I was successful with simple copy and paste:
Opened source of mail which I wanted to us as mailing list template
Copied To: and CC: headers from source (Ctrl+U)
Created new mailing list in the address book, pasting all addresses comma-separated in the first line of the members list.
I had to clean out double entries in one case. But that's in any case ...
There are two options:
Open the compose window for the new email, then drag-and-drop the old email into it. Note that you need to drag the old email to the attachment area of the compose window (to the right of the address fields in the default config). Dragging to the email body does not seem to work.
Save the old email to a file (select old email, then ...
Source Markdown Here 2.11.4
Markdown Here lets you write email in Markdown and render it (make it
pretty!) before sending.
This is great for anyone who doesn't like fiddling around with
formatting buttons while writing an email. It's especially good for
programmers who write email with code in them -- it even supports
syntax highlighting. And for the ...
I'm sure there must be other methods to export mail from Thunderbird. But if you really have only html files, you could use this script as a workaround. You will lose sender, recipient and subject, but the body will still be readable.
for %%f in (*.html) do (
echo Content-Type: text/html > %%~nf.eml
echo. >> %%~nf.eml
Proof of Concept: userChromeJS addon + custom user script
To answer my own question: I managed to pull of this hack which deselects the current selection before the user continues typing.
If someone knows how to turn this into a real Thunderbird MailExtension, feel free to update this answer or start your own!
Install the experimental Thunderbird-...
To answer your first question this is called a 'push notification'.
Here is one resource I found on how to enable them http://www.solvemix.com/index.php/android-smartphones/516-samsung-galaxy-s6-gmail-push-notifications-are-not-received-solution
As to your phone not connecting first:
I do not belive this is possible due to the fact that by definition your ...
I fixed it by following these instructions by enigmail.net:
Check the contents of $HOME/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf. Make sure that there is a configuration entry pinentry-program containing the full path to a graphical version of pinentry as above. E.g.:
Then save the file.
Add the following line to your $HOME/.gnupg/...
I believe there is a way to have an always available list of Starred messages.
The best you may be able to do is create a Saved Search:
But you can create a new saved search. Here’s how:
1 Go to File > New > Saved Search…
2 Name it something like “Starred”
3 Set “Create as a ...
Here is my solution to the problem, combining some aspects of the other answers and overcoming limitations of those.
Advantages of this solution:
Open source solution, thus also available for commercial backgrounds
Really invisible, silent printing. No windows are popping up
The approach combines several steps:
Filtering of emails and extraction of the ...
You could use a (pretty small) python script like the one below, that will connect and get the first message from the sender you specify and print the message to standard output. Then, with munpack (package mpack in Debian) you can get the attachment and process it.
The message parsing can also be done in python, meaning you don't need mpack and your ...
You may use a two-step solution if the email server uses IMAP:
Download attachments from new emails to a folder
Monitor the folder for new arrivals and print them
For the first step, you could use a free product such as
Mail Attachment Downloader Free Edition,
Mail Attachment Downloader securely downloads and processes all your email ...
Create folder 'AttachmentsToPrint', in FilterQuilla check Save Attachments To & specify that folder
Make a batch/script file that waits 60sec (to give FilterQuilla time to extract attachment before we do something with it), then print file, then delete file
In FilterQuilla check Run Program & specify that batch/script file
Cross your fingers
Most servers do not allow this – that is, not in a standard manner that Thunderbird could support.
The only exception is if the server uses Sieve for filtering and provides the ManageSieve protocol, for which Thunderbird has an addon.
I don't have Thunderbird installed at the moment, so I can't test, but according to this page, you can change the user agent by adding a new preference in about:config, called "general.useragent.override". If you leave it blank, you will send a blank user agent.
No Message Pane Sort
I haven't tried it and it says 2011 in the documentation so YMMV.
I have been frustrated by this many times, but I don't actually want to turn it off because once in awhile changing the sort order helps me find things.
One possibility is to install muttator (you may want to build a later version), and push Ctrl-i when composing to call the editor. The default editor is gvim, but you can change the default editor by add the following to ~/.muttatorrc (create one if the file does not exist):
You can't html files contain message text only. Not enough info to create EML files. You need additional headers like Subject, From, To, etc. I know there are a couple of EML export plugins for Thunderbird.
After some research I found back how I did last year: I used EMail Address Crawler (a very old Thunderbird add-on).
open the context menu on an folder (of emails)
select Crawl folder for email addresses
choose the destination mailing list (or create new one)
choose some options, click OK
then the add-on extracts email addresses from the folder emails ...
If you have your own server you can install MailScanner and set "Zip Attachments = yes" in the configuration - this will combine all incoming attachments into a single .zip file.
When it comes to a client-specific solution you might be out of luck as incoming email integrity happens at the server-side unless you have a server that allows you to explicitly ...
If on windows, you could simply compress the directory where Thunderbird stores your mail.
On Linux, you can do this also but need something like Fusecompress
In either of these cases, this is only compressing the actual email messages and would not be as good (in the case of BMPs) as converting them to jpegs with compression. But it is transparent and ...
