co TB3.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"Message Archive Options 5.0.0 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Thunderbird 3.1.13."

That's because 5.0.0 isn't compatible with TB3.1.13. Install an old version for your old version of Thunderbird!

Can I create difference configurations for different accounts?

For example:
acc.1 - Year - Month
acc.2 - Month - Day

and run it by special key or by RMB-submenu?

Might be just the addon I need to disable the anoying 'a' shortcut with which I keep loosing my emails.

The only problem is that it is not compatible with my TB.

Any plans to make this compatible with TB 3.1?

Thanks!

This is an excellent add-on and is very useful. Is Evil-Jeff continuing its development? I would gladly donate to see piviul's patch added in and the whole works made work with V3.1...

There is still a bug ... when I am in the root folder of my first create account and I try to press A then there is an error message saying that "The operation failed because an other operation is unsing the folder. Please wait ..." but if I am in a subfolder, it worked fine!

There are also some errors when the addon creates the subdirs that it will uses the ISO Date format as dir name, instead of the original foldername.

Your new code of the overlay.js works fine BUT you have to restart TB if you want that the option in dialog "2 Additonal Leves" with %F will work!

Update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks, it works. But not the way it should be.
When you have subfolders on INBOX your code uses the word INBOX as a subfolder name in the archive. So it only works when the folder is directly below the account name, like Trash, Sent, Inbox...

I know that you can't or won't iterate thru the subdirs but lets just use the folder name where the mail is in it which you want to archive.

The option %F doesn't work, only %f.
With %F I am getting the whole date string as directory name...

overlay.js patched Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi, the last 15th february I've send the patched overlay.js to eviljeff hoping in a fast update of the add-on. Because there are other interested in the patch I write the new overlay.js here:
--- begin overlay.js

var messagearchiveoptions = {

preferenceService: Components.classes["@mozilla.org/preferences-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIPrefService).getBranch("extensions.messagearchiveoptions@eviljeff.com."),



get monthValue() {return this.preferenceService.getComplexValue("monthstring",Components.interfaces.nsISupportsString).toString();},

get yearValue() {return this.preferenceService.getComplexValue("yearstring", Components.interfaces.nsISupportsString).toString();},

get keyModifiers() {

var modifiers=new Array();

if (this.preferenceService.getBoolPref("key.shift")) modifiers.push("shift");

if (this.preferenceService.getBoolPref("key.alt")) modifiers.push("alt");

if (this.preferenceService.getBoolPref("key.control")) modifiers.push("accel");

return modifiers;

},

onLoad: function() {

BatchMessageMover.prototype.archiveSelectedMessages = function() {

gFolderDisplay.hintMassMoveStarting();

var selectedMessages = gFolderDisplay.selectedMessages;

if (!selectedMessages.length) {

return;

}

var messages = Components.classes['@mozilla.org/array;1'].createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsIMutableArray);

for (let i = 0; i < selectedMessages.length; ++i) {

let msgHdr = selectedMessages[i];

let server = msgHdr.folder.server;

let rootFolder = server.rootFolder;

let msgDate = new Date(msgHdr.date / 1000);

let fullPath = String(msgHdr.folder.URI).replace(server.serverURI, "").substring(1);

let rootPath = fullPath.substring(0, fullPath.indexOf('/', 1));

if (rootPath.length == 0) rootPath=fullPath;

let yearValue = messagearchiveoptions.yearValue.replace('%F', fullPath);

yearValue = yearValue.replace('%f', rootPath);

let msgYear = msgDate.toLocaleFormat(yearValue);

let monthValue = messagearchiveoptions.monthValue.replace('%F', fullPath);

monthValue = monthValue.replace('%f', rootPath);

let monthFolderName = msgDate.toLocaleFormat(monthValue);

let archiveFolderUri;

if (server.type == "rss") {

archiveFolderUri = server.serverURI + "/Archives";

} else {

let identity = getIdentityForServer(server);

if (!identity) {

identity = getIdentityForHeader(msgHdr);

}

archiveFolderUri = identity.archiveFolder;

}

let archiveFolder = GetMsgFolderFromUri(archiveFolderUri, false);

let granularity = archiveFolder.server.archiveGranularity;

let copyBatchKey = msgHdr.folder.URI + "\0";

if (granularity >= Components.interfaces.nsIMsgIncomingServer.perYearArchiveFolders) {

copyBatchKey += msgYear;

}

if (granularity >= Components.interfaces.nsIMsgIncomingServer.perMonthArchiveFolders) {

copyBatchKey += monthFolderName;

}

if (!(copyBatchKey in this._batches)) {

this._batches[copyBatchKey] = [msgHdr.folder, archiveFolderUri, granularity, msgYear, monthFolderName];

}

this._batches[copyBatchKey].push(msgHdr);

}

this.processNextBatch();

}

document.getElementById("key_archive").setAttribute("modifiers",this.keyModifiers.join(", "));

},

observe:function(subject ,topic , data) {

if (topic!="nsPref:changed") return;

document.getElementById("key_archive").setAttribute("modifiers",this.keyModifiers.join(", "));

}

};



window.addEventListener("load", function(e) { messagearchiveoptions.onLoad(e); }, false);

messagearchiveoptions.preferenceService.QueryInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIPrefBranch2).addObserver("key", messagearchiveoptions, false);

--- end
I've removed the license block so please don't delete it from the original overlay.js!

Have a grat day

diff Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Your diff file won't work ... or I haven't found the correct syntax for "diffing" it:

patch < overlay.js.diff
Hmm... Looks like a normal diff to me...
File to patch: overlay.js
Patching file overlay.js using Plan A...
Hunk #1 failed at 38.
Hunk #2 failed at 50.
2 out of 2 hunks failed--saving rejects to overlay.js.rej
done

So please do just an update on the addon instead of posting the diffs here.

Folder structure Rated 4 out of 5 stars

We have done some little changes to overlay.js to have folder structure (root only or full structure) support permitting new %f (root structure) or %F (full structure) in the year and month options as asked from andras.tim, BlackForst and Illtud Daniel. This is de diff:

"Handy UI for the prefs, but I find the archive function useless without the possibility of keeping the existing folder structure in the archive - ie archiving a mail in 'Projects/New North Building' should move the mail to 'archive/2009/Projects/New North Building'. Any chance that your extension could be enhanced to deliver that?"

Yeah this would make sense! other wise the Archives function isn't so useful...

This is great work, though these options should really should be built into the thunderbird preferences, rather than hidden in the advanced config.
