Research numeral meaning? Rated 5 out of 5 stars


Thanks for software

What do the numbers mean - no documentation??

Hope to hear back

Yours faithfully

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

What do the numbers mean?

Thanks for your comment, I updated the description. The numbers are the number of messages by that same sender (or to the same recipient for the Sent folder). So if you have three messages from "Joe Doh" in your inbox, the number will "3".

Very Useful Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on allowed me to easily sort my inbox based on the number of emails I received from each email address, making it easy to go through and identify the top senders. I used this to identify large groups of emails that I could delete to save space. For instance, I found that I had over 6,000 email advertisements from a Groupon email address that I could delete! Thanks for the simple, useful application!

I do have one suggestion if possible - make the frequency count go solely based on email addresses instead of the full mime2DecodedRecipients and mime2DecodedAuthor attributes. In the Groupon case I mentioned above, they had used 5 different names in association with the email address '', which meant the Sender Frequency add-on treated them as 5 unique senders.

Version 1.1.0 coming up

Thanks for the suggestion, the new version 1.1 only compares based on e-mail address. However, I don't find that so useful myself, since for some mailing lists all messages are now counted as if they came from the same sender since "contributor1 <>" and "contributor2 <>" are now counted as the same sender. I think I'll go back to my version 1.0 and will implement some preference in a future version.

Great Add on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes it very easy to see how many e-mails are from a particular sender as well as being able to sort by sender to see who are the frequent senders. Has helped me reduce the number of e-mails in my inbox dramatically. One of my most useful thunderbird add ons.
