Top Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm so happy about this addon, missed this feature a long time. All features are configurable, as far as i need it.

One suggestion:
If you select "Never show" for the list of reminders ("Lister der nächsten Wiedervorlagen anzeigen"), it would be nice to see any information about a needed restart of Thunderbird.

Only thing i missed:
Make it configurable to hide the Message-Popup, when a resubmitted email arrives.

Thanks for your review!

Thank you, that you spend some time in order to write down a review for mailmindr. For your suggestion and your missing feature: can you please send an email to hello (at) mailmindr . net? Again, thank you :)

Time Line for Update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I know an update is in the works. When do you think it will be available? Great program/add-on for Thunderbird!!!!

Also, here's my wishlist (take it for what it's worth):

*a recurring reminder would be good (can't remember if that's already included, but I don't recall seeing it).

*A month calendar pop up when choosing a date to review

Dear Developer,
This is the most useful add on for Thunderbird and works perfectly. Does the job very neatly and without a fuss.

It however has stopped working on Thunderbird 38 onward. Can you please update this for the latest version of Thunderbird.

Many thanks.

Thanks for this great review - update is on its way

Thank you for your review. An update for Thunderbird 38 is on its way, with several bug fixes, so keep auto-update enabled in order to get the new version as soon as possible.

Doesn't work after Thunderbird update to 38.0.1, please fix i.. I've been using this addon and it is supagut! Just what needs to have for follow-ups.

Sehr nützlich, Bug in der Kalender Darstellung Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Funktioniert prima.
Einen Bug gibt es allerdings beim Kalender für die Auswahl des Wiedervorlage Termins.
Die Datumsfelder sind in der Kalenderübersicht um einen Tag verschoben, so dass der Wochentag nicht stimmt.
So wird zB der heutige 03.06.15 als Donnerstag angezeigt.
Erster Tag der Woche ist auf Montag konfiguriert.

Danke für Lob & Hinweis

Danke für das Lob und den Hinweis - die entsprechende Kalenderübersicht wurde angepasst und funktioniert in der nächsten Version von mailmindr (wieder) ordnungsgemäß!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wunderbar and very useful: Viele Danke.

One need: have the overlayMessageCompose optional, since the code is clear and sond it was very easy to patch your code canceling the display, but this may be put as an option in preference.

Meine E-Mail an Dich: Fragen zum Einsatz von mailmindr vom 21.08.2014 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hallo Arnd,
hattest Du schon Gelegenheit in meine o.a. E-Mail zu schauen?
Ich finde das Addon bemerkenswert gut, nur scheint es bei mir nicht richtig zu funktionieren. Mir würde ein kurzer Hinweis genügen, dass die E-Mail angekommen ist. Gruß, Ho

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ich bin extrem enttäuscht über dieses Add-on. Ich habe eine wichtige E-Mail auf Wiedervorlage genommen, kam dann aber doch nicht zur Beantwortung als die Wiedervorlage erschien. Musste zwischenzeitlich außer Haus und der Rechner wurde ausgeschaltet. Als ich dann später diese E-Mail nach Ablauf des Wiedervorlagetermins beantworten wollte, half dann kein Nachricht öffnen Button, es öffnete sich keine E-Mail. Im Zur Nachverfolgung-Ordner war die E-Mail auch nicht mehr und auch in keinem anderen Ordner. Glücklicherweise konnte ich die E-Mail über den Profilordner bzw. den Server nochmals lesbar machen. Ein Add-on, welches mir E-Mails einfach verschwinden lässt, ist für mich komplett unbrauchbar und wurde deshalb wieder entfernt. Dann verwende ich doch lieber weiterhin das umständliche E-Mail in eine Aufgabe umwandeln.

Bitte an den Support wenden

es tut mir Leid, wenn das AddOn nicht so läuft wie es sollte.

Als erstes aber mal vorweg: mailmindr löscht keine E-Mails.

Von der Beschreibung her scheint mir der Suchindex des betreffenden E-Mail-Kontos durcheinander gekommen zu sein. Um diesen neu aufzubauen bitte wie auf dieser Seite beschrieben vorgehen:

Um herauszufinden, wie es zu dem Fehler kam, würde ich gerne die Log-Datei(en) einsehen, welche im Thunderbird-Profilordner liegen (mailmindr.log), diese bitte per E-Mail an hello(a)mailmindr * net senden. Dazu bitte auch eine kurze Beschreibung der Anwendungsumgebung (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), 32/64 bit, war die Wiedervorlage in einem POP3 oder IMAP-Ordner, Wie viele E-Mails befinden sich (ungefähr) in dem Ordner, wie viele Konten sind insgesamt eingerichtet? Ich danke für die Mithilfe!

Mit den besten Grüßen,

Very nice. What I was searching for

Great!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simplemente necesaria para mi trabajo.

Seria bueno organizar los elemento por tiempo restante. No funciona en este momento.

Muchas gracias.

Ersetzt hervorragend die Nachverfolgungsfunktion aus Outlook. Eine Funktion, die ich in TB bisher schmerzlich vermisst habe.
Getestet mit TB 24.5.0

Good addon but still lacks important features Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I would really like to give a 5 star rating because this addon is essential to my workflow. But it lacks some very useful features:
1. A shortcut to set resubmission when a message is selected (eg Shift+R). This is really a key feature for me and for power users in general (see how it's done with "quick folder move" for example).
2. Setting another default action. For now, it's the "flag message" option which I have no use for. Instead, each time I set a resubmission, I have to select the "copy to folder" option, which is *really* annoying.
Other features would be cool (like combining actions, as "mark as unread" and "copy to folder") but the first two would make a HUGE difference, as they would dramatically reduce the number of clicks required to set resubmission. I will continue to use the add-on for now, but this could be a problem in the long run. However, I will gladly donate 7$ if you implement the above mentioned features ;-) Keep up the good work!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.7). 

Wait for next version

Hi Soyagabo, thanks for your comment! The next version will cover these feature requests. There will be still one more feature for power users: inbox zero support. Wich means: mailmindr moves messages out of your inbox and move them back in after a given time. Will be available soon, stay tuned! Best, arnd.

EDIT 20140512:
Both features are now available with mailmindr 0.7.9. Set resubmission with CMD+SHIFT+W (Mac OSX) or CTRL+SHIFT+W (Windows). Presets for the actions are available in the AddOns preferences dialog. Enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I would like to give more stars for this app because I like it. As there is no way to mark mails within IMAP I would need a realisation in a different way: An interface to calender (lightning)! Reminders should work on every platform, therefore this would be the way to make the tool really useful.

Thanks for the donation

Hi Martin, thanks for your rating and the donation you made. I will contact you shortly via your email address to get more in detail about your needs.

Doesnt work. Crashes thunderbird until uninstalling this addon. :-(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.4). 

Working on it.

Thanks fo your feedback, Farbmond. We're working on several bugfixes. Please provide more information, so we can see what causes your crashes. Within the Thunderbird profile folder, there are a mailmindr.log and a mailmindr.sqlite file. Would you please send them both to hello (at) This helps a lot.

Very nice idea i need it. Please, make it works!

It doesn't work here (TB 17.0.6 on Win7-64). Had to uninstall to use TB. A real pity, because it's needed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3). 

Detailed information needed

Hi Sandro, thanks for your feedback. To solve this issue please send further information to hello(at)
- what do you mean by "doesn't work"; are you unable to set remindrs? Does TB crash on startup?
- what other AddOns do you have installed?
- can you send me some log files or a screenshot?
Thank you for your help!

Seems as a good addon, but not compatible with Win7 64 Bit and Thunderbird 17.0.6 portable - after installation TB not responding.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3). 

More information needed - do you have many folders?

Thanks for your review. Can you please give me some more information about the issue? Do you have many(!) folders for your emails? If so, please send me an email (hello [at] mailmindr [dot] net) with the mailmindr.log and the mailmindr.sqlite files attached (you can find them in your profile folder) and the number of folders you currently created in Firefox. Thanks for your help.

Good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works quite good with Thunderbird 17.0.5 on Win7 64 Bit. Though it is a bit strange that an e-mail is only being selected but not opened when I click "Nachricht öffnen". Maybe there should another button "Nachricht auswählen".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3). 

My fault. Sorry.

Thanks for your comment. You're right, the behaviour is a litte bit strange, I'm looking forward changing the behaviour or the button caption. :-) Put this issue on my todo list.

Hi Nick, I need more information to get mailmindr working on all platforms. Plase send me an E-Mail (hello [at] mailmindr [dot] net) with the mailmindr.log and the mailmindr.sqlite files attached (you can find them in your profile folder). Thanks for your help.

Hallo Arnd,
was kann ich tun, wenn "Wiedervorlage setzen" nicht in meinem Kontextmenü steht?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1). 

[BUG] Fehlendes Kontextmenü

Hallo Robin, das ist leider noch ein Bug. Ende September stelle ich eine neue Version online, die unter anderem diesen Umstand beheben wird. Bis dahin müsstest Du dich leider noch etwas gedulden.

[UPDATE] In Version 0.7.2 besteht nun ein neuer Kontextmenü-Eintrag "Wiedervolage setzen".
