SmartTemplate4


Welcome to the change log / version history of SmartTemplate⁴.
The extension went through a couple of hands of developers, I am trying to keep the latest version up to date in this tried and tested format.
Since Version 0.9.1 we show this page after a successful update of SmartTemplate⁴, but you can also download older releases by clicking on one of the Version numbers below.
Please Contribute to SmartTemplate⁴!

Prereleases & Prototypes (no warantees!)

Prereleases & Prototypes are currently only released via our Bugzilla Bug Tracker. All latest changes including ongoing work on bugs you have reported can be found on the Change Log of latest version.
A full list of mozdev download Mirrors can also be found here.

ATTENTION: All Prereleases & Prototypes include the full flag and flag locale for the current Build. Other locale can cause trouble as the translation is not over yet!

SmartTemplate⁴ is now available to support the next ESR release Thunderbird 60, which will be released in the end of May 2018 (see my video for details). Also SmartTemplate⁴ Pro licenses are now available which will fund more power features, support and futuree compatibility with Thunderbird. Please make sure to support the project - if you want a

As latest feature I also added the new %header.set()% function, which can be used to modify the subject line and even change / add recipients.

Please remember to support ST4 development with a donation, it is not easy to find free time now that my wife had to give up her nursing job because of health reasons.

Other Notes

Don't forget to use bugzilla to enter bugs or request features.

For your convenience, from version 0.9 onwards, these pages will display directly in your Thunderbird in content tabs so there won't be any additional browser necessary. We hope that you enjoy the new homepage

    It's the easiest way to get a license as you get to select an email address for registration and delivery. If you prefer, you can also go to the web shop directly: FastSpring Web Shop

    You can use SmartTemplate⁴ Pro on as many Thunderbird installations as you like as long as it has your registered email address on it. The registration email address is not given to any third parties, it is only used for order fulfillment and license verification.

    hdr: One of the following list {subject | to | from | cc | bcc | reply-to}

    regex: A regular expression within double quotes, e.g. "You got an email from .* \((\b[a-zA-Z0-9._+-]+@[a-z0-9.-]+\.[a-z]{2,4}\b)\)" - Note that this function supports match groups.

    group: The number of the match group, type 0 for inserting the match from the complete expression.

    Notes: if no match is found the header will not be deleted or modified in any way. Therefore it is important to do a visual check on all fields before you send of your emails. No error messages will be issued when no match is found. Prefix and append will check whether the value already exist and avoid duplication. The prefix command should not be used with address fields, instead use append to add more recipients.

    More information on regular expressions and examples can be found on the variables page.

  • My other Extensions - highly recommended


    QuickFolders (Thunderbird / Postbox / SeaMonkey)

    Takes the pain out of working with many mail folders; has currently 20,000 users and is 3rd of all top rated message reading extensions.

    quickFilters (Thunderbird / Postbox / SeaMonkey)

    Quickly generate mail filters on the fly, by dragging and dropping mails and analyzing their attributes.

    QuickPasswords (Thunderbird / Postbox / SeaMonkey)

    QuickPasswords (Firefox)

    This is a very neat and quick way to retrieve and use a growing number of passwords, without displaying them on screen or having to re-type them. Also supports renaming of multiple passwords!

    Titlebar Tabs Cleaner (Thunderbird : Windows only!)

    A toolbar button to remove the tabs from the Windows titlebar back to their original place. Provides an easy way to undo the changes introduced by Thunderbird 17 or switch between the two modes effortlessly.

    Zombie Keys (Thunderbird / Postbox / SeaMonkey)

    Zombie Keys (Firefox)


    Enter accents, diacritics, diaeresis, umlauts, ligatures etc. with keyboards of various countries (us,uk,ie,fr,it,ru,de,sv) - via easy to remember shortcuts or menu. Also supports all textboxes of the application (such as search, filters).

    Moves the Thunderbird menu bar to the top. Choose from a selection of visual styles. It is convenient to have the menu on top of the tabs like Firefox; this is also a good area for placing "global" toolbar buttons like Navigation or get mail.
