User info Filter by From field
Jun 13 2010, 4:26 pm
It would be so great if filters could be based on the "From" field!

I have a lot of folders, and many are "Mail from ...". The mapping from email address to folder name isn't algorithmic; I'd need to list all of those mappings. But I'd be very glad to do that instead of having to scroll my huge "All Folders" to show the destination folder, and then drag-and-drop the message.

Thanks very much for your consideration.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your request.
ASF is a Firefox add-on, not a Thunderbird one. There's no "From" field in Firefox, or is there any I don't know ?
The only one I know is on the "what should firefox do with this file?" dialog window, the "from" is the file's hosted domain and url.
Is that what you are talking about ? You can already create filters based on that "from".

Or maybe you forced the installation of ASF into Thunderbird ?
This is completely untested, and I don't plan on adding the support to it, at least not in near future.
But as you can see, I'm pretty slow to add functionalities and fixes, it may takes few months/years before I do it.
