I have problems when I created the rule (label the mail) and executed it, but when I chose other mail, the label of the mail disappeared.

A must have add-on. It should be integrated into Thunderbird imho. Thanks for this one.


Keine volle Punktzahl, da beim Erstellen des Filters meine Einstellung des Zielordners durch die Wahl "Nachricht kopieren" anstelle "Verschieben" gelöscht wird.
EIne schöne Erweiterung wäre, wenn man nicht vorhandene Zielordner in dieser Funktion direkt anlegen könnte. Bei eingeschaltetem AddOn ist die Anlage eines neuen Unterverzeichnisses nicht möglich. Man muss das AddOn ausschalten und kann danach einen Unterordner anlegen.

So eine detaillierte Beschreibung wäre eher was für den Support.

Falls Du ein Standard Template (z.b. Basierend auf Absender (von)" benutzt ist das Standard-Verhalten "verschieben", nicht kopieren. Änderst Du danach die Einstellung manuell auf "kopieren"? Mit "benutzerspezifischen Vorlagen" liesse sich dies aber in jedem Fall bewerkstelligen.

Bitte entweder ein bug oder neues feature request auf meinem github tracker anmelden.

Im übrigen kannst Du mit meinem QuickFolders Add-on _mit_ aktivem filter assistenten neue Verzeichnisse erstellen. Benutze dazu am besten die quickMove schaltfläche: mails auf die Fläche schieben, dann eingeben:

(elternverzeichnis kann z.B. auch nur die ersten 2 buchstaben sein, z.B. für Kunden/Fred kannst Du "ku/fred" eingeben) - existiert das Verzeichnis kannst Du verschieben, existiert es nicht (aber andere Unterverzeichnisse existieren schon) gibt es den Menüpunkt "erstelle neues Verzeichnis Kunden/Fred". Dann erstellt QF das neue Verzeichnis und verschiebt die Mails hinein. Danach wird der Filter Assistent getriggert. (ach ja zum Kopieren, beim drag+drop [Strg] gedrückt halten)

Neue Verzeichnisse Anlegen automatisch ist schwieriger wäre aber eine mögliche neue Funktion für FiltaQuilla:


Does exactly what I needed, clone a filter. Great addon.


It's a little sad that Thunderbird needs an addon to create custom filters out of existing messages, but this addon solves this problem perfectly. Absolute must-have!


Very useful. I needed it only to export and import filters from my other computer. Sadly that is not a built in feature of thunderbird. The thing I like most about the addon is that it reuses the existing filters and does not reinvent the wheel. Very useful.
I appreciate the work and time creating this addon and bought a license. Keep up your good work :)


This should have been included in all Thunderbird programs.

This is real easy to use. It helps guide me through the process. It makes it easy to merge new actions to existing rules.



I've been using Thunderbird for a number of years because I just could't count on Outlook to move emails to the appropriate folders. Thunderbird and this add-on have worked without a hitch. This add-on saves me time and makes sure that important emails aren't lost in the flood of daily emails that I get. I used the free version until recently. The annual license is very reasonable and if it helps keep this add-on working then I'm all for it. I'm sure the developer isn't getting rich from this add-on, but he should get compensated for the time it takes to produce and keep it running.


thanks for the feedback. Indeed I am not getting rich, but I am pretty much doing this full time - I want to get to a point where this is sustainable at minimum wage, so I am happy about every single user who helps out with buying a license. Check out my other Add-ons QuickFolders and SmartTemplate⁴ when you can!


Ein wirklich hilfreiches und gut durchdachtes Plugin. Viele Plugins stellen es frei zu spenden, was sicherlich nicht immer den Aufwand deckt. Bereits die kostenlose Basisversion ist schon eine gute Sache. Die vielen Möglichkeiten der Pro-Version jedoch und der Service sind absolut ihren Preis wert.



I'm sorry but however good this addon is I can't use it - it puts a banner ad across the bottom of the screen with a flashing (!) "buy license".

This sort of thing should disqualify addons from being listed in the addon store IMO and I'll be petitioning for that with the Thunderbird community.

The addon seems in general to be alright, but I don't want shitty advertising distracting me when I'm trying to read emails.


Not sure how I'm supposed to reply, but I deinstalled. There was no facility shown as to how to cancel the banner, it was permanently shown when the addon is installed default. I wasn't using a premium feature, clearly I can't without buying a license. I did have a hack of the css to turn off the banner, but am not interested in using addons in that way - if you want to write addons that constantly flash on screen, that's your prerogative. It is FOSS and so a little adjusting of the css can remove it (and the code on github seems like licensing could be removed relatively easily) but I'd be wary of software written in that way, so I'm not sure it's for me.

Just to make it clear, I wasn't aware of using a premium feature, I just used the default install, I didn't activate anything unless it was a "drive by" install.

The notification could not be removed, there was no cancel button. The perpetually flashing "buy license" button was preventing me working.

Good luck to you; I appreciate you've created a good addon, but I wasn't looking for nagware or flashing ads.


You have 3 choices:
1 - you can deinstall the Add-on or
2 - do not use the specific feature that is listed in the notification bar.
3 - you can keep using the pro feature and be annoyed that it wasn't provided "for free". Note that the notification can be closed and it will not stop you from working

I would be curious on what choice you took.
thanks for the edit / feedback. Notification panels do have a removal button on the right, and if it is for a specific feature, the session should remember your decision and not flash it up again even if you use it as long as you have Thunderbird running. It does state which feature and the choice is either allowing free as in beer users access to the "premium" features in order to generate some interest in licenses or some other way promoting it which is usually inefficient. If you check the version histories of my Add-ons you see that I put a ton of time into feature development and (behind the scenes) write 100s of support emails for free (also for my free users). Working on porting the Add-ons to Thunderbird 66 is ongoing, support for next years ESR will likely cost 2 to 3 man weeks. That's why you see a lot of Thunderbird Add-ons that have stopped working with Tb60 - people do not want to do this type of work for free anymore. I am supporting my own Add-ons for 10 years now; had to build my own web shop (because Mozilla, unlike google, does not support monetising directly from their Add-ons "store") and I am helping Thunderbird with Add-on reviews and documentation. I have looked into other ways of monetising but I do not like ads or data snooping - the sort of stuff other Add-ons owners do in order to be "nice". Feel free to submit suggestions on making it better here if you still have a nerve for it: http://quickfilters.mozdev.org/bugs.html


Quick Filters & Quick Folders "a must" to enhance the overall Thunderbird experience. Developer is super responsive to any reported issues or questions.



I must commend this add-on developer, they are very conscientious and wish to do the best, even to the extent of making changes/improvements according to users requirements.

GREAT add on for Thunderbird!


Please, before you spend too much energy here, why not get it modified by filing a feature request or contacting me personally - http://quickfilters.mozdev.org/bugs.html
generally the one click solution for getting rid of Spam is clicking the Junk button, but I am open to add some modifications under your guidance - provided they are beneficial to the majority of quickFilters users. For now, you can remove at least 2 clicks by disabling Actions: "Display Filter List after Filter creation" and "Open Editor after Filter creation"


Somewhat convenient. But why doesn't the "Mailing List" option create a filter based on a List-Id header, which is standard for mailing lists???


good point - however - please go to my support site for bugs & feature requests:


ja heel graag een update
ik vind het een geweldige ad on
dank je wel



Great addon!
But, pls, update for TB 60.2.1.


Ok, I will publish the new versions soon - already have a new version here:
or hit me up directly through http://quickfilters.mozdev.org/index.html directly (mail link at the bottom)


A great add on which I have used for years. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Thunderbird 60.0b1. Hopefully, an update is in the making.



Using quickfilters-3.4.2-sm+tb in Thunderbird 38.8.0, Windows 8.1 64bits

If I right click a message which is in a local folder : "QuickFilters : create filter from message..."
I get an error : "Tried to create a filter 7 times, but didn't work out [and more text]"

Drag and drop gives the same error message.

(note : in Account Setting - Server Settings - Advanced : inbox is set to Local Folders, for all my accounts)

Any known conflict with some extension ?
(I have about 30 of them, if needed I could provide the list)

Edit :
most issues are already solved by the developper in the pre-release of this AddOn.


Please can you go the official bug site here:
38 is rather old as well, I am currently testing with v60. The 2016 ESR version was 45, the current one is 52, see also:


There is an annoying little message poping-up on the bottom-right corner of the screen, just above taskbar, near the hour. It appears each time one selects a message in thunderbird and change its label color priority (0 important, 1 work, 2 personal, 3 to do, 4 wait).

It say's "quick filters applies filters on the selected message".

This is a new and, sorry, seemingly boring and inconvenient feature.

Please, wouldn't it be possible to remove it ? That would be nice and great, at least to my undestanding, and from my point of view.


it can be by xnote++, 4 other users reported it at http://quickfilters.mozdev.org/bugs.html

I fixed it yesterday and the fixed version is here:
(all detail there) I will releasee 3.4.1 with the fix he coming weekend.


Very convenient, helps me organize my email. Thunderbird's default interface for configuring filters is a bit clumsy, this is much easier to use and manage.
