This is probably the only add-on that I've used for years that just keeps on working, long after everyone else has abandoned thunderbird because of its' constant extension-breaking twists and turns. THANK YOU for that!

I just updated to TB ver. 91.2.1 and Xpunge quit working. I tried disabling it and then re-enabling it, but that didn't work. Next I tried removing the extension and all its settings, then reinstalling it. This worked and things are back to normal. Great extension, really does the job.

After TB auto-updated to v91 the Xpunge add-on icon on the toolbar was gone. Disabling or removing the Xpunge add-on, and then adding the Xpunge add-on back to Tb91 did not [originally] provide the icon to select and add it to the toolbar. However, after restarting Tb91 multiple times the Xpunge icon mysteriously appeared back on the toolbar but relocated to the far right-hand position on the toolbar. (Maybe the last update on 10/11/2021 fixed the missing icon.) I'm happy to report that Xpunge is back working again to empty the trash folder and compact the folders as the developer intended it to be used by single clicking on the Xpunge toolbar icon!
The Xpunge add-on is worthy of 5 Stars!

Author won't fix it through script pretending it's a tb's issue.

why this addon's useless:

3 steps with addon:

1. click on xpunge button
2. the number of deleted emails doesn't disappear, so you need to click on trash again (he won't fix it)
3. click on inbox again.

without addon:

1. click on trash
2. ctrl+A & del button
3. move back to inbox.

Works well to help keep the inbox cleaner.

This used to be a great add-on. Now, sadly, it doesn't work at all. Clicking MultiXpunge in Thunderbird 78 doesn't do anything at all. The trash isn't emptied, the spam isn't deleted. Useless. Too bad.

Revised rating. When you do a fresh install of the add-on, the default settings are for the MultiXpunge to do nothing. And the settings are about as buried as can be - if you normally have the menu bar hidden in Thunderbird, you'd be hard-pressed to find them.

Why would anyone choose default settings that effectively disable the add-on?

And if given a choice, I'd rather have the Xpunge button than the multi version.

Nice and neat. I would be even happier if keyboard shortcuts are available.

Fantastic addon! Been using it for years. The update for Thunderbird 78 is timely. The loss of the xpunge button/option shouldn't be a huge deal. If you only have a single mailbox, choose that one from the "Multi" list.

Dear Theodore,
I have read your reply to my post, but not found any mail address where to write you and trying to access your site i receive a "Site Not Found" error message.
Anyway i can't tell you something more of what I already told in my Review. I described the problem: the XP button disappear from the toolbar after each restart of Thundrbird.
Did you experienced the same problem?
Thank you

Hi.

I am not sure how you are trying to access my site, the links on this page work for me. But on this add-on page for Xpunge, where you are writing the reviews (https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/addon/xpunge/), there is a link on the right-hand side that says "Support E-mail".

Can you please send an email there? It is not possible to provide the information I have in mind in review threads.

Thanks.

A long-time and hopeful user of Xpunge and MultiXpunge with multiple gmail, yahoo, and corporate email accounts on Thunderbird, I have found this add-on to be essential, but problematic emptying and compacting my yahoo Trash and Spam bins. For both my yahoo accounts, I invariably have to manually empty and compact these folders, and since it doesn't work, often get TB message to manually compact. With the amount of trash and junk emails exponentially rising, this addon's capabilities are a must.

This problem happens with both my Yahoo accounts, which I've removed and re-added on multiple occasions. It doesn't happen with my gmail accounts.

is it possible for you to make this plugin for Thunderbird 74.0b2 (I love it!)

Hi. From what I know so far, Xpunge needs a rewrite to be compatible with TB 74+. I will have to see how feasible this is and how long it might take, so currently I am not sure if/when Xpunge will be working on TB 74+.

The addon is great, but sometimes it causes to redownload whole folder once again which makes my folders 2x larger than it was before xpunging so I have to repair folder (and redownload it once more) to reduce space. If you have 30+ accounts and 150GB+ mails it is not always a good solution...
