Thunderbird - Not So Much for This Group

Threaded View
I'm finally starting to get a little like for Thunderbird as an email  
client and news reader.  It has its issues and its still a lumbering  
process to block a single user, but for Usenet I can just hit one key  
and a thread just disappears.  Over on RCM I can selected a dozen  
political threads, and hit the kill key and they are completely ignored.  
  The next time I visit the group they don't even show up.

Just don't expect to join multi part images together..

the newest version of T.B.  voided all those old add-ons that could do  
that..

T.B. does however decode a lot more image types that Grabit..

K.  Highlight the unwanted threads and hit the K key.  They all get  
marked ignore,and on the next visit they don't show at all.

So I have to acknowledge that they actually exist by highlighting and  
then hit the K.  Is the a upper K or a lower k key??

Just kidding Bob, I have been using Thunderbird ever since Outlook  
Express went into the history books and never knew that.  Thanks!!  Give  
yourself a attaboy or gold star or what ever trips your trigger.  You  
helped a old man cross the street today.

So, if I accidentally use the magic K on one of your posting and I want  
to undo the dastardly whoops, what is the reverse engineering trick??

Thanks again!!  I will try to use wisely.

Les

Thanks Bob,

There is lot of stuff in T-bird that I will never know about or even  
use.  It has a lot of features.  There are a few things that I wish it  
did have.  Such as what Rocky said about "joining multi part images  
together."   I have heard about add-ons but that just makes things more  
complicated sometimes.

Again that for the tip.  Have a good week.

Les

I've long since lost interest in assembling multi part binaries from  
newsgroups, but I do remember the day...

Hey Bob,

If I understand your question correctly.  What I would do is type your  
name in the "Filter these messages search field or type <Ctrl+Shift+K>
Under the search field you can turn on or off various filters.
Such as [Sender] [Recipients] [Subject] [Body]
Your choice would be Sender with Londe in the search.

BTW I only started using the feature in the past 6 months or so.
I only use the features that I need and little more.

It is very quick and helpful to find that email you were sure you
sent or received but can't remember when.  Then sometimes you
just remember it but can't find it because it was only a text
that you sent on your phone.

Have fun!!

Les
