hi there,

I am using Outlook for business and Thunderbird for personal use.

In Thunderbird I am using a really great add-on called Nostalgy. I wonder if there is a similar tool for Outlook or if something like Nostalogy could be done with VBA.

In Thunderbird, when reading a message I can hit the s key and a input line opens. I start typing a folder name and I'm presented with a (autocompleted) list of all folders containing the typed string in the foldername. I can then select the folder with the cursor keys and when I press enter, the message is moved to this folder. With the letter g I jump to that folder. Nostalgy remembers my joices based on some algorythms that analyze the mail header (I think). I can also set the preferred folder based on any kind of email header information. For example, the letter S would directly save the message to the shown preferred folder.

This is a great timesaver, since I do not have to navigate through the whole message store to find the folder I need. There are other functions, but s, S and g are the ones I use most.

From the home page of the tool:
Nostalgy is an extension for Mozilla Thunderbird whose purpose is to save time by doing more operations with the keyboard. If you want to use Thunderbird without sacrificing the productivity you had with good old mutt/pine, this extension is for you!

Nostalgy adds keyboard shortcuts to change the current folder, to move/copy selected messages into another folder, to add/remove/view tags; the selection of the target folder is made through an auto-completion box where you can type part of the folder name. There are also commands to improve the navigation between Thunderbird's three panes.
It would be great to have such a tool also for Outlook.

Could it be done with VBA?

Thanks

Daniel

Did you find anything interesting? I'm a frustrated new Outlook user who once said while using Thunderbird "I couldn't live without the Nostalgy plugin". Now I think I'm gonna die...

Seriously, that Nostalgy plugin for Thunderbird must have saved me somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes a day for the past four years. I badly need to find something similar in Outlook.

Thanks.

SimplyFile - absolutely the best. 50$ but well worth it as it suggests folders to file your messages by scanning previous messages. Works with exchange server well, gmail and imap dpesn't play nice with it though.

Yeah, I'm using SimplyFile since more than a year now. SimplyFile is simply cool! And well worth the investment!
