My Reviews

Display Quota

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Lots of critique on cosmetic decisions:

- option "size of progress bar" (buttons "smaller"-"larger"), is dysfunctional here. the bar is always the same size. [but might perhaps be due to 3rd party TB-skin configuration add-ons?]

- I'd prefer color and layout choices for better contrast/readability. currently, there are 2 completely different layouts, one lime-green-number-on-native-skin-background (main window) and the other black-number-squeezed-into-bar-on-solid-green-background (read-message-window). in both cases, the chosen combination is mediocre.

- if there wouldn't be this 1990ies-"glow" effect in the bar which is frequently sort of grabbing my attention (if this is about synchronization acitivity: better to replace it by info only in case of syn-failure.)

but technically it runs well, so far [v0.3.8 installed on good ole TB60.9.1 only two hours ago]

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.8). 

IMAP Quota (Free Space)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

@pippo_franco: if you rightclick on any of your imap's folders, select "properties", and then, in the small thunderbird-native popup window, go to the most-right tab "quota" (or perhaps "contingent" or similar)...: What does the small thunderbird's popup window show there? Is it the server's disk quota (again), or your mailbox' quota?

If it's the server's quota too, there, then you discovered a bug that needs to be discussed with the helpdesk/admin of the server. Because any tool that uses imap-protocol's way of retrieving the capacity and its utilization (which is given to it by the imap server) would get the same wrong data.

@ options button / TB60: enable tb's menu bar and select: Extras >> add-on-SETTINGS >> IMAP Quota (Free Space)

Rating: Currently/Still using TB69 with IMAP Quota (Free Space) v1.2, which is quite unstable. Configured limits are 0/70/90, so there should always be data shown. Sometimes it indeed shows the small bar with data, sometimes not, sometimes on the 2nd/third/etc. attempt. Sometimes situation improves temporarily after rebooting TB.

Good: Config options, display fashion (small bar with distinguished colors and percentual values), if bar is clicked then it opens TB's quota tab where the most detailed data is available.
