How do I search the folder tree by parts of a folder name. Is there a folder library similar to the bookmark library to aid folder organization?

Veröffentlicht

How can I search by email account folder names and bookmark folder names by keywords or parts of folder name? Is there a way to enter and associate keywords to email/bookmark folder names?

We file all our email transactions and bookmarks in an inverted tree structure under the appropriate ISP account and user name but often end up with duplicate taxonomical entries under multiple ISP accounts such as one for Roadrunner or Google-mail address for the same Windows user account and name. I sometimes create an identical folder in both accounts. Being able to search by foldername across email accounts in the same Windows username would be wonderful to correct bifurcations in folder name taxonomy.

What am I not doing right - Please?

Thank you kindly - Chris

I use the quick folder move add-on - it offers a MRU list and a text box into which you can type a folder name, with an incremental live search.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/quick-folder-move/?src=api

You my also find the QuickFolders add-on useful.

I also wonder if your filing under ISP/account is the best way to go. I'd look at dis-associating messages from accounts by filing under Local Folders in an account-agnostic style.

I am not aware of any way in that this may be done.

Personally if I have a deeply nested folder and want to be able to find it quickly I just add a dummy bookmark of that name & if necessary with tags on that. At least then I can search for and open the bookmark then check its location.

Possibly someone has written an addon to do this.

Thanks john,

I thought there might not be an easy was to do this. The issue isn't only about bookmarks. I also run into this heavily in Thunderbird trying to find messages about a project and I have filed in the inverted tree (root) structure that we all know and love. I'm an old telenet guy from 1975.

 I guess what I'm looking for is a method of displaying all the folders at once like we can do with bookmarks.  Then I could do a visual sort and see that I have a folder such as Email\Phred/Local\Materials\Aluminum\Channel\Nick@Metalsplus@wi.rr.com and Email\PhredandJan\Local\Boat-Repair\AluminumDeckingRibs\AccountsRcvbl@Metalsplus@wi.rr.com.  All bogus examples but you can see that I filed them in a logical structure but need to sort through and either link or move them to a common folder.

I'll just keep grinding on and hope for the best.

Hilfreiche Antwort

Dear Zenos,

Thank you ever so much. That was exactly what I'd wished for and need. I have installed it on all five of my computers.

I have been working on electronics and computers component level and programming since I was a Ham radio operator at age 14. This is one of the few times I've ever asked for an answer to a question and had it so fully satisfied by someone else rather than having to muddle my way through to a solution on my own.

Now that might not seem to be much praise (if you figure I might be 15) but I was 14 in 1963 and I held the position of senior corporate technical support engineer for Data General Corp. (old mini-computer manufacturer) I've been working on computers since bits were wooden!

Anyway ... THANKS .. I really mean it!

Chris
