In a little more detail...
I create addons for Thunderbird, have served as a Mozilla addon editor in the past, and am currently a Thunderbird core reviewer.
Most of my addons consist of attempts to push Thunderbird in new directions, and frequently have required changes to the backend to allow extensions to do new things.
Most of my current effort is devoted to my ExQuilla addon, which adds support for Thunderbird to use Exchange Web Services to access email and contacts.
Add-ons I've created
Thunderbird email accounts, including contacts, connecting to Microsoft Exchange Web Services. This is a 60 day trial of a paid add-on.
This add-on is not compatible with your version of Thunderbird because of the following:
- Add-on uses binary components.
Adds many new mail filter actions - launch a file, suppress notification, remove star or tag, mark replied or unread, copy as "read", append text to subject.
1) adds column with percent likelihood that a message is spam, 2) extends junk status column to show why a message was classified as junk/good, 3) adds an Uncertain folder for messages needing user decision.
Adds a new action to mail filters to allow playing a particular sound when the filter matches. Also includes several sample sound files.
Permits selective enabling and disabling of search indexing on folders or accounts - with inheritence. Also adds three columns to the Thunderbird message pane that are useful in debugging.
How to fix the core code Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As mentioned by others, this addon does not work with Thunderbird 38 due to an encoding issue. I've looked at the code, and presented the trivial change needed to restore read/write capability of template files. See http://mesquilla.com/2015/07/15/fixing-quicktext-addon-for-thunderbird/
I've contacted the author asking that this change be done, or someone else released to do the change.
