An extension for Thunderbird 3.0+ that allows you to view threads as "real" conversations, including your own emails. This extension also adds a bunch of useful UI features in the conversation view. Get a pre-built binary at the link below.

branch: master
README
GMail Conversation View
=======================

This extension improves the threaded summary for emails in Thunderbird 3.0. It
vastly improves the UI by including some ideas from GMail. More specifically:
- your own messages are displayed in the thread;
- you initially see summaries, they can be expanded to display full messages;
- quoted parts are "folded" à la GMail;
- fast links for replying (and possibly other useful actions).

For screenshots and a stable version, please head to [1] which should provide
you with a ready-to-install package.

INSTALL
=======

My setup is based on Linux so get a MSYS environment with a proper make and
proper tools if you are on Windows. Anyway, it isn't that hard, it's just a set
of commands to automate uploading to my website and generating fresh versions.
To build the .xpi, just do:

make package

If you want to develop and see your changes in real-time (assuming you have a
proper setup in your profile and you restart Thunderbird), you can link this
extension in your global thunderbird setup.

cd thunderbird
cd extensions
ln -s /path/to/this/folder

Alternatively, in your profile, you can create an empty file called
"gconversation@xulforum.org" in the extensions directory. This file should only
contain one line which is the path to this folder on your hard drive.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
