For those who needs to transfer all notes produced by Message Notes to other
add-on with the same functionality. Applicable while e.g.: moving from TB 2.0 to 3.x.

The msgNotes.txt file is pretty simple - can be viewed/edited with any text editor.
This is the container where MN places all created notes.
Each entry in this file comprises 3 lines and corresponds to particular note:
1. Message-ID of the mail the note is assigned to
2. Note's text
3. Some magic number, possibly a check-sum

For transferring all your old notes created with MN you need the two first lines.
Why doing so I just ignored the magic number from msgNotes.txt item's 3rd line.
I am not sure if it is ok so.

Create a saved search folder in TB, saved search should cover all TB folders.
Saved search criteria should use the "Message-ID" mail header field >>>
use "customized" in saved search options dialog.
Search criteria should look as following "Message-ID includes <message id>".
Now proceed iteratively:
- Take a note from msgNotes.txt, copy the associated Message-ID into clipboard
- paste Message-ID from clipboard into saved searched options <message id>
- let's TB to find the mail
- use your new add-on for notes (MessageNotes replacement) to add the note
created previously for this mail using MN -- again copy&paste from msgNotes.txt
into mail text

Surely, it is possible to automate this process by a script or small sw.
I did all that manually because script development needs a good testing
before getting applied. I hadn't have a big number of notes to be transferred.

A great add-on, but unfortunately there is no active development anymore. But you find a extended version here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=4276735#p4276735 See the last page of this topic, if the link there ( http://www.odois.org/temp/lulis/msgnotes-0.1.8-tb.xpi ) is not working anymore.

Message Notes 0.0.9 won't install with TB on a Mac running 10.5.5. I get the message "Incompatible Extension."

Any chance that this awesome addon could be displayed in a column instead of / as well as in the preview pane ? Thunderbirds tags are silly in that they list every tag you\'ve every entered in the dropdown list !!

Great add-on. Aren\'t you planning to add an improvement like in TheBat! mailer - to create a additional column in message list, so the beginning of the message could be seen even not clicking on the message. Very useful!
