Rated 5 out of 5 stars

EDIT - Thanks so much for the new option in a later version of v.3 to hide the toolbar when using CompactHeader! That was primarily what bugged me about MailHops 3. This is the 2nd time the dev has been responsive to a problem I had with the extension - very impressive! Back to 5 stars as a result ;)

Previous review:

I’ve been using MailHops for as long as I can remember and find it very useful and generally well-done. But, like the previous review from flagpole, I found the new toolbar to be too much “in your face”. It also has a dark font on a dark background for me, not sure why as the screenshots show a white font.

I use the CompactHeader extension, which worked fine with MailHops. If I wanted to see the full headers including MailHops, all I had to do is double-click the header or click its little + icon.

Nevertheless, I reverted back to v.2 of MailHops as the toolbar just made trying to read emails, especially the subject line, rather too difficult with this glaring dark toolbar immediately below it. I also don’t need the toolbar for every single email I get, I only need it when I want to check a particular email, which isn’t often enough to warrant having the toolbar show all the time. Perhaps there could be an option to not show the toolbar and to revert to how it was in earlier versions (or, if using CompactHeader) to only showing it when clicking the little + icon)?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.0). 

Thanks for the feedback, with the next release you will be able to set the style of the bar. hope this helps.

This is a very useful extension, which I’ve had since I first moved to TB several years ago. It also saves you having to separately view the message source in order to see the message headers, which it lays out in an easily readable format (unlike the message source).

However, this latest update seems to have changed something in the text entry boxes for search, quick filter and other similar boxes where you enter text. Eg, the search box for Search has shrunk in height, the Quick Filter box has shrunk in width but is bigger in height; in both, the cursor is now glued to the icon of the magnifying glass, so that the first letter typed has no space between it and the icon. If I disable MailHops, it returns to normal. This is in TB 38.7.2 on Mac.

I tried to get to the Support page listed here but couldn’t as it timed out...

Edit: Thanks so much, Andrew, for your very fast response! The new version fixes this problem for me :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.9). 

Hi, Thanks for the review. I didn't see that issue in TB 47 but the css could have caused this. I did isolate the css in 1.0.12 and it should fix this. This version is waiting review and should be available in a day or two. Thanks again!
