How can I search by folder name?

Posted

Is there a way to search by folder name? When I receive project related emails, I move them to their respective project named folders I have created. Over the years I have created many project folders and sub-folders.

For moving messages to a folder, try this add-on: https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/thunderbird/addon/quick-folder-move/ To navigate to folders in the folder pane: https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/thunderbird/addon/quick-folder-key-navigation/

Thanks. I added Quick Folder Key Navigation, but have no idea how to use it. Any ideas?

After I installed it, I had to enable it in Tools/Add-ons/Extensions, then restart TB. There are 2 settings available from Tools/Add-on Options. It works as advertised: when the folder pane is in focus, type the first few letters of a folder name to jump to that folder.

Whatever I type causes folders to be highlighted with no relation to the text I type. Oh well. Nice try.

It might not work in the Unified view, instead of View/Folders/All.

Try the other add-on; Shift+G to search for folders.
