Very Useful Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
By far one of the most useful addons I've installed to my TB client. I've played around with a few filter addons before finding this one and I'm so glad I eventually reached this.
It makes my life so much easier! Not only with setting the filters up, but the ability to copy/paste filters from one account to another is so handy and something I really felt was missing from the standard version of TB. I use multiple email accounts, and some of those accounts both use things like twitter (personal account and work account), so now I just need to set the filters up for one and copy it to the other account. :)
thanks for your great review. Keep your eyes posted for version 2.3.1 which has improvements on the way special conditions are copied over: see https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=25686 for some prereleases

This would be a nice useful addon, but there is a basic flaw: why trigger the filters only when moving to folders?Not all filters are meant for that! I, for one, have filters that do not move the messages at all, but simply tag them based on the sender or recipient. So, instead of triggering the filter automatically on move, how about we can trigger it manually whenever we feel like it?Right now to make some use of this addon I have to "pretend" i'm moving a message, only to trigger the filtering, later putting the message back.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1).
try the context menu
Q: how about we can trigger it manually whenever we feel like it?A: There is a way to start the wizard by right-clicking a mail and selecting QuickFilters: create filter from message. Unfortunately the free mozdev.org servers which hosts the documentation are down at the moment, but you can always contact me directly for feature requests like this.
I am planning a tag-watch feature for a future version if the Addon can get a few more users and there is sufficient interest in new features.
Single configuration for all accounts? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have several email accounts but I don't need distinct message filters for them. This is how I did it:
When I need to add/change a rule, I edit "my own version" of msgFilterRules.dat by hand, which is symlinked by all email accounts, effectively making the configuration global to all accounts.
I'd like to ask you if quickFilters is able to make definitions "global" to all email accounts.
[ I rated 5 stars since apparently it does much, much more than what I need. I've never used it, actually. ]
Thanks a lot,

This is almost exactly what I have been wanting in Thunderbird ever since I started using Thunderbird. It even has exactly the built-in filters that I was looking for, but it took a while of reading through the documentation to figure out which filter name goes with which behaviorThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0).
thanks for 5*
I see you edited your review :-) if you have suggestions for new filter templates I am very interested in hearing about them at the support site.
quickFilters is a relatively "young" add-on (with only 4500 users) so there is scope for growing it if there is interest; it just takes time and a little back & forth with the users. You can make feature requests at the official site, here:
and/or definitely contact me via the email link on these pages! I do what I can t improve it.The default filter is geared towards filtering "conversation-type" mail, which is usually alwyas between the user and another person, hence it looks for "from" and "To"; this makes even more sense when used with "Copy Sent to Current" and you want to tidy up an inbox which is full of conversations with a contact.

Cool tool! Saves tons of time.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8).
great; finally somebody noticed! :-) There will be more great things to come, provided more users install it.
Works well and developer is VERY responsive Rated 5 out of 5 stars
quickFilters is both a great idea and well executed. The developer, Axel, keeps up with Thunderbird versions and really seems to care about his product. I donated because this is the kind of extension that makes me happy I got off of Outlook years ago. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1).

Cukup membantu untuk "mengkelompokan" email sesuai kebutuhan. Memudahkan kita untuk cek atau mencari email yang kita perlukan.
Filter email jadi lebih mudah....
Outstanding Rated 5 out of 5 stars
A restart of Thunderbird makes the fault I mentioned before go away. So it works without flaws if a new subfolder is created, then TB is restarted before trying to use QuickFilters to drag message into the new subfolder of a QuickFolder tab.
I know it's made to drag into the folders pane of TB instead of the tabs of QuickFolders, but it works both ways.
Thanks for great add-on.
