Mark Read on Reply

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension works a real treat especially in the new Thunderbird 115 version. I didn't think it would work based on the download information but it works perfectly. This is something which should be native to Thunderbird because it adds one additional step after you reply to an email to go and mark it as unread. I don't use the mark read on viewing because sometimes you will skim through some emails to work out which is the most important to answer the quickest. I have this feature turned off as standard but this mark read on reply does a great job. Well done developer ! 100 out of 100 !

this has been one of my favourite add-ons for a long time but I have just been forced to update to the latest version of thunderbird and now it doesn't work..... I hope you can soon get it fixed for people that have come to rely on this daily

this works great but I would love to see a single button in the top menubar of the compose text window. Last colour just had an icon you select and it would pick up a colour that you always used for the reply. The way it is set up now it just uses an extra mouse click which slows you down marginally.

okay, I have been using this add-on for about a week and have an additional comment on this is why I have come back to edit my review which still remains as five stars.

I often reply to a text and answer questions throughout the text just by using a different text colour so when someone sends me an email I would just break it up with red text and answer the questions as they have written them. Always the text arrives in black and I will reply in red so I only have one colour option in the selection palette. To speed up the reply and avoid an extra mouse click each time I would like to make the following suggestion....

If you only have one colour that you use in your replies then it would be best if this were selected by just clicking the three pencil icon logo itself just once to bring up your colour automatically. At the moment I have to do press the three pencil icon logo and then select red (which is the only option) if I was using multiple colours then I would be happy for the multiple mouse clicks but when you only have one colour that you are using it shouldn't require multiple mouse clicks and it should just revert to your standard colour just by clicking the three pencil icon logo. This would speed up the replies marginally and avoid the requirement for double mouse clicks. The three pencil logo can stay where it is in the reply window, it works well where it is located and requires less mouse movement than the previous add-on I was using which was in the top of the menubar (last colour) I hope you consider these suggestions for what is a very valuable and much used feature

A really big thank you to the people that are supporting this program. Honestly, I find it to be the very best option I have and use it many times every day, it is invaluable in my business and saves me from continually repeating myself in emails when customers ask for information. I just wanted to let you know that I am truly thankful for your ongoing support of QUICKTEXT

Thank you, thank you, thank you

I am using version 53 of Thunderbird and this extension works as advertised. It is a big timesaver for me and works similar to an old extension that became incompatible with thunderbird over the years. It is great to have this feature back. Thank you

I have been using this little program for a number of years now and it enables me to send individual emails out to my customers rather than BCC copies or having our customers emails listed to everybody. Great little program, 10 out of 10!
