My Reviews

QuickFolders (Tabbed Folders)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an incredibly useful add-on. If you use Thunderbird professionally and have a well structured directory/subdirectory organization for your thousands of emails, you need a way to get to the 3 or 4 main directories that you access most frequently. This Add-on provides that functionality. I tested it for 5 minutes and gave them the $15 fee for Pro version as a donation. To the creators of QuickFolders--- great add-on, thanks for doing this work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.14.1). 

Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just downloaded this and used it to fix a large Sent folder and another Sent subfolder which had been corrupted with duplicates and was slowing Thunderbird. As long as you don't overwhelm the Remove Dup Messages add-on with a huge number of sets (duplicates) it is great and reliable.
I found that it still worked on 40,000 messages with 14,000 duplicate sets.
Great Add-on

ExQuilla for Exchange

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been using ExQuilla for several years to allow Thunderbird as my email client to our corporate MS Exchange server. Easy to configure and well worth the price. Works well except for email accounts that accumulate 100's of emails in the inboxes before they are read and deleted.

I found that once I had over 150 emails or so in the inbox, ExQuilla (and Thunderbird) would lock-up while synching and updating folders. Could take 5-6 minutes several times a day.

Direct access through Outlook never has this problem, nor does using Thunderbird with the MS Exchange gateway DavMail. But ExQuilla is simpler to setup, so would be my first choice for email accounts with small to moderate throughput.
