SpamCop and Thunderbord plug in


Recommended Posts


As you can see there is no HabuL component.

The only one I found is that


version is incompatibile with Thunderbird 38

It seems this add on are not updated from 2009

I'm using 38.3.0 of TB too. I installed the Habul extension v 1.20.0 some time ago, and have had more than one automatic update to TB in the meantime. No idea why the plugin seems to have disappeared.... :(

Couldn't the Habul v1.20.0 be re-uploaded to sourceforge, even if under a different page with credits and reference to the other page? (Even add a hash of the file for verification).

If you go to the link in my last post, you will see that 1.20.0 was removed because of a functional problem. (i.e. it didn't work correctly).

The link that was in post #16 ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/habul/ ) has no download link.

If you look at ( https://sourceforge.net/p/habul/code/36/tree/tags/ ) there are folders with different versions of HabuL that are downloadable. The problem is that the information is not in a .xpi extenstion format and therefore you cant install it.

It took me a while to figure out how to to convert the data into a working .xpi file. I did this with the version 1.20.0 and I have fully tested and it works just fine.

I also found a place to download HabuL v 1.14.0 below:

( http://kyoto-mz-dl.sinet.ad.jp/pub/mozilla.org/addons/108530/ )

I have tested this version and it works fine as well. It looks like someone made a copy of the mozilla addon website a few years back.

I am using the latest version of Thunderbird 38.7.0 .

the "SpamCop ID" is the 16 characters in your privet reporting address submit.xxXXxxXXxxXXxxXX{at}spam.spamcop.net

There is "no more official plugin" for TB because it is not supported, as noted above.

I was able to contact the developer of the HabuL addon. It is now again available on the Mozilla website, and there is version v1.21.0 which states it is compatible with Thunderbird 38. I have downloaded the new version and it seems to work fine.

See download links:
