ThunderSync

Not What I Was Expecting - Too Complex For My Needs Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

I just wanted to export single or multiple contacts as a .vcf file, not establish broad addressbook synchronization. Simply, I just wanted another drop-down file format option for .vcf when exporting.

Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (2.1). 

Mail Merge

Easy to Install and Use and Works Well For Smaller Lists Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

For mailing lists of 50-250 addresses, this works perfectly and a great solution over using a 3rd party service or trying to setup PHPList or some other server-side mailer.

It's an easy multi-step process. Install the Add-on. Compose the message adding per-recipient customizations. An easy one is to just change a generic "Hi," to "Hi {{FirstName}},"

Save the message as a Draft, but before closing it, choose File -> Mail Merge. It'll go through and create an unsent message for each recipient listed, looking up the replacement values in the address book (default) and doing the swap. So since the messages are now created and residing in the Outgoing folder, can inspect them for a final sanity check before sending.

To send the messages, click File -> Send Unsent Messages. It will churn through them sending each one individually, which creates a copy of the message in the Sent folder.

It's just that simple, really. Seriously, if you only have a dozen to 50-or-so people to send to, use this vs trying to setup something on a server or using a 3rd-party service.

FYI, it takes a while to send individual messages using this process, but it also takes a while using other solutions. The difference is you do not have to baby sit through the compiling/sending but it's not instantaneous either way.

Duplicate Contact Manager

Finds dupes, but that is all Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

It did find dupes, but that is it, so it only gets 2 stars in my book.

Pros: Identifies dupes. Cons: does not allow for specifying criteria of dupes (name only, email only, both), does not actually allow editing of found dupes (either winner or loser) despite claim, does not allow or provide merging of dupes, does not allow or provide for limiting across address book collections.

Not what I was hoping for or what was promised. Using Thunderbird (Portable) 3.1.11. It is a time-waster and people that actually need to manage dupes in their address books should look elsewhere.
