If you use Thunderbird and are interested in “productivity” or just working your email smarter and more efficiently, you will like Quick File.
It is a Thunderbird extension that quickly files messages into the folder of your choice, the closest thing that I have seen to Mail Act-on for Thunderbird.
The extension’s preferences allow to set a user-defined hotkey to activate its filing window:
The developer suggests Control-Q for Mac users and that does work.
If you have selected a message and hit the hotkey, Quick File pops up a filing window:
Type in the first few letters of the folder into which you want to file the message, and it lists the matches. You can keep typing until there is only one left, or navigate through the options with the arrow keys. Hit return, and it’s filed.
You can get the extension from the Mozilla Add-ons site .
