Awesome add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Exactly what I needed - archiving and message copying to grab things from my IMAP folders and store them locally after they have aged properly :)
Great Add-On Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very useful Add-On! I only would like to set the time lag after that an email is moved/copied/deleted not only in day, but also in hours. Is that possible? Will it be possible in some further release? Thx
Very useful add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I was looking for an addon that would sort my incoming emails to specific folders (depending on some criterias) and this one does it just fine.Many thanks to the developer.
I thought about some additions :) :
* Be able to copy a rule into a new one
* Be able to edit the destination path manually, so there is no need to browse the full tree again
* Add an option so AAA creates automatically a not existing destination subfolder
* Be able to import/export rules and replace some text in the rules

I redact my original rating.
Quote:I set this to archive emails older then 365 days from two inboxes. I have ran this add-on over 4 times and it does make a 2013 and 2014 folder under the archive and it does move some emails. However, I still have emails that are time stamped 2011 and 2012 in my inbox. Why isn't it moving all the emails that are older then 365?
1. You need to check your archive settings in TB so sub folder will be created when archive.
2. You can enable verbose information in this addon's advanced settings and then check the skip reason in error console, I guess you have too much emails and AAA only work on limit number of emails in one run (default 500)
Outstanding archive add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I had initially thought that this add-on's preference setting to disable Thunderbird's animated popup window had gotten rid of all of Thunderbird's annoying, disruptive, stupid, pop-up alerts that Thunderbird displays often when processing filters on incoming emails leaving my only remedy to be to have a constantly running service on my linux machine looking for the alert box to close it. There is always a delay in closing it, it always moves the focus to Thunderbird from other apps and makes even not usable in Thunderbird until the morning inbound mail filtering completes rendering my computer non-usable during that time. I was so happy to have thought that this add-on solved that problem that I contributed a donation to the developer of this add-on. However, unfortunately, I found that that preference option of this add-on did not in fact solve that problematic alert window issue with Thunderbird.
This archive add-on for what it is intended for remains to be outstanding thus far however and still deserves the full 5 stars. I am able to specify folders to be automatically archived and I can have all the sub-folders also archived. The only initial issue I had faced was that the auto-archive was disrupting the morning inbound email fetching when the auto-archive started upon opening Thunderbird (email fetch also starts when I open the app), but that was easily solved by just increasing the number of seconds for auto-archive to start running. I gave myself plenty of buffer by setting it to 30 minutes.

I use this this extention from some months. My experience with Thunderbird improved so much I think if I hadn't this addon I would be lost.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Very nicely done and but for one bug (?) not usable for me.
The problem: I get a mail from "CASHCONTROL" when I use my credit card. So I have a lot of mail from the same sender with the same subject. Only thing different: the date. If I tell AAA to "move" the mail from the in-box, it tells me, that the mail already exists and will not move it. Technically the mail does not exist, as the date is different!!!! Can't see a way around this!
How to solve: When checking for duplicates, the date has to be checked also! It is only a duplicate, if it has the same date/time stamp.
Or: Maybe allow a move without checking for duplicate?
5 stars and surely my favorite tool for THUNDER once this is "fixed"!!!
AAA checks for duplicates using Message-ID, not subject or date or anything else. Message-ID as it's name is the identification of the message, normally it contains date & sequential ID so it's should be different for messages you got from CASHCONTROL.
So you can verify by either:
1. select the messages and press Ctrl+u, then search Message-ID in the message source, to see if they have the same Message-ID
2. in version 0.6, If you enable 'Show verbose information in error console' of the addon's advanced settings, then you can know in detail for why the message was not moved, eg, duplicate, unread, has tags etc
Finally, there was already an option for this in advanced settings, you can choose 'delete' for "When doing 'move' and the same messages already exists in dest folder...'
Awesome "Awesome Auto Archive" Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It works very well, scheduling and all, except for a few very small details:
- What does your program do if I select "0" for "Age" ? I hoped it would execute the rule, even on mails that just came in. I'm not sure if it does.
- The reason I'm not sure is because I have created a rule for every account (I have a few dozen accounts in TB) that should move alll mails in the Spam/Junk/Bulk folders to my spamassin public Baeysian Learning Spam folder at the moment they arrive. These don't work. So I'm not sure if it's because age = 0 or if it's because your add-on does not check Spam/Junk/Bulk folders.
I have a mixture of Gmail, Yahoo and SMTP accounts, all IMAP, all configured to download everything to my PC.
All rules work as hoped, except for those SPAM folders.
Can you give me a hint? Thanks in advance.
Could you send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a screen-shoot of your settings?
The Spam folder shouldn't be filter out if the are the source folder in option dialog.
It's not because of 'age=0', just because I filter out Spam/Junk/Bulk folders automatically unless the action is 'delete'. As I thought 'copy/move/archive' spam emails was meaningless, which seems not correct for your case.
I'll change it in next release, maybe adding another option.
Great idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I gave 5 stars for the idea.
Unfortunately I still use TB17 so I like to ask you to reimplement support for TB17 again.
Many thanks in advance.
You need upgrade to newer version to use the latest version of this addon, it's easier than me to make it compatible as some of the new features requires new TB.
Also TB31 will comes out in 2~3 months.

Very useful addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon very useful and helps to archive messages with prescribed rules.Thanks for the developer.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I was so impressed that I contributed some cash.
It does exactly what I wanted, allowing me to choose between copying and archiving from my IMAP account to my local folders.
In my case I choose to copy messages as a form of backup. There are great filters to allow you to select the age of items etc. It all works great.
Thanks to the developer for a great addon!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It works perfectly! Thank you!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Version 0.3 works OK :)
But I cannot understand - Options - Advanced Settings - Time Settings...
You're not the only only who can't understand the option dialog :-)
I should make it more clear by providing tooltips or help pages, however I need more time for that.
In short, the time settings are control when this addon will activate.
"THE" AUTOARCHIVE EXTENSION FOR THUNDERBIRD Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really Useful Extension even being a young one at this point.
[This is the auto-archive functionality that Thunderbird should have built-in (in its core C++ code).
I cannot understand why a great app as Thunderbird doesn't have built-in auto-archiving after so many years! (???)
If at some time Thunderbird developers consider giving TB this functionality they should take good note of the ideas in this nice project. ]
Even the sense of humor (with the sleeping icon) is awesome
-Very communicative developer-
-Fast progressing and very frequent improvements
-A very configurable (tunable) extension that even allows you to create multiple rules, set intervals, Idle time, limits
In one word: "Awesome" as the series name of extensions/plugins from this developer.
Really good and promising...
a little hope of automated message archival,.... finally!
