Very useful add-on by idea Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Useful and necessary addon for those who need more control and flexibility handling its emails but there is room for improvement in its execution.
It's stuck at the bottom of the menu. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The "Notes" menu item is stuck at the bottom of the context menu and can't be moved by Menu Wizard.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
Good but does not work with Search Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I wanted to add text to emails so that they would show up in the search in future (like tags in Firefox bookmarks). This addon lets you add notes in an attractive and sensible way but is not factored into the search engine.
There is no box alongside the other buttons (Sender, Recipients, Subject, Body) which would be idea really.
Otherwise it's great. It appears as a panel at the bottom of the message and there is the ability to change the height of the box if so wished. It works well with TB 38.5.0.
no search through feature Rated 3 out of 5 stars
thanks to the author for the great addon.
Unfortunately, the notes are not serchable. So you cannot search trough yours notes. Is there any other addon with this ability?
Commercial link page not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Notes are not Searched Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I made some test notes and tried to use the Search function. It did not find any of them.
Also, it appears that only one note per message is allowed. If a note already exists on a message and you try to add a new one, the existing one is deleted.

This add-on does exactly what I needed! Thank you so much for providing it. I love being able to jot a note quickly and easily; see the date and time of the note, and the note text, clearly and easily at the bottom of my email message; and display the Note status of my emails in the Columns of the Thunderbird folder.
Again, thank you! Highly recommended!

Auto-tags do not work. Search do not work.
Nice ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very handy, thank you.
Should you plan a next version, I see two directions, provided this does not restrict the performances of Thunderbird : display the note as a tooltip from the icon in the list ; propose to attach a note to a part of a mail (imagine you received a list of ads, you could want to remember which ones you answered to).
Superbe addon a "must have" Rated 5 out of 5 stars
What a great addon!!!!. In very little time since I discovered it, it became an indispensable tool. A must have. (as a minor detail consider changing the show/hide/add not icon in the headers of the message pane... it looks as made in the early 80')This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52).

Seems like great idea. However, the plugin do not have support for other than English language - it is OK to write a note but it affects encoding of email itself.
Secondly, the plugin makes my Thunderbird very slow - after removing, everything was OK again.
Good idea but needs some more work.
Love it!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Loving this add-on! keeps track of my personal notes, i can search for old notes. this is really useful for me.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206).
Incompatible with Conversations Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I can't imagine not using the conversations preview, so discovering in this plugins support forum that the maintainer has said [conversations] "changes the Thunderbird too much" and essentially writes it off as a possibility leaves me pretty disappointed, it could have been a nice utility. Instead, uninstalled because it's essentially unusable.
-- EDIT --
Thanks for your response alehro, I've posted on your forum with my reasoning. For others, he's correct that due to Conversations not being standard, it isn't really his fault that they're incompatible. That said, he's willing to listen, so for others like me who believe both are productivity tools and would marry very well, please leave him support for the effort on his forum!
Request to write plugin for Conversations accepted
Here is what Conversations' developers write about that:
"Extension XXX does not work with Thunderbird Conversations.
As conversations is replacing the message reader, extensions that interact with the message reader won't work with Conversations. The good news is, I've taken this case into account and other addons can write "plugins" to interact with conversations if it's installed. I blogged about it. Please send an email to your favorite addon author, and point them to this blog post. Some cool addon authors have written plugins for Conversations: Lightning and Enigmail are compatible with Conversations!"
So, do you want me to write an add-on for Conversations? Please explain your position on the aforementioned forum. (Unfortunately if you simply modify your message here I won't receive notification)
Should be built into tb core Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I have always wanted this function, simple add short (or long) note to any email. I have a lot of emails with same sender and subject (actual content is in attachment), it's really hard to find certain message because search can't go into attacments. This is almost perfect but is there a way to show notes as one column in message list? I mean note itself not just icon.
Does the search dig into these notes, if not could that be done?
great w/ found bug. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
at first I was mad and thought the plugin sucked, I found a bug though, and am working around it lol... to redo this bug, cntl+f9 to make a note, and type short word "ha" new line "ha" new line "ha" you'll notice a lag, the windows 7's application tab appears to close and reopen. I thought this bug was making this note program unusable, to use the plugin, you have to manually make the text box larger than 3 lines, else it'll keep repeating the lag for each letter you type.
Great plugin, but please adjust the plugin to recognize large text boxes
Thank you for reporting. I'm working on it. You may subscribe to discussion here: http://mnpforum.alehro00.com/slow-editing-tp4638986.html
Also I would like to know why you were mad at first. Is it because of the lag or is there something else which may cause new users to dislike it?
Please post any follow ups on the forum.If you will just edit the review I won't receive notification.

I love this addon and can't imagine being without it anymore. However I have a suggestion concerning the graphics for the notes: Could you get rid of that ugly gray background that's behind the various Ns? Making it transparent makes that column so much neater looking. And also just eliminate the - graphic that fills the space for every email if there's no note. Only seeing the N when there is a note makes it easier to sort through to find the notes, and just gets rid of unnecessary clutter. I actually edit those files each time there's an upgrade with those fixes. It gives it a much nicer look.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11).
Thanks for the review. I'm going to release a new version with nice icons in a couple of weeks. Also there will be automatic tagging of messages with notes, so it will be much easier to find them.

Great addon. I use Thunderbird Conversations addon, so is it possible to make it compatible with it ?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
I'm sorry but it is impossible. The amount of work to make them compatible is comparable to the amount of work to merge these addons into one single addon. Here is more detailed explanation: http://mnpforum.alehro00.com/Message-Notes-Plus-for-Thunderbird-1-2-2-9-td4337293.html
Great Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It quickly became a natural and must-have add on for me. I use TB at home and Outlook at work - Outlook seems crippled without this functionality.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124).
About notes for Outlook
You may try to google 'outlook notes for email'. It gives at least 3 solutions about notes for Outlook .
