Excellent (but prompts can be annoying) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Absolute Superb Addon! Thank you. Would it be possible to add a configuration settings (in configuration editor or otherwise) to ensure vacuum / startup jobs (i.e. sqlite vacuuming) do not give confirmation prompts (default to yes) please? That would be very very useful - I can leave the vacuuming on without having to select 'yes' multiple times when I start thunderbird.

Very Useful - Any way to get around greylisting? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is extremely useful - especially now that you can copy the results to the console. The only problem is trying to validate addresses which are greylisting - is there any way to do so?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.3). 

Please elaborate...

You can drop me an email by clicking on my name on the ThunderPlunger page here. Please do so and we can discuss what is happening. I may have been thinking about this already due to another user's comments.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although I only used the email verification - it's awesome, because this is so necessary for all address books on this planet! Sure it's not 100%, but I randomly cross-checked it and had great results! On big drawback with this great tool is though that you can't sort for columns when using the bulk email verifier - would be great if you could add that functionality! That way it's easier to double check the invalid emails or just remove the checkmark on delete when it's just a greylisting or a valid address! Thanks!

Click my name on the addon's page to get at my email address. I wonder if it isn't enough simply to sort the results prior to presentation rather than having the user trigger this interactively. Would like your opinion and to beta test the results. Thanks

Easy way to clean database Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension gives the user what might be the easiest way to compress the SQLite files, which really can improve TB's speed.
<br>There's currently a misleading bug with a function that warns the user of large folder sizes (default 200mb). There's no indication that the warning is caused by this extension, but rather it looks like a core feature of TB. Would have filed it as a bug on Mozdev, but can't.

Edited review, based in the amazingly fast response from the dev! Wow!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.0). 

Fixed!

You are certainly correct about the problem with the dialog's title not being clear enough. This is remedied in version 2.8 which is available on this site. However, automatic downloads of the new version are not happening correctly at this time. I am looking into that. Meanwhile, find and download version 2.8 or higher by clicking the version information link at the bottom of the addon's page then click the complete version history link that is shown below that. Enjoy!

A good cleanup tool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works and it works well! Sometimes tech is like owning a car. Every now and then you have to get the oil changed for it to work properly...

Please Use Bug Reporting System at the addon's Website

Thanks for your note. Please file a bug on this using the bug reporting system on the addon's website. That way we can carry on a conversation and I can get more details.

PS - on my XP/TB5 machine Task Manager shows, just after TB start up 76,236K with the addon enabled and 67,084K with it disabled. So something is (a) making your TB install considerably larger than mine to begin with and (b) ThunderPlunger itself is unlikely to be the sole culprit here. So please file a bug report or send email (click on my name on the addon's page to do so) and we can explore the situation in more depth. This is just not the place to do it.

Excellent add-on. Please update for TB5.

I have a beta that supports TB5 ready. Contact me (my email can be had by clicking my name under the addon's name on addon's page here). Thanks

IMAP account support needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Could you please add IMAP accounts support to "Clean Accounts" option?Thanks for your work

EDIT: oops, I found it and it works... sorry!

I was wondering how much work would be involved to enhance the "Clean Accounts" processing to also check the Thunderbird PREFS.JS file for orphaned mail.identity.idX and mail.server.serverX entries.

When I look at my Thunderbird PREFS.JS file there are more entries than I have email accounts. I have removed some email accounts and servers over the years.

Thanks

THANKS A LOT INDEED !
The horrible automatic account creation wizard in TB3 has made a really big mess in my accounts. I've managed to clean everything using the configuration editor to reinitiate every new entry and to clean with your addon. THANK YOU AGAIN !

Sorry for the delay. Not my highest priority in life. But it is now working and offers a new TB3-specific function. Check it out!

This was a really useful add-on until TB 3.0 came out. Only giving it two stars because it hasn't been upgraded in over a year. I hope we'll get an upgrade soon. Thanks!

Just for the paranoic: The "Validate Email Addresses" can still harvest email adresses (or anyone inbetween, should the connection not be properly encrypted). Only because he claims that some specific PHP code runs on the server, it doesn't mean it has to run there.

Other than that: Great Add-On.

Absolutely brilliant. This achieved in seconds what it used to took me days to do manually (sorting invalid e-mails out of a club mailing list).
Unfortunately it does not work in TB 3.0 (yet) so I'm thinking of going back to thunderbird 2.

Needs updating Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I recently started seeing phantom messages on several newsgroups but the current version 1.2 isn't clearing then in TB version 2.0.0.22 (20090605)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Exactly what I needed. Thunderbird kept slowing to a crawl because one of my Linux newsgroups kept reverting to 61,000 (or so) messages unread. I'm not sure which feature of ThunderPlunger did the job ("Remove Phantom Messages" or "Clear All Expired") because I tried both -- but now the problem is completely cleared. I haven't checked out all of ThunderPlunger's features, but it's definitely worth installing, just for the two mentioned. Thanks!
