I have just started using TB 31.4 and am planning to move contacts (about 1400 from Outlook) into the TB Address Book. Many of my contacts have multiple email addresses, more than five telephone numbers, and more than two street addresses.

In doing a small import test I noticed that TB only has space for five telephone numbers and two email addresses, two street addresses. Is there a way to add more so that I do not lose this data on the import?

Is there a way to rename telephone number fields (as almost no one has a pager anymore)? Can you create a third street address location? I understand the use of custom fields but that seems less than satisfactory method.

There is an addon called 'MorefunctionsForAddressBook'. See link below.

scroll down to the bottom to see the download link, which looks like this; Download MoreFunctionsForAddressBook - 0.7.1 version (TB 3.0 or higher)

Download .xpi file to desktop or downloads file.

How to install addon: In Thunderbird

  • 'Tools' > 'Add-ons' OR 'Menu Icon' > 'Add-ons'
  • Click on the gear wheel icon and select 'Install addon from file'
  • locate the addon .xpi file you downloaded and click on 'Open'.
  • Once installed it will appear in the list of Addon Extensions.
  • You will need to restart Thunderbird.

This addon offers more fields etc and much more eg; importing etc.

Toad-Hall, Thanks for the quick response. I did install this Add-on and tested it a bit. It does add five new email fields, and the possibility of ten custom fields. One nice feature is that it allows user naming of the four original custom fields and the 10 new custom fields. its not completely clear how one goes about importing data into these new custom fields (Vcard seems the way to do it) and there is no mention of field mapping using the default Outlook import which is preferred.

I will need to do some more research and also consider the fact that this Add-on may or may not be supported in the future. Ideally I still would like to be able to do it natively in TB.

Anybody have any other suggestions?
