I need to allow cc while disallowing bcc.
& my "to" is a regex..

why is this even an add-on? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this is what always bugged me about thunderbird. the kind of random uncontrollable search engine. this helps tremendously. should be just a build-in feature.

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It fails to do the most basic thing stated on the available document.

Must-Have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is so obviously needed that I think it should be integrated inside Thunderbird.

Great! This was the missing point... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So great, I'm now able to search even in very old mails. I love it!

TB45 : Working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There was no way to update to the newer gmailui-1.0-tb.xpi with the AddOn Updater (always gave a download-error) !
The good news is : after downloading the gmailui-1.0-tb.xpi manually / locally and installing (actually updating) from the saved file, it works in TB45

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-let-fixed). 

Great, but no global search Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Its a great tool, the only thing I find sad is that global search over all folders or Sub folders ins not possible.
I understand that there might be a reason for this behavour.
As a workaround I want to ask the developer to consider this feature:
* Add a setting 'remember search term' on/off
* When on, don't clear the search term field when the users cycles through the folders

Is this possible? Any other ideas for workarounds?
Thanks & Regards

Makes it possible to search all the ways I can dream of Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Superb time saver! This extension makes me not miss GMail anymore. And the help tooltip is actually really helpful.

Great improvement over default behavior + excellent developer support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Once you install this extension, you realize how much you missed it before. All the times you half-consciously thought "if only I could use multiple criteria or a regular expression here, I'd find that mail immediately"...

It is a pity that a Global search reverts to the 'old' way of searching, without regex and with very simple boolean logic. But you can't have everything.

EDIT - the developer fixed the issue mentioned below within a few days after I reported it. Well done, excellent support!
[There is one little glitch: if you put the Expression Search widget in the ToolBar, it is impossible to hide the Quick Filter Bar. Thunderbird simply doesn't allow it (in the menu: View... Toolbars... Quick Filter Bar). The empty bar keeps taking up space above the list of mails. (TB 31.5.0 on OS X 10.10.2)]

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.8). 

Please report this issue @ https://github.com/wangvisual/expression-search/issues with a screen-shot for the 'empty bar'.

I can't reproduce, yes the menu in TB won't work but I don't have the 'empty bar'.

Saves a lot of time Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very convenient for search, and also for saving vertical space Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Most useful add-on. And not only for the very convenient search operators it provides, but also because it can be placed in the menu bar and it allows one to hide TB normal filter, thus saving a great amount of precious vertical space.

I'd have one request: whether the appearance of the quick-filter buttons could be optional, so that people, like I, who don't use them could save some horizontal space in the menu bar.

Thank you for this awesome addon!

Excellent add-on, just one question Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent add-on that makes my life a lot easier when searching through messages. I have run in one funny where body:test would return no results but bodyre:test will. Could someone throw some light in why this might be the case?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.8). 

For version 0.8.8, the addon will try both text/html and plain text match against pattern for bodyre, but for searching in body, it's built-in of TB, I think it's only match plain text part.

So the real question is which one of your test is correct, did the mail message contain 'test'?

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is tremendously helpful! I've been using it for a long time now and still appreciate it day after day. — That said, it's functionality should be matter of course in a good mailer. Many thanks for your work!

Ctrl + Enter conflicts Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am using Thunderbird Conversation and Ctrl+Enter conflicts. Is it possible to assign a virtual folder creation to the different key? Other than that, it is great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.6). 

I tried Thunderbird Conversation and seems no conflicts, what conflicts did you see? Besides, Thunderbird Conversation has option page that can assign hot keys.
Thanks.
