DKIM Verifier

Works, albeit it misses a point Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Reading the Authentication-Results header should be the normal behavior, since DKIM was designed to be verified by the receiving server. However, each server should have its own settings and policies (for example, some servers don't bother writing results for failed signatures, since they should be treated as non-existing.)

This add-on highlights those results by reporting them on the message window, along with From:, Subject:, and To:. Kudos for that!

Doing the crypto is good for servers that don't do it themselves, and for manual action. Such late verification may fail for old messages.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.6). 

Correct Identity

Wrong identity for mailing lists Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Somehow it always chooses the wrong identity from a mailing list, and it must be changed manually.

Also, it doesn't let new identities to be created on the fly.

Toggle Word Wrap

Not good for sporadic usage of reflowing Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Toggling word wrap makes it easier to avoid reflowing text in Thunderbird composition window. It is a shortcut to reset/set the option "wrap plain text messages at xxx characters". However, people who usually keep that value at 0 (or 999) and sporadically would like to reflow text, will still have to go through the long way, as there is no way to set it to disabled by default. That is for version 1.0.

This extension doesn't help wrapping a part of text while still leaving some long lines in another paragraph.

Perhaps if edit/rewrap worked in all cases this extension would not be necessary.
