About this Add-on
* Before using, make sure you have followed the recommended settings here.
In Gmail's IMAP interface, the IMAP folders correspond to Labels in the Gmail web interface. Some of the labels, namely Spam and Trash, perform special functions behind the scenes. This can cause some unexpected results. For example if you set Thunderbird to move deleted items to the [Gmail]/Trash folder,you will get autosaved drafts and other unwanted items showing up in the Trash and All Mail folders in Gmail.
This plugin modifies Thunderbird to function according to Gmail's rules by doing the following:
- Adds a Trash button that moves a message to the [Gmail]/Trash folder
- Replaces the Junk button with a Spam button that moves junk mail to the [Gmail]/Spam folder
- NEW in v0.5.0! Displays Gmail labels for messages and allows users to delete labels. (Works in TB16 only.)
Thunderbird 17 and higher: If you want working Gmail labels please download from the development channel. Feedback is always appreciated. Note, Oauth2 authentication introduced in TB 38 is not supported yet. Please see this for a workaround.
