THIS THUNDERBIRD ADDON IS NO LONGER MAINTAINED

This addon is no longer maintained and does not work with recent versions of Thunderbird. The original author has no plan to continue developping the tool and advise users to look for alternatives such as:

Summary

Nostalgy is an extension for Mozilla Thunderbird whose purpose is to save time by doing more operations with the keyboard. If you want to use Thunderbird without sacrificing the productivity you had with good old mutt/pine, this extension is for you!

It is especially useful if you have long folderlists and need to sort emails into those folders.

Nostalgy adds keyboard shortcuts to change folder, move/copy messages, with folder name auto-completion (using only the keyboard). It also includes a system of rules to suggest a target folder for saving messages; re-creates Eudora's Alt-Click; facilitates navigation in the 3-pane window; makes it easy to change between To/Bcc/Cc fields in the composer. All that with the keyboard only!

Other keyboard actions include: changing focus between panes, scroll the message while keeping the focus on the thread pane, changing header in the composer (To/Cc/Bcc), adding an attachment, hide the folder view.

Installation

The easiest way to install Thunderbird is through Thunderbird`s addon page. It will automatically update itself when new versions are released.

You can also try the latest development versions from https://github.com/nostalgy/nostalgy

Note: to produce an .xpi file from a git clone:

git archive --format=zip --output nostalgy.zip HEAD

Authors

Alain Frisch is the original author.

Many users contributed patches, in particular to adapt Nostalgy to run with newer versions of Thunderbird. They are credited in the CHANGES.txt file.

Special thanks to Klaus Buecher, who contributed a significant rewrite of the code base to make it run with TB 68, and to Claas Augner who helped in the reviewing effort.
