Mail Tweak is an extension for Thunderbird 3 (with an older version available for Thunderbird 2). It provides a variety of fixes and enhancements.
Mail Tweak's user interface is in US English. An older version is available in Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, French, German and Polish.
Mail Tweak provides dozens of tweaks, which can almost all be enabled and disabled independently. A few tweaks are enabled by default, and some are always enabled.
For descriptions of all the tweaks, see: Tweaks
Using Mail Tweak
Configure Mail Tweak by using its Options dialog (or Preferences dialog, depending on your operating system).
To open the Mail Tweak Options dialog when you first install Mail Tweak, press the Options... button at the bottom of the About Mail Tweak window.
To open the Mail Tweak Options dialog at any other time, choose Tools – Add-ons. On the Extensions page, select Mail Tweak. Then press its Options button.
For a picture of the Options dialog, see: screenshots
After making a change, optionally check the box: Reload windows to apply changes now. If you check this box, then Mail Tweak will try to apply your changes immediately, and Thunderbird's main windows will be reset. Alternatively, restart Thunderbird after making changes.
Note: Reloading the Compose window does not always work, because Thunderbird might reuse an old Compose window that has not loaded the new settings. To work around this, restart Thunderbird.
