Thunderbird: Move Messages (to SPAM) with Keyboard Shortcut

With the keyconfig extension you can attach little scripts to keyboard shortcuts. It took me quite some googleing to find the right commands for moving the selected message to a specific folder:

  • Download and install keyconfig
  • Right-click on your destination folder (here: SPAM) and choose "Prefences"
  • Copy the address of the folder (here: imap://koem%40blabla.de@capella.uberspace.de/SPAM)
  • Open the Add-Ons-Manager and choose Prefences of keyconfig
  • Create a new shortcut and paste this as the code: MsgMoveMessage(MailUtils.getFolderForURI("<the-copied-folder-address>"));
  • Name it, save it and assign a keyboard shortcut
