormat,
tm.getFullYear(), tm.getMonth() + 1, tm.getDate(),
tm.getHours(), tm.getMinutes(), tm.getSeconds());

Reason why it doesn't work on some messages Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I found one. If the headers section of the message is longer than 4096 bytes, then the extension doesn't work. This may have several reasons. For example there are many recipients of the message. Or some antivirus adds to much extra information. In my case it was the googlegroups.com mailing list which produced large headers. You can see the complete headers in message source code - press CTRL+U.

If the extension doesn't work for some message, just open Tools - Error console. You should see a message like:
hdr.get is not a function
If you can see it, then you probably have the same problem.

I have modified the extension so it accepts 32768 bytes which is a limit on many mail servers. It also contains two new reserved words TZ and TZ_NAME mentioned in my previous review. You can download it from http://rapidshare.com/#!download|47l32|442537343|smarttemplate-0.6.0-tb_timezones.xpi|36

I will contact the author so maybe the fix will be available in the next official version.
