Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The add-on is very good and useful.

I am rating it 5 stars but notice that it still doesn't work with the CardBook add-on.

Until it works, I have it disabled.

A vital plug-in to provide the crazily missing feature of Thunderbird of a normal simple-to-use practical address box that can take a list of addresses pasted in. Without it I would have considered Thunderbird not fit purpose rather than my main email client. Thank you for providing it.

Bonne extension... mais incompatible avec l'extension
"Reply to All as CC"
En effet, si MRCC n'est pas active, "Reply to All as CC" fonctionne parfaitement (et lors d'un "reply all", seul l'émetteur est en "To:", les autres destinataires sont en "Cc:"), mais si MRCC est active, alors lors d'un Reply all, tous le monde est en "To:"

Good extension, but not compatible with "Reply to All as CC" extension.
Indeed, if MRCC is not active, "Reply to All as CC" works well (allowing to "reply all" with only sender in "To:" and all other recipients in "Cc:"), but if MRCC is active, then everybody is in "To:" in case of "reply all"

Same comment post in "Reply To All as Cc" module page.

Great add-on with a few small issues. The To field dosn't expand with Thunderbird 60 so when you get the to many email's us Bcc instead warning you can no longer edit the text. Autocomplete doesn't play with CardBook, will only search the default collected addresses.

Very good add-on, thanks a lot. My only feature request: If you use the dark theme with TB, the "to" field when writing a message becomes black text on black background when it is not in focus. Can you change this, i.e. make the add-on theme sensitive?

version 1.9 still really good but, I've found a bug : in 'To:' field, I want to use 2 lists. I can write the first list name, hit enter, the members of the list replace the name (no problem about that) but when entering 2nd list and validating, MRC Compose show me a yellow message "Attention : il est conseillé de déplacer les destinaires dans 'copie cachée à:'"... and the To: field become unavailable. If the developper want to contact me (golfy free fr)

Thank you for your report !

About the bug : it's not a bug, it's a feature ! Really !
I added that as a "good practise" : the "To" and "CC" fields should not contain a lot of recipients, it is recommanded to use "BCC" instead. You can see it in the last image in the addon page.

The limit that triggers the warning can be changed in the préférence panel : second tab "autocomplete", second value "Nb destinataire maxi suggéré".

Please note that it is only a warning : it doesn't stop you if you want to add a lot of recipients. If "to" field is unavailable, then it is a bug. Please use the support email (defined in addon page) to explain how to reproduce it.

Cheers,
Michel

Works great, must be a default functionality in thunderbird.

Keep supporting, please.

Saves screen space by allowing to enter several recipients in the To: field. Could be used as inspiration for the following redesign of TB interface.

Many thanks to the developer.

As a side note, would it be possible to use a non-generic icon for the extension ? It can be very simple, based for example on something like: https://openclipart.org/detail/217810/purple-rounded-arrows

Thanks a lot for your feedback !
I added your idea for icon in github:

I love your addon. Did you notice that TB will need a (partial) compatibility with webextension soon? (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird/Add-ons_Guide_57). Will your addon be compatible? Thanks!

I'm using this with a mostly blind person, they wanted To, CC and BCC fields present, which it does do, but sadly, the "Reply-TO" is listed, checked in the gear, ghosted and cannot be removed. This is one field that I didn't want there, just means one more field for the person to tab past, can this be repaired soon?

And any possibility to add "To:", "CC:" and "BCC:" to the background text so the person can tell what field they are in with their narrator?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.3). 

Thank you for your interest in MRC Compose !

For the "Reply-TO", it is greyed in the gear menu because there is an option (in the third tab of preference panel : "Always show TO field") that is checked. It's the same for the field BCC. The idea is that the preference define a global behavior, while the gear menu define a behavior only for the current compose window.

For the other question and the background text, please use the support email to give me more details : what exactly is used by the narrator ?

Cheers,
Michel

Excellent add-on, but when you have a lot of contacts as I do (over 3000), when I start typing a contact, the MRC compose, instead of waiting for me to pause typing, immediately starts to look up contacts, and then when I type the next letter it starts again with the lookup. So it is very very slow to catch up with my typing.
There should be a short delay (maybe 400mS) to allow a user to type several characters before it starts to look up the address book.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.3). 

Thank you for your interest in MRC Compose !

I took care of large number of contacts, not as you suggested by a timeout, but in a simpler way : just a number of characters before starting search.
You can change it in the preference panel, second tab, option "Start search after nb characters". Set it to 2 or 3 to eliminate most of yours slowdowns.
Hope it'll help you.

Cheers,
Michel

Great add-on, increase functionality of Thunderbird.
But fail for news: groups, due to requirement to have "To:" field filled. It shouldn't be a problem to recognize news groups.

It helps a lot for regular mails but it doesn't allow to post replies to newsgroups. It requires TO field to be provided, which for newsgroup doesn't exists.

Thank you for your good extension;
But when I upgraded Thunderbird to version 51Beta, I couldn't send messages.
Please fix this bug.
Thanks again

Hi,
Thanks for your feedback.

For bug reports, please use the email support. It'll be easier for us to communicate.
As an example, the compatibility with TB51 is fixed in internal dev version and I could ask you to test it.

Conflict with Cardbook 10.7 - autocomplete address do not work

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Addon works as described.

However — and after a Thunderbird reset and some debugging work to figure out the cause — it seems this addon changes the HTML font setting in Thunderbird Options -> Composition -> General -> HTML to a size of "x-small".

Even a manual reset of the font size in a Thunderbird session is lost when Thunderbird is restarted.

Not sure if the problem is solely the fault of MRC Compose or MRC Compose in conjunction with another addon, but the bug does go away when MRC Compose is disabled.

I have been looking forever for this add-on. It allows me to enter 'cc' and 'bcc' fields from the keyboard (without using a mouse). Thank you!
