This is the only extension which makes a Thunderbird irreplaceable and useful again at modern time. I wonder why such kill-feature was not already adopted by Thunderbird team....

I've been using FiltaQuilla for a few years now. It has "quite a few" options to customize the filtering that allowed me to setup "quite a few" filters for diverse needs.

It has worked consistently in the background making my use of Thunderbird more productive.

I had to add a new of filters for some additional projects that came my way and hence had to pay attention to FiltaQuilla again. It helped to tune the email traffic exactly as I needed.

I am no expert in Thunderbird and FiltaQuilla but can quickly state that if one needs message filters (who doesn't?) then FiltaQuilla deserves a serious evaluation.

I have used this add-on for more than 10 years I believe. I "pinned" the Thunderbird upgrades on my Debian Testing system a few years ago because too much seemed to be changing! Recently I "unpinned" everything and started using Thunderbird 91. I was concerned that many of my add-ons would fail at this point, but was delighted to find FiltaQuilla works even better than before!

I have a lot of filters for several IMAP and POP accounts. I assist with running a podcast and several components of the system behind it use email notifications. In particular I receive episode comments this way, and can easily place them in a directory for moderation and processing.

This add-on has some great features that I use all the time.

Fantastic add-on. I get tons of email -- much of it spam, but a lot of it is from various vendors and such I have done business with. Sorting through all that email by hand took forever and so i was rarely caught up. With some of the additions in FiltaQuilla, such filters for checking the folder name and actions like "remove tag", and "add sender to addresslist", I've been able to quickly move all my mail into folders, some of which are final destinations, some of which are temporary holding areas (such as hold until read) so I can see immediately what email requires immediate attention and what can wait or can be safely ignored. It has made email handling so much more efficient for me. I love it.

What a superb product! It just worked! With the FiltaQuilla add-on, a job that would have taken me a day of error-prone tedium was complete in 2 minutes error-free. Download and installation was 5 minutes. The developers deserve medals and could teach companies like Adobe and Microsoft a thing or two. I made a donation, and I hope every user does the same. Many thanks!

This addon works incredibly well. I am using it to run a script upon arrival of new email and it works flawlessly!

Complete waste of time for my purposes. I have spent almost two days trying to accomplish one simple task, or at least,one task that sounded simple when I started trying to figure out how to do it twowhole days ago: When a new email comes in, I want a notification with the subject line. Mozilla helpfully deleted this ability from the Mac version a while ago, and everybody everywhere says "Use Filtaquilla! Use Filtaquilla!" Well, if Filtaquilla ever provided some way to do this, the documentation doesn't exist anymore, and every single thing I tried (from launching a shell script to running an applescript command to using a javascript alert) either had documentation that was flat-out wrong, documentation that simple didn't exist, documentation that consisted of nothing but a broken link, etc. This has been a huge, frustrating waste of my time and I wish I had never heard of this add-on. There is no point to developing a complicated addon if it is not possible to find documentation for how to get it to work right!

I could have spent much less time simple finding another email client, one which will actually tell me WHAT EMAILS ARE ARRIVING.

This sounds like a feature request - why don't you raise an issue on the github:
https://github.com/RealRaven2000/FiltaQuilla/issues
Just push the [New Issue] button and I can help you deal with it. Remember the review tool isn't really a good place to help you. Note that the notifications at the moment are done by Thunderbird, but a new "custom notification" action might add some value for other users as well. It's actually much harder to suppress the built in notification than adding new ones.

Fantastic addon, fundamental for those having non-trivial message/news feed rules (e.g. messages in feed "Foo" with subject "Bar" or "Baz"), since the Thunderbird filtering features get cluttered very quickly.

Thanks for a (hopefully) great add-on! PS: 'Do not notify' is translated horribly into German, have someone who actually speaks the language check the translations. I had to change TB to English to make sure I was doing the right thing.

Edit: Do not notify doesn't work, thus add-on is useless to me

Kein Ahnung warum da "nicht ändern" steht. Das sollte wohl eher "nicht benachrichtigen" heissen?
Try to insert it as the last action (after move mail or whatever you do) - I think Kent implemented through a hack: it by correcting the number of new messages. I will update the documentation site accordingly.

I love the Print-action. This makes my work easier.

Yeah, I just fixed it for Thunderbird 78, see:
https://github.com/RealRaven2000/FiltaQuilla/releases/tag/3.0pre44

I might need to do some back-porting for THunderbird 68 too, not sure if all features still work there.

...on top of that, Thunderbird has removed xbl bindings (the whole foundation for the custom Elements that the filter editor UI of FIltaQuilla is based on). I am still trying to crack that particular nut before we even can get back to fixing features - compatibility with Tb78 is the biggest problem and the first one to solve. I would encourage you to add one issue for each broken feature here, so it doesn't get lost:

Yeah, and the best is "expression search / gmailui" that hasn't been updated since tb60 & adds body regex & many other regex options for javascript filtering in tb.. when the author of filta"quilla" never wanted to add regex filtering for the body. this addon's very limited to which parts javascript filtering can be applied.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

I got your feature request - generally if the author of an Add-on has github this is the best place for asking for new functions. Downvoting usually has the opposite effect; it's just unnecessary pressure - consider a lot of Add-ons are free to use and take a freak-ton of time to deveop / update and fix.

FiltaQuilla has some great features. The one we miss the most since it doesn't yet work in TB 78 is the "Do not notify" option. I'd be happy to make a donation to support continued development, but can't figure out how to do that.

I am currently working on Thunderbird 78 conversion, please subscribe to this thread:

You can donate via my quickFilters donation page (I think you can add Filtaquilla to the comment / subject line while donating)

My company is called song craft studios btw.

FiltaQuilla was brilliant, I hope donation I have made helps toward making it compatible with 78. As others have said, automatically printing emails saves hours - certainly worth another few $$$ on a license fee when its updated.

Thanks - I am still checking my donation payments and cannot find anything wiht a Filtaquilla reference (I guess you used the donation link for quickFilters? - paypal makes it kind of difficult to search for) - get in touch if you can just to make sure this transaction wasn't lost!

what is it with addons regularly becoming incompatible with thunderbird? the extension works fine when it does, but messes up the filters when it is incompatible. would give full 5* if did not invalidate filters when incompatible. maybe set them to inactive somehow?
Edit: in case it is unclear, i do not blame the developer for extensions becomming incompatible, on the contrary i appreciate the effort put in so far and realize they are not to blame. furthermore, i hope that average-Joe users (me) complaint is forwarded to the core TB devs, as it seems they lost touch with the base.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

This comes from Mozilla's constant changes. They have a big one in preparation the switch to "mail extensions" which is what Firefox did a few years back when _they_ pulled the plug on legacy Add-ons. Thunderbird uses the Firefox code base (mozilla-central) as foundation, so they had to eventually follow suit.

This means Add-ons are only allowed special restricted APIs for carrying out their tasks - these are not complete!

Since we are not there yet (I would say not even 5% of what sophisticated Add-ons need in the Mail sphere) there is an interim step - packaging the Add-on as a "mail experiment". but this takes time and resources (and will still break functionality if not done correctly) - we have spent 250hours on conversion efforst for my Add-ons, but the paid licensed ones will have to be completed first before I can do it with the "free as in beer" ones. It is very hard to find developers with this knowledge!

If you are or know a developer who would like to get involved please feel free to leave a comment here:
https://github.com/RealRaven2000/FiltaQuilla/issues/64

If you want to help fund raising for converting FiltaQuilla consider buying a license for quickFilters Pro.

Such an awesome addon. I can't wait to be able to use it again. Miss it so much on TB 78.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Thanks - this will definitely come! I need it myself... but I need to device a strategy as I need to both fund the work and get enough time from my developer - we are currently focusing on getting QuickFolders and SmartTemplate ready. Then quickFilters and then _definitely_ FiltaQuilla!

Well, this is so wonderful addon plugin, I used to auto print my woo-commerce orders. I have one problem if someone can help please suggest, when the thunderbird receives an email, it prints automatically, but the problem is the billing page print so long, as I am using small billing machine, even I try to install printing tool addon but it is not compatible with thunderbird 68 version, how to set the page margin from the bottom so that it prints till the end of the text, not long plain page after the text. I hope you understand what i want to stay, Someone suggest me that there are other settings related to automatic printing for printingtools but printing tool adon is not working.
