MRC Compose

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a MUST have for Thunderbird.
I'm having a problem with the latest version (2.0.2): it does not search in LDAP only local address books. Can you please fix it? Thanks.

[edit] After some more tests I found that when selecting only LDAP it works. Also works when selecting LDAP and a remote address book thru carddav/activesync (I also use TBSync and CardDAV and Activesync address books).
When selection local address books (including collected) and LDAP only local work.

Outstanding and Must Have extension. Though version 2.0.0 is already in the log it is still not available for download. Still showing 1.9.1. Please Mozilla approve this great extension.
Thanks to the developer for this great work.

LookOut (fix version)

A versão 1.3 não funciona no Thunderbird 38.
A solução passa por instalar manualmente a versão 1.2 e desativar as atualizações.
Se for feita uma alteração que permita a instalação sem ser manualmente altero para 5* pois a versão 1.2 merece as 5*

[EDIT 28-07-2019]
A versão 1.3.01 ainda não resolveu. Mantém o problema. O meu sistema é Ubuntu 16.04 + Thunderbird 38.6 mas tenho muitos colegas com Windows 7 + Thunderbird 38.8 e Windows 10 + Thunderbird 38.8. Todos têm o mesmo problema.

O principal problema aqui é o facto de o plugin estar definido como actualização funcional para a nossa versão do Thunderbird (38.x) e depois não funcionar. Se não for para garantir suporte a esta versão deverá ser removido da "minVersion".

[EDIT 31-07-2019]
A equipa de suporte resolveu o problema, também reportado no GitHub, em horas. Magnifico suporte.
Próxima versão já funciona e merece mais que 5* pois a atitude do programador é também 5*.

I just now known about this add-on.
Would like to use it, but I can't install it.
Not compatible with versions above 45. :(
Hope the developer updates it to be compatible with current versions.

Was really easy to make it work, and work great, with my TB 52.3.

Do the following (this seems like a lot of steps, but I like to do all baby steps):
1. download the XPI
2. rename the .xpi to .zip
3. open it with 7-zip (or whatever you use to open zip files) extract the content to a folder.
4. open file install.rdf
5. change this line "<em:maxVersion>45.*</em:maxVersion> "to "<em:maxVersion>55.*</em:maxVersion>" (I changed it to 55 just to be safe for future updates of Thunderbird)
6. save the file install.rdf
7. from within the folder where the files are, select them all and make a zip with the defaults for "normal" compression.
8. rename the file from .zip to .xpi
9. and lastly follow the very simple instructions from mozilla on how to install a xpi as an extension (

This is working great and its simple to use. It would benefit to have a little manual with many case examples for each potential use of the extension, since it looks simple but can be used in many places in many different ways.
But its not a requirement since the existing information on the authors site is enough to start using it.

I would like to point out another fact that made me give 5 stars.
I usually give 4, since there's always room for improvement: I sent a question to the author by email and... YES he answered and I sent another email and got another reply... WOW. He really is interested in helping and goes the extra step and gives nice replies.

Best regards to Kent James (from Portugal) and thank you for the work you put in this that is a great help to everyone here using it. :-)

Take care.
