I've been using Nostalgy for quite a while and it's been one of my favorite add-ons. Unfortunately, the feature I use most is broken when used with Thunderbird 2.0. The (S)ave key no longer works, although the (C)opy and (G)oto keys seem to.


Also, it would be great if, while fixing the (S)ave key, the author also made the key shortcuts case-insensitive. I know the documentation says they already are, but they're not. Even under Thunderbird 1.5, "S", "C", and "G" wouldn't work while "s", "c", or "g" would.

Very good extension, highly recommended if you use folders. UI could use some polishing; integrating with TB's filters mechanism would help a lot.

My main request is that now that TB 2.0 has tags, making Nostalgy able to add tags would be very useful. I'm planning on replacing my hierarchy of category-oriented folders with a few task-oriented folders and the rest of the organization by tags, so I'll need to apply a whole bunch of tags quickly. Nostalgy would be perfect for this task, and I wouldn't think it hard to add. Just also make some way to add a new tag if what you typed doesn't exist (alt-Enter or something, keeping the normal 'enter' reserved for applying the current completion).

Nostalgy has become an indespensible add-on for me. However I just upgraded to Thunderbird 2.0 and noticed right away that they have changed flagged messages to stars and changed the keyboard shortcut from i to s. This conflicts with Nostalgy's save command which takes precedence over the star-message shortcut. Any way to remap one or the other?

Nostalgy does more for my productivity than any other extension -- in fact, given how much I use it, more than most other software on my computer.

Responsiveness is immediate and it's effortless to use. The only enhancement I'd want is being able to customize the keyboard mappings (see the Discussion section for more).

Many thanks Alain!

If you use a lot of folders and subfolders, this extension is a must. What I find most useful about it is that I can immediately go to any folder of which I know the name or part of the name.

great extension which gives you total and easy control over TB without ever recurring to the mouse. still not a 1.0 release, but it's already indispensable for me!

Great to navigate quickly. Don't forget to read the usage directions in the Addons->Options of Nostalgy, I discovered there it can even do more, like: quickly switch focus between the folders, threads and message panes, scroll the message without switching focus away from the threads pane, switch to "cc" and "bcc" in message composition.

Dreams for the future (aka request for featuritis to get the last point and make me go from 9 to 10): incorporate "ThreadKey" and "Maximize Message Pane" functionality, use eg. Shift-G to see only a list of folders with unread mail (and a count?), Esc-V for access to the view box? ;-)

This extension makes Thunderbird as efficient for me as the text clients I'd become so used to. Every serious user should install it.

I really enjoyed working with this extension in TB1.5 but when I moved to the TB2 nightly builds, Tb doesn't state it as compatible (although I see it's compatible with 2.0b2. Can you please fix this,
I'm really thinking of goingback to 1.5 just for this extension,

thanks anyway,
Dror

This extension greatly improves the workflow of using Thunderbird. E-mails can be filed automatically in the correct folders, but it's not like a filter, so you can see it in the inbox first, and then press Shift-S to file it away. The folder name completion is great, and the fact that you can just press a few keys to manually file messages in folders.
