Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A couple of gotch-yas:

Unfortunately the regular expressions cannot accept the OR operator (| vertical bar) because it is being used internally to delimit multiple expressions.

When testing new expressions the preferences dialog has to be closed and re-opened for changes to be recognised.

Does it clean subjects in INBOX and/or incoming messages?
If no, it will be awesome to support incoming messages

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What irritates me quite a bit, is sending emails with a subject line cluttered with RE: and FW:'s. I always clean-up the subject line first. Thankfully this extension does it on my behalf and I can carry on to compile the email without the irritation of a kizillion RE: & FW:'s that need to be cleaned up first.

Request multi-byte character support Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a great extentioin!
However, if it can support muti-byte characters, such as Chinese, it's better.

OK. Chinese is supported by regular expression. E,g;
答复: -> \u7B54\u590D:

So, great!

Excellent. Does exactly what I wanted.

Working in the environment of a law office, this is an indispensable add-on.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used the add-on for a long time, am totally satisfied and can also acknowledge that it works on TB5.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Great extension!

Very useful in e-mail threads involving people from countries, where the standard 'Re' and 'Fwd' prefixes are translated into native languages. This extension allows to keep the subject clean without a stack of 'Re' prefixes in different languages.

It seems to be working with Thunderbird 5.0 after adjusting the maxVersion value in install.rdf. No problems noticed so far.

Awesome Plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is awesome ,I've discovered that if you receive a forwarded email from Outlook when using thunderbird by default it keeps the FW: in the email, this means that outlook clients interpret this as a new thread.

Clean Subject removes the FW: (as per outlook) and this means that for people on outlook you get a proper continous thread
and not so many (i.e. NO) broken threads!

Great stuff!!

Cheers

Funktioniert bestens - im Gegensatz zum "Subject Cleaner", der leider auch das aktuell erzeugte Re: entfernt, das eigentlich bleiben sollte.

Does Clean Subject do this...? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Let's say you make a template with the subject line "Hello", then create a message filter to autorespond using the template, a strange thing happens. The autoresponder subject line will not just be "Hello". It will be "Hello (was: XXXX)" where XXXX is the subject line of your autoresponse trigger email. This issue is on Tbird 3.1.6....not sure about previous versions.
Can Clean Subject stop this from happening? Thanks! -greg

The extension looks like a great one but it doesn't work in 3.1.2 The options work but there is no way to invoke it. If someone has got it work please post. The support site no longer works.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2). 

It does work.

Hi gworley,
the extension does work in 3.1.2, too. The extension can't be invoked manually - it'll be invoked automatically when you reply or forward a mail.

Cheers!

Request for additional functionality 2 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ditto Pierre's request in his review on Dec. 9, 2009. I'm a newbie from Eudora (sad loss to the world) and very frustrated by the inability to rewrite subject lines in messages received. I want to be able to go back in 6 months and see at a glance what the "read this!" email was about. (yes, I save messages forever, and it's been a life saver more than once!)

Nachbearbeitung Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Funktioniert tadellos.

Ich war auch auf der Suche nach einem Add-on, das die Betreffzeile bereits erhaltener Emails ändern kann, um die lästigen **** SPAM **** etc. aus korrekt erhaltenen Mails zu entfernen.
In der Beschreibung des Add-ons steht: " "Clean Subject" eignet sich außerdem hervorragend zum Bereinigen diverser Benachrichtigungen wie "[SPAM]" oder "****SPAM****". ". Dies ist unbeabsichtigt irreführend. Trotzdem vielen Dank.

Lovely Add-On :-)

Surprisingly since I use TB3 it doesn't work any more for FORWARDED messages.
If I forward a message the result looks like this:
"Fwd: Re: Test Mail"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1). 

Fixed in 0.4.2

Forwarding for TB3 is fixed in v0.4.2. :)

This is a suggestion for another add-on somewhat along the same lines. I would enjoy being able to modify the subject line of a received message. This was possible in the Pegasus e-mail client and was quite useful.

Best regards. Pierre.

Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The localized reply prefixes in Outlook (e.g., VS: in my language) have been annoying me for a long time but no more. Vielen Dank! The possibility of mangling the forward subject (i.e., removing the brackets...) is a nice bonus.

There seems to be a minor issue: if I modify the settings for the extension, they are not saved until I exit Thunderbird manually. This was somewhat strange (and annoying) as the only reason for my Thunderbird getting closed is killing at shutdown (well, unfortunately it does hang sometimes...). I've noticed this on two WinXP machines. Hence four stars only.

Oh, and one more thing: In the Help tab of the extension settings, the fourth row in the Regular expressions section should refer to parentheses instead of brackets.

Bugfix Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The last two entries on the General tab should be:
(.*) [\[\(]fwd?:( .*)[\]\)] and (.*) [\[\(]was: (.*)[\]\)]

Note the pair of brackets around the second ".*" in each case.

Once you've done this, it works perfectly!
