very good- essential add on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Taking time to review because it's a really needed tool to manage email. I've avoided using filters in the past because of having to dig into folders but this makes it easy again. So simple yet apparently overlooked by other developers. Surprised I haven't seen this before. I now have a core of essential thunderbird add ons and this is one of them. I may need to donate to alex and alex given the headaches this solves in organizing complex directories and inboxes. I'm still testing but initial impressions are quite good.

Oh no! Why haven't I found that great tool earlier?! Thank you very much for your excellent work! :-)

time- and finger-saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I appreciate the keyboard shortcuts. They let me navigate among folders quickly without needing the mouse.

I'm in love with Quickfolders Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use my email in a very organize fashion and I also keep current project correspondence in individual (sub)folders. I keep all my folders in the normal Thunderbird column on the left, but this is not enough. Quickfolders lets me get to my most commonly-used folders immediately. Quickfolders also lets me file my correspondence in regularly-used project folders. And in the latest version (1.9.8 which the developer is letting me try) I can now access important Thunderbird commands (like "create subfolder" "delete folder" "rename folder", etc.) from the Quickfolders row. Basically, Quickfolders is an essential time and labor saver that multiplies Thunderbird's power by an order of magnitude. A must-have and fun to use, too!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.7.3). 

Meine praktischte TB Erweiterung... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Quickfolders ist für meine tägliche Arbeit extrem praktisch und eigentlich unverzichtbar. Wenn man seine Mails in viele Ordner (und Unterordner) sortiert hat und die meisten davon nur selten braucht, macht man sich einfach entsprechende Tabs und zieht die Mails vom Posteingang dahin - ein sehr kurzer Maus-Weg und viel schneller als alle anderen Methoden, die ich kenne. Unterordner werden automatisch aufgeklappt, so kann man auch schnell auf komplexere Ordnerstrukturen zugreifen. Einige weitere praktische Funkionen sind über Kontextmenüs erreichbar und zudem kann man vieles (z.B. Verschieben) über hotkeys machen - schneller kann man seine Mails nicht sortieren (es sei denn man kann es über Filter automatisieren, aber das geht ja oft leider nicht oder nur zu 90% - dann ist QuickFolders eine gute Ergänzung). Genau wie das Verschieben kann man natürlich auch Ordner schnell öffnen etc.

Für alle Leute, die viele Mails bekommen und in viele Ordner sortieren müssen die ideale Thunderbird Erweiterung!

Sehr praktische Erweiterung für Leute mit vielen Ordnern, die ein wenig mehr Übersicht brauchen. Seit dem letzten Bugfix funktioniert bei mir auch die alphabetische Sortierung der Unterordner bei Rechtsklick und Drag'n'Drop (ein Problem, das offenbar nur bei speziellen Konstellationen auftrat).

Geniale Erweiterung, viel besser als die eingebauten Tabs in Thunderbird, die ich daher deaktiviert habe.

Die Tastenkombination zum Wechsel zwischen den Tabs scheint allerdings in Thunderbird 3 nicht zu funktionieren.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1). 

stimmt :)

.. allerding wurde QuickFolders auch nicht zu diesem Zweck konzipiert. z.B. gibt es bis jetzt noch keinen Support für Lightning daher wäre ich mit der Aussage "ersetzt Tabs in TB3" eher vorsichtig.

I found and started using QF after "Additional folders view" no longer worked in TB 3.0.1. QF works very nicely, but somehow its tabs and those now in TB3 seem a bit clunky together, sometimes they seem to get in each other's way. Eg/zB I have 6 QF tabs and at the moment 4 TB tabs showing. When I click on one of the QF tabs, then it uses the currently selected TB tab for that, which I may have wanted to keep as it was.

Maybe someday an option to cause a click on a QF tab to open a new TB tab, especially when one of the QF tabs is pointing to a folder with many subfolders, where I right-click (very nice!) to select the folder I want. Or maybe a click on a QF tab causes a new TB tab to open if and only if the associated folder isn't already open in a TB tab? Otherwise go to the TB tab which already has that folder open. Or something like that. Just some random ravings.

Thanks for a great add-on, Bob

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.5.3). 

by design :)

Hi Bob, thanks for the detailed review. I must say I have thought very long and hard about how QuickFolders interacts with the new tabbed model in Thunderbird; clicking a QF tab I would always expect to "jump me to the folder" no matter where I am. But instead of opening a new tab every time and possibly creating mayhem on an already busy User Interface I opted to use either the current tab (if that displayed mail) or the first folder tab (if current tab was not a mail tab).

However - version 1.8.8 supports opening a new mail Tab when you hold down the CTRL key while clicking the Quickfolder or one of the sub menus.

Excellent Add-in, use it all the time. Any chance it can be made compatible with Postbox/1.1.0b2 ?

....thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.4). 

yes it is already!

Yes it is already compatible with Postbox 1.1.* - just download version 1.6.4. It hasn't been reviewed yet but its fully functional. You can also use it with SeaMonkey 2.0.

For a download link, head over to the quickfolders homepage, Installation:
http://quickfolders.mozdev.org/installation.html
then simply click on the "Download latest Releases" link. Any problems, just send me an email!

PS: All extension reviews are done by volunteers - I have no influence on how quickly its done. I think at the moment there is a big backlog of reviews due to the upcoming Firefox 3.6. I have released 4 new versions since 1.5.2pre - follow the link above to see them all.

Hi KonstantinDK

I don't quite understand what you mean - you can always contact me by using Quickfolders/Options - Support Tab. You request features viz bugzilla, the forum or easiest email me directly from that page. I answer all emails. Thanks for the high rating!
