After installing this extension, which certainly does not require restart Thunderbird, a new filter is added quickly we will show only the messages that have not been answered, quickly locating them within the folder you’re viewing. Although it may seem very simple functionality, really, we can help a lot if our inbox is too full and we need to find what is important.
