My commonly used Thunderbird Keyboard Shortcuts. //Dedicated to Laco ;)
N - Go to Next Unread Message A - Archive Message CTRL+N - Create new Message CTRL+R - Reply to Message (sender only) Ctrl+Shift+R - Reply to All (all recipients) CTRL+ENTER - Send message CTRL+K - Focus the quick search box \ - Collapse All Threads * - Expand All Threads
With Nostalgy Extension:
ESC-ESC - Focus the thread pane ESC-M - Focus the message pane Ctrl-Left/Right - Scroll the message from the thread pane L - Hide/show the folder pane G - Open a specific folder S - Move the current message to a specific folder B - Move the current message to a specific folder and go there C - Copy the current message to a specific folder
Nostalgy introduces a notion of rule . A rule associates a folder to a message by looking for a substring of the From, To/Cc, or Subject headers (or a combination of them). A rule can be restricted to match messages only under a given server/folder. When a rule selects a folder for a given message, Nostalgy informs you in the status line. You can then use the Shift-S/Shift-C/Shift-G/Shift-B shortcuts to move/copy/go directly to this folder.
In the Composer
When typing in a header, it's possible to change easily the header to either "To:", "Cc:" or "Bcc:". To do so, you need to be at the beginning of the input box, and simply type "to ", "cc " or "bcc " (with the whitespace, without the quotes).
The ESC-ESC combination focuses the message body. The ESC-A combination opens the file attachment dialog.
Switch to new version of Thunderbird and install CustomizeHeaderToolbar Extension, then right click on header -> Customize -> Show -> Icons and add or remove items by dragging. ;)
