Doesn't Work For me Thunderbird24.6.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea. I installed it but when I sent a test email to my Thunderbird adress there was nothing in my sent mail folder and no emails were sent to the adresses I set the addon to forward the emails to. Why isn't it working??

Sent messages not always saved

Redirected messages are only saved when you save sent messages for the account with which you redirect. This is also shown as a tooltip in the options dialogue of Mail Redirect.
You can check your account settings under Tools → Account Settings → <account> → Copies & Folders.

Also not all ISP's save redirected messages. Especially Gmail doesn't do this, because the redirected message has the same Message-ID as the original message and Gmail doesn't allow more than one message withe the same Message-ID. If you want to see your redirected or other sent messages with Gmail, you'll have to configure your account to store the sent messages under your Local Folders…

With the information you filed in the review I cannot tell why the redirected message wasn't received at the address you send it to. Please file a ticket on the website or send a mail to the mailing list to get more support on this issue.

It's FIXED!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So pleased to see that this addon is now working again. I am on version 24 and it's great to have this addon back. I've used it for years and it was upsetting when release 17 broke it. THANKS so much for fixing it. .

More on lists Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have this extension installed since ever ;-)
But I was never successfull with redirect of messages to lists and unfortunately I have many of them being sysadmin :-(.
I followed the suggestion of the developer a couple of post below to put the name of the list in between <> but in my hands it doesn't work. A message of error appears.
BTW today an update to mail reedirect version 7.7 was installed automatically on my computer (with icons fitting the TB standard theme). The test reported above was done also with this last version whichi is not present neither here nor in the usual developer page.
Wher is located now? TIA

MailRedirect website moved

Hi,I'm sorry but I moved the website to mailredirect.sourceforge.net just before the latest update and had forgotten to update it here. This is now fixed, so you should be able to find the mailredirect website with the latest version again...Can you please file a bug or mail the error you get when sending to a list to me?Onno

Bin Begeistert! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hallo,
ich bin sehr begeistert über dieses Add-On.
Es macht das Arbeiten doch um einiges einfacher.

Was ich mir an diesem Programm noch wünschen würde, wenn ich im Thunderbird eine Symbolleiste erstellen könnte, in der ich mir immer wiederkehrende Empfänger für die Umleitung anlegen könnte mit Löschfunktion.
Ich wähle also die Nachricht aus und klicke in der Leiste nur auf das entsprechende Symbol oder Bezeichnung. Die Nachricht geht in den Postausgang und wird im Posteingang gelöscht. :-)

Viele Grüße

How about Lists Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great product we use daily now that we have switched to Thunderbird. But we are unable to enter a list nickname into the redirect handler. We can enter nicknames of individuals and redirect the e-mail, but we cannot enter a list name (eg Staff - which has a list of all staff e-mails). It wants the staff list to turn into a simple e-mail address. We are using 0.7.6.12 on TB 17.0.5. The list nickname works just fine in composing a regular email. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Put list name in brackets

Hi Dale,
There was an error with lists only being recognized when they were in the primary address book (Personal Address Book). This should be fixed in version 0.7.8...

Not working in V20 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Also disappointed to find that this remarkably useful add-on seems to have been broken by the latest Beta V20.0b1 and that the developers seem no longer to be reachable :(

Working on it

Hi Edwin,
I'm aware of both MailRedirect being broken on Thunderbird Beta and the mailing list on mozdev being down. I'm working on a new version that is compatible with Thunderbird 20+ and I think I will move the mailing list to sourceforge, but I have problems migrating the history and subscribed users, since the page on mozdev is down.
Please have a bit of patience, since I was in the middle of rewriting MailRedirect and adding some new features, so I can't release an updated version just now.
If you really, really want it, you can mail me (Onno Ekker) and I can send you a snapshot ("nightly") of the current development version...

One of my favorites! But ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It continues to baffle my why this functionality is not included in Thunderbird (or any email client) by default, as I consider this one of the most powerful and highly useful tools for managing email. Being able to redirect--rather than forward--an email not only eliminates the formatting mess that forwarding sometimes makes, but more importantly enables me to "step out" of the middle of conversations where it is useful and appropriate to do so.

Look on extension's home page

Sorry, but the extension on addons.mozilla.org isn't updated anymore. Go to the extension's homepage and download Mail Redirect from the Installation page.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension has contributed to my company's (almost) total migration away from mutt and all other command-line Unix-like clients to Thunderbird. It is one of the single biggest productivity improvements in Thunderbird.

I remain baffled that redirect/bounce is not an integral feature of Thunderbird--but I _am_ an email dinosaur who started with electronic mail on an IBM mainframe in 1980. I don't want to have to re-write tens of mail handlers on six different platforms to parse MIME attachments (or worse, try to find the old message boundaries in non-MIME-attachment forwarded messages).

The _only_ drawback to Mail Redirect is that it doesn't install in new Thunderbird 15.0.1 installations. My older, upgraded Thunderbird clients automagically update to 0.7.6.11--but a fresh 15.0.1 installation claims the add-on is not compatible with 15.0.1.

"Incompatible with version 13.0.1"? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm giving Mail Redirect 5 stars for my experience with it on my laptop, where it runs like a dream. I have been unable to install it on my PC, however.

Both the laptop and PC have the latest Thunderbird, 13.0.1, auto-updated. When I try to install Mail Redirect on T'bird on the PC, however, it says "Mail Redirect could not be installed because it is incompatible with version 13.0.1."

The only difference between these two machines is that my laptop is running Vista Home and the PC is running WinXP Pro SP3.

If the problem is the operating system, why doesn't it say so? This is really frustrating.

Please advise.

Hi Bluejay99,
Thanks you very much for your 5 stars!
Mail Redirect version 0.7.6.11 should work independent of your OS for Thunderbird up to version 14.*. Are you sure you right-clicked the .xpi and downloaded it instead of left-clicking it and installing it in Firefox? You can also drag the .xpi directly from Firefox to Thunderbird's Add-ons Manager tab.
Hope that helps,
Onno

while add-on installs without any problems and appears in the GUI there is a problem - the email that was selected for redirection is not displayed in the add-on's window.
the relevant part of jsconsole.log says:

21. [JavaScript Error: "identityElement.selectedItem is undefined" {file: "chrome://mailredirect/content/mailredirect-compose.js" line: 599}]
22. clearing mstate

Wonderful addon for former Eudora users who are always in a hurry.

@leilabd and @electronutsie: Use a combination of MailRedirect and SendFilter. Works perfectly for me.

I find this addon very useful and was really pleased to see the links to the updated version for use with Thunderbird 7. In answer to the query about using the addon in a filter, I don't know if you can use Mail Redirect but there is another addon that will do a redirect in a filter, it's called RedirectFilter.

Get it from http://mailredirect.mozdev.org/installation.html - mailredirect.xpi works with Thunderbird 7 but don't open it; instead:
Download it to your disk (right click on mouse to save on hdd).
Then open Thunderbird and its Add-On-Manager. Then click on downloaded xpi.- file on your disk just once and put/moove it via drag & drop to the Add-On-Manager TB. That was the only way it worked for me using TB 7.xx !
