Does not work at all. Do not install Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon is "bricked" at the moment.
Not particularly sophisticated Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The extension works as advertised with Thunderbird 38.1.0, though it's not particularly convenient to set up or use. It adds a "Report" command to the list of available toolbar buttons, but the user must add it to the toolbar manually. Furthermore, there doesn't seem to be any way of invoking the "Report" command from the context menu, the pull-down menus, the message window, or a keyboard shortcut.
The extension can be configured to send spam reports to various agencies, including SpamCop. However, the SpamCop preferences dialog is completely nonsensical if you want to use the "Quick Reporting" feature of SpamCop. (The checkbox enabling this feature is mislabelled as "Quick SpamCop", and selecting it changes the semantics of the "Your SpamCop ID" input field in a way that the user cannot possibly anticipate. It took me some trial and error to figure out its new purpose.)
As for the core functionality, all the "Report" button seems to do is to open a pre-filled composer window containing the offending spam message as an attachment to a poorly formatted cover letter. The user must still manually send the report. It would be so much more convenient if the extension provided one-click reporting. As-is, it is hardly more useful than manually forwarding a message.
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Excellent, makes using SpamCop much easier.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.20.0).

Fails to work with Thunderbird 31.3.0. Support channels yielded zero response.
I'd love to do my part and report spam, but it has to be quick and easy.
The lack of reply was discouraging.

New update not so good. Habul no longer deletes the selected emails when that option is selected. You have to delete them manually. Seems to report them just fine. Worked fine before the last update.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.18.0).

Seems to work well. But the "Report" Button did not load into my toolbar. I had to place it manually.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.0).
Great software but not working for latest Thunderbird release Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have contributed and use this software extensively. It has been great so far and I am sure that as soon as it is updated for the ever rapidly changing Thunderbird (currently at v24) that it will work just as well again.
Problem: If you have more than one junk message selected Habul will contact your e-mail server but then it won't send the e-mails. Instead, it just times out. I run an e-mail server and I just finished tracking down this problem. Unfortunately - I don't work on the code. :-/ But I did watch it as it contacted my server, and then just sat there. I tried the fix (ie: v1.10) but that did not help.
it works fine for me with v24 as well.
Please report problems in the bug tracker in the SourceForge project.
Regarding your specific issue: please note that Thunderbird sends the email, not HabuL -> see thunderbird logs
Barely functional but great idea Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Unfortunately submitting an entire folder is not a good idea. Services like SpamCop, for example, only accept emails which are a maximum of two days old. I've not found an option to use this addon in order to submit emails one by one, should such an option be added it will receive a five star review. Until then this app is not usable.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.0).
thanks Aleksandr for your valuable feedback, however I do not accept bug reports/feature requests as reviews - and nonetheless I don't take any action in exchange of five stars reviews

Still works with TB 17.0 but no longer moves the reported email from Junk to Trash. Any plans for an update?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.0).
yes, this will be fixed in next release

Excellent extension, works until TB 13. Thanks for the fix, Ythan, now it works perfectly with TB 14 too.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10.0).
I have recently uploaded a fixed version, but it's pending review:
Easily fixed for Thunderbird 14 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I was sad to see that this no longer works in Thunderbird 14 and it doesn't seem to be actively maintained. Fortunately, it was an easy fix. You can get a compatible version at http://www.shroomery.org/ythan/habul_fixed.xpi.
*Please note that I am not the original author of this addon and this is an unofficial release!* If you are uncomfortable installing an addon which has not been reviewed by Mozilla, you can make the fix yourself. Just add the following to line 71 in habul.js:
var msgComposeService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/messengercompose;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIMsgComposeService);
Thank you Ythan, I have applied the fix and the new version is now pending review:
Doesn't work properly in v14b and v15a Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I manually placed the "Report" icon on the toolbar. Pressing it while selecting a message it says "No message are marked as Junk in the current folder".
Marking a message as Junk moves it into the Junk folder. If I use the "Report" button while in the "Junk" folder, it doesn't do anything. If I move a junk-marked message back to inbox so that I can use the report button (very convoluted) then it pauses for half a second and then nothing. I don't see any confirmation, I'm not sure it did report anything. I did so with 20 junk messages and it spent just as much time in that "pause" state as it did when there was only 1 junk marked message. Looks suspicious.
This extension should work on the messages that are highlighted (too), rather than only on those marked as junk; it should mark as junk at the same time to save clicks or awkward maneuvers (having to get all massages from junk into inbox and use the button again).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you want it to work for new versions of Thunderbird, go to View>Toolbars>Customize and drag the "Report" button to a toolbar.
Works great. Thanks!
Doesn't work anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I would've given 4 stars, as my only problem was that it sent spam as attachments, but the report button is broken on Thunderbird 14.0a2.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10.0).
Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you, legolas558, for answering my question. I'm now reporting them in full!
Making it this easy to report spam is the only realistic way to get people to do it.
spam e-mail header needed for fighting spam Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Reading the report sent to myself with Thunderbird 10.0.2 before sending to spamcop I saw no e-mail header of the reported html e-mail in the source of the attachment, but I saved the attachment to a folder, open it from there with windows notepad, saw the header included and felt gratitude.
The first impression that the e-mail header of the spam is not included in the report, was appearantly caused by Thunderbird not displaying the source of an e-mail as attachment including the e-mail header.
Good! Please allow zipped reports Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Ok, good extension!
I used Knujon in the past, and now i'm using thiss one.
But.. I've a problem. My provider blocks my ADSL account because it "detect" that some spam is going out from my email client. But i'm only reporting the spam to kunjon, spamcop and so on..
That's not a good thing!
Can you change the extension code to solve this issue?
Ex.: maybe compressed files with inside spam emails are not blocked by providers filters?! Is it possible to allow a compressed attachment for the email reports?
(I'm sorry for my poor english..)

It's still working? Nothing happens when I click on Report ... This is normal?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1).
Update to 1.9.10
The recently released 1.9.10 will work also with current Thunderbird/SeaMonkey
still not working correctly Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This add on did not work for me in 5 0, when i entered my spamcop address it would add more info to the forwarding address - however the authors reply below helped fix that.
One other issue seems to be that you can only report mails already flagged as spam, yet i access yahoo mail via imap and when you flag a mail as spam it doesnt get put into a junk folder, it gets deleted - so theres no way to report those.
It should be possibe to report any email thats actually selected.
Just enter the SpamCop id, not the full email address
Good extension- funny name! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It is great but why the funny name? Why not rename it to something like Spamreporter or something like that?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1).
About the name
It's a heritage of the original addon name, but thanks for the advice...I will evaluate it
